Superchager is the last thing to bolt on (also going to do a jackson racing header. Im thinking about doing head work, but from what i hear these engines flow extremely well from factory) Plan is to probably do a PWR Rad, and a coolant re-route so that i dont end up overheating cylinder 4

Save yourself a couple hundred bucks and find a 2001 Miata header. Same sized tubing as the JR, equal length tubes.. 4 into 1, half the price, no hp difference on a dyno. Being that you have the 1.6 though, i'd first check Miata.net for compatibility. As for clutch, go with somthing very Mild so that you don't want to poke your own eyes out driving in traffic. Mine is already a little too touchy. A stage one sport clutch will be more than you need on the SC'd 1.6, because if you break 180 whp on a Mustang dyno.. I'd be amazed.

modded some new parts onto the trucks engine... new starter, and new a/c belt tensioner, as the old ones were both making disturbing noises.

picked up a set of Cerwin Vega 6.5" door speeks. Theyre suppsoed to be ralgood. Better than Alpines, we'll see once i put them in. Damn Miata's having to take whole door panels off to get at speeks.

Cerwin Vega makes great sounding subs, nice to know how coaxles sound.

Did a bit of work on the Geo today. Changed front/rear diffs, transfercase and tranny fluids, engine flush with new oil, Put a cone filter on the intake, alignment and wheel balancing, fixed the non working tail lights and cleaned the interior.

As it turns out, Kevin at Dynamic did'nt have the Cerwins in the size I needed for my doors. My doors are a 5x7, so i tried out a pair of Eclipses, and tbh... I did'nt like them at all. My stock paper speeks sounded better.

5x7 is somewhat of an oddball size speaker as well. Have you looked into those 5x7 speakers where it's a plate which has a seperate tweeter and a round woofer? Not sure of the exact name of them... I had some in Kenwood in basic 5x7 speaker and it had great highs and some mid, but most mid and all low end notes were pretty much not present.
