well ithe ones I got from the librar are like the chilton repair manuals n are very descriptive
the ones at barnes n noble n halfprice books are the history of the stangs but still have a lot of good info
and I even found a few at barnes n noble on restoring mustangs which is pretty interesting
so it just depends wht ur looking for

Re: need some knowledge

What exactly about under the hood are you looking to learn?

I bought a small block ford engine builder book to learn how to assemble an engine. (this one Amazon.com: How to Rebuild the Small Block Ford-Color Edition (SA Design) (9781932494891): George Reid: Books )

I also have this one for general how to for everything on the car Amazon.com: Ford Mustang and Mercury Capri, 1979-1993 (Haynes Manuals) (9781563921308): John Haynes: Books and this one as well Amazon.com: Ford: Mustang 1989-93 (Chilton's Total Car Care Repair Manual) (9780801988158): The Nichols/Chilton Editors: Books

I was recommended this one by someone as well Amazon.com: The Official Ford Mustang 5.0: Technical Reference & Performance Handbook : 1979 Through 1993 (9780837602103): Al Kirschenbaum: Books

and this one Amazon.com: Mustang Performance Handbook : Engine and Drivetrain Modifications for Street, Drag Strip or Road Racing Use. Covers All Models of the Ford Mustang, 1979 to present. (0075478011933): William R. Mathis: Books


Oh yeah, and if you can find one...this is a great book for suspension on the foxes...but it's out of print I believe now. Amazon.com: Mustang Performance Handbook 2 (9781557882028): William R. Mathis: Books
