    it's personal preference.

    chrome would be the best . and if you took that motor out of the xsi what did you do with the shell. that motor is worth 3000. i had one in my old ef and loved it better. and you might want to check the trans tag and see if it is one that has lsd. mine did and it was so fun driving in the snow. very hard to find swap. i would trade my gsr for it in no time.
