Rick Bottom Designs was given the keys to a 2011 Ford Taurus SHO and the custom car builder decided it wanted to hear more from the Blue Oval sedan. The 365-horsepower EcoBoost V6 has been bumped up by a Hahn Racecraft Stage 1 upgrade package, meaning this SHO is now putting out 465 hp. Re-christened as the SHOx, further modifications include a performance Exhaust system, cold air intake kit, large Baer brakes hidden behind 22-inch Axiom forged wheels and a custom body kit.
It's not the engine, however, that is making all the noise. We said Rick Bottom Designs wanted to hear more from the car... so the tuner installed a 16,000 Watt stereo system capable of blaring the most intense block-rockin' beats. The car has been modified to a two-plus-two seating arrangement, and we imagine that potential fifth passenger will be glad they now have to walk, since all his or her Taurus SHOx-riding friends are going to be deaf.

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!

2013 Ford Taurus SHO Walkthrough - New York Auto Show 2011
Ford's reintroduced for 2010 Taurus SHO was already a very capable sedan,
coming with 365 horsepower and 350
pound-feet of torque and a 0-60 mph time of around 6.0 seconds. In fact,
the EcoBoosted V-6 SHO was even able
to hold its own against a V-8 powered Audi A6, as you'll see by clicking
here, so the latest 2013 model making its debut this week at the 2011 New
York Auto Show must be really something special.

Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.

This can be a very costly repair, with this video I am sure anyone with any
