If you’ve ever wondered what all the gadgets on the top of the Ecto-1 actually do, prepare to take a geeky dive into the mechanics of the Ghostbusters’ ride. Oh, and we also have a breakdown of the proton packs, too.

We have some exclusive pages from Insight Editions’ upcoming Ghostbusters: Ectomobile: Owner’s Workshop Manual, which includes a ton of detailed cutaways and specs from the Ecto-1, as well as more than 20 ghost-busting gadgets. We get to see the various models of the Ecto-1 (including Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II and the 2016 reboot), plus PKE meters, proton packs, ghost traps and proton packs.

Dating back to the 1984 original, the Ghostbusters universe has been responsible for some of the coolest-looking tech in sci-fi lore. They nailed the homemade, but high-tech, angle perfectly — and that’s all reflected here in gloriously minute detail.

The 144-page collection is set to hit shelves in October with a MSRP of $29.99.
