I keep seeing "fuel injected" in some of the articles I'm reading and want to know if that year was in fact fuel injected?
I'm thinking of buying a 1985 Ford Mustang and have done some research but I'm confused on whether or not that year was fuel injected. I've seen some 1985 Mustangs on ebay and in some of the pictures the engine appears to be carburated but with the letters E.F.I on the air cleaner cover, Or is that a throttle body injection system? Can you answer this mystery for me???? Thanks!
The 5.0-liter engine in the Mustang GT didn't get fuel injected until 1986, TD - the '85 version had a Holley 4-barrel carb. The smaller engines in the '85 had a throttle-body fuel injection system, but not the 5.0. And for what it's worth, I believe E.F.I. stands for "electronic fuel injection," TD. Hope that helps!
Dear TerroristDestroyer -- Depending on the engine, the 1985 Ford Mustang cam with different fuel systems- carbureted, central fuel injected (CFI), electronic multi-point fuel injection (EFI)or sequential fuel injection (SEFI). I can see why you might be confused. Good luck from Bovan.
true 85 gt's are carberated 85 1/2 are throttle body injected up to 86 1/2 then from 86 1/2 to 93 are 5.0 injected from 94 to current 4.6 gt only
Wheeler dealer needs to hit the books and do his homework, he is sucking wind. I have an '85 Gt cental fuel injected 5.0 H.O. sitting in my drive way. Auto's were C.F.I. T5's were 4bbl.
I have a 1984 1/2 with CFI and it has an AOD and a 5.0 and it is a GT
all factory built
My dad put a V8 in a 1986 and it is running strong. p.s it came with an inline 6.
Yes I owned an 85 GT with fuel injection and auto transmission. It had 211 miles put on it from factory testing. (that note came with the sticker). The transmission had to be replaced at one point because of a factory flaw and it threw a piston that was under sized and corrected. Off the line it was a little slower than the Carbureted version but at a 40 punch it would out run the carbureted version and the 86 fuel injected version.
