This is me in my new Marquis doing some acceleration runs for my brother to
see since he is in the army and is unable to check the car out in person.
The car doesnt have dual Exhaust on
it at this point but is on order and i will have video of that soon.

1997 Mercury Grand Marquis with 5-speed Manual Transmission, First Drive
A couple months ago, my friend Rob and I picked up a 1997 Mercury Grand
Marquis with 66k miles for $350. It had a major coolant leak and had been
neglected for a while, sitting in a cul de sac and covered in grime. We
COULD have just fixed it and sold it and turned a quick profit of a grand
or so but we did what any right-minded hooligan would do... we threw a
5-speed in it!
On the first test drive we hit the fuel cut off when the speedo hit 100 MPH
but we were only going about 30-40 due to the difference in speed sensors.
On this second test drive (but the first one where we could wind the car
out) the speed sensor was disconnected.
The 5 speed Grand Marquis Project: Stock 4.6 liter v8, TR3650-5 speed from
a 2006 Mustang GT, Fidanza
alum flywheel, 05 v6 Mustang Driveshaft with an extra 7
inches TIG welded into it, fabbed hydraulic clutch, dual Flowmaster Exhaust.
A brake pedal from a Crown Victoria and this car's brake pedal were
modified to fit next to each other and offer a natural driving position. We
installed a generic master cylinder (attached with a bracket to the brake
master) and a clutch line along the intake on the driver's side of the
engine down the wiring loom on the passenger's side in order to plumb the
slave cylinder and everything looks pretty much stock from under the hood!
The transmission tunnel had to be cut quite a bit in order to fit the
linkages and levers from the newer transmission and they intrude into the
passenger compartment. We're going to put some sound deadening down and
secure it with the rear floor air blower ducting that has been modified to
fit over the entire assembly. In the end, the carpet should install like it
was from the factory with a small hole cut for the shifter and a small boot
secured to the carpet.
With the stock 2.73 open differential this car is quite slow. That will be
rectified in the next couple of weeks when we find a 3.55 LSD and drop it
in. We'll also be getting rid of the pesky automatic shifter and button up
a few issues with sensors and interior components after it's running and
driving reliably. Oh yeah, the A/C blows cold also!

My 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
***UPDATE*** A new video, Part II is now available! Please go see it
A quick and silent tour and test drive of my recently purchased 1990
Mercury Grand Marquis LS. I'm lucky to find this car in mint condition. All
original parts except for battery. Even the tires are original. Previous
owner had multiple cars, only used the Grand Marquis for special occasions.
Needless to say it drives like a dream.
Please excuse my poor filming skills as this camera does not autofocus. So
the road is kinda blurry. Enjoy!
