I would have expected the Mustang to win this one as it weights a bit less than the Mark. Still a VERY VERY close race.
hmmm, I had a Kbell positive displacement blower on mk 7 and I would have thought it would have made a bigger difference, but perhaps since both engines were wound up, maybe not.  positive displacement blower feels like a bigger engine as you have boost at idle, vane blower feels like giant cam....  maybe driveability better with 2 screw blower, but just not max performance.  thoughts? 
Damnn that filter on the GT is gigantic. Where did you get it?
@paulmasson411 Thats the most rediculous shit I ever heard. If you watch closly, the mustang screwed up and granny shifted. Even if he had his stuff together it would have been a close race. Do you honestly think you are going to get .5 second or even a tenth out of relocating the inlet? With this car going as fast as it is already?
@paulmasson411 Research? What are you talking about... Im not trying to beat my chest, but I have been around, and around, even with imports. Not that I own any imports!! Anyway, even if the guy managed to get 20hp or so out of it, it wouldn't have made a difference. If he banged when he shifted, he would have been a solid winner.
@MrHotrodlincoln Yeah, thats what they both went over the scales at. Didn't really add anything other than a sub in my gold car. I just figured thats what they all weighed. Could hit it a little harder off the line if I could drop about 500lbs. Factory axles start breaking around 1.55 sec/60ft. That really beats you up when you have to make it up on the top end, good luck then since horse power doesnt go as far with a heavy car!

@windstarpro I anticipate 1.7- 1.8s to be the best I'll see in the naturally aspirated condition it is in now. I know what you're saying. Weight is HUGE. 100# is a tenth and at the track, a tenth is huge.
Nice cars i love them 4v's What exhaust is on the Mark VIII?

woah!!! wicked close race dudes, thumbs up if you agree. I love this because I consider both engine/boost combinations for my Tbird project. 
4v kick ass. we used to have a 93 Mark VIII that had 197k miles on it and still ran great. my dad even lit up the tires at a stop light in the center of town. lol the only problem with the lincoln is weight, they are like 4,000+ pound cars.
