About “Kirby”

In 1985, the Mustang GT got the exclusive 5.0 L H.O., with new E5 cylinder heads, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, a new, more aggressive roller camshaft, a new intake manifold, less restrictive exhaust manifolds, and a pseudo dual exhaust, bringing power to a conservatively rated 210 horsepower. This combination was short lived however, because in 1986, Ford released the first fuel-injected 5.0 L. With the high swirl E6 heads, the early 5.0 H.O. EFI intake, higher compression, and dual exhaust, it made for a motor with an abundance of throttle response and low rpm torque, and a very broad powerband that signed off suddenly, at just 5000 rpm.
