Hello to anyone who has industry knowledge of the engine that’s in the Ford Taurus. I would like to pose a question, is the cyclone engine that comes in the 2010-up Taurus the 3.5 actually a Nissan engine? The reason I ask is that I was looking for headers for my 2014 Taurus SEL and I stumbled upon a set of headers for the Nissan Altima 3.5 and the flanges look identical to the exhaust manifold on my Taurus SEL. So if anyone can answer this question I would appreciate it because it would create access to a bunch of performance upgrades that as of now we are unable to get like headers thanks

Sadly just because they look the same doesn't mean they are.

What I plan to do is go to the parts store and have them show me the gasket for both manifolds the Nissan and the Taurus and if they are fairly close I can probably work with them

Or save some time and just look online...

Your plans for using Nissan parts won’t work well at all. 

I’d say keep looking for headers, otherwise you’re looking at a custom fabrication job.

I would say close but no cigar. Unless you have means to alter the equipment, the ports look smaller on the Nissan and the bolts look spaced a bit closer.
