Looking for advice on next upgrade to 2012 Miata

Postby KariemA035 » Fri Nov 09, 2012 3:37 pm

I'm trying to decide on my next move. I've got an 2012 PRHT Auto (yeah my wife doesn't want to drive a stick in traffic). That being said, the miata is a daily driver with no autox plans...well not yet anyway. I've installed the smart-top module and RoadsterSport Q. Oh this is running the non-factory upgraded suspension. I'm thinking about installing the RB sways (front and rear) next. Do you guys think I should upgrade the end-links as well or leave the factory and spend the cash on something else...like upgrading the x-brace?

Take a look at our Project 2012 thread if you have not already (that is my wife's car so everything is 'wife save' or 'wife approved').

Indeed our RB sways are the natural next step. If staying with stock height and not autocrossing then you can stay with stock links.

I have read the thread (a few times now) and it's been a great resource. I ordered the "Q" because of it...which we love by the way.

Sways have been ordered and now to the next step. CAI or not.

What I didn't see on the thread was if you upgraded the intake. You suggested the AEM intake to other users, but didn't mention what's on the PRHT.

Is the gains vs cost and wet driving concern worth it? Living in Austin, we don't get much rain so the wet driving issue might be paranoia, but its still in the list of "cons". Would it make more sense to keep the stock intake and replace the exhaust header?

We have not done intake on the project 2012 yet, but will get to that. Unless you use your Miata like a 4x4 to cross rivers there is no wet concern.

Thanks for alleviating my wet driving concern Brian!

I've gotta say I'm really impressed with Good-Win racing. The fact that you guys are out there installing and running the products you sell (in real world environments of racing and street) and you give honest feedback is a wonderful way to do business. The forum is a great community and inspires confidence that if one should run into a problem or have questions, it will be answered.

Ladyblaze, if you have the power hard top, get the smart-top module! $285 may seem steep, but it's so worth it! We had our miata for only 3 days before I told my wife we had to get one.
