I may be way off base here but I thought allSVO's had the turbo, if it doesn't have one than it isn't an SVO, its just a 4 cylender Mustang. The addition of the turbo, some suspension and interior upgrades and the dual wing are distinctive to the SVO. Nice cars

It's a motor swap from like an 85 I think he just didn't have the manifold. At least that's what the guy said
