      When you were on the subject of the Mustang SVO, I remember the 86 model having 205 hp. That was the last year for the SVO and the first year for the fuel injected 5.0 that dropped for 210 in 85 with a Holley 4 barrel to 200 for 86 with FI. In 87 the 5.0 jumped to 225 and the SVO went away and the hardware went to the T-Bird Turbo coupe with less hp. Wikipedia says the 85.5 SVO had 205 hp and the 86 dropped to 200. Not the way I remember it because it was big deal that the 4 cylinder SVO had more hp than the V8 in 86. As early in 84 SVO's also had 4 wheel disc brakes that V8's didn't get till the 93 Cobra and 16" wheels that V8's didn't get till 91. Love the Pod Cast every week.
