The only thing I'd do is to set a little more neutral camber on the fronts with those bigger tires. This change on my gen1 truck really cut down on the understeer. I've driven nice handling cars, and if you get the front geometry right on the MM, it will corner up there with the best of them I've actually bent into a corner. The 4wd like a little more caster with the bigger meats, too, for a more positive self center. When I had 265/55/15's on the 85 4wd, I could take the outside line on an ATL I85/85 carnival ride ramp and out corner a 300Nissan TT by 3 full car lengths by the merge. turbo was a necessity for the power to do so, but it was cornering bite that made it possible.
Now you need a gen1 6g73 head and a 2.4rwd block and the turbo plumbing and water rerouting bits and the 14 turbo and i/c and you'd have something that would make you forget that s/c 3.0. And surprise the hell out of whatever you pull up to the redlight beside...
