Welcome. I'd start with pcv reroute. Then egr blocker plate exhaust and EFI live tuner. Getting rid of the pcv and egr are the best to make your engine last longer.

Thanks alot guys- ive got some plans for this baby.
Im ordering a transgo jr shift kit this weekend, and the next check ill pick up an exhaust and the dsp5 switch- i dont want a v2- frankly i dont have time to mess with it- but id likee to run some of idaho robs tunes.

any ideas on how i could pull that off?

You can just buy one of their pre tuned ecms, so its all plug and play. Usually works like you send them your ecm overnight and they will send you one in return with the dsp5 tunes loaded. so all you have to worry about is mounting the switch somewhere. A cheaper alternative to the whole V2 setup.

that would be through idaho rib's company right? if so that sounds like the best option for me- plus a keylock dsp5

I keep hearing that the guy is an absolute genius, plus his tunes are safe for the stock(ish) tranny- i know this is hard to believe but im actually doing this mostly for the fuel economy. i drive and absolute sh*tload, so every bit helps
