what can i do for extra horsepower in my 3.0L sohc


#2

3 liters! why would you want extra horsepower? Short term?


#3

Not much. You not going to find much in the way of traditional go-fast parts for this engine. A lower restriction exhaust and intake will get you a few (probably very few) additional ponies.

For the Taurus, relief is spelled S-H-O.


#4

Replace it with the duratec 3.0 liter.


#5

Nothing; if you got more horsepower, the rods would start to come loose. The suspension wasn’t designed to handle a lot of power anyway, even though there are more powerful engines in the Taurus, there are modifications too.


#6

Enjoy this cars quit comfortable ride, and take it for what it is.


#7

What about one of those Water 4 Gas things?

(I apologize. I didn’t mean it. Really.)

On a 98 Taurus, I think I’d leave well enough alone. This time I’m serious.


#8

Sorry, Josh, but I have to agree with the others. Unless you’re really handy with a plasma torch and a TIG welder and have a big project budget, I think you’re best to just enjoy it as a Taurus or trade it for something more powerful.


#9

#10
