Well if you want to read and learn then your best first step is to get a copy of the Falcon Performance Handbook for the 144/170/200/250
sixes. For the few dollars it costs it is a great bargain and will get you up to speed on all the good stuff you will want to know. It is full of solid and useful information. No fluff or claptrap.
