Well, here are the basics of your GenII Vulcan.

3.0 (182 cu. in.) OHV V6 , 2 valves/cylinder
140 [email protected] 4800 RPM
160 ft./lb. @ 3000 RPM

I have memorized all the Vulcan basics :lol: I might drive a SHO, but I'm still a Vulcan lover at heart. :grin2:

If you have any more questions about your car, you can check out the Taurus/Sable spotters guide here: http://198.165.58.61/revo/member/qwerty/BullID/Basic.html

vulcan slowest 86-present (but still a great engine)
??? 3.8 better 86?-95 (lots of torque)
3.2 SHO fast 93-95 (automatic)
3.0 SHO faster 89-95 (5 speed)
--------------------------------------
3.0 vulcan slowest (but still a great engine)
3.0 duratec fast (96-present)
3.4 SHO faster V8 96-99

I believe the 3.8 was called the Essex engine

Are you asking, for example, what Torque means and what it does for your car?
