Cool Can I supercharge a stock 3.0 duratech?

I have a '04 taurus with a 3.0 DOHC duratech......can I supercharge this and keep it stock, or am I looking at modifying the compression, pistons, ignition, etc. and does anyone even make performance stuff for these engines?

My advice - Steer away from SHO SHOP. Go to and do a search on SHOSHOP - You'll be GLAD you didn't give them any of your money.

The taurus car club of america -

"the TCCA" (We are TCCoA) is the place to go with these questions.
Rabid Tortise fans over there. I'm a there member too :-) These are the guys/gals who would have tried something like this if it has been done already and will be glad to help you with anything Tortise related. They are a little weak on SHO info, however.

I know of a few people with centrifugal superchargers on their duratec cougar's. I believe they're Vortech setups.
