Awesome Engine...too bad it's in a Ford!
By 18Driver on

Vehicle

1992 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought this car from a private owner in 1998 w/71,000 miles on it. Put another 70,000 on it before selling it in 2001. Hands down the Yamaha 3.0 liter is one of the finest 24v V-6's ever made. It's a darn shame they stopped making it. The worst part about this car is the taurus guts. A total piece of garbage. I spent thousands keeping this car absolutely perfect and it still had some small problems when I sold it. It ate struts, brakes, batteries, clutches and had a myriade of electrical problems.

Best Features

This engine is a gem! Decent straight line acceleration and makes some great mechanical sounds in the process. Pretty fun car to drive when it's not in the shop.

Worst Features

Put this engine in something other than a heavy, sloppy family sedan built by Ford.
