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.

The Lincoln Mark VIII is a large, rear-wheel drive grand touring luxury
coupe built from 1993 to 1998. It was the successor of the Mark VII. The
Mark VIII was built at Ford's Wixom, Michigan assembly plant and was based
on the FN10 platform, a relative of the MN12 platform which underpinned the
1989-1997 Ford Thunderbird and Mercury Cougar.
The Mark VIII was a larger car than its predecessor, the Mark VII, being
about five inches longer at 207.3 inches and nearly four inches wider at
74.8 inches. The car also had a wheelbase of 113.0 inches (2,870 mm), over
four inches (102 mm) longer than the Mark VII's, which afforded greater
interior space and ride quality. In spite of its larger overall size, the
Mark VIII's base curb weight was slightly lighter than the Mark VII at a
little over 3,750 lb (1,700 kg).
Like the Mark VII, the Mark VIII featured a unibody construction with a
high-strength roof capable of withstanding 5000 lbs of pressure,
heavy-gauge steel door beams to protect against side impacts, front and
rear crumple zones, dual front-side airbags and four wheel anti-lock disc
brakes. Like the similar Thunderbird and Cougar, the Mark VIII featured a
short-long arm (SLA) four-wheel independent suspension with front and rear
stabilizer bars and a standard computer-controlled air suspension with
sensors to automatically lower the ride height at high speed, enhancing the
car's aerodynamic efficiency. Powering the Mark VIII was an all-new,
all-aluminum 4.6 L DOHC 32-valve V8. The engine was the first of its kind
in Ford's Modular engine family. The 4.6 L V8 produced 280 hp (210 kW) @
5500 rpm and 285 lb·ft (386 N·m) of torque @ 4500 rpm and required
premium grade 91-octane fuel for optimum performance. Handling the V8's
power was the 4R70W 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The Mark
VIII's rear axle ratio was 3.07:1. The Mark VIII also featured standard
chrome dual Exhaust tips and 16-inch
cast aluminum wheels.
The Mark VIII features a 140-mph speedometer, an electronic message center
(giving time, compass heading, fuel efficiency, engine oil life, and
various other vehicle-related warnings and information), automatic climate
control, cruise control, leather seating surfaces, six-way power driver and
passenger seats with power lumbar supports, a two position memory for the
power driver's seat, power door locks, heated power mirrors, power windows
with a driver's side express-down feature, illuminated keyless entry with
remote, automatic headlamps, an AM/FM stereo-cassette radio, and an
automatic power antenna. Options included a power moonroof, electrochromic
automatic dimming mirrors (which filtered out headlight glare from behind),
an AM/FM stereo-CD player, a 10-disc CD changer, and a JBL speaker
For 1995 the Mark VIII received a slightly updated instrument panel along
with a new radio design. Arriving midyear was a new LSC (Luxury Sport
Coupe) model: a re-tuned version of the standard 4.6 L DOHC V8, now
marketed under the name InTech regardless of model, with a true dual Exhaust and produced 290 hp (220 kW) @
5750 rpm and 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) of torque @ 4500 rpm. The Mark VIII LSC
used the same 4R70W automatic transmission as the standard Mark VIII but
featured a more aggressive rear axle ratio of 3.27:1. The brochure for the
1995 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC claims a zero to 60 mph acceleration time of 7.5
