2013 Taurus SHO

Saw one on the local lot. Did a little research. So question is can these car run as fast as my 2012 mustang with full bolt ons.

Not even if it has mods? Hennessy got one to run 12.6 with tune, exhaust and cold air.

Biggest factor against you..weight. They aren't light cars but the 3.5 EB is no slouch, it loves tuning.
Forget Hennessy, visit the SHO and Ecoboost forums, those guys are posting and showing real world times.

93, intake and the right tune would get you into the low 13's/high-mid 12's. Those guys are doing it all the time. What does a stock 3.7 run? Mid to hi 13's?

For the price that Hennesey is going to charge anyone in order to get their SHO to run in the mid 12's......buy two Mustang GT's instead.........
Edit:
I take it back....they are pretty darn quick for a 4,400 pound four door when you order it with the performance gears:

0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds and the 1.4 mile in 13.7, according to Motor Trend.

It was just for a reference. I would probably go to pro dyno.

Stock for stock, a SHO will generally outrun a 3.7 PP Mustang.

Mod for mod, a SHO will destroy a 3.7 Mustang.

FWIW, a guy I work with has a PP SHO with a Livernois tune, CAI and downpipes and that car is knocking on 11s. I think his best ET was 12.0X and I think his trap was 112 - 115.

Not a bad improvement for less than $3500 in parts.

So ... to answer the OPs question. Racing a SHO with just a few mods, your Mustang will get raped.

I just don't know. They are asking 30k and it has 19,1xx miles on it with warranty. I owe around 12k with 49k miles and could just turbo mine at some point. LOTS of pros and cons but I'm on my phone soooo.......

Well I've seen some vids of 3.7 with a 100 shot in the 11's. I've had nitrous on 2 other mustangs so I know about a proper tune. Just can't determine if the SHO is the right choice. The most important pro is room. The kids (15 and 17) hate the back seat.
