Duratec guy sayin hi

Here's my 2000 Ford Taurus SES. It's black on black, has the optional 200hp DOHC Duratec engine, and is loaded exept for leather or automatic climate control. I just got a custom chip for it that will hopefully put me in the 15's. It now shifts awesome at WOT, and has set off the traction control light on the 1-2 shift when it's wet out. Compared to how lazy and anemic the stock shift setting was it's a huge difference.

I am going to be getting a 2003 CL Type-S in about a week & 1/2, and when it arrives the Taurus will be put up for sale. It has served me well, and definitely gets me where I need to go in somewhat style, if not at least originality.













Comments/Suggestions are welcome, good & bad.

how much are you looking to get for the taurus?? (not for me for a friend of mine) He's into cars a lil outside the norm. Also where are you located? NY/NJ/CT or MI?

I have no idea why it says nj/ny in my avatar, i'll change that right now. As of right now the Taurus isn't for sale to the public just yet. I have a couple family family members interested before I put it up for sale.

The CL-S is Aegean Blue, and I got it about a week and a half ago. I put up a thread in the Acura forums.
