I am glad to see that you finally got Brainy's point.

You have not mentioned much about your tune. Too much retard in the wrong place will certainly have an effect on how responsive the motor is.

I am not fully convinced that you have addressed other areas that reap good benefits before doing something drastic. And I mean things that are in your budget, and fit the rules of your class.

2 cylinders, 1 turbo.

This 2:1 format is popular for many other things online, so why not?

Have a kid then sell the Miata. Then the boost response won't matter.

Automatic transmission swap and better brakes. Hold the throttle open.

Turbo diesel swap.

V8.

Payoff the inspector guy with sexual favors.

Find the smallest turbo with a twin scroll turbine & run a quick spool valve.

Go commando.

Actually, I already had a 2 seater convertible when we had our first child. So naturally, shortly after she was born, I got in that 2 seater convertible and went out and bought another 2 seater convertible. I still have both. Boost response still matters.
