2011 Taurus Limited (Silver)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock. Just a new battery. That's about it. Not very mechanically inclined.
--------------
3.5L V6 engine with front wheel drive tied up to a 6 speed transmission with the optional manual Paddle shifters.
3.5-liter V6
263 horsepower @ 6250 rpm
249 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/28 FWD (Edit: I've found I can eek out 19-20 MPG in town with careful driving)
Interior
First change/upgrade is adding a subwoofer to the trunk to extend the bottom end range of the stereo. Since I am not going to change the factory h/u I created my own harness to pull factory signal off the factory amp in the trunk.
TBD: are some speaker upgrades for the front door speakers and the tweeters in the A-Pillar.
Exterior
Added a tow hitch receiver and wired the relay for the 'trailer' lights myself. this included a run of 4AWG power wire from the battery to the trunk to a distribution block for +/- connections.
Audio
Factory 7 channel system. I have added a Dock for my phone (Note 5) that plays quite nicely with the factory USB input and Bluetooth. It's great for watching Netflix on my lunch break or finding that song you just gotta hear on YouTube. It has the Sirius Radio option but now I have my phone synced; it sounds ridiculous to keep paying for such a high priced subscription when I can stream music for free. Thanx T-Mobile!
Suspension
Stock
Wheel and Tire
Stock-- but this is a future purchase as the rims are not in very good shape. Previous owner did not avoid curbs very well.
