up in the air...sho?

I'm thinking...if something ever goes wrong with ny newly rebuilt motor I will to a total swap. I have a 91 Taurus sho. Would the swap be practical. Or wishful thinking?

How deep are your pockets? I think it would be a kickass swap. Only thing wrong with those shos, i think, is the drive train configuration.

SHO engine is a poor idea, just as bad as any other FWD engine into an S12 idea. And RB is a bitch, so much customization. Just get an SR20DET and fall in love with the ease of installation and the huge aftermarket. Besides, the car will be WAY better balanced.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

Pfft, 1JZ.... 1.5JZ...  I can't remember if it's the 1 block and 2 head, or 2 block and 1 head, but they make a better motor!

Yes! 2JZ block with the better flowing(and optional VVTi)  head from the 1JZ would be glorious!
