    -Stiffer springs to front and coilovers to rear.
    -Rebuilding an LSD

    if so, would the 24v head be a good idea?

    That is same block that Omega A 12V, 24V block has some minor differences, 24v is impossible because finnish laws. Allthough thats not really better than good ported 12V head, lighter it is...
