Product Description

Product Description


The Mazda Miata is one of the most popular sports cars on the road today. In production for more than 20 years, the Miata’s popularity has grown, and the number of aftermarket components available to the Miata enthusiast has grown, too. This immense selection of parts has made it difficult for many would-be modifiers to choose the proper combination that will help them reach the goals they have set for their two-seaters.
Author and Miata expert Keith Tanner has been modifying, repairing, building, and racing Miatas for years, and he will guide you through how to best modify your car to suit your needs, starting with an explanation on how everything works and how the various parts will interact. You'll not only learn what upgrades will help you reach your goals, but also how to adjust or modify what you have to make your car work at its best. From autocross to cross-country touring, the Miata can do it all. Keith Tanner tells you how to make it happen!

Keith Tanner has been working on Miatas for over a decade and works as a technician at Flyin' Miata. He's published two other books in the Motorbooks Workshop series; Mazda Miata MX-5 Performance Projects and How to Build a Cheap Sports Car and has also written numerous articles.

5.0 out of 5 stars review of latest workshop manual. 30 Mar 2011
I bought Keith Tanners first project manual shortly after i purchased a MK1 MK5 from a scrapyard as a restoration project.

The manual has been invaluable, dispite owning 2 others, Keiths has been the one i have used to help me through the various stages of restoration.

He has a very clear description proceedure, couples with excellent pictures and 'tips'. as a result the car will be complete within a few months.

The latest manual will be perfect once the car is 'road legal' as i will wish to develop it further,sensible advise on tuning and what to spend your money on for best effect.

If you enjoy modifying your MX5 than this is definately the book for you..

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 23 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This has been added to my collection of MX-5 books and it's a great read. Lots of interesting info, even if you don't intend to do most of the modifications. If you are looking at buying a modified car this would also help you properly assess the mods. Worth every penny/cent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 20 Aug 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a total car geek, I struggle to find books that are worth reading that aren't full of BS or photos.

This is a fanatic read for any car nut, whether you have an MX5 or not.
