    The ultimate Lincoln LS engine swap: 4.6 DOHC, supercharger, widebody!
    2011-07-18


    swap_LincolnLS_46turbo-thumb.jpg We’ve been writing about the Lincoln LS and admiring it since it first came out in 2000 (and we’re an owner of a pristine 16k 2006). As we’ve said before in our Lincoln LS website section, and our Lincoln LS blog, this was a terrific piece of platform engineering by Ford and Jaguar code-named “DEW-98”. Highly aluminum intensive, weight saving measures all around, and designed from the start to underpin a variety of products ranging from a state-of-the-art future Mustang all the way up to a svelte and sophisticated Lincoln Continental. Unfortunately it only ended up being used for the Lincoln LS, a new Thunderbird, and the Jaguar S Type. It was dropped for a future Mustang and for other planned uses.

    What went wrong? Frankly, Ford Motor Company as a whole blew it here: the dealers didn’t know how to sell the LS, the quality (like all Ford products of that age) was poor, Little Billy Ford sliced and diced it’s planned enhancements (and anything else Jacques Nasser put in place), and in the end it failed. And, BTW, the LS is also exactly what Lincoln needs right now. Not another the overweight “purposeless” car like some current Lincolns have become, but a lithe sports sedan just slightly larger than the Cadillac ATS.

    But like a lot of great Fords, the Lincoln LS has a second and extended life with enthusiasts. Some of us are more or less “normal”, and some others are not. Below, behold a most definite “not”. This is certainly the only Lincoln LS with a blown 4.6 liter DOHC “modular” engine. 745whp at 19psi. And that’s one big monster honking supercharger. And it’s topped off with a custom widebody!

    We wish full details were available… search for “DSR Motorsports” for what little is on the web. Then look under the hood and admire what you see. It’s the pure definition of “Hot Rod Lincoln”.

      That is a badass car for sure! Wish they would have done more with it when it was in production. More support and marketed more appropriately. Another one of my favorites from Lincoln for sure!!

      Yeah... I've seen that before. IIRC... that belongs/belonged to someone who is or was a member of this forum.

      I always wanted to do an NA 3 valve 350-400hp 4.6 . Now with over 220k on the clock... the rocker panels are rotting out, along with some rear fender rot. So now just a daily driver to be maintained until a major failure. :(
