It will physically fit, but you will have to custom alot to make it work. Mounts, wiring and computer, questions about transmission bolting up/adapter plate or SHO transmission, etc.
You would be much better off finding an original engine replacement. Nothing else will be plug and play. If you want to spend a bunch of money and time, anything can be done.

Good question. I am not as familiar with the regular Taurus engine as I have only ever owned SHO versions. There is a taurus forum https://www.taurusclub.com
I haven't been there in a while, but they are familiar with all manner of modifications for the more common Taurus platforms.

Even with the SHO motor from the early v6-v8, (not the new twin turbo) substantial higher engine output is hard to obtain without forced induction (turbo, Supcharg, nitrous) to where you really notice a jump. I have finally, after many, many years, determined that you need the right platform at the beginning to get reliable higher performance in a daily car. If it's a part time frankenstein toy then anything goes.
