    3.0l twin turbo performance?

    Anyone heard anything about any performance parts for the new 3.0 TT? Being Lincoln specific for the time being, it's not getting any aftermarket love for what I have seen

    My new 2017 Lincoln MKZ!

    Nice rides. Just traded in our 13 MKZ 2.0 for a 17 MKZ with the 3.0 twin turbo AWD. It's a beast! And for the record, I prefer the double wing grill over the new one.

    You decided to keep it!?! Man I can't believe all the little things that are giving out.

Love to see the old...

    For Sale WTB: MKZ Wheels

    Looking for a set of MKZ wheels for a 2013. Really looking for something in black PVD but willing to look at anything. Also, I have a set of stock 98 Mark VIII wheels that are nearly flawless if anyone is interested. I took them off my 98 when I did the 5x4.5 conversion and boxed them up...

    For Sale 1998 Midnight Grey Mark VIII in Southern Louisiana

    As the previous owner, I can verify everything he said. I bought the car in 2006 from a friend of mine. It had about 68k miles when I got it, and when I sold it Southern Gemini it had about 117000 on the clock if memory serves. So you can see that in the 7 years I owned it I barely did 35000...

    Steering Wheel Position and Suspension Work Issue

    Andy it wasn't really so much the excess travel as it was that the pay didn't make it worth it. I really enjoyed the job, as I had plenty of time to myself and most times it was amusing to watch people's stupid daily habits. But then I got to realizing that it simply wasn't making ANY...

    Rear Ride Height adjusted up 2.5 inches

    Glad to hear it man. One of my favorite sounds was on cold winter mornings when I would use the remote start so it would be warm when I left for work, I didn't have to go look and see if it was running cause I could hear it from my bedroom on the other side of the house. Sorry to hear the...

    For Sale WTB: 1998 CE Silver Ingot set

    Here's the under 200 mark sale from ebay. And silver dropped again today, further reducing value. There are those who are purist and think they should always remain with the car, and those who don't care about the ingots. I love the Mark VIII and would love to get my hands on a set of those...

    When did 8's change over to OBD2?

    As answered above, ALL 1996 cars had to be OBDII per Federal law. There were some 1995 Mercedes vehicles that had OBDII prior to the requirement.

    Rear Ride Height adjusted up 2.5 inches

    I love resurrecting old dead threads. The reason for resurrection??? When I built this car, the Cobra R wasn't very common and there was nothing like it anywhere around my area. (I saw some pictures of a member in the Kennesaw area with Bullit rims that look a lot like it) Then in the years...

    Steering Wheel Position and Suspension Work Issue

    I realize this is extraordinarily late, however to answer the questions of the history on those parts.....if memory serves, upper and lower ball joints, outer tie rods and strut rod bushings had all been replaced in March of 2012. From your video, I'd say there was definite premature failure in...
