I say S-H-O.

Just like it's 4-4-2 and not "four forty two" like people with death wishes say.

S.H.O.

It's an acronym, not a word. :thumb:
Same as me

So what? RADAR is an acronym for RAdio Detection And Ranging but we don't pronounce it R-A-D-A-R.
Everyone I know says Map Sensor and Maf Sensor, not M-A-P and M-A-F.
So who cares if someone says SHOw or S-H-O? I say it differently all the time.

This definitely needed bumped :clap2:

Considering some Ford techs still believe this is the A.) supercharged car, or B.) the "five-oh" car, I wouldn't put much stock in their verbage...

I always say SHOw because either way I have to explain what it is. And because of that I prefer the one syllable over three. My bigger dispute is over the proper pronounciation of plural Taurus. Taurus the word itself come from latin and to make it plural you remove the US and add an I thus Tauri and is properly converted to a plural form. Two Is is improper unless you don't have good grammar. Like (an) only goes infont of vowels and Hs not consonants like Ss thats what (a) is for . Cause Tauruses just doesn't sound right. Kinda like Geeses....or masks.(but you can't avoid the awkwardness of masks.) et tu brutus?
