2 Vulcans, a Duratec, and a 3.4 Yamaha SHO. 1 Vulcan went to the junkyard.

They each have their redeeming qualities :)

I mean, I just want that motor so it can sit in my garage and look beautiful. It's just so pretty.

Josh, you should clean up your SHO motor to look like that! :rolleyes:

Vulcan.

Essex.

And....



3.2L SHO B)
^ sex.


As for my motor, well...its obvious. Though I've honestly thought about the volvo motor as possible try. Just a little daydream, not too much thought.

I swear someone here around thanksgiving time had a Gold (?) Taurus that he said he threw a mustang motor in. It had the black cobalt fin and a dual chrome tipped exhaust. All I remember. Anyone know what happened to him?

4.6 wad made longer wonder why more people haven't owned a car with that motor. guess a lot of people like to own V6's better fuel economy i guess lol
There's a ford modular block that will bolt up to the AXOD transmission, that's what you call a "transmission murdering" combination though. It barely fits in the engine bay as well. You would likely need a computer swap from a Lincoln to make it work, along with the transmission. The best way to get a V8 in a Taurus is to find a 3rd gen SHO. Converting to RWD would be next option.

I don't think transmission murdering is even the way to say it. Just throw the AX4N from the Lincoln in there too.... I remember reading a thread somewhere about a guy who did it, but it died off and we never saw the results. Did see pics of the motor in the car though.

I have a 96 Sho 3.4L and I am in the process of doing the above mentioned swap just got the 4.6L out of a conti with the entire front carriage assembly. I will be making a project form thread as I get more parts. And yes guys it will fit.
