Format: Paperback
I have both this and the drivetrain book by Mathis. This is the most detailed information you will get from a general automotive upgrade book. I highly recommend these for anyone interested in modifying their Mustang. Includes diagrams for manufacturing your own parts, as well as an extensive list of parts mfrs.

I think Mr. Mathis desrves his own show on TNN. Without a whole-lot of tact, Mathis shares his opinions on which year models to avoid and how truly expensive many mods really are. This book is "no-bull".

Format: Paperback
This book is the numeral uno source for making your mustang scream. It has ALL the answers and I couldn't have done any thing to my Ford without it! No matter your experience level in the hot rod field, the material in this hanbook is for all levels. I was clueless, couldn't tell you the difference between a strut and roller rocker. Now I have a daily driver that runs low 11's and pulls 1.02 lateral g's in a turn; and I did everyhting! I bought a copy for all of the guys in my stang club, and they now have the knowledge they needed and so wanted to have.

This book has a lot of good basic information that is helpful when planning modifications. All topics are covered from stock equipment to suspension basics, to full blown aftermarket hop ups. All in all, this book with provide you with tons of information concerning minor mods and bolt-ons. It also has blueprints for an oil pan, baffles, etc.

This book appears to be a 30 year summation of experience from a veteran Ford hot-rodder. Mr. Mathis gives excellent advice on choosing the appropriate parts for a particular combo and it's all derived from hard core experience on the track and the dyno. His down-to-earth approach and plain english really cuts to the chase, this books subject matter is as correct as it gets yet very easy to understand and apply. He also pays attention to the fact that not everyone is made of money and doesn't cater exclusively to the ultra-expensive setups and parts. If you are even THINKING of upgrading your 79-93 Stang then buy this book, you won't be disapointed!

Format: Paperback
The information and detail covered in this book is the best I've ever seen. Mr. Mathis keeps the information as simple as possible by keeping the text easy to read and understand. The text is very lightnote and often times humorous to those of us who have been in situations he mentions. He covers it all from A to Z. Making very good recommendations for manufacturers and including the order number for the parts. A true "Must Have" for any Stang or Ford owner.

Format: Paperback
The reason this book is not five stars is that I'm building my car for street use and the author tends to focus on motorsports. So while some subjective remarks like "the stock rollers are garbage" may be very true in a road racing application they may not be true for a high performance street application. Regardless there are still some real gems and if you follow the recomendationas you will build a bulletproof, if not cheap, powertrain.

Shows you lots of illustrated information & recommendations for upgrading your 90's Mustang 5.0, includes excellent how-to-install pages, useful blue prints for machining, and lots of different aftermarket 5.0 parts manufaturers with their part numbers. This book is a must for 5.0 performance modification projects.
