    Default Mark VIII Computer

    Hello everyone! I am new to the forum, but I joined to get some help with my new project. I bought a partially completed 1949 Ford Tudor Sedan last fall that came with a 454 Chev block and overdrive trans. Of course those will have to be removed, so I just bought a damaged Lincoln Mark VIII motor and trans to replace it. My question is how much of a hassle is it going to be to get the ECM installed in this car and get everything running? I see Ron Francis offers a wiring kit to use, and I was wondering if anyone out there has been down this road before? Thanks in advance!!

    good morning, I built a 54 Ford Customline w/ 5.4 DOHC, a lot of these questions might be more helpful in engine swaps. I tried using MK VIII ECM but could not get my "tweecer" chip to work on1995 eec IV or 1996 eec V, I ended up going with a 1996 t-bird ecm and load the cobra tune into it. MK VIII's have anti theft or Pats, on 1995 , have a relay input ground to disable, 1996 when to on board pats which will have to be disabled with a chip or send it off to be disabled

    Thank you very much for your reply! I'm starting to think maybe I should install the 351 Cleveland I have instead! I am currently involved in another project, but as soon as that is finished I am going to get going on my '49. Thanks again!!
