I started out in the ACVW world as well. The ACVWs are different than Volvos though so don't think some of the items are as simple as a VW.

For the suspension, look into the IPD springs, swaybars, etc paired with Bilstien shocks. Simple and works.

Wheels, yeah have fun with whatever you want. Plenty of options as your wallet allows given FWD offsets and adapters.

The whiteblock swap is an undertaking, but can yield substantial power levels. It is a good motor for the 250-350 range IMO. Lots of information on that.

I would leave the interior and exterior alone. The Stormtrooper look is the haut right now.
