Started my '86 SVO build a while back. I bought this car about 2 years ago, after searching for an SVO mustang for almost 4 years, I found one in Shawnee after taking a wrong turn and finding this '86 sitting in a driveway. I bought it almost a year later and thats the long story short. I am the 3rd owner and the car was bought new in MO (lees summit if i remember correctly, or Liberty) it has sat alot, with no body rust, just light surface rust here and there underneath. The car was mostly stock, but had a cone filter, boost control valve, and FPR. Ran okay after doing some maintenance, i drove it off and on, it started smoking, and lost all guts it ever had. After a leak down test cyl. 2 and 3 were dead and leaking 90% past the rings. So the build began. Many thanks goes to shannon for being such a help since I was new to 4cyl turbo fords and I have always a a modular mustang or 5.0 fox.
The build is a follows.
Stinger 3" down and mid going to a dynomax dumped
walbro 255 pump
studded/ strapped main
arp head studs
ranger cam (for now)
home port head
race eng inc round tooth conversion / adj. cam gear
probably missing some stuff, essentially the idea is to just get everything running smooth. the original idea was to reseal the engine and go from there, but I decided just to build around that idea while I was already into the car. Once we get it running and tuned, around tax season I am planning on doing a head and cam from bo and go from there.
