The two biggest things I did to improve performance was a brake upgrade (Mazdaspeed slotted rotors 320mm) and sway bars, (27mm front - 23mm rear). I've done springs and chassis bars (F+R) but the first two were by far the best improvements. The car attacks corners and makes my poor tires scream like uprooted baby mandrakes.


If you have old suspension I would start with a refresh of of all the control arms (possibly motor mounts too). You'll be amazed the car can feel like it does afterward.
