    The answer is:

    "it's your ride, do what you want"

    the only difference in transmission aside from the obvious is a slight loss in power to the wheels

    the response to modifications at the engine is the same

    will you net a lot of power gain from bolt ons? not really, regardless if you have a manual transmission or automatic, n/a bolt like an air intake, exhaust, header ect are not going to blow your socks off.

    what does blow your socks off is forced induction, but with an automatic that presents a whole new set of challenges.

    my advice is to spend your money on handling modifications, those always pay off no matter how much power you have, or whether or not you have auto or stick

    absolutely!!!
    I agree with orin, work on the handling.
    springs&struts or coilovers, rear sway bar and a front strut bar.
    slap on some 18s in at least 8.5 width and its nice.
    speed is great, but only if you autox or drag.
    ^^ u can't really "slam" on 18s u can on 17s and it rides so much better.
    Rock 17s
    I would hold out until you can afford either the 2nd generation or 3rd. The 1st generation is quite out-dated in looks and performance.
    im automatic :p
