It's completely stock right now.

It's my DD, but I plan to auto-x it when it gets warmer.

if you think you're going to get serious with AutoX, bypass the springs and save up for coils.

A Short Ram intake > Cold air intake as well, as throttle response is key. Not sure if they even make a short ram for the MSM, nor how much of a difference either makes on it.

Negatory. Most suspension mods will fuck your classing unless you spend more $$$.

Now, to completed ignore what I just said, Big Enchilada from Flying Miata. You will be in love.

Thats a no go in the big enchilada.
If I had an extra 4k laying around, I would buy an old s30 lol.

Looking to keep it in the $200-$350 range.

Re: What should I buy next for the MSM?

The Proxes R28 is the best tire I have owned yet. I can imagine another street tire performing better than these lol.

I think I'm getting a AEM short ram intake. People have reported 25+ more whp with just a air intake upgrade. And AEM is the cheapest.

Hopefully I get an oil-less filter with it. I heard the oiled ones can mess up shit.
