Loud Ford Taurus SHO, Ford Mustang 5.0
DtRockstar1 takes a ride in a very loud Ford Taurus SHO with 2008 Mustang mufflers, and we're cruising
with a Ford Mustang 5.0.
This is not your every day Ford Taurus! Thank you to usernames

Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
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!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!

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!
NO HEAT: Ford Taurus Heater Core Removal
A very common issue on the 12v OHV engines. No or low heat in the winter is
no fun. Follow my video series to fix it yourself and fix it right!
Before replacing the heater core follow my flush procedure so we don't clog
the new core HERE. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfjE0RGVFJ0

San Diego STREET RACING
1320Video made a visit down to SoCal to see what kind of badass street cars
roamed the streets at night. A few badass Supras, swapped & turbo'd nissans, GT-R's, Corvettes, twin turbo 350Z, a bike all came out to play on short
notice making for quite a night of street racing!
92 Taurus SHO Turbo Tial bov
Here is the video of the tial blow off valve on the car. Surges only a
little bit, if i was venting to atmosphere on a draw through setup i could
use the correct spring and get no surge.
Ford Probe SHO part 2
Heres my 1990 Ford probe LX with a SHO swap nearly complete. After
countless hours of wiring, and fabricating a y pipe, the Exhaust is hooked up, the accessories work, and
it seems to run great!
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. : )
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.
