99 Taurus Engine replacement

ive been replying to comments on my intro post, and realize that that isnt the appropriate forum, so im moving to here..
Forgive my seeming blatant arrogance about taurus'.. im brainstorming and bouncing my harebrained ideas off of you guys. haha
ive got a big imagination and once i set my mind to something ill do WHATEVER it takes to make that happen.
that being said...
ive been talking to people on my intro post about mounting possibilities and different engine applications.. is there a marketed engine management system for running two engines in tandem?? im googling and wikipedia-ing my heart out, and figured id ask you guys!
i want to make a truly unique sleeper/show car out of my taurus, and dont care how long it takes.

You have a fourteen year old Ford Taurus.

Really, that should say it all, but...I guess if you had $xxx,xxx and nothing better to do, you could figure something out.

yea, precisely. i bought a cheap car that is in good condition, that i can do lots of modifying and fabricating on.
money..ill have to save up accordingly, so that makes this a project car and not a fixer.
but i really do want to make something completely out of the norm, and wild! something as unique as i am. haha

a couple of years ago i was looking into starting a 'custom fabrication on classic cars' business with a couple of buddies but lets just say they werent too financially responsible.... and so now im trying my hand on my personal car! im looking forward to a fun and interesting learning experience with it.

With the right amount of money, knowledge and the right people you can do anything. It mostly comes down to the money though. It's all what you really want to do to it.

well, of course, there is what i fantasize about and then there is reality... like, i would LOVE to put a W12 Phaeton rear mounted buutttt realistically.. thats just not guna happen..
the Honda J35 mounted transverse with the auto tranny that goes with it is starting to sound preettyyy good.

You might want to consider thinking of the Taurus more as a daily driver than as a blank canvas. There are other platforms that afford greater flexibility. Most of them are RWD. A Vic or Grand Marquis would be an excellent sleeper candidate

It's SHO time!
