You've got two fans...? Every Miata with A/C has two fans... but one of them only comes on when the coolant gets high, and the other only when the A/C is on. Have you done the dual fan mod to make both fans run 100% of the time?

There are a lot of things you can do to fix an overheating problem... but be a little more specific? What exactly are you saying? Under what conditions is the temp high? Where do you live? Is it just a summer thing? How high is it getting? What are your current cooling mods? Is it just the coolant temp or the oil as well?

Lower thermostat
Water wetter
NACA duct
Automatic OEM Radiator
How about relocating your intake for cold air
Radiator reroute
Remove A/C
Smaller intercooler
Colder spark plugs
Radiator brace cover
Oil cooler
IC sprayer
Water Injection
Change oil
... there are a lot.
