The weekend after the install of the Eaton M90 and initial test runs, I put my car on the Dyno to work out some of the pinging and bugs, as well as get a baseline power curve. Here it is on the rollers, peaking at around 250 horsepower and torque to the front wheels.
2013 Ford Taurus SHO Road Test
Can you drift a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO like Nascar racer Carl Edwards does in
the commercial? I tried and couldn't. This press car didn't have the ESC
button in the center console to disable the stability management system so
try as I might, the car would never get sideways.
I did however find out how great this car is at being a world class sedan.
Around town and in the canyons, this 4400 pound vehicle feels flat out
It's also pretty fast, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds will get your attention and the
immensely capable all wheel drive system, huge brakes and fantastic
suspension will keep it.
I'll go on record for loving the eco-Boost engine platform. The 3.5L Twin turbo V6 is only mildly laggy at the low end but
more than makes up for that once it starts to rev. The practical side is
that you could use all 365 horsepower in this car and
still manage fuel mileage in the mid 20's and then on the highway settle in
at about 30 MPG.
Would I own one, heck yes...as long as it had that ESC button in the center
console to disable the stability management systems so that I could four
wheel drift the tires off the thing.

model is fortified with a Performance pack. Roger Hart gives us his take on
this performance package.

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!
SHO powered buggy dusting an LS-1 buggy the wrong way!
When I dropped the hammer, the front end came up and I got a little out of
sorts. I tried to find him after the race to apologize but he scooted.
My buggy has a 3.2 liter SHO motor from an automatic transmission SHO, with
a Roots style Eaton blower from an 89 Ford Thunderbird SuperCoupe. It's
puts 278 hp to the ground and has 300 pound*feet of torque from about 1200
rpms up to 6000 where the blower runs out of steam. Really should have
gone with an M-112. Now she's turbo'd
and too scary for this old man. Looking to sell her to someone with bigger
cajones. Craigslist Phoenix. $ 34,900.00
I took it to the asphalt drags also and did a 12.48 at 110 mph on knobbie
tires. What a hoot.
Cougar XR7 3.8L Supercharged V6
3.8L Supercharged V6
In 1989 and for the first time in Cougar history, no V8 engine would be
offered. The lower cowl of the new MN-12 chassis did not allow the
traditional 5.0L to clear the hood; engineers would continue to work on
getting the 5.0L to fit without a power decrease and finally get it into
the cars for 1991. In the meantime, the base engine was the
naturally-aspirated 140 HP 3.8L V6. The XR7 and the Thunderbird Super Coupe
would receive the all-new supercharged 3.8L V6. By incorporating the Eaton
M90 the motor put out a respectable 210 horsepower and over 300 lbs
of torque. Optional on the XR7 was a Mazda-derived M5R2 5-speed manual
transmission. The "truck" transmission was chosen because it could manage
the supercharged motor's torque production. Eaton had been urging Ford to
incorporate the modified Roots-type positive displacement pump since 1977.
The 1989 and 1990 Cougar XR7 was winner when Ford finally decided to use it
on the 3.8L V6.
