Also the svo i actually owned and did drive for many years was not slow by any means it put a lot of big blocks down. With 29 lbs of boost it probably lay waste to your current car. I know a few guys with xr's well built they are crazy fast and stock brand new they were also pretty quick. Hard to think you even rode in one before. Most turbo cars will spinn the tires easily with a little slip of the clutch to raise the boost up first.

Svo is 205 hp and 248lbs tq not bad considering the vette Was only 90hp north of that in 86.
What the hell does this post this mean?

Drive one, they have not been at the dealer in over 20 years
slipping the clutch? you think i cant drive stick?
Tires barely squeal slipping first, but in 4 th gear locked up WATCH out.
29 lbs of boost, whatever. Go read comic books son.
Civics can make 200hp NA
Apply the same boost and mods to a new honda as a 1988 2.3L mustang
How many sv mustangs sold in 88? How many GTs?

Dodge had a shelby line GL turbo vehicles too. They were junk. Even with the MP super 60 add ons.

A 2.3L would be nice in model A. Keep it simple and reliable.

The 2.3L was the same 4 cylinder in the tempo/ topaz.
