Why not a SVO?

With Ford making limited "mid trims" that go between the GT and Cobra why not make an SVO now that we have a 2.3T again?

  • 350HP 2.3T from the Focus RS - A tuned 2.7T v6 could be used to make closer power to the GT like the original SVO, but the 2.3T feels like it should be the engine used.
  • 3.73 rear
  • GT or GT350 brakes
  • Ford Racing suspension
  • Short shifter
  • 9in wide all around(like the GT)

Would make a fun car IMO. Give it a price just under that of a moderate spec GT.

Current: 2014 Altima 2.5 S w/ Sport Package
2003 Mach1 - Black, 5spd, IUP - totaled with only 36,081 miles on the clock.
2000 Escort ZX2 S/R - Sold
2001 Escort ZX2 - traded in after 2nd tranny failure in under 3 years
1991 Taurus GL (first car) - Traded in after accident

Cool Already a svo

Hi,
My ecoboost is already handling like a svo. Stock it has all the suspension, sway bars and big brakes as the GT mustang. With a programmer it will pump up the HP to 340 and torque to 380. Seeing as it is 230 lbs less weight than a GT it will be a surprisingly quick ride for 8 grand less than a GT. It has the 6 speed auto with paddle shifters, very quick shifts in sport mode and track apps so they are fun to play with also.
Perry.

Weight

Hi,
I was looking at the GT test in the latest car mag, it lists the perf pack GT at 3,815 lbs., that makes my ecoboost 335 lbs less weight( 3480 lbs on government certified scale)
