Other way around; old SHO'* (1989-1995) had 3.0 V6'*, and they also came with 3.2 V6'*, by Yamaha. The newest generation SHO'* (1996-1999) had a 3.4 V8 with problems up the ***.

They aren't that heavy, they make 235hp. Not bad, too bad the newer ones are only offered in automatic.

Yes, the M90.

But it was not centrifugal.
"Topping the performance scale was the Yamaha-designed, dual-overhead-cam, 3.0-liter V6 that whipped out 220 horsepower, installed only in the SHO sedan. Only the SHO came with 5-speed manual shift...A high-performance 3.2-liter V6 went into 1993 SHO sedans with automatic--the same horsepower rating as the 3.0 V6 with manual shift, but 215 pounds-feet of torque. "


I don't see anything here about a super charger. I thought the SHO has always been NA.

What are you talking about that the supercharger on 1989-1992 SHO was not centrifugal???

There is a shaft that is attatched to the supercharger, which drives the turbine. The supecharger is on the opposite side of the engine in respect to the belts. The belt is attatched to this shaft that drives the supercharger, which is centrifugal. Look up the SHO engine on the net and you will see.

Maybe the SHO club websites should take a look at ours and take a few pointers as to technical articles and such, because it is rediculous that i can not find anything anywhere about this thing. All i have found is pictures, and you can see the supercharger. The pages i have found, when you click on them it says 404 not found..
I love it! :o :P :P :P

Yes the newer SHO'* were V8'*, but they have major problems in regards to cam failure and short circuiting in the main computer and ignition wires.

I've been looking around on Cardomain for a while, the only SHO I can find with a blower on it was an M90 from a SuperCoupe.
