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
Grand Marquis on a racetrack!
"So, just how well DOES a 4-passenger Mercury Grand Marquis handle?" you
ask. Well, have a look at this video from Barber Motorsports Park and see
for yourself! Some commentary provided by my friend Kellie... :-)
V8 Aerostar ( 5.0 HO )
Ford should have made a V8 Aerostar. I got 5 mpg better than the 2.8L V6
5-spd, it sounds better, and its more fun to drive (power). Sitting 1 ½
inches lower with large swaybars made it handle like a car. I've had A LOT
of fun with this van, now it's time for a change. If you ever get a chance
to be part of the Hot Rod Power Tour I highly recommend it. It doesnt
matter if you do the long haul or just one venue, you wont regret it or

78 Mercury Grand Marquis 312,000 Miles Near Mint 1 Owner 6.6L 400 Big Block
Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.

and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the
engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
The History of the Mercury Grand Marquis

1995 Ford Crown Victoria Cooling System Flush
This video shows you how to drain and flush the coolant on the 4.6L Crown
Victoria, Mercury Marquis, and Lincoln Town car. Most people don't flush
their coolant regularly which can lead to expensive repairs such as leaking
radiators, bad water pumps, leaking heater cores, leaking freeze plugs, and
worst yet, bad head gaskets. These can all be avoided by regular cooling
system draining and flushing.
Even though manufactures now use Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT) or
Organic Acid Technology (OAT) long life coolant which they claim never
needs changing, it's always a good idea to drain and flush this coolant
anyway to remove any debris and refresh the anti-corrosion additives. It's
not hard to do and is cheap insurance against expensive repairs.
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of
Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD
Rear Wheel Drive
City/Highway MPG: 15/23
This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show
how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that
may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for
repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better
idea of how it feels on the road.
I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is
comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think
that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The
torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once
you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8
has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted
and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a
handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift
into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a
light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in
everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due
to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low.
The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with
reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency,
although the front end dives toward the ground.
The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped
with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In
hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty
of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but
it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway).
Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old
folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car
around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat.
Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives
you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway,
where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy
back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and
down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many
people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal.
The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a
couple of hours.
Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to
be a car I would consider buying used.
