I forgot the big swaybars! They make it feel much more sporty and composed in the corners as well. Get them from Flyin' Miata or Racing Beat or pick them up used like I did.

I landed a brand new Racing Beat Tubular Front Sway off the forums for $125.00. I am tellin' ya, hit them up daily and snag things as soon as they pop up.

I got my Flyin' Miata Dual Exit Exhaust, Magnaflow High Flow Cat and Resonator off Craigslist for $200.00

About to pick up a '99 Exhintake Cam, 2 practically new Fidanza Cam Gears and modified open cam OEM Valve Cover for $250.00 I think its a steal, also seeings it's practically drop in and won't have to mod anything myself.

Yea, I was as surprised as you, he was about 5 minutes from my work. When I was talking he said he bought miatas and parted them out. He had 2 exhausts, one being the one I bought off of him. He said it was off a '94 that he bought from Florida.... Whether the story is true or not, whatever, haha. Condition, welds, and price we're all good. He wanted $250, I got him at $200.00.
