    Soo the title says all, I will be real with you guys, its been the holidays, I could use some extra money , soo, I sold my DA for 3k, and now im Ever soo glad I did, you might have seen the da pictures with my buddys Taurus SHO (the blue car) , ive allways been interested in them , been around them for a year or soo now, just happened to jump on craigslist and find this one for 1500, its a 91 "PLUS" sho package, dohc badging and the fiberglass hood and a bunch of other misc stuff, went to it, its a original 1 owner , 50x thousand miles, and has lots of aftermarket goodies on it , its 3.2 swapped (3.0s were 5 speed 3.2's were auto's) soo its 3.2 5 speed, has a aftermarket y pipe, intrax shocks and springs, and a magnaflow axleback, its got 11.6 inch 96 mustang brake upgrade, the interior was ragged out when I got it (old man took his husky everywhere with him for the last 15 years lol) soo I gutted that shit and threw my elcheapo racing seats in it lol its going to be my new dd, its got INSANE power over any honda ive ever had or built, it makes ever single import ive owned look like a joke power wise, handling wise, it has room for improvement, but with some aftermarket sway bars and more meat on the ground it will be right on the money, I love how underestimated it is , I threw my chevy truck front lip on it, much more to come with this car lol

    the motor and trans are made completely by yamaha, all ford did is bolt it to the subframe , ive got a ect tuner plugged into my ecu, it revs to 8k effortlessly making power the entire way

    I'm sorry to say- but you must not have been building very fast or powerful imports then. Every SHO I ever raced in my Civic, I completely demolished- and mine wasn't even that fast.

    But nice SHO. :D

    All 1st and 2nd gens, never found anyone in a 3rd that knew what they had- mostly soccer moms.

    lol ive owned and built many swapped/turbocharged hondas, and out of the box power, the sho has GOBS bore torque and a much larger power curve than any honda ive ever owned

    No shit. Its a 3.2l V6, and you're comparing it to an inline 4.

    Honda's are slow?!?! No way!

    Not bad. Any aftermarket grille options? The stock one is horrible.

    Yep, Hondas aren't real cars anyway. They're slow piles of shit that are senseless to own.

    :rolleyes:
