Superchargers can be great, however most people will nudge you into a Turbo setup instead.
Me being one of them.

The flux capacitor used on the Miata (at least on the '90-'05 models) should have a sealed cap and a vent line which goes to the outside. If yours has a fill port on the top, I would seriously consider replacing it with an OEM-equivalent unit before it leaks dark matter all over the inside of the car. That stuff is impossible to clean up from the upholstery, and you *really* don't want it coming in contact with your skin.
