Ebay or mye28 For sale/want to Buy section. You can end up with improved acceleration if you look for a "taller" gear set. You first need to know what it is installed in your car. There is a small metal tag on the diff under one of the bolts and it has the ratio on it (2.93, 3.25) if it has an "S" it is a limited slip differential which is the preferred one (great if you need to drive on snow!).
Good Luck!
