I donít think you need a turbo just yet. The Miata is a fine tuned automobile. It will do many things lots of other cars will not. You should spend a couple of years learning how to drive what you have. The addition of a turbo is so drastic that many young drivers canít handle the change.
Just add an approved SCCA roll bar and go have some fun. Donít buy non-approved. Many are for looks alone and will not support the weight of the car in case of rollover.
Here is the SCCA Miata site.
Here is the Kansas Miata Club site.
Here is the Miata racing site. There are races in Topeka and Salina. Go to some races. These guys love to talk about their cars.
Here is a good site for parts and goodies.
Be careful when you start adding performance parts on your Miata. I have watched young guys spend thousands of dollars on special springs, special shocks, special tires, more power. . . etc, and then get beaten by a stock Miata. If you canít drive, you just canít drive.
Join a club. It is only about 25 bucks for the year. Itís fun to go on a road trip with 50 other Miataís. And you will learn from the other owners.
