what i am wondering is if the vulcan 3.0 had the same bell housing bolt pattern thoughout all the years it has been used in the taurus/sable's. and if the SHO uses the same bellhousing bolt pattern. I don't hear to much about the newer Taurus/sable's having the same tranny problems as the older models so wouldn't it be easier to switch out the trans for something that will work better? I am just wondering if they bolt up. I know since the electronics are different it might make it impossible/ or very difficult to do a swap like this. any help would be great. thanks.
