Miata Performance Projects

A good addition to anyone`s toolbox, Performance Projects walks through the most common jobs on a Miata. The book covers 41 projects for all levels of mechanic, from novice to experienced. Each project is clearly explained with large color photos to make it easy to understand. You`ll also find out how difficult your particular project is, what parts you`ll need, how much it`s liable to cost and what else you should do while you`re in there. Written by Flyin` Miata`s own Keith Tanner.

There are a few sample pages available so you can get an idea of what the book is like. Click on the project names in the list below to see them.

For 1990-05 Miatas. The 2004-05 Mazdaspeed turbo car is not specifically covered, but most of the projects still apply. As with all of Keith`s books, it`s autographed by the author - a Flyin` Miata exclusive!
