Thanks everyone. I decided to start a new thread because I have updated new best 4 times this year and have almost improved a whole sec. Videos of my 2 best runs Sunday 12-11-11. And one from last week were I had the pleasure of running RobertP from TCCOA on his first run in the 10's. We were just warming up the Lincoln but the video is from Trunk Monkey and it is in HD and it is the first video that captures the Mark VIII's sound. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIN7vhSlTJs and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nn4BeCgRkw and the one for sound http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5m6rbBE-1s&feature=related

Beautiful car and nice runs Don. I have a 100% stock '97 Mark VIII I use as a DD and I love the luxury look/feel of the car. I couldn't imagine the feeling of having the luxury and running mid 11's..........:D

First time to the drag strip. Vortech SC 7psi, Meth injection, Kooks, 3,800 stall, DD valve body, 4:10 w/trac-loc, 2 1/2" duals, and M/T street ET's. Since then Its got lighter tires and wheel for the front. Mounted the battery in the truck, Removed the back and passenger seats, Closed up the spark plug gap, and switch from washer fluid to 50/50 alcohol/water mix in the injection system. First time out its best was 12.59@105mph to last time out 11.66@119.81mph
