Advice appreciated

Which would you upgrade next if you were to choose between:

1) LSD
2 wheel drive is better than 1 wheel period
2) Step tranny upgade
I've thought of getting manual swap done, but i think i'l stick with spet for now. I think i have enough power at the moment, but if i went with tranny upgrade i'd get more aggressive cams and headers later on.
3) Suspension (coils and anti roll bars)
After i got lighter wheels and strut bar. I noticed considerable change in handling... i like... i would like coils.
4) BBK
I've replaced OEM rotors with Zimmerman (+sporty street pads), but that clearly isn't enough.

I just realized that this section might not be the right one since this isn't track car.

Well since you are not going to be taking this car out on the track. You want to go for the looks and therefore this is my pick.

1) suspension. Lower stance always looks good.
2) BBK. Always a looker!
3) LSD
4) Step tranny upgade

Don't get me wrong... i do drive it hard. Most of my mods have been performance minded rather than just looks.

6-speed manual NO QUESTION. I mean you have lots of power it seems and even with one wheel drive, I would have more fun with open diff and 3 pedals than a step with LSD. GO WITH THE MANUAL :
