wow, another sho enthusiast. were you ever on baysho
or the shoforum?
as i stated before, the A6 WILL be my next car. but
that's contingent on finding gainful employment after
my present company moves out of state (which will be
at some point this year - no one tells us anything
more than that).
i have the money to comfortably buy one now, but they
can only get cheaper, and we have a wedding to pay
for. i just want to know as much as possible about
them and meet people who might join me when checking
as far as the sho, who knows, i might just keep it.
after all, look at all the cash i've dumped into it.
friggen thing isn't worth enough to sell it.:
1992 Ford Taurus SHO 5 speed
210.5 HP 196.4 LB Torque at the wheels (250 crank HP)
silver on gray with all options
sho shop y-pipe with high flow cats
sho shop underdrive pullies
PRO M 80mm Mass airflow meter
Walbro 190lph fuel pump
sho shop motor mounts
edelbrock RPM exhaust
shonut aluminum sub frame bushings
26mm rear sway bar
sho shop sub frame connectors
Yokohama AVS ES100 225/55/ZR16 tires
