Does anyone here have a Taurus 2.0 EB?
« on: May 25, 2020, 08:23:01 AM »
I am really curious about these cars.  They are not too common and they are even more uncommon getting a Limited model with all of the features, but they exist.  They are slow (240/270) and as far as I can tell SCT and HP Tuners don't offer support.  They only come in FWD.  The reason why they interest me is getting a fully equipped full-size vehicle that gets 22/32 and has no Ford AWD system to deal with.  A reliable engine and while the trans (6F35) have been known to have issues all of these drivetrain components are easily found in any yard under multiple other vehicles.  This appeals to me as I have been looking for a 2nd vehicle for the house for months as a large reason why I don't push my MKS is it is my daily.  I have a Subaru SVX project car, but that isn't on the road right now.  I need something else so I can feel at ease modifying mine more.  These really appeal to me.  Does anyone here have one?  What are your thoughts?  Is there any tuning available for them?  Not that I would go crazy with them if given the option but it would be good to know.  Thanks.

I wouldn't see why it wouldn't be a good idea. Those 2.0 EB are stout. I have one in my ST. Also to answer your question, I bet Brad can tune that as well.

According to SCT they did not have a strategy code for it and don't offer tuning.

I would reach out to Brad just to see.

Hptuners most likely supports this. Email and ask them. If not they can and will add it. I know they support the 2.0 engine in other fords

SCT supports the 2.0 engine in other Fords as well.  Brad has a tuned Fusion, and he tuned my Focus ST.

Lee from Ortiz had contacted SCT directly about it as they had another customer that had this idea before me and were told there was no support despite the fact that engine is in multiple other vehicles they have support for.

They must be giving SCT devices away. There's no way people are still buying them.
The 2.0 is listed under every ford except the Taurus which means its probably just a typo.
Email them or call them and ask. It really could be that simple.

I will go to the effort of calling myself if I get one, but it isn't a primary factor in buying it.  I just want something the same size with much better MPG and less likely to break so I can do stupid things with my Lincolns.  lol
