Re: taurus mod time

Why in the wide wide world of sports are you going to spend that much time and money on a Taurus ? You know the body and suspension will not take that H.P. and torque.
You don't say what year. It's still going to be an eight hundred dollar car. Maybe you
know something we don't know ?

Re: taurus mod time

All the best. I'm a Taurus fan. Go for it. That should pop a few eyes open when you
pass them fast enough to suck the gas out of their tanks. Let us know how it turns out. I love your idea. I'm doing the same with a 92 LX. When was the last time you saw a 92 Taurus LX 3.8 with a factory C.D. player, keyless entry, automatic climate control,automatic headlight dimmers, twilight sentinel, Floor shift, 4 wheel A.B.S. disk
brakes, Moon roof, chrome rims, Factory tinted glass all around, Heated mirrors,
steering wheel and shifter handle in leather, with crushed lavor seats, Heated front
windshield, yes this thing has a heated front windshield. Power mirrors, and a transmission that has 141 miles on it. They took it out 4 times and fixed it 4 times before they got it right. I put on the last 60 miles getting it home. I love your idea.
Get er done.
