the previous Taurus SHO used a Yamaha 24V V6. The current Taurus and
Contour use a Ford designed quad cam 24V V6 (they call Duratec). The
new SHO will have a 3.2l Yamaha 48V V8.
I believe Chrysler has a 24V V6 for their Intrepid/Concorde line.
I think even GM has one for some of their cars. The Big 3 are closing
the gap on the rest of the world...
Now if only I could retro-fit the new Audi 30V V6 to my '93 100CSQ...
