The 1986 Mustangs saw increased power from the '85 addition of new cylinder heads, a revised carburetor, a more aggressive roller camshaft, higher flowing exhaust manifolds, and a dual exhaust. All these modifications helped bring the power up to 210 horsepower, which many people felt was on the conservative side. It was the last carbureted V-8 that Ford would place in the 'Stang. Power for the SVO's turbocharged four cylinder went up as well in 1985, to 205 horsepower. The SVO era ended in 1986, mostly because the 5.0L offered similar performance in at a lower price.
