Update: Because I have been asked so many questions about it, there is a complete write up here:
Added sequential tail lights to the Mark VIII last night. Back in the day, I had a 67 Tbird and I had two friends with 69 Tbirds and I have always missed those sequential lights. In my opinion is is the way the Mark VIII should have come from the factory. It really suits the car.

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
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!
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, 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.
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.
