Re: what cam?
EF serI cam will fit easily and cost you bugger all. You will notice the main difference will be uphill and pulling a load. She will be a bit quicker off the mark, but not that much quicker. Still, for $50, you can't go wrong! :)
I would suggest mild headwork, worth about $300 (plus gasket/bolts, another $70, call it $400), and the EF cam, total about $450 or so. IMO it'll give you better performance than the Crow cam for a similar or slightly higher price.
Best acceleration mod is definitely the driveline though. 5-speed and a 3.23 or 3.45 diff, you won't recognise the car!
