Heart of the Pony: Ford's All-Time Top Mustang Engines 4
1986 SVO 2.3L Turbo
With 205 horsepower, the turbo 2.3L offered five more ponies than the fuel-injected 5.0L V8. Impressive numbers aside, 1986 would also mark the demise of the turbocharged 4-cylinder Mustangs.
In addition to the fiery four-banger, SVO models included a single headlight design that would become the norm for all Mustangs in 1987, along with an offset hood scoop, unique badging and brushed aluminum wheels.
