Someone will need to be the first and try to adapt that kit to a duratech taurus...the main problem is always the cramped confines of a taurus engine bay...hmmmmm...

I think this may only work on mtx contours. That's the only limitation that I think I remember hearing about these kits.

that is designed for the 24v 2.5l durateck/svt engines in the svt contours and may fit a cougar. With some mods and a new chip it may be adapted to out engines.

You might also find out what pully is being used to run the SC... I think there's a pully that moved from one side to the other of the engine at one point with the taurus duratec.

Thats for the 2.5L in the Contour. Thats a 60lb ft increase over stock, so with the extra displacement you'll probably get an extra 75lb ft in the 3.0L Duratec.
