Do a full PI swap, a supercharger, get some gears(4.10s 0r 3.73's), and do some work with your suspension and some drag radials.

most supercharger kits will come with everything you need to install them. I prefer Kenne Bell superchargers, they have instant power throughout the entire rpm band and will take a bone stock 97 gt to 425hp without any other mods for around 4000 bucks. They also come with a retune so you don't have to buy a seperate tuner. look them up on the internet and you will see what I mean. As for the gears, thats always a matter of personal choice. If you are going to do alot of other mods you don't have to go with the biggest rear gears out there. Sounds like you already have a great exhaust set up so your good there. As as far as the suspension goes, I'd say drop it at least an inch and a half, put in adjustable shocks and struts, get a steeda bump steer kit and some x2 ball joints, replace all your rubber bushings with energy suspension polyurethane ones and consider fully adjustable upper and lower rear control arms. You would also need some caster/camber plates for your struts. you can upgrade to cobra brakes on the front for around 500 bucks and that should be good enough by itself. Lastly, I don't know of any shops in Ohio, but livernois motorsports is just down the road in Illinios. They have a web site if you want to check them out.
