    Question for the 2.3 turbo Mustang fans here. The SVO, as well as certain Thunderbirds, and XR4ti's had a taller block version of the 2.3 and overall better build for performance. Anyone know the exact versions/models that had this particular motor compared to the standard ford 2.3?

    I've heard of the tall block, but I was under the impression that all of the factory offerings in those cars were standard 2.3l blocks.

    None. The tall block was a Motorsport-only part, and if you can find one nowadays it will run you in excess of $4000.
