T56 Mark VIII Burnout
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.
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
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.
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Saleen Rims
My 1998 Lincloln Mark VIII in Midnight Grey with Black interior some minor
upgrades like 2.5" mandrel bent Exhaust from catback, 3rd cat and the resonator
were removed and x-pipe was installed instead, Converted to true dual Exhaust like the LSC models, got rid of
factory mufflers and swapped them out for stainless steel Magnaflow
mufflers but factory tips were still kept. Also put some chrome 18x9"
Saleen Speedstar rims of course for the mark VIII lug pattern, brake
calipers were painted metallic deep red, factory air suspension was taken
out and lowering springs were installed.
