519 RWHP Turbo Lincoln Mark VIII Dyno Run
This is my buddy's turbo-charged 4.6L DOHC 32V 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII getting tuned and pulling a good run on the Dyno producing 518.6 HP at the wheels and 555.8 ft lbs of torque! The car was looking rough at the time the video was taken but it continues as a work in progress. It's much better looking now.
Lincoln Mark VIII Movie.avi
This is a short movie about my two Lincoln Mark VIII's. The red one is a 1996 base model and the white one is a 1997 LSC. The '96 is mine and the '97 is my wife's. They're both awesome. There's nothing like having "His n' Hers" Lincoln Mark VIII's. These are wonderful cars. They're sleek, beautiful, fast, luxurious, and just plain awesome. The Lincoln Mark VIII was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the outgoing Lincoln Mark VII. The VIII was a vast improvement over the VII that it replaced. The ancient 225hp 5.0L pushrod V-8 was replaced with a modern all aluminum DOHC 4.6L V-8 producing 280hp. Late in '95, the LSC returned with true dual Exhaust and 290hp from the 4.6L V-8. The VIII also replaced the VII's McPherson strut front suspension with a proper upper and lower control arm design with integrated air spring/shock absorber units. The old 4-link live axle out back was also upgraded to a fully independent setup with upper lateral links, lower H-arms, air springs and shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake system was also upgraded with larger rotors and better electronics. The VIII was also a much larger car than the VII giving it more interior and trunk space than the outgoing car. About the only caryover was the transmission. The VIII's tranny was essentially the same as the one used in the VII. Other than that, the VIII was a completely new car from the ground up.
1997 Mark VIII LSC Cherry Bomb Dual Exhaust
This is my wife's 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC with new Cherry Bomb dual Exhaust. It has had the 3rd cat removed and replaced with an H-Pipe and a pair of Cherry Bomb glasspack mufflers in place of the originals. I think it sounds quite menacing. And so does everyone who has heard it. And my wife loves it!
