You could set it up for road use, but you'd still have a mtb frame. Kinda like Cadillac Escalades are trucks, but you wouldn't go off-roading in them. Parts wise, I'd get a rigid fork (drops weight and increases pedaling efficiency), slicks (less resistance) and if you really want road bike type positioning, mtb drops (like On-One Midge bars). Throw on some foot retention and you should still be way under the cost of a new road bike.
