By definition you can't drift a FWD car since drifting involves overpowering the rear wheels and using the fronts to steer. The fact it's automatic makes it even harder. As far as how it is on the car, if you can't afford to fix everything, don't do it. There's a reason why most drifters drive crappy cars that look like they've been to hell and back.
From what i recall theres only 1 or 2 cars that are fwd that are classified as drifters.
1)With Automatic its going to be VERY VERY hard.
2)Engine Wise:: i would say just get a cheap RWD car and go from there, but if you really have to. INTAKE/ EXHAUST/ and Some Work to the block for that Needed torque. Maybe even a Turbo.
3) Your going to need something STIFF for Suspension. Upgraded Endlinks,Toe Arms, can a Camber kit to give you more camber and control. (Your Choice of Coilovers)
4)Wheels- Are your choice, But something with a Stiff Wall will help greatly for handling
5) Setting it all up will be all up to you. Some stuff may be custom..
In my personal openion, for all the money you will spend with parts, research, and all the other good stuff. You can own a 240, Rx7, or a corolla GTS/SR5. That would be my choice. Like is said it just my opinion, but i like what your doing. Trying to be different.

I used to drift a lot with my old 240sx and sometimes I perfered to use the E-brake to get me sliding and sometimes I would use weight transfer (Scandinavian flick of sorts), but when ever I was mid drift and needed/wanted to add angle I'd just pull that e-brake.
As far as FWD drifters they used to be popular in Japan back in the day and Falken even had a CRX drift car that they used for a while, but the only car I've seen that did any good FWD drifting was my buddy's Altima. He would go turn for turn and be right on my rear bumper. Don't know how he did it though.

I used to "drift" in my grandma's fwd buick skylark if I had a bunch of people in the backseat. Didn't need the e-brake at all, just a quick flick in the rain and she'd go sliding (the car, not my grandma). I wouldn't recommend this though, and was probably due more to bald tires than my skills, but it was funny!
