Yeah, but I'd take 5-speed SHO any day of the week. Manual, plus the engine isn't even built by Ford.

No they're similar sized N/A engines, don't compare a blown one.

What kind of compression does the SHO motor have? Other engine specs? SOHC/DOHC/OHV? A lot of liitle crap contributes to what kind of power an engine makes besides displacement.

Those two also have a simliar output too, so that'* why I consider it.

I believe it'* a DOHC Yamaha Motor.

Na I like the SHO'* ive even thought about buyin one. The reason I said i hate ford'* anyway was because I was wrong in sayin them came with a 302 in the 80'*.

Ford made me look stupid

That link in the original post has got alot of info about the SHO'*, there is where you'll find specifications and stuff.

Doesn't it all come down to what pulls up next to you on the track?

The older SHO'* are pretty quick with the manual. They have a lot of freeway power. The newer gen SHO'* weren't as potent.

I have a friend at work (several actually, but this is just one of them) who owned a hopped-up Pre-Gen (the faster one...he'* the guy I borrowed the old G-Tech from, before I bought my Pro) SHO. He'* driven the 'Zilla, and gives the nod to the SSEi hands down. No comparison whatsoever.

I would assume a good hopped-up L36, particularly the lighter 95 would really give an SHO a run for the money, particularly in stock form.

A buddy of mine has a 97 sho. it has around 200 hp and its no comparison to the bonnie. SHOs are nice and i like them but i probly wouldnt get one just because of the cost of maintaining one of those things, you have to take off the whole upper end of the motor to get to the spark plugs, and on top of that, the cams like to go out in some of them.
