I found a fun link full of 2008 specifications. Plus a theoretical top speed estimate of 152 mph!
Taurus Specs

I'll let you know how close I can get to this in a few years. Technical top speed limit for the 115 mph class is 140 at Big Bend and I think that I can meet the safety requirements for that class.

This is showing the 0-140 time as under one minute! Same or better quarter than later 6th Generation because it is 250 pounds lighter. With KYB struts, Michelin Pilot Sport Tires, ceramic brakes, cryo rotors and a built 6F50, it will be quite a sedan! What a sleeper!

My 2008 is a dog. Makes a lot of noise but doesn't go anywhere.:( Pretty sure my big heavy 2011 Edge would give my Taurus a whoopin.

If it is transmission, I have a perfect 90000 mile 6F50 that will only get me a core value of $530 ($700 - $170 shipping) you can have. I am in the Dallas area. I am replacing it with a built 6F50. My Taurus still gets 28-30 mpg highway and shifting is smooth as silk. I just don't want to put any track miles on a stock transmission.

Hey there, Im intrigued with all your 2008 Taurus posts, sorry you never got more interaction from anyone. I've been a Gen 5 owner since the first once came to town. I've had 6 since, my latest one is starting to give me issues, and my money having days are behind me, so dealership assistance is out of the question (though they probley don't know a damn thing to begin with). Anyway, Do you have any pics of it? I was lookin forward to pics after reading about it, but alas there were none. Would you mind if I picked your experience knowledge?
