PP has nothing to do with a civilian car vs a FPIS (squad) car. PP is performance pack.My 2013 SHO needs front wheel hubs. I'm looking for a quality hub and I don't think O'Reilly's cheapest is going to cut it, so I leaned toward the better/best and found a PP hub available. Good idea or bad idea to put the PP hub on my non-PP car?
I registered because of this thread, I think I'll stay for the SHO.
I was interested in the physical different between the two hubs, if there really are two different hubs. Some look up charts show a different P/N for the squad car, some do not. I had a though that other SHO owners may have actual insight. I am looking for better, not cheaper. Buy once, cry once.
You always have good information to pass on. But he's kind of the OP of this entire thread. He can ask whatever he wants. I kind of understood what he's been asking from the very start of this, but I've had no helpful input to add.You asked about hubs for your non-PP SHO. You asked about putting PP parts into your non-PP car. This thread is about SHO vs FPIS. Nothing to do with PP and non-PP.
Back to your question. Go to RockAuto, the non-PP (which is designed to fit your car) is cheaper. I am not saying get the cheapest economy model. I am saying if you pick the exact same brand of your desired quality level, the non-PP part is cheaper than the exact same brand and quality PP part.
The other advantage is you can see the physical differences. For example, select the More Info tab on the Timken PP and non-PP options. You will see all the measurements that are different.
Summary - PP is different than non-PP, PP/non-PP has nothing to do with SHO/FPIS (this thread topic).
SHOmont started the topic and asked about the difference between SHO and FPIS. ERASER5 joined and started asking the difference between a pp and non-PP car, specifically the hub.You always have good information to pass on. But he's kind of the OP of this entire thread.

To the best of my knowledge the 2013 up pursuit interceptor uses the same steering knuckles as the SHO. Performance pack or not, if I'm not mistaken. They upgraded the steering knuckle for a reason. I welcome a correction if I am wrong.
Now if he's inquiring about the early police interceptor gen 1 Taurus SHO. I have no idea. His earlier posts have been inquiries about this particular model run. I am assuming, which is a bad idea, that he's picked up a different car now, that is a Gen 4.
You you are correct sir I apologize.SHOmont started the topic and asked about the difference between SHO and FPIS. ERASER5 joined and started asking the difference between a pp and non-PP car, specifically the hub.
Post #3 was responded to and said that it depends on your intentions for the vehicle.I am exactly on topic.
Post #3 Just curious which has the better suspension and overall performance.
Post #4 The Performance Pack SHO is mostly a police sedan.
I asked about a specific suspension part: Wheel hubs. Not the cost.
So SHOMONT, I found the answer to a specific difference between a non-PP SHO and a Police sedan/PP SHO wheel hubs. The standard wheel hubs are listed a YES to ABS. The wheel hub listed for the Police sedan and the PP SHO and listed as NON-ABS. That is a significant difference! A Police sedan hub in a regular SHO would likely trigger the ABS error light and turning off traction control. This is a no go for me.
The ABS non-ABS also figures into performance. If you were drifting in a left corner turn, the non-ABS would not decide to auto-correct by applying the right front brake and pushing you into bystanders like the Mustang guy did. Traction control is good until it is bad.
That would definitely be a confusion that should be ironed out. PP is Performance Package. There is no such thing as a Police Package for the Taurus. They did not do as they had done in the past with a Crown Vic and a Crown Vic Police Interceptor (CVPI). They decided that there was enough differences and the ordering method would be different enough that you could get a Ford Taurus (with various trim and packages) or you could get a Ford Police Interceptor Sedan (FPIS). This also furthers the point that there are so many differences that they needed to separate them. Similar to the fact that you cannot order a Ford Explorer with a Police Package in this generation. They sold a Ford Police Interceptor Utility. On the CVPI when looking up parts, you would see "with Police Package" or "without Police Package" much like you saw different trim or package options. With the FPIS or FPIU, they are listed as an entirely different vehicle. Yes, some of the parts are interchangeable but, some of the Taurus parts fit Explorers, F150, Flex, etc.I'm not sure, but some of the confusion in this thread may be related to what PP stands for. Some are using it to mean performance package which is an option package for the Taurus SHO and some are using it to mean Police Package (as in the Police Interceptor Sedan).
