I believe FOrd put in a Yamaha engine in the Taurus SHO. Im serious. Japanese engines are not known to have strong grunt off the line.

wanna race? 1/4 mile or twisties... and don't gimmie that your car handles amazingly, cuz a 2003 325i does a .86 G in the skidpad, and mine does a .85 (http://www.mustanggt.org/magtest.htm), and it's an 87 "bag of shit" ford and i have some suspension mods too...

back it up man...

But believe me, i have tons of respect for bimmers, just not guys who worship them and are being cocky!

Well, I am not being cocky, but I beat an SHO fair and square........I haven't been a fan of fords because of personal experience.......I think the 5.0L are a lot better then the 4.6L ones, my friend had one and it was a good straight line car, not in the twisties...

I don't really want to get into it, but even if your mustang has suspension mods, I wouldn't go challenging a BMW 3er in the twisties (especially if they can drive). Sure, your car has 300rwhp, and will just smoke my car in the 1/4 mile, BUT I did not buy my car for that reason, I bought it for quality, styling, design, prestige, braking, handling, and overall build quality. I am sorry but you cannot tell me that Ford has huge quality issues. I worked at Ford for 8 months, and they are probably the worst cars I have ever seen. The most recalled vehicle?? FORD Focus. Like 5 of them get towed in everyday. Pick up trucks? I have never seen so many unhappy customers that bring them back with numerous problems. We even had to send back a lot of NEW cars because they had problems like the heat/ac wouldn't work, transmission problems, etc.. I respect that people buy what they like, and props to anyone who is driving what they love. I guess the point of my of my stupid rant is that you should be careful who you challenge! ANYTIME you would like to see how your car can handle on the track or at the twisties, bring it on! Damn that was very stupid of me I am usually not like that at all sorry man...........
