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.
519 RWHP Turbo Lincoln Mark VIII Dyno Run
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.
My Lincoln Mark VIII with sequential tail lights
Update: Because I have been asked so many questions about it, there is a complete write up here:
Added sequential tail lights to the Mark VIII last night. Back in the day, I had a 67 Tbird and I had two friends with 69 Tbirds and I have always missed those sequential lights. In my opinion is is the way the Mark VIII should have come from the factory. It really suits the car.
12 sec Mark VIII outside and in
A pair of 12.5 second passes in my Mark VIII, one from outside the car, one from inside. The blue light you see on the dash indicates the water/meth system is active, the red light indicates the Nitrous system is active. Both go green when in use. The greenish rectangle with numbers in it near the bottom of the console is the air/fuel meter. For a brief second you can see the remote that I use to control all of this, NO extra switches in my Mark VIII!
