buy an early model year miata 4k max with hard top, no rust, good body, mostly stock, including the plane ticket to fly where such cars exist.
1.8 vvt flat top swap buy an early model year miata, 2K max.
TSE turbo kit 5K? with EFR 6258 turbo.
Coolant reroute, crossflow radiator, gauges, sensors, electronic boost control solenoid 1500
Megasquirt 3x basic? Not sure of the exact megasquirt you'd need, but they run between 400 and 1400 depending on your effort, or someone elses. 1.4k max
Good 205/50/15 tires on 6UL 15x8 rims 1200
949 Racing Big Grip Kit iirc 3k
Hard dog or blackbird fabworx rollbar 350-700 depending on options
All New fluids for your new old car 300 for amsoil good stuff
4 wheel Big brake kit with dual master cylinder 2k minimum
Bushing kit (hi_im_sean sells the best one) 600 iirc
Plus other maintenance stuff...
22,500 or there abouts
Not really what you were asking, but that's sort of the general rundown of quality mods that people do over time to their miata.
Or buy a trashy as **** 1990 miata for 1000, buy a cheap but decent quality turbo kit from MK Turbo for 1500, still get a megasquirt 800 bux, some cheap somewhat decent injectors 200 used...
2500 plus tuning if you don't learn yourself for a 200whp shitty looking, zero maintenance done, fun miata.
