2011 Mustang GT Borla Exhaust
This Mustang GT uses Borla
S-Type Catback Exhaust.
Sorry. Recorded at a parking lot, there was not enough road to accelerate
as it should be.
Thanks to BMC Extreme Customs (creators of the Black Mamba Hood)
This Stang is a 2011 5.0 manual V8 (don´t get confused with the different
emblems my car has) and I got inspired mostly on the 2010 Shelby GT 500
Thanks for watching and for all the major positive comments.

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.
2011 Ford Taurus SHO Twin Turbo - HD
Will the new Twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost™ V6 play catch-up or
catch-me-if-you-can to their V8
When Ford announced its all-new 2010 Taurus SHO as a new-generation premium
performance sedan, we took it to mean the term literally. So what better
yardstick to measure Ford's claim than a current premium performance sedan
with a proven record, the 2009 Infiniti G37 Journey?
The twin-turbo Taurus wouldn't have it
easy, seeing how the Infiniti G35 sedan had dethroned the BMW 335i sedan in
our five-car comparison last year. More recently a G37 devoured Acura's
high-tech TL SH-AWD without so much as a by-your-leave in a head-to-head
But perhaps the reanimated Super High Output (SHO) Taurus will once again
have a few sleeper sedan tricks for the establishment.

The foundation of the new 2010 Taurus SHO is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine. This advanced powerplant
generates an estimated 365 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and
350 ft.-lbs. of torque at 3,500 rpm, resulting in significantly improved
power, torque and fuel economy compared with larger, normally aspirated
engines. This also is Ford's most powerful EcoBoost engine.
A key feature of this EcoBoost
engine is gasoline direct injection. The direct injection of fuel into the
cylinder during the intake stroke, as opposed to port-style injection to an
externally mounted intake, produces a well-mixed air-fuel charge. Fuel
vaporization during the intake stroke cools the incoming air, improving
volumetric efficiency and lowers the likelihood of knock.
The results are improved throttle response, reduced cold start emissions
characteristics and improved fuel economy. The cooled charge enables an
increased compression ratio, improving efficiency at partial load, while
the higher compression ratio allows for better volumetric efficiency under
full load engine behavior. Customers will experience normally aspirated V-8
power, without compromising V-6 fuel economy.
The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 also uses
twin turbochargers, as opposed to a
single unit. The reduced size of each turbocharger results in reduced internal inertia,
allowing this advanced engine to avoid the "turbo lag" often prevalent in earlier-generation
turbocharged applications. From the
driver's seat, the rewarding result is linear power delivery across a broad
torque band from 1,500 through 5,500 rpm. Peak torque building quickly off
idle ensures responsive acceleration from a standing start.
Test Drive: 1996 Ford Taurus SHO
In this video I give a full test drive of the 1996 Ford Taurus SHO. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. I take it on various road
surfaces and demonstrate performance and driving characteristics. A
thorough test drive to give a greater appreciation of the vehicle.
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. : )
