Without looking up exact specs I believe they had about 200-250hp. I haven't heard of anyone making a ton of power with aftermarket parts either. I love the cars, but the Taurus' were boats. I know "high performance shit" is different in everybody's mind, but in mine a land-yacht with 250hp won't beat a high performace car.

my bro had one in his taurus but he could only get it up to 120ish. i here ppl brag about beating camaros and firebirds all the time here in des moines, i have to shut em by telling them they were proly racing a stock v6. i don't know if that's what you meant by high performance or not.

It would be a cool project, but I don't think you'd be beating many modern-day V8s. Look at the power it's putting out, like I said, probably 200-250hp. Factor in that you're putting it into a vehicle that has the aerodynamics of a barn, and that even if you made a lot of power, without a good suspension you'll just spin the rears (no weight on them). Now put that up against a new Mustang GT (~325hp, more aerodynamic, and will launch better), GTO (400hp) or some MOPAR V8s (~325-425hp if I'm not mistaken) and it doesn't stand a chance. Putting in and modding up an older Ford 5.0 would yield MUCH better results.
