I would also look at making sure the front end can fit a nice 235-40/17 tire, that would give the the best chance of getting the power to the ground.

I would also look at getting a good clutch kit, LSD is going to be mandatory as well.
Thank you for some real answers Bob. My economic situation wasn't part of my OP, but oh well.

I was planning on race clutch and LSD, but wasn't sure if the tranny/drivetrainn could handle that power. I don't want to snap the input shaft or halfshafts or something. Kind of want to run street slicks and a wheelie bar, because why not?

However, I may be looking into a fox body
Rule of thumb:
NEVER trust anyone with your car or your girl.
Either way, you could get a rod thrown in both.........
