    Hi,

    I have been a fan of the V6 ecoboost basically since its inception into F-150's. I've always liked Tauri but kind of dislike the boringness of the average Taurus. Also its nice to have the "big " engine in a car for once instead of wishing you had it after getting one with the "smaller" powerplant. Yes I realize they are the exact same displacement.

    Its exactly how I would have hoped, an absolute monster. Few cars on the road can keep up and its nice to think of their surprise when the Ford Taurus disappears on the horizon ahead of them. All the while my 2 kids and wife are enjoying basically a luxury car ride.

    I'm hoping to learn some insight into some the quirks of these 4th gen Taurus and see what others have done to improve their performance.

    Thanks,
    FAMOVER - (Family Mover)

    Welcome to mi familia :D, congrats on the new ride. Though I must note the SHO got the ecoboost before the f150 in production. However, the F150 did get the TiVCT engine while the SHO gets the "simpler" VCT version.

    Do post pics of your SHO. We never get tired of gawking!!!
