No experience in ice racing nor knowledge in regulations.

Are you allowed to swap? I know there are rules for the tires you use but that's about it.

Installing higher rate springs and some bigger sway bars is always a plus regardless of what kind of racing it is. Less body roll the better. A basic b20 swap would most definitely put you over the edge without breaking your bank. Fairly cheap swap and has quite a bit of torque to get you out of the corners. If swaps aren't allowed then d16z6 with the si tranny would definitely be better than the stock dx non vtec engine.

my buddy was doing ice racing in a subaru last year he was saying that he wishe dhe could get more travle out of the suspesion but not get the body roll that comes with jacking it up. i guess if ur hard core and its allowed (dont know rules either) tub it and move shock mount points if $ and skill/tools allow keep your centre of gravity low with a lot of travell i would say

^^doesnt really make sense. Increased shock travel will result in more body roll. If you reduce shock travel, you decrease body roll. Unless you mean on rebound you extend the shock but then again it will directly relate to body roll. Jacked and high spring preload would probably work the best. You never want to eliminate body roll, need it to be controlled to certain limit, otherwise you'll spin out or under steer. So in reality, body roll is what keeps you coming around a turn at higher speeds.
