Ford Taurus 3.0L 12v Head Gaskets Replacement Pt 1
This video is finally done and out for your viewing pleasure, I had to
break it up into two parts. This should be the ultimate reference for this
job on a Ford Taurus and most detailed on the web. Hope this helps!
Spotted a SHO in Mexico! High speed roll
Here's a video of a fast Ford Taurus SHO with a Supercharger making mid 450hp. I'm recording in my
friends Evo that got Dyno'd around 440hp. We did a
few runs out there and low end seems that we had the edge and higher rolls
the SHO proved too much!
Ford Taurus 3.0L 12v Timing Cover Coolant Leak Repair
In this video I show how to remove the front cover on the 3.0L 12v Vulcan
engine. Coolant leak from the main coolant ports is very common on these.
This can be a very costly repair, with this video I am sure anyone with any
mechanical experience can handle this job with ease.

2010 SHO vs 2010 Camaro SS
In Luskville, west of Ottawa, Canada. Second portion of 1/4 mile was in
bad shape, very bumpy! The trap speed are slower by about 2mph because of
I started late R/T of .349 for SHO and .03 for the SS :
SHO = 12.74 at 108mph (intake, Exhaust, suspension and tune LMS stage 4+)
SS = 12.85 at 110mph (intake and tune)
We ran all day together and I was consistent with my 12,7's, but he ran
anywhere between 12.76 and 13.85, depending on his launch. On that race,
he had a good launch.... As for the SHO, it is AWD,so no excuses. : )
2010 SHO vs 2007 Magnum SRT8
Magnum had a better reaction time (.04 vs .19), I caught up with him and
had a better time 12.81 at 107.17 vs 12.89 at 108.21), but because I
started late, it doesn't show that way. I have been running between 12.77
and 12.83 all day, him between 12.79 and 12.98... We had good races,
Mods SHO : Non-PP, Stage 4+ by Livernois, custom Exhaust, Airaid cold air intake, H&R springs.
Mods Magnum SRT8 : Diablo tuned, around 465 hp/465tq
2010 SHO 12's sec.
In Luskville west of Ottawa, Canada.
Temperature was around 50F, slight tailwind (about 5mph), but that track is
very bumpy! I ran many races that day. That was an average one, my best
has been 12.71s. at 107.93 mph. First 60 feet aroun 1.80 to 1.85 and my
best 1/8 mile pass was 8.129 at 84.982 mph... Enjoy and please comment!
Sleepers Two Official Trailer
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
