Who makes the best repair manual for an SVT?

I'd like to get a good repair manual for my '04 SVT. It appears the Ford manuals require a supplement that I've never seen. Are the Haynes manuals decent? I've had pretty good luck with them on other cars. Thanks for your input!

The Haynes manual is written mainly for the base model focus. I have one and there are some references to the SVT scattered throughout, but not any real specific sections dedicated to SVT model.

Alldatadiy, how do you like it? Do they have all specs? I thought about doing it, but was unsure.

These are the ones I use, Ford made manuals, the 2003/2004 manuals have the most information for the SVT as the manuals were released before the SVT production in 2002. These manuals have essentially everything you will need for your car. Hope this helps.
