Default Taurus SHO

Hang on there guys, I'm not advocating a ford, (for some reason most on here don't to the blue oval), I only like older T-birds and Grand Torinos. But how would a stock SSEi do against a stock SHO of the same year?

Auto SHO'* are not very quick, about 7.5 secs, and the Manuals are about 6.9- 7.0 secs. The '89 was light and had a 6.6 0-60. I know this cause I asked my uncle.

The auto SHO I drove was very quick. I think it would be closer than you would think plus the fact the the SHOs only pushing like 220 hp with a 3.2 litre engine.

If you are talking about the V8 show with the SMALL 3.4 V8 pushing 230hp I think it would be even closer.

Yamaha makes expensive but very advanced small engines ............check out the new one they make for the Volvo XC90

O You are talking about the V8 SHOs? If so, then they are sluggish for a small V8, I have a Motor trend here and the 0-60 on them was 7.9 and the 1/4 was 15.9

I would not call those cars dogs. Those numbers are the same as many bonnevilles and not that bad imho.
