buying a new engine

Hi I have a 1999 Ford taurus and in about 2 years I am going to put a new engine in it. I want to put a SHO engine in the car. First of all, is it even possible and second, how should I approach buying an engine? Where should I look for the engine? and what matters when buying an engine? I want around 250 hp and I am pretty sure an SHO engine would get me somewhere around that.

Any help would be appriciated

You might as well just buy a Taurus SHO instead of making one, which is possible but you would need the matching trans., SHO harness, PCM, subframe with mounts, to name a few of many things.
