The very notion of putting a SHO engine (V6 OR V8) into a non-SHO is ridiculous. There is much more to the SHO than just the engine, and they are so cheap that you'd spend more on the conversion of a SLO to a SHO than to just buy a running SHO in better shape.Originally posted by TaurScort@Jan 21 2004, 07:45 PM
Cam sprockets anyone? "Was a running cutout." Let's see...take the chance that they've already slipped, (the engine would still be running) or if they haven't, pay to have them welded. You'd all have been a lot better off with the 3.2L that was on there (is still on there?) yesterday that was brand new, never even fired up. At least then you stand less of a chance of buying someone else's problem. Why would a sane person take the 3.4L out of their car unless something was wrong. Buyer Beware!
I have to disagree with you there, its not a bad notion at all.The very notion of putting a SHO engine (V6 OR V8) into a non-SHO is ridiculous. There is much more to the SHO than just the engine,[/b]

almost forgot: Sho decals and higher insurance!!!!!!!!!!!!!
now for someone like me, who is young, the insurance would tripple on a sho...no im not joking...almost tripple.
The SHO motor in the Ford Festiva has been done. There are at least 7 of them out there, called SHOguns. Here's a link to one of them. SHOgun #005 And here is Jay Leno's SHOgun. And there is also this one.Originally posted by mikehawk@Jan 22 2004, 10:41 AM
Why not put the SHO motor in a tiny little cheap-a** car? Like a ford festiva, or a soap box racer, or a shopping cart, or anything LIGHTER than a taurus.
There was a 3.4L SHO engine on eBay a while back that was supposed to be used on a fan boat. Apparently, the engines are popular in dune buggies too. The buggies on Fear Factor a couple weeks ago were supposedly SHO-powered (not sure if they were V8 or V6, though.)Originally posted by mikehawk@Jan 22 2004, 04:35 PM
I've seen Jay Leno's before, but has anyone done it with a V8 SHO motor?
