This is my buddy's turbo-charged 4.6L DOHC 32V 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII getting tuned and pulling a good run on the Dyno producing 518.6 HP at the wheels and 555.8 ft lbs of torque! The car was looking rough at the time the video was taken but it continues as a work in progress. It's much better looking now.
T56 Mark VIII Burnout
Having fun with My t56 Mark VIII.
This is by no means a step by step guide but a quick overview of what i did if you have any questions feel free to ask!
1.T56 from 03 cobra
2.spec stage 1 clutch
3.Stock Mustang GT flywheel (dont get a cobra they are 8 Bolts the gt is a 6 bolt like marks)
4. Mustang clutch pedal cut off and welded to mark 8 brake assembly (pic's in here
5.Fab your own shifter like blender head did in this thread mine is the same but i have no pics. http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/showthread.php?t=42658
6. also yo have to move your computer because it is right wear the clutch needs to go. for this you have a couple options you can do what i did and just cut out the heat and AC tube and duct tap the Comp up there you can still put the cover back on and it will look fine but you have no air form the 2 air duct you cut off. the plus of this is it takes no extentions of the wires and took me about 20 mins but it is not as clean of an install as blenderhead who rewired it all under the dash but that takes longer it really your call both menthods work fine.
you could also go with a hydrolic clutch but i have never installed one of those so you would have to ask blender about that.
7 u will need a custom driveshaft i recoment dennysdriveshaft.com they are a little pricy but have great service and made me a perfect driveshaft.
Some other usful links for your swap that i used this might take a couple hours to read all of it but it will really help when you start.

you might want to consider a termec 6060 if you have the cash no shifter probelm and strong but a little pricyer and i think you have to go with a hydrolic clutch with this trans.
my car all done sry no in car driving vids http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1ITyo5ck3U
Well good luck the swap will be well worth it in the end if you have any more questions now or along the away feel free to ask.
Clip from Power House Video's Shakedown At ETown. Clip of turbo Mark VIII doing 7's. Excellent video over all no silly depressing ass music! Just straight up engine/tire sound! Would recommend video to all hard core gear heads!
Twin turbo lincoln vs procharged notchback mustang
Just some fooling around after work. We knew what the outcome would be since he trapped a lot better than me. Still trying to figure out movie maker. Tried to slow down the credits but obviously that didn't work too well... Enjoy!
1993 Turbo Lincoln Mark VIII 1/8 mile run @ 7.4 seconds
My buddy's turbo 93' Lincoln Mark VIII during his first run of the night at County Line Raceway in Miami on Friday March 5, 2010. This run posted a 7.4 second 1/8th mile and a 60ft. @ 1.7 seconds, not bad for a heavy car! Check out our other Dyno video from a few months back on it's first stage of the turbo transformation.
