They can barely handle the horsepower that the stock engine produces, so modified engine horsepower would make it fail even sooner, so if your thinking about any engine mods then you better think about doing a tranny swap to a heavy duty unit or something from B&M transmissions.

what about the 3.4L DOHC SHO V8 the bolt pattern is the same? and its easier to upgrade


The SHO tranny is a much heavier duty that a stock Taurus trannsmission. I have not heard of anyone putting an SHO behind a regular Taurus engine, I think cause it is an electronics nightmare to do so.
