A clutch, exhaust and probably the FM II looks like it will get me there.

Yes, thanks, the BEGI S1 seems like a decent choice too. In the end I guess my choice will likely depend on what car I find and what year it is, since between them and FM there are some differences. Pretty well either would make the power level i'm looking for.

The funny thing about turbo Miatas is that once you've made 180whp you've made 250...

Unless you're barely there all on bandaids.

Proper engine management with some headroom on injectors and such will allow you to enjoy wastegate for a while, and then gradually bump it up as you please.

Boost is addictive...and you're kidding yourself if you think you'll be content with some arbitrary goal. Leave headroom and be happy, because once that bug bites it keeps sucking, and the only remedy is a twist of the MBC.
