It can, but you can probably just buy an SHO for about the same amount of money and save yourself the trouble

Yes it has been done. In reality seems kind of pointless since you can buy a sho (especially gen 1) for less then the conversion would cost.

oh i get it... you want a wagon sho.... yeah it can be done it has been done but will be pricey.

Yes, it can be done and has been done and NO IT DOESN"T HAVE TO COST A LOT OF DOUGH!

I was considering the same thing. I found two SHOs in the local wrench and pull. You can pick up the entire drive train for $300! One even has a rebuilt transaxle. The computers and wiring harnesses are there, too. Then I decided it was too common and too much trouble.

I have decide to build up my 3.8 liter V6 with some Morana parts and hopefully a SC setup from an S/C 'Bird. I stripped off both bumpers and the side aero panels, repainted them to match my 91 LX. I stumbled across a lighted spoiler for $15.00, too. I'm just finishing up with that project right now. I only have to paint the front bumper. I even got the SHO hood pad, bucket seats and console and the larger MM F&R swaybars. Since my LX has the same power seats, the SHO buckets are a plug-n-play. I purchased a perfect condition condition, matched set of Italin SHO Slicer wheels in white. The white will look nice against the Twilight Blue. The car will be lowered and a true duals installed.

Well, that's my approach to a tuner Taurus.

Absolutely, and the cost doesn't have to be high. You'll need an SHO with no front end damage, as the subframe has to be swapped. So far as conversions go, this really isn't a bad one.
