Is there a question...?

I think he's asking if anyone has taken a Gen III car and swapped a SHO V8 (or maybe any V8, like one from a Continental, or some other platform entirely) in place of whichever V6 it had.

To OP, it can be done, however you'd need an entire donor car in which to borrow the drivetrain and wiring harness from so that it could be swapped. The issue is finding a good donor and quality candidate. Also, from a completely personal stand point, justify the cost to swap all that into a normal car over purchasing a SHO in good shape. If you're trying to re-engine the car with some other engine, I mean, it's a small engine bay. A Duratec already takes up a fair amount of room. The Continentals have no room if you've looked at them. Any platform outside of a Ford config, I mean that's a world to be discovered.
