Left-back Taylor is preparing for his first experience of a Cardiff v Swansea clash ahead of arguably the biggest derby in the rivalry's 101-year history.
The 27-year-old has previously played in the Tees-Wear derby for Middlesbrough against Sunderland, but admits he has found there to be an extra edge to the build-up to this weekend's contest.
Swansea will start as favourites, but Taylor has called on the Cardiff faithful to create a hostile atmosphere, without allowing emotions to run too high, and help the Bluebirds to a win to match their memorable success against Manchester City.
"I've not experienced a rivalry of this sort before," he said. "There's a lot of hostility, but I hope that passion does not spill over. We hope to use the atmosphere to our advantage and do something similar to what we did to Manchester City.
"My message to the fans is be passionate, be vocal and get behind the team - but don't overstep the mark. We want a good, entertaining game for the fans and hopefully we win.
"Swansea are a very good footballing team and they like to play the ball on the ground a lot.
"But it is important for us to get three points and we want to give our fans something to cheer about. Hopefully we can have the edge."
Sunday's fixture will be watched by a sell-out crowd and a huge global television audience as the teams meet in the top flight of English football for the first time.
While the fixture has not always enjoyed a prominent status outside of south Wales, Taylor has little hesitation in declaring it the equal of the Celtic v Rangers rivalry in which his manager Malky Mackay previously featured.
"There has been a lot more media spotlight on this game. The fans keep stopping me in the street and telling me what the game means to them," he said.
"This is bigger than three points and there is a lot of pride at stake for both teams. It's a massive for both sets of supporters.
"I've played in Middlesbrough and Sunderland derbies, but it is nothing compared to this. It's on a par with Celtic and Rangers for me."
