Well its been almost a year and I am still in love with my 08 taurus...I was pretty depressed they werent coming out with aftermarket parts for it. However knowing that the new SHO has the same drivetrain with beefed up parts and that it is recieving tons of aftermarket support already I have regained my excitement. I am far from a rebuild on the drivetrain but when it does happen. I am thinking of a few upgrades so tell me what you all think.

SHO 6f55 Rebuild kit (stronger internals and seals than the 6f50 that I have...professionally rebuilt by a performance transmission specialist)

Either SHO or F150 EcoBoost rebuild kit and internals(buying the complete ecoboost engine from a wrecked car or truck may be cheaper.

Hennessey Performance Kit MaxBoost 445 Mail Order Upgrade | 2010-2011 Taurus SHO Ecoboost | Hennessey Performance

Emergency Lights

I will likely add to the list but these are the most expensive and extensive upgrades I would like to do.

Wow dude this is neat. I love SHO swaps, I'm doing one myself and I know someone who did as well. Just never this year.

I'd love to see it when you're done. Good luck!!

Im tryin to price everything. Unfortunately they dont sell the 3.5 ecoboost engine as a crate engine yet as far as I know. Im trying to source a company for new ecoboost internals first. I will post it here when it gets under way but depending on the cost it might not be possible any time soon. Im also having trouble finding cross drilled and slotted performance brakes for an 08 taurus lol

Yeah the good part about the older engine swaps is you can buy the whole car sometimes for less then the engine cost and just swap them. The 2010 is still in the way too pricey range for that.

I wonder if anyone anywhere has one they pulled yet though.

There are parts from the Gen 6 Taurus listed on eBay by LKQ all the time. I would check there for the powertrain or other components from a 2010+ SHO.
