I did this myself. Here is what you need.

Front turn signals: 3157.
Headlights: D3S if you have factory HIDs or 9012 if you have factory halogen.
Front sidemarker: 168/194
All interior bulbs: 168/194 - For middle domelight do this:
Reverse lamps: 168/194 or 921.
Rear brake, side marker, and Turn signals are already LED.
Third brake lamp is already LED.
License plate lamps: 36mm Festoon or you can go the led assembly route here https://www.amazon.com/s?k=ford+taur...f=nb_sb_noss_1
Mirror puddle lights are a pain to open up and leak so I recommend these: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=ford+mirr...f=nb_sb_noss_1
The trunk light is a 46mm festoon if I recall.

When changing your front turn signals, I recommend you get forscan and turn bulb outage detection off in the BCM so you do not need load resistors. Here is a tutorial to learn that if you do not know how https://www.taurusclub.com/forum/114...dule-data.html

Lastly, I recommend you get good quality bulbs, or you will be changing them often which negates the purpose of them in the first place. Diode Dynamics, and Morimoto are a couple good brands.

I did try HIDs and the output was better, but because these projectors are designed for halogens from the factory, the HIDs still do not work as best as they should. I ended up getting my headlights retrofitted.

Also because the projectors were not designed for HIDs, you risk burning the reflective material in the projector itself.
