SVT, Saleen, Roush or Steeda SHO!

I think the new SHO is awesome... but seriously!

Lets talk about the serious potential these cars clearly have!!

I can only imagine if one or some of the leading Ford Performance Specialists had tweaked the new SHO to REALLY perform with some of the other more respectable performance luxury sedans like AMG, Dinan, M series and more!

What do you guys think?

it'd be cool but get pricey. I know that SVT is only allowed a mustang ad a truck now so that sucks

Well considering the performance the SHO currently provides... and for the money I think it's a fair buy...

For the "Dedicated American Enthusiast" I just think a 600+ hp AWD BMW, AUDI and Mercedes Destroying american Sedan would be badass... not that it doesn't run good now... I just see the potential...

Hell as quiet as the car was already designed especially with emissions in mind...

Just think what an SRI, high flow cat, 3" exhaust and better tune would do!!!

(for the "Non-Green" states)

Would be cool to see a Roush or SVT, but would be way overpriced. As is stock I think they were seriously misguided when they priced the new SHO, it needs to be about 5 grand less.

That's the only downside with Ford... And they're only going to try to get you even more at the dealer!

That should be very interesting! And would make for a cheaper alternative probably then just buying a hopped up version from the dealer!

I saw my first new Taurus on the road, it was a SEL. They live a few blocks down from me!

I saw the SHO at the dealer on Monday and sat inside and played around with stuff, pretty damn cool.

Wonder what a beefed up one would be like?

I'm guessing Steeda will get in there, and K&N for intakes, Magnaflow, Corsa, Borla, etc, for exhausts...

I could just see an all black SHO with a blacked out grill... no chrome ANYTHING and lowered on some black 20"s (no polished lip or anything) and some nasty gurgling exhaust and loud intake and spooling from the turbos... Hmm...

rousch's and saleen's basic basic package is nothing more that body kit, different rims and bolt-ons engine wise and they charge a fortune for it! now if you go forced induction route expect to pay wayyyyy more! i have never seen the worth in the bullet, mach, steeda,rousch, shelby, and whoever else can cash in on the mustang is not worth the price they charge for the mods provided
