Targa Miata
April 19, 2011 - In order to fit the engine in the Miata's small engine bay, you have to use just the right accessory drive.
GM is thoughtful enough to make several options available as kits, including clear instructions on how to mount it along with well sorted and labeled fasteners. It's a pleasure to work with parts like this.
Of course, there was one little problem. The engine has a non-standard damper with a smaller diameter crank pulley. So the included serpentine belt is too long. This is the sort of thing I ran in to all day, and that's what will keep the car from running at the Mitty.
