Gearhead Tuning’s New Air-to-Air bar/plate intercooler for the Ford Taurus SHO/Flex Ecoboost.

As more automotive enthusiasts grow older, start families, and begin to need more room in their vehicle, their 2/4 door sport compact vehicles start to become less practical and more of an old memory. The Ford Taurus SHO and Flex Ecoboost have been a proper upgrade that checks all the boxes when looking to still have fun driving a full-sized sedan or small SUV while being an efficient people mover. The twin-turbo V6 in the Ecoboost cannot help but put smiles across passengers faces compared to the standard naturally aspirated V6 with almost 100 HP less. Luckily for the enthusiasts that still prefer a low center of gravity and have no use for extra space and added weight. Ford packed the same 355 hp twin turbo motor to continue in the legacy of the Super High Output (SHO) Ford Taurus (Winning 2010 ESQUIRE’S INAUGURAL “CAR OF THE YEAR” FOR MEN TO DRIVE, EVERYDAY!) With the latest fourth-generation equipped with all-wheel drive, it brings the SHO name back like a phoenix from the ashes, on to winding roads and fun slippery surfaces.

These systems require a supplemental heat exchanger (i.e. radiator) to cool the liquid running through the intercooler. These types of heat exchangers are usually front mounted and/or accessible to fresh-air-flow.
