Headers and a flow-through cat. You could also upgrade the clutch on a manual, add a limited slip, and bolt on some traction bars. Mount the motor and tranny with heavy-duty poly mounts. Experiment with different tires until you find some that grab to your liking. Shave some weight from the back end of the car, to bias the weight more towards the front.
