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 watch! 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.

Lincoln Mark VIII Movie.avi
This is a short movie about my two Lincoln Mark VIII's. The red one is a 1996 base model and the white one is a 1997 LSC. The '96 is mine and the '97 is my wife's. They're both awesome. There's nothing like having "His n' Hers" Lincoln Mark VIII's. These are wonderful cars. They're sleek, beautiful, fast, luxurious, and just plain awesome. The Lincoln Mark VIII was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the outgoing Lincoln Mark VII. The VIII was a vast improvement over the VII that it replaced. The ancient 225hp 5.0L pushrod V-8 was replaced with a modern all aluminum DOHC 4.6L V-8 producing 280hp. Late in '95, the LSC returned with true dual Exhaust and 290hp from the 4.6L V-8. The VIII also replaced the VII's McPherson strut front suspension with a proper upper and lower control arm design with integrated air spring/shock absorber units. The old 4-link live axle out back was also upgraded to a fully independent setup with upper lateral links, lower H-arms, air springs and shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake system was also upgraded with larger rotors and better electronics. The VIII was also a much larger car than the VII giving it more interior and trunk space than the outgoing car. About the only caryover was the transmission. The VIII's tranny was essentially the same as the one used in the VII. Other than that, the VIII was a completely new car from the ground up.

An example of a normal day with a fastbag conversion system. I raise the car with the alarm button, drive off and return. As I arrive, I drop the car back down to the ground. I then get out and do it all over again from my transmitter while I grab a closer angle.

Lincoln Mark VIII Test Drive
I should have tightened the camera to the tripod better as its rattling and very annoying. Somewhere from the camera, editing to youtube the 1080p widescreen was ruined so ill redo asap. This is a 93 lincoln mark 8 with 4.6 dohc, stock Exhaust. I opened up the intake tube and mcguivered a cold air intake. It still has snow tires on so there a little noisy, they are 215 60r16s so first gear only goes to 95kph; with 225's it goes to 102kmh. All of the accelerations are a roll into the full acceleration, i dont want to wear the winters too much. I did the hid conversion as you can see in the first 15 seconds of the movie, they are morimoto mini h1's. I had to make a thermoforming machine to create the clear lenses as the originals were fluted. It has coil over suspension instead of the air ride, no big difference really. Im going to redo the suspension in summer so im not being careful in the backroads. It currently has 215000km on the body but only 50,000km on engine and transmission.

1993 Lincoln Mark VIII fast bags bagged
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
