It looks like Ive got my work cut out for me here. I hate when people who have no idea how
To actually make a repair attempt it.

I had an '84 SVO and found it to be a very well put together car for 1984. Hot Rod Garage did a 2.3 Turbo Coupe build utilizing the stock motor and upgraded turbo/header/cam and injectors that made EcoBoost horsepower levels. Personally, I'd go that route and keep it "original"'ish. Pete Kotzur (San Antonio machine shop legend) had one that ran in the 12's back in the mid-90's.

I have had similar thoughts. May even do one stockish build and buy another more stripped out SVO and do the 2.3T. Not decided anything yet.
