Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately there aren't really any kits readily available for the MX-6. You can buy the hot pipes pre-made, but you're on your own for intercooler pipes, and you pretty much have to piece your kit together.

a good rule of thumb to go by is "if the mechanic has never worked on a mazda before, dont let him start with yours..."
I learned that the hard way, after 2300.oo and some change, and a completely ruined engine...

I still say do everything your self. I like being able to say this is my car and i built it. You just got to study and get as much info as you can be4 you go out there and get your hands dirty
