Community Q&A Question: Air Pump and EGR

Asking About: Mustang SVE 170cc Performance Aluminum Cylinder Heads - 61cc Chamber (79-95) 5.0/5.8


Air Pump and EGR

I have a 1988 5.0. Are these heads designed to accept the factory emissions (air injection and EGR)?

Will there ever be SVE heads coming out in the future that do have provisions for EGR and air pump? If not, what additional work is necessary/required to successfully run without CEL's or problems? - Brandon 4 years ago

It would take some pretty complicated machine work to bore passages in the heads for egr and air pump provisions. That machine work would likely exceed the cost of upgrading to heads that already have smog provisions. We offer many other popular aluminum cylinder heads for your 5.0 that have smog passages. At this time, we don't have plans for SVE heads with smog provisions. On a fox body, removing the smog pump and its plumbing (although not legal for road use) will not typically turn on the check engine light.
