That was in the 60's, i'm also under the impression that that's it, but somehow I also feel like we're forgetting one...

As this engine was considered to be too small and too expensive its career would have been very short, were it not for the Rover engineers, who bought and it and imprved the desgin further for a long lasting career in many British built cars. Only with the demise of the Morgan plus8 last year its production finally ended.

I think the original Taurus SHO used a Yamaha built 3.0 V6(220 hp). The 3.4L versions in the newer Taurus was Yamaha designed and Ford built.

There's one 1/4 scale Viper engine on there somewhere too... unfortunately you could buy 5 or 6 used Viper RT/10s for the price of it

As far as the SHO engine goes, it was different in that it was a 60 degree V8, and an updated and enlarged version is now being used in the Volvo SUV.

A Super Truck Sponsered by Tonka has a 14L TurboDeisel 6 cylinder made by Detroit Diesel. The 250 GTO had a 2.9L V-12.

4 = 3.3L


So i guess they didnt give the SRT-4 its fare share. If you think about the 3.3 in the neon.... It would haul ass. 3.3L.... about 290hp.... and about almost 320ft/lbs of tq!!!! That would be amazing.

I know this is an old thread but I have a question if anyone is still out there watching. How does the 215 compare in size and weight to the Ford 289 or 302?
