You should make it an awesome street rig.
Swap a d44a and find one with an LSD. Build a stroker, a real CAI, a 99+ intake manifold, a throttle body, a header and an exhaust. Find like lowering springs or maybe upcountry coils if you can't find anything good. They are stiffer so less body roll but you'll be an inch taller. Bilstein shocks. Get all bushings for the suspension to tighten everything up.
Start lightening things, remove anything unnecessary
At least like the spare, back seats if you don't use them. All that sort of stuff
