Hey guys so I'll be making a build thread soon. I'm a noob I've never had a built car before and with the Miata in it's current state it's the closest I've ever been. I bought built a Engine(block)/Trans/Megasquirt from a forum member.

Getting a '03 VVT Head. I want to upgrade the valve train for slightly higher red line and better reliability (is that even a thing). With the VVT Head I will be adding the 10AE Intake Manifold which I already have.
Supertech Valve Springs 1.8 Mazda
If i go with these at a heavy double spring what else do I need to upgrade? The head has less than 40k, I daily the car, will be doing track days and maybe some autox.
Is it worth it even to open up the head? I rather do it before I put the head on. What other upgrades would be worth it?
I was doing some research and cams play a role from what I see. Intake cam will be stock from my understanding the exhaust cam is the same and as such will re-use the exhaust cam mod. Will the new valvetrain present a problem?
I was thinking the double heavy springs to red line around 8200-8400ish and have extra breathing room so i can beat it everyday and have peace of mind??
I'm so confused any insight on this would be appreciated.
I will be going with a small turbo sometime this year possibly or early next year (really when I see a good deal on the forums). I want to drive the car NA for a while and see if I'm happy that way.
THANKS for any input!
