90 taurus gl wagon...

Hey all my mom recently gave me her 90 taurus gl wagon... its only got 50k original miles on it. But its only got the 3.0 and its obviously an automatic.... to slow.... so a friend of mine ( who is an AMAZING mechanic) want to beef it up a lil bit... so im looking for ideas from u ford pros... should i keep the 3.0 and modify it? and if so what should i so? or should i swap an 8 in? and which one and how much would the motor run me? thanks guys!

Re: 90 taurus gl wagon...

It will all boil down to how much you want to spend.

Just asking what someone else would want to do is by no means going to help you in your quest.

I can tell you to drop in a 5.4 stroked out to 6.2 and spend 10k on the engine. That would be a waste for you, but for someone that wants to race the car would have some serious fun in it.

We are talking about a GL wagon here. It is not lke you are going to take it to the strip every chance you get to run it down the 1/4 mile.

Just look at doing a few simple performance mods. Intake and exhaust. I would not waste my money on anything else, heck I would not waste my money on that either.
