One dollar? Honestly? Wow.
However.... My dad's old SHO..... Was much fun to ride in.
Yeah, her stepdaughter bought it & then she went rabid, trashed her old room & stole a bunch stuff, AFTER she begged
my sister to get custody of her from her own dad (real POS). So the local impound calls my sister & asked what to do
w/ HER Taurus. Seems the kid forgot she had it titled in my sister's name for insurance purposes & didn't trust her own
Aint Karma a bitch.
Most Tauruses & sables come w/ a base 3.0 that's just about right for them. The 3.8 is a bitch to work on because they
fit a little tight & almost any engine work is just easier to do if you pull the whole drivetrain (not as hard as it sounds) &
do it on the floor. However if you get creative, Mustang V6s (mid '90s to '04) are the same 3.8 & there's plenty of parts.
Supercharged Ford Taur'Stang SHO, FTW.
The SHO 3.6 uses heads designed by Yamaha Racing & they're little beasts. There was also a DOHC 3.0 but I think
Ford quit using them because of cam bearing issues, they were more interested in reliability.
My Mom's '00 Sable has the Vulcan V6 (SOHC, 150hp), not the Duratec (DOHC, 200hp)
Much more reliable.
