The biggest single gain will come from better compound tires.

Second biggest gain will come from a limited-slip differential

After that, get some good shocks so that your wheels won't hop. (In truth, the KYB AGX's may be better in this department than the Konis)

After that, you can play with spring rates to move some more weight to the front.

couple other things to look at are upgrading the anti sway bars, poly motor mount inserts

and if you wanna get crazy with it, there's the new comp enginering radius rods

all will help to rid you of wheel hop
