I am removing the catalytic converter and putting on one and threequarter exhaust pipe. I will also use a flowmaster muffler. Is there anything else I can do to eek out any more horsepower, beside building a special intake manifold. I hope this car will be somewhat like the old 91 dual overhead cam mazda protege, I used to have. I will be painting the car back to its original white. I am also installing later model subie seats and wheels.

If your replacing all the bearings, seals, etc I would use a good synthetic oil.

Boreing it is a bad idea - the cast-in cylinder liners can spin in the case if it's not properly bored and most machine shops do not have a bore plate for these.
Take .020" off the heads, and some off the block - that will also increase compression.
Accell coils are junk - use the stock coil or one of the non-mexico MSD's etc.
2WD distributors don't have any benefits. The advance curve is the same. And the module's are more expensive and they suffer from more rapid bushing wear.
You should do the SPFI conversion instead of a Weber. Use MegaSquirt for the control system and you can likely push about 120 to 125 HP.
