stock bags, drilled and tapped with 1/2" fittings. 1/2" valves with fill and dump speed controls, still need to adjust the back, it moves too fast for my taste. There is one (for now) Viair 380 compressor, a 5 gallon tank against the back of the trunk and a 3 gallon tank in the spare tire area. I put 'fast bags' in the title as it moves a lot quicker than the factory system.
the clicking is me hitting the buttons on the remote.
.. I've since sold the car, after I put it on tbird springs
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.
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
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.

Lincoln Mark VIII Fast Bag Setup
"SET-UP: 6 valves - 4 SMCs for fill and two small Snap Tite (3/32" orifice)
valves for dump.
The front and rear were set up to raise for one second each. The rear goes
way too high if not slowed down. The front goes too high as well. The car
was also timed to dump for six seconds. The second portion of this video
shows the whole car raising off a one-second pulse. The rear still was a
bit fast and goes a little high. I installed a ball vavlve on each bag to
slow it down. Dump was set for three seconds."
Found this somewhere, this isn't my car!

1996 Lincoln Mark VIII Seafoam Treatment
I seafoamed my 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII today. I haven't done it in a while
and it shows. There was a lot of smoke this time. The white '97 Mark VIII
LSC next to it is much cleaner. The last time I seafoamed it, there was
very little smoke. According to the descriptions on the can, Seafoam is
supposed to break up carbon deposits and clean the induction system,
valves, tops of pistons, etc. It is also supposed to get rid of the rotten
egg smell associated with clogged catalytic converters. Fortunately, my
cats are still in pretty good shape. I don't know if Seafoam really works,
but I know my engine runs smoother after a treatment. And it sure is fun to
Note: Eventually, I'm going to make a more detailed step-by-step video with
someone else holding the camera. This was obviously done very quickly. Next
time, I plan to use 3 bottles. One for the crankcase, one for the intake,
and one for the gas tank. Now, you've got to remember to change your oil
IMMEDIATELY after seafoaming your crankcase. Or else the stuff will destroy
your seals and gaskets. Running it through the oil is like high performance
Motor Flush. It cleans the crap outta your engine block.
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.
