Default Just bought a Superformance

I just bought a 33xx Superformance with a Roush 427 SR. Very nice car. I didnít get an owners manual. Is there a PDF available?

Is there a reason to join SCOF? The website seems so outdated. The pages are hard to read and navigate. Was it built during the Stone Age? Iím sure thereís a lot of great info, but if the info sucks as bad as the website design, Iíll pass.

Thanks!

No PDF of the manual, you can get a very good manual package here: https://secondstrike.com/SecondStrik...rikeStore.html

The Superformance distributor doesn't supply a manual, it is up to the dealer or customer to purchase one.

Joe Camire installed a new Holley 750 left by the hole from the Webers. Hope they work for you. I was going to install Ingleseís Webers, but I think going with a standard carb will be easier for me over the long run.

Billís build was fun to watch over the past 12 years and Iím happy he trusted me enough to sell it to me so I could finish it up. Itís almost done.

He did an amazing job replicating a 289 FIA with so many custom pieces. Highly modified FFR frame, Bruce Chervenak body and frame mods, fiberglass footboxes, fiberglass trunk floor, 331 stroker, custom suspension, bodywork and paint by Ken Pike. The mechanicals are getting sorted out by Joe. I plan to take it to LCS if itís all done.

The copyrighted manual? The one Mike Stenhouse and others worked to produce?

Have you ever had a copyrighted/trademarked item pirated? Have you ever had parts manufactured from tooling you paid for by a manufacturer who sold the parts out the back door?

I suppose you worked free at whatever it was that you do/did?

We b!tch about China stealing intellectual property, but apparently have no problem doing it domestically because we can.

Welcome CSXBill from 2020 , Great looking Superformance and nice addition to your FFR 289FIA car. Have always been a fan of no stripes. So, the FIA is a one-off of a FFR made into a FIA, Correct? Cheers Tom.

Have I ever bought a new car (including my ERA) where they didn't throw in a free Owner's Manual? Especially if that new car is now approaching or surpassing six figures? Regardless of who wrote it, if you drop a hundred thou on an SPF somebody ought to give you a free manual and not try and stick you for another hundred. Are the margins that tight, and the dealers that much on a shoestring that they can't do that?

When sold new, SPF delivers a digital copy of the owners manual with the car. You can then take it to a print shop, where they can make you a beautiful hard copy, with a digital picture of your car on the first page of the binder.

Well that only seems fair. And if for some reason a subsequent purchaser does not get an Owner's Manual (maybe because the previous owner's widow lost it) then he should get a complimentary copy from the manufacturer. I'm really not sure why Mark IV is not saying "Patrick, you're absolutely right and we provide complimentary copies to SPF owners just as matter of good business."
