Review

A fast 5-speed car with great
handling with good high preformance car.
Bad for tranmission problems
because I put in 2 of them and the trans
when it breaks it leaks on the clutch
making it a replacment too. Hard on the
front drive axels being replaced about 3
times too.
Motor is still great and not
burning oil or knocking on startup.


Best Features

Motor will last and transmission if you don't drive it hard all the time which is hard when you have all the power.


Worst Features

Transmission needs to be beefed up more than the 1995 trans. that I put in which has an extra piece of aluminum plate added.

Review

This is possibly one of the best cars I
have ever owned. It is fast, fun, easy
to modify(I have a supercharged one
with over 530hp and it runs 12.8s at
the 1/4). And when you want it too it
hauls your family to where they want to
go.


Best Features

fast steering, FWD, great hp unmodified,stealthy


Worst Features

nothing

Review

I have now owned by SHO for 5 years -
it is one fast car - modify just a
little and it gets down right scary.
Too bad it has a ford body - if the car
was built like the engine it would be a
guaranteed hit - but I still love it -
nothing can keep up with it. I am now
restoring the body [only part that
needs work!]. It was the success that
almost was a hit...


Best Features

0-60 - in under 6 seconds [yes, its modified], 5 spd tranny - and killer "bust your dentures" suspension.


Worst Features

Give it a body worthy of the engine.

Review

Watch out for *expensive* replacement
parts for this car-- the body and
interior may be a Taurus (ie, cheap
mass-manufactured parts), but the engine
was low-volume... There aren't a large
number of aftermarket suppliers for this
car, so engine parts are expensive.
Qualified repair shops are also tough to
find...
