    I have that book, and you're right, it is nice, but honestly I think he's way beyond anything that he can learn from that book at this point. He's already got a built motor and hoping for 400+ wheel horses. That particular book just covers the swap basics, like what mounts to use, how to keep A/C, that kind of thing. I'm thinking he's probably looking for wiring diagrams and that kind of stuff...

    In that case, he'd probably want to go with a Helms/factory service manual. The Haynes might be sufficient too. I know they've got torque specs and some wiring diagrams in the back.

    Definitely check out the website posted above...you don't want to pay $50 or more for a factory manual when you can download it online for free...
