as far as converting the rear drums to disc you can go with something like this http://www.summitracing.com/parts/WIL-140-7144D/ . as far as gaining power it can be endless it depends on how much money you have, a good starting point would be a cold air intake , tune up, the TB Mod, change cooling fan to electric fans, hi flow exhaust, 180 themostat, the list can really be endless.
