And the SHO has landed. NorthgateFord driver getting ready to leave with the Mustang. I told him that the speedometer will be wrong, reset the tune but the car has a 3.55 rear end rather than the 2.73. The stock gear and tlok are in the trunk though

I hope it's not too long till you have another pony jim. it's a real shame the 2013 didn't work out for you. great looking car and I just know it would have gone like a scalded cat if you could have found the issue sooner. no worries buddy i'll bust into the 11's for us both next spring. lol well that is the plan at least.

A few shots of the interior that people were asking me about. I really like this car so far. Only thing that surprised me is that unlike the Mustang, it doesn't have the gauge options like AFR etc that I could bring up, nor a boost gauge. I was surprised since this is the performance version of the Taurus.

Looks a lot like mine. You can get a 3 bar map sensor and tuner and tunes from Livernois. Easy to install and really livens it up.

Thanks Ron, probably waiting until spring to do a tune. I might hit Milan this weekend to get some baseline passes though. I live close to Milan now.

Where is the OBD port? I felt around where it would be on the Mustang and the right side of the steering wheel but couldn't find it.

It is just under the steering wheel to the right. Under the dash. Let me know how you make out at Milan and good luck. Make sure you turn traction control off.
