I love the SVOs. I have a T-Bird Turbo coupe with 38K original. I would live to add a SVO but they are very rare that are unmolested or flat destroyed. There is one that is running very very quick in the North west. I belove it is around 700rwhp with 4 cyl and 1 turbo still and it is streetable.

IMO SVO's are badass. Theres not too many of them, so if you could get one in nice shape, it would be worth it to keep. And Turbo 2.3's aren't as slow as you think they are.

And it never should!

Muscle car? No
Import? No
Lifted truck? No
Lowered truck? No

When you have a Ford Ranger packing a turbo 4-cylinder, all you can do is park in the back of the car show and realize that you're one-of-a-kind.

My brother has an 85 1/2 SVO. He bought it about 8 years ago from a retired Ford worker. The car had just 10k miles on it and still had new car smell! I don't pretend to know much about the 2.3L turbos, but I'll tell you this car screams. I know he's tuned it, and he used to have a turbo coupe before the SVO. He claims to beat up on 5.0's and 4.6's all the time, although I've never witnessed said beatings. Awesome car though. I'd love to have it.

08' GT 5 spd. Stock, but not for long.
