well the split port setup involves the the heads and intake off of a 97+ truck 4.2 or the 99+ v6 stang, the split port has two intake tracts one a long intake runner style for increased torque and a shorter style intake runner for high end hp, the truck system actually has butterflies that switch between the two tracts based on rpm, i don't know the specifics about the system, you might wanna check out the sticky for the 4.2 swap at the top of this forum,
you can go to blueovalchips.com for your chip, but you are best off doing all of your engine mods first and then getting a chip to help the puter figure out how to utilize the new go fast goodies. the tb, ask thomas, and do it yourself, it's not to hard to do.
as to suspension, someone will chime in with there .02 soon, i don't have anything more than rebuilt front suspension with the stock springs and kyb front shocks, can't tell you if it made any difference or not because i got the 94 lx this way already.
and if it's worth it, well it depends on if you feel like it is or not, alot of people will prolly say no because it is a v6, but i happen to like how my v6's handle since they are lighter, more nimbler, although it will take more stuff to get it fast, that's a given, but i like the challenge. too bad i haven't had time to do anything really in the mod department than just a few bolt-ons, been way too busy with work, but i'm sure i'll get around to it sometime.
