The Crittenden Automotive Library @ CarsAndRacingStuff.com

The Crittenden Automotive Library is Automotive History Beyond the FendersSM: a large collection of information relating to not only cars, trucks, and motorcycles, but also the roads they drive on, the races they compete in, cultural works based on them, government regulation of them, and the people who design, build, and drive them.  We are dedicated to the preservation and free distribution of information relating to all types of cars and road-going vehicles for those seeking the greater understanding of these very important elements of modern society, how automobiles have affected how people live around the world, or for the general study of automotive history and anthropology.  In addition to the historical knowledge, we preserve current events for future generations.

If power is what you are looking for in your new Ford the first place you want to start modifying is the Mustang exhaust.  Open up your exhaust with a set of headers and a catback to get more horsepower.
