    I am now officially THE HIGHEST HP Ecoboost Taurus SHO on record, and I believe of any EB platform as well.

    Sorry this was/is so late in the day, as I was busy motoring around the great City of Chicago today with my best friend, and photographer pal Jeff, owner of HKMediaChicago, performing a new updated photo shoot/session.

    We picked up one of his models (thanks Jen!) and umm yea..... so new pics are on the way as well. :woo-hoo:

    Hope y'all enjoy the video. :omgsho:

    Thanks for making this viewable on tablets, the links on FB were not at first.

    Congratulations! Awesome numbers. Really looking forward to the Dyno challenge at next years Convention. Yamaha V6 vs ECOboost V6!

    Can't wait to see track #'s!! Low 11's?

    Love the model too :D

    What happened to original motor? You and A6 had similar builds from LMS and both blew up.

    What mods are done to get that kind of HP? I can't find it anywhere on the HK site.
    Beautiful car too!

    Your car needs to be in a Magazine. MM&FFs needs to live up to the 'Fast Fords' part of their name and start highlighting the capability of the new SHO's. There is not a gear head in the world that does not find 617awhp impressive.

    Btw, glad you mentioned in your thread that this is the highest HP 'ECOboost' SHO, versus your thread title. Highest HP SHO title still belongs to the Yamaha V6. Can't recall if it's 627whp or 637whp. Of course, those numbers have never been 'officially' confirmed with a Dyno sheet. Hopefully the owner will do so soon.

    NICE! Sounds like one hell of a build! Anything done to the drivetrain?


    Id take that shortblock and use it in a 15' F150 tremor. I mean it probably weighs the same and has a bed lmao.

    Is that 600 awhp literally just done for validition or can it acutally use that boost level for an extended period of time???? IOW is that useable or was it just a "turn it up and pray".

    Literally my inspiration in every aspect... One of the baddest cars around and that is of ANY build. Clean exterior, plenty of customization, and more than enough engine to back it up. Definitely looking forward to having a car that is even close to that level! Excellent job man
