Post Autocross NB Build

Hello guys,
I am going to start a new project car soon and wanted to know opinions and/or inputs on what I have planned. hopefully some more knowledgeable members can point me in the right direction so I dont make this build more trouble than it needs to be.

So I am going to start with a Stock 1999 through 2001 NB MX-5 w/1.8L
My plans are to achieve 180~200 HP pushing 8~11lbs of boost while still keeping the car a controllable, light, agile, corner killer that we know it is.


WEIGHT REDUX!!
HardDog M2 Roll Bars
Mtuned Engine Coolant re-route
K&N Cold Air intake
Power Pulse Header by Racing Beat (Later Replaced by Turbo Manifold)
Borla 11842 Exhaust System
SuperMiata BigGripKit (Coilovers + Sway Bars)
949Racing's Iridum Plugs and Wires Heat 7
good-win-racing's MIATA BIG BRAKE KIT, V4, w/ Six Piston Calipers! + RedStuff pads
Advanti Racing Storm S1 15x7 w/ NITTO NEOGEN 205/50/15
MegaSquirt ECU
949Racing's twin clutch & fly wheel
Flyin Miata Custom Spec DIY Turbo Kit w/ Garret 2560R


Please provide any input you feel is necessary, cost cutting, personal examples/experience, bias, anything to help a new MX-5 owner. also gonna post pictures and videos as I continue to develop the build.

I would stick to a more proven suspension either being the 949 XIDA's, FEAL that was re-engineered in conjunction with Goodwinracing or AST's if you are in the 1500+ price range.

Skip flyinmiata as you are much better off going with Trackspeed engineering's new EFR log manifold. You also don't need a header if you are going turbo and most NA exhaust systems are not designed for turbo setups. Do it once, do it right!

Mtuned reroute over BEGI or Flyin' Miata...

If you are not planning on running track days most competitive auto-x cars skip the added weight of a rollbar.

This list looks to be not to well thought out for a competitive car, i would hit the drawing board again

Enjoy and goodluck with your build!

Sorry, didn't realize that flyin miata sells the Mtuned reroute but i would support some vendors that really are putting in the time and effort to develop the car more then just being a complacent street car with the ability to go track if you want to be fast and reliable.

AKA Trackspeed Engineering, goodwin racing and 949racing.

What's a stage 1 brake kit?

Why would anyone use EBC?
