Lincoln mark viii questions

So i have had the Lincoln swap in my 97 gt for a couple months now. Completely love it. But what is next? I mean how can i start modding with good result. Has anyone here ran a kenne bell? I heard you have to swap the heads. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Did you get it dyno tuned? I've been thinking about this swap.

No i havent. I need too. But its been a great swap. It was kind of a pain in the butt, but it turned out sweet. A lot more power. But im trying to figure out a supercharger situation. Or just run nitrous.

So it runs on the gt tune? Are you running the gt or mark injectors/Maf?

Yeah gt tune. And the Lincoln 24 lb injectors. Your computer will still run 19 lb injector fuel but when you get a tune you will get the full effect of the 24 lb ones. But it runs good.

I honestly dont know about the MAF. And the Lincoln motor is a 4v duel overhead cam. About 260-270 stock motor. Its more expensive to build than a 2v but way better performance wise.

Yeah its just tough to mod. You have to get lincoln engine parts (obviously), and there hard to find and expensive. But im going supercharger or nitrous on the near future. I just want about 350-400 to the wheels. Its my DD.

Umm u could of just put a blower on ur 2v and had 370-400 whp.... I believe if u add a blower to ur 4v ull be over the safe hp for ur stock block as even the mark 8 teksid blocks( on stock internals) only handle 450 whp (on barrowed time) but the block itself can handle 1000-1500? But the rods/pistons are of the same as any other modular, a cheap fix is get u some termi takeout pistons/rods have them checked/cleaned by a machine shop and throw in there then u can handle a bit more ( the rods are safe to 700 hp not sure about the pistons) then ur 400-450 whp DD is reliable with a good tune

I keep thinking about picking up a mark viii engine then I see threads like this

Got car dynoed today, important info for anyone doing a 4v swap - MustangForums.com

My problem is the dyno tune is out of the question. At least for quite a while. There's no one local who has a dyno, so I'd be running the gt tune or mail order. Has anyone else swapped to a 4v and had a base dyno run before tuning?

I dont have mine tuned yet. But i can tell it runs 10x better. A lot better throttle response. And just spins the tires like it never would before.

I may end up doing this. I have pi heads right now but I kinda don't even feel like wasting my time and money installing them.

The mark heads flow better than the cobra heads. Dont swap them. I also thi k they are b heads not c. If you want a blower get a procharger so the intake stuff is not a concern. Or add a turbo or two.
You need a forged rotating assembly for sure. Block with some work can handle 2000+hp as can the heads. Cams can be degreed and raise power higher in the rpms.
Once you forged the shortblock power is what ever you want it to be to a point. Stock cobra cranks are forged the marks are cast and not very strong. Termi rods suck donkey balls but better than stock as they are h beam but have inferior cap bolts.
