I was just wondering how the performance of an SHO compares to that of a 3000GT SL. I've read that the SHO has about the same HP. For example, in a straightaway, how would an SHO Auto fare against an SL Auto? Thanks in advance.

It's funny you should mention this.
I raced my (former) boss at the dragstrip one night.
My '91 ES against his '92 SHO.
I kicked his ASS! YEAH!
By .01 seconds.
All in all it was a pretty tight match. The guy's at work called it the "Dueling Sidewinders"

But at least I Won....

Hey, I am glad you mentioned this, too. I have a really cocky friend(well, not really), who said his 91 SHO V8 could smoke my 91 ES. Glad to find out i could smoke him. Both are sticks, though. He said his car has over 270hp stock, and that he smoked an LT1 vette. But, i just think this guy is full of crap.

HOpe i have the same results!

Wait a minute. The previous generation Taurus SHO had a Yahama V-6, not a V-8. And the current generation SHO now has a Yamaha V-8, which is a little slower than the V-6.

The stick V-6's run 15.2-15.4 in the quarter with an excellent driver.

91 SHO had a 220hp v6
and if he thinks he beat a LT-1 vet (with a stock SHO), he did not know, but the vet was not even racing. lol

I have to laugh at the "cocky" SHO drivers....my mom drives an SHO ! I guess that is pretty cool for a "mom" car.
