MaxBoost 445 Time!
Ford’s twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 “Ecoboost” engines are just packed with potential. In stock form, it produces anywhere from 355-365 horsepower and 350-420 lb-ft. of torque in vehicles such as the Ford F150, Lincoln MKS, Ford Taurus SHO, and a variety of others. Hennessey Performance has tapped into that potential with the new MaxBoost 445 upgrade for the EcoBoost engine.
Designed for the Ford Taurus SHO, the new MaxBoost 445 from Hennessey Performance drastically increases performance with a flat power curve for acceleration in all situations. The upgrade program includes a Hennessey dual cold air intake system, polished hard-piping to the turbochargers, and an HPE engine management calibration along with a CORSA stainless steel cat-back exhaust system. All of the required gaskets, fluids, dyno testing, and calibration are also included in the engine conversion and results in a total of 445 bhp at 5,400 RPM.
The increase in power allows for the Ford Taurus SHO to accelerate to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and speed through the quarter-mile in 12.8 seconds at 109 mph.
Hennessey Performance also includes a number of other goodies in addition to the engine upgrade as part of the MaxBoost 445. A pair of serial numbered plates is installed on the dashboard and engine, ‘MaxBoost 445’ badges are fitted to the fenders, a chrome or black ‘Hennessey’ badge is installed on the exterior, and Hennessey embroidered headrests are worn on the interior with the upgrade package.
The new Hennessey Performance MaxBoost 445 for the 3.5-liter “Ecoboost” V-6 is available for the Ford Taurus SHO and other models with the same engine. The entire upgrade comes standard with a one-year/ 12,000-mile limited warranty as well.
