Arrow 1994 Ford SHO

For anyone that owns this vehicle I'm thinking about getting one at the beginning of this week.

All I want to know is how much hp and torque is stock on this SHO?

Any help is appreciated.

Haha, um....

My name is Jamie I'm from Roanoke, Virginia and I'm 16 years old.

Getting my first car and I'm gonna start heavily modifying it..

And I need to know how much hp and torque a 94' SHO has.

Is that good enough?

3.0 liter DOHC V6
Horsepower: 220 hp @ 6200 RPM
Torque: 200 lb-ft @ 4800 RPM


3.4 liter DOHC V6
Horsepower: 235 hp @ 6200 RPM
Torque: 230 lb-ft @ 4800 RPM

That sufficient for you?

Yeah thank's a lot man.

And I think you mean 3.2L instead of 3.4L because I don't know of any 3.4's but the one I'm getting is a 3.2L V6.

Thanks though.

No Jamie, there is no 3.4L engine for a 1994 Taurus SHO. The choices were a 3.0L V-6 for the manual transmissions and a 3.2L V-6 for the automatics. The 3.2L is a YAMAHA engine and puts out about 225-230 horsepower. My father has a white 1994 fully loaded 3.2L auto-transaxle SHO and it is a nice ride. His only has about 70K on it and it is in mint condition, however, one thing to note on these cars is that they are PROBLEM PRONE. I would seriously suggest a reconsider with heavy mods to this particular car. It is a FORD Halo vehicle for that year and the drivelines and engines are HIGHLY tweaked from FORD. I personally know about 6-8 people that own this vehicle and every one of them has basically had to have certain work done to the car in the ownership of it. Main computers have gone out, body controllers, rear mains, trans seals, etc. I am convinced that if you drive these cars hard enough and for long enough, they will blow up and the cost of repair will be very high even though they are a very quick car and powerful as well. If you appreciate cars and know much about them, there are certain ones out there that should be warranty only and then you get rid of them unless you want a problem child coupled with much $$$. I believe the SHO's are one of them even though they are a nice car. I've done lots of work to my father's and right now, at 70K I am getting ready to replace the water pump as there is an intermittent leak. That will be a BITCH to do because of the complexity of that 3.2L and the clearance issue.

What mods are you looking to do? I believe you mentioned "heavy mods?" Knowing that car, I am cringing lol. Let me know, I am not telling you what to do, just giving you some insightful knowledge that you may do whatever with.

By the way, I am in Richmond, Va., just up the road from you. I went to Va. Tech! :-) Have a good one.

I shouldn't of said heavy mods...all I'm going to do to it is put a sport suspension in, add a new $700 dollar exhaust system (forgot the name) which claims to add 35HP and MAYBE add an intake...I guess that's not heavy.

The SHO is officially mine, I bought it today.

It only has 73,000 miles on it and not a scratch to be found.

Oh and I was just up at Tech to watch a basketball game, haha.

-Jamie


Oh and do you know of any websites that sell parts to SHO's (I.E. hoods, exhaust, ya know?)...Thanks for your help man, I appreciate it.

Ok, those are not too heavy modifications. I take it your's is an automatic? Who did you buy it from (individual or dealer) and did you get a good price? Do you know the history and do you have the maint. records?

The 94' loaded SHOs are nice cars, I just would urge you to do ALL maintainence on it and treat it well and do not over-drive the car. Those things are one serious electrical nightmare potential as well.

So is Blacksburg still on the map? LOL. I was just in Christiansburg getting the exhaust system done on my 76' Electra 225 Limited about 4 weeks ago. If you ever need any exhaust work done, I would HIGHLY recommend Larry Roberts of ROBERT'S MUFFLER there in Christiansburg. He did duals on my Cherokee Sport in 1998 and did such a good job that now, seeing as I have graduated and live and work in my hometown of Richmond, Va., I took my 225 220miles and had him do true duals on that. It's got a 455 Cubic Inch Big Block GM V8 and Larry hooked me up. Racing style duals with nothing in either line from the manifold back but a performance flowmaster 40. I had him take out the pancake converter. Anyways, stop by if you're looking for exhaust work, the man is RIGHT.

I did not see your question. I would suggest checking out the web for stuff like that. My father's is totally stock and I am not much for all the mods for cars of that nature. I would have it shinned up like new money inside and out and keep it totally stock. They are nice cars but I am not into all the ground effects and spoilers and such. I am more than sure you can find all kinds of things online though. Good luck Jamie! :o)

Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out and see if my dad wants to do an all day thing this summer to put some new exhaust on the Shizzo. I don't want ground effects and I certainly don't want a 4-foot high carbon-fiber wing sitting on the back of the beast, haha, I'm keeping the stock spoiler on it cus' I like it. I just wanted to find a place to buy a hood for it, because I've found some pictures of 94' SHOs with custom hoods and I like it...

Thanks for the help and I added you on AIM so I can talk to you sometime a little bit better. Appreciate it. Peace.
