Look into getting the sway bars upgraded. Prolly the best bang for the buck upgrade for any Miata.

Get a good alignment on it. I couldn't believe how much that changed the handling on my Miata. It was like a different car. (In a good way!)

Getting a sport setting alignment and sway bars would make your car handle way better than it already does. Chassis stiffening would bolster it to a degree, but not as much as the former 2 that were mentioned would.

New drive belts.. Does that include the timing belt? water pump?

Racing beat swaybar, koni's and coilovers and make it an STS autocross car?

(look in project cars on this site for recipe)

What he said.

Also, plan on replacing your valve cover gasket and CAS o-ring sooner than later.
