    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!

    Wasted my money
    Probably a good book for someone with a Miata pre 2003 (copywrite date) but not much use to an NC owner.

    From Flyin' Miata - we apologize if the writeup wasn't clear. This book covers 1990-05 models only. At this time, there is no equivalent for the NC chassis.

    Quintessential, Essential
    This book, quite simply, is the first item you should buy. Wether your experienced or new to wrenching you need this book as either review or a sage guide. One of my most basic questions, jack points, in covered in the very first section. Clear, concise, informative, humours, with excellent real photos. Other than being flat beoke there is no reason this book is not the first thing you buy.
