Sweet pics, gonna be a helluva car. I didn't know the N/A 32V v8 mod motor was so widely used by ford. If its takin up too much room in the garage, ill take if off your hands.

MkVIII was the first w/32v Duratec. 1992?
That's how I snagged my lady. She owned a '93 MkVIII, I just bought a brand new 1996 4V Cobra.

The rest is history...

I think I have found my dreamcar. Post up as you go, brother. I'd love to get my hands on a clean MarkVIII and blown 4V motor :)

the mark was the first car with the DOHC 4V, first with the 4R70W, first Modular motor with a factory blower (test mule for what is now known as the 03 cobra motor), first domestic car with HID's, first domestic with active supension, etc. etc. etc.

hey phreakness what will you be doing for a computer, you cant use the cobra one cuz it dosent have the tune to run an auto correct? and the mark comp cant run the boosted motor to full potental right? sick idea though my dad and i should have gone with a cobra motor when we put the mark 8 motor in his 93 crown vic! but it runs ok for a big a- car
