I thought the reason people love the contour svt is because it is a great all around car for the price and it is RARE. Why not let this guy put a 302 into his contour. It will be one of a kind; no one else will have it.

also Don't knock it till you have tried it!!

BREAKING NEWS!!!
there might be a V8 powered contour in a city 45 minutes north of my location. i am going to try and investigate this report but it came from a very reliable car source. this is not a test this is an actual sighting.

Just think of what an AWD Turbo SVT would be capable of ...

Well, there's you, and many like you, (most people, I'd say) and then there's the dreamers who don't care why.

It doesn't have to make sense. It doesn't have to satisfy a balance sheet.

Why Everest? Why the North Pole? Why the moon? Why would you want to build a 3.5" hard drive, when all of our customers have 12" drive transports? Why do we like shows like "Monster Garage?"

I dont know if this has been mentioned before, but what about the rear end / suspension from a 4wd Escape? Isnt it based on the Contour platform? I'm sure it could be adapted your intended setup.

I doubt it could handle the power upgrades to make this a viable option. Its kinda like the Honda crv parts being used to make AWD integ's and civics, of the 8 I know of, 7 have blown up, and the 8th hasn't been running yet. Again, I ask if anyone has considered the 3.4L V8 out of a taurus sho? Will it fit to the MTX? Adapters needed? I spent some time in the Kit-Car trenches, there are a lot of adapters out there to combine engines and transmissions you would never think would work together. The sho V8 is a massively powerful engine with very good tuneability.
Just wondering.
