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. http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/showthread.php?t=42658
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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1ITyo5ck3U
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.
12 sec Mark VIII outside and in
A pair of 12.5 second passes in my Mark VIII, one from outside the car, one from inside. The blue light you see on the dash indicates the water/meth system is active, the red light indicates the Nitrous system is active. Both go green when in use. The greenish rectangle with numbers in it near the bottom of the console is the air/fuel meter. For a brief second you can see the remote that I use to control all of this, NO extra switches in my Mark VIII!
Lincoln Mark VIII Burnout
My tires need replacing, so we decided to roast the rest of them off. No bleach or water was used. More to come later...this was our first try, focus/quality/time of day isnt that good. Sound helps, on the first clip you cant tell if the tire is still spinning because its not smoking for some reason, but you can hear it catch traction and then break lose again when I hit 2nd. First one was only one wheel, I don't have posi yet. Thanks for watching.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC Start Up & Rev With Exhaust View - 103K
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
This has a Intech 4.6L 32 Valve DOHC V8 making 290 HP while paired to a 4 Speed Auto. It's essentially a Cobra V8 & also the same engine from my 2002 Continental only in my car it's detuned & in FWD.
This model began in 1993 until the Final year made in 1998. The Mark is known to be the first Production Vehicle to offer HID ( High Intensity Discharge ) Headlamps.
The Marks biggest issue was with the 4 wheel Air Ride suspension which was prone to early failure & it is a costly repair. Many owners resorted to Coil Spring conversion but it really killed the Marks Smooth ride.
