    Looks like a stock HO upper with a Cobra plate on it. Also appears to be an 87, which is the 200 hp HO. They were running E6 heads until 1988 on the Mark VII.

    Conversion van with a 3 on the tree? Thats an odd beast. Thats pretty late for that setup. Didn't see a whole lot of column shift after the 70s.

    If they're not ported and such to flow better, its very much a "meh" upgrade. Lot of work for not a lot of results. Explorer heads are about the best factory head around, but as with all things...

    +1, use the existing wire chase. There is usually a grommet somewhere you can poke a hole in to add a wire, the rest of the run will just lay right in the factory chase. You may need to remove the...

    yeah, vacuum into the valve, then vacuum out of the valve to the servo. There is also a check valve, but I forget which side that is on. Those valves leak pretty often and the typical fix is to plug...

    The ECM doesn't actually use the caps for memory purposes, it has a constant +12v feed from the battery for that job. To my knowledge, the caps are mostly used as internal power supply filters after...

    hm, that one seems to have the standard LSC turbines rather than the BBS wheels.

    Honestly if those aren't GTC center caps, I haven't got a clue what they are from. Unless perhaps the style...

    yeah, basically that. Related to that, the late ones need a VSS input, the early ones do not. No VSS input on a late ECM makes the EGR valve open at stupid times and you'll get a nasty off-idle...

    It was one of the various not terribly successful ventures Lincoln embarked on in the mid 80s. I sort of wonder if anyone bought a GTC diesel. That would be hilarious. The Mark VII sold fairly...

    The GTC did get a BBS wheel and blacked-out chrome before the LSC SE existed. There was also a rather rare "Stage II" version that got some engine upgrades, but the standard GTC was basically...

    F0 1990
    L in 1989 at least was Mark VII
    C is "chassis"

    Not totally certain, but wild guess says this is from a Mark VII GTC.

    If it doesn't engage OD until 50, the pressure is not too low. When its going in under 35, thats too low. I would seriously recommend not touching that adjustment since it will likely void the...

    Honestly there are not miracles to be had with headers. You'd get more from stock dual exhaust than putting headers on the single exhaust.
