The 1985 Fox Body received a face-lift with the new front facia design ending the more traditional “grill” design of the previous year. Horsepower for the 5.0 jumped from 175HP to 210HP due in part to the exhaust system changes. This is the last year of the four-barrel carburetor. 1985 introduced the use of forged pistons with thicker ring lands for improved heat transfer. And not to forget, 1985 gave us the first year of the OE roller rockers in the 5.0HO. You can learn more about the progression of the Fox Body V8 here.
