Here is my quandary.
For one thing, I don't know **** about suspension setups that are available for the miata, so I don't know how much I am looking at spending for a "good" street setup. I am looking to stay around stock ride hight but be able to handle well, and perform under much higher than stock power production.
If you had about $2500 to spend and were going to be making around 250 HP at the wheels and were currently sitting on stock suspension and the stock 5 speed what would you suggest?
The 6 speed I am looking at would cost me $800, and then I need to think about weather or not I want to swap rear end gears... the 6 speed may be a bit short geared for the 4.3 Torsen that comes in my 99 5 speed. Non-MSM 6 speeds had the 3.9 rear end, but the MSM did come with the 4.1, so the 4.3 may not be horrible... not really sure.
So, should I skip the 6 speed and spend 2K+ on coilovers and other suspension upgrades, or $1700 on coilovers and get the 6 speed? Or (hardest of all) get the 6 speed now, and save up more money for the coilovers and other suspension stuff?
Any suggestions (other than to go **** myself for asking to be spoon fed) are appreciated
