Well, I know that the police-equipped Taurus was equipped with a 3.8 liter V6
(US built, my friend has one, fast car..), also shoehorned into the engine
bay, don't know if it has 24 valves or not....

More of that above! But some below this time...

Sorry Eliot, but I just thought I'd add to the thread...

Just changed the engine oil (with Mobil 1, 5W30) on the S4 this afternoon
after I took delivery from CT yesterday, and it's a truly AWESOME car! It
takes the potholes with ease, hardly transmitting any of the shock, and the
seats also help a bit...we just made a run from northern NJ to Philadelphia
and back, and the car was *phenomenal*! Anyone even mildly interested in the
car should really test-drive it - it's totally worth the price, but make sure
you try a few, plus a new S6, so you can really get an idea how the car
should sound, handle, etc...

Can't wait for Ned Ritchie to get back home!
