Crown Vic GT 5.0's With Thrush 2-Chambers (Speed Density vs Mass Air)
As of today September 6th 7:52 pm EST 2011 both Crown Vics are Mass Air
cars equipped with A9P computers. This video was shot earlier in the day
before I converted my homeboys Vic to Mass Air. You can hear the
differences in idle quality between Speed Density and Mass Air cars if you
know cars. I built both cars along with many other Box Panthers and I have
successfully converted each and every one of them to Mustang .H.O engine specs or plus
with GT40 or GT40P heads and Explorer intakes running either Speed Density
or Mass Air Mustang
1992 Grand Marquis w/loud exhaust
Heading home from auto body class at college for the day, I decided to try
out my new camera and get a bit throttle happy... I promise to get a good
burnout vid on my profile soon! My merc is stock except for the Exhaust which is just a police car H-pipe that
drops off below the rear seat. She is my daily driver with 203,000 miles
on her, and she starts up right away every morning, even on the days when
it gets to be 20 below.
1985 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe 5.0 HO swap Vs. 1992 Toyota MR2 Turbo (exhaust challenge)

1994 Mercury Grand Marquis in depth tour
This is my new Car that I bought last March; a 1994 Mercury Grand Marquis
LS with leather trimmed seats, V8 power with dual Exhaust, digital dashboard and what's more.
The video includes a detailed walkaround of the car in the state in which I
I only got time now to finally edit the video footage I took in March. I'll
try to post an update of the car soon since I did some work on the car.
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!
