Question about 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII
Where is it located > Is it easily accessible
You have the same engine as a 96+ 4.6L Cobra (well 95% the same).
Are you trying to change the engine timing? You cant, its processor-controlled. There's no distributor so nothing to move there either.
To beef it up, get a new processor from someone that advertizes on the Mark VIII forums (NOT a chip kit that only works on wide-open throttle). Use AWSFA-12C Motorcraft spark plugs (they DO exist, make your dealer look up the part number), and get ACCEL coils. Nology wires if you can afford them. Get "Jerry's Mad" done to your transmission, and a high-stall converter (2700), and a cold air box, and a 160 degree thermostat. Underdrive pulleys from STEEDA (just use the crank and water pump pulley)
My car has all this and does 12.10 in the 1/4 mile with tools in the trunk and a full tank of gas!
Do the transmission mod anyways, or at LEAST change the fluid to full synthetic (MERCON 5). If you dont, it WILL burn out soon, very soon. Mine did and they arent cheap...and transmission shops dont know how to fix them.
