Chevy vs. Ford Cop-Car Thrash Battle! Roadkill Episode 12
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan are out to discover
which used cop car they like best, the Chevy Caprice 9C1 or the Ford Crown
Victoria Police Interceptor P71. Of course you expect nothing but the most
professional, scientific analysis from these guys, and that includes a day
doing donuts and bashing into stuff on pavement, tire explosions, a road
trip to the desert, camping, thrashing on dirt roads, and a finale that
just might create a new form of low-buck off-road motorsport.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

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!

2004 Crown Victoria 1/4 mile run
Here's my 2004 Ford Crown Victoria. Current mods include: aluminum
driveshaft, 3.73 gears, full posi differential, Mercury Marauder airbox,
80mm MAF, '04 PI zip tube, ported and polished intake plenum and throttle
body, 91 octane tune. This is my 4th best run so far after a 15.07, 15.09,
My 2004 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor transformation into a Marauder clone.
My 2004 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor transformation into a Marauder
clone. Bought from Texas Department of Public Safety in January 2008. The
front clip was not changed out to the Marauder as these parts are very
expensive. The header is about $250, front bumper is $400, headlights $100
and grille about $125. Then the rear bumper is $500 from the dealer to
complete the whole look. Even junk yards wanted near retail for body parts.
So I just added the Marauder corners and smoked headlights. Cheaper and
still looks good and the average person has no clue the differences.
