Community Q&A Question: '86 GT

Asking About: Mustang SVE 5.0L Top End Engine Kit (87-93)


'86 GT

So I realize that the '86 GT came with different heads than the '87+ installed, but is there any other reason why this kit wouldn't work with my '86?

Will, the 86 GT Mustang came with flat top pistons with no valve reliefs on the pistons at all. What that means is that your engine has so little of valve to piston clearance that you are not allowed to run any bigger cams. You would have to install aftermarket pistons to install this SVE top end kit.
