The Third Edition of Superformance Mk III Owners Manual is a true "Owners" Owner's Manual. It has been created by and for Mk III enthusiasts who working together build, sell, service, own, and drive these magnificent machines.

Superformance provides the rolling chassis that is the core of these machines. The owners add their own engine, transmission, options, and customizations to create their own personal machines tailored to their individual vision. In order to be of greater use to you the owner, this manual is for the completed car and as such contains information, suggestions, and recommendations far beyond the equipment provided by Superformance.

The Editorial Committee for this manual includes some of the most experienced and knowledgeable members of the Superformance family and represents over 100 years and 200,000 miles of on-the-road ownership experience.

Just received my manual today. You did a great job on it. If any of you have not ordered one yet, order one !! It makes the original one useless. A great reference for anything you need to know about you car.
Mel Kwong SP 789

I got mine Friday. Wow. This goes light years beyond the little manual that came with my car. Really comprehensive. Thanks to Mike Stenhouse and all of the folks listed in the credits for their efforts in producing this terrific manual.
Steve Payne SP 1061

Thank you for the great effort and success. The manual is a major accomplishment and will benefit all that choose to have it. This is the document that owners have been waiting for and is the definitive manual for all to enjoy. For those of you that are looking for "The Book" on Superformance Mk III?s, step up to the plate and get your copy.
Jim Vander Wal 1855

For those wondering about Mike's new owners manual, it is one of the best I've seen. And I have seen lots of them, and even created a few myself. The attention to detail will amaze you. The intricate wiring diagrams in the back will certainly help you trace those gremlins. The detail in front will aid any new owner in understanding everything about these cars, even to the point of how to wash them and wax them. It is so difficult to describe just how awesome the manual is. I shift you not my friends.
Randall Thomas SP 455 and 1002.

I received the manual and I couldn?t be happier with it. The manual already came in handy twice.
Rodney Mollura SP 1701.

Sven Neubert SP 2370

Your efforts in creating the new Mk III manual will be a fantastic aid to all the current and the future owners of these vehicles, and will add to the total ownership enjoyment experience. But most importantly, the level of safety of all the current and future Mk III owners will be greatly enhanced with this new manual in place.
