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


1992 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan


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.
