Not what I had expected!!
After reading the reviews on Amazon and other sources I got the impression that Mr. Probst's book was "THE BOOK" to read for modification of the EEC-IV system on my Ford Truck.
I was very disappointed. 95% of the book was nothing more than a SIMPLIFIED discription of each component in the Ford and Mazda engine control system. Mr. Probst very strongly implied that people should not modify their engine control system.
I found Mr. Jeff Hartman's book "Fuel Injection: Installation, Performance Tuning, Modification" much more informative for technical information.

Hats off to Mr Probst !!!
This book is topps! Mr Probst uses a friendly, easy to read format. I am now plagued with two problems on my truck, and thanks to this book, I understand quite a bit more. I am a do it yourselfer, self taught, and this book brings things to light. This has given me the tecnical data I need, as where other books are unclear or leave you hanging. This is not a book by any means, it's an investment.
Raise my rent, put another shrimp on the barbie mate, and thank God for simplicity!!

Good technical info
This book is an excellent source of info on Ford engine control. I recommend this book for anyone who works of Ford vehicles. The only section of the book that disappointed me was the performance modification section. The chapter explains why you should or should not install certain mods. It basically tells you to put in a turbo or supercharger. It does not give any technical info or instructions to performance modify your engine. More modification info can be found in any car enthusiast magazine at your local newstand. Otherwise this book is excellent. I recommend they change the subtitle to "How to Understand and Service," not modify, your EFI engine.
