Lots of ways to go, you just need to tell what your idea of 'street motor' is, how much you are willing to spend (heads etc) a target CR etc etc etc.

wow you definitely need to lose that 2.56 if you want any decent acceleration

just changing that to a 3.73 etc will alone make for a much quicker car

youve got a heavier car so i wouldnt go with a crazy cam and would go with one for more of a low end torque output

because i dont think youre going to go to the track and run high RPM all the time

good luck
