Step by Step guide to installing a Mark VIII motor in a 96+ GT.
I used the factory 2000 gt fuel rails and the factory regulator, just did a bit of welding on the rails to make the crossover line work. Still a returnless style, do I just run the vacuum from the fuel rail mounted regulator straight to the intake? Not sure because I bought the car with no top end on the engine and didn't get to see how everything went together forsure
I'm using 96 mark viii injectors, other than that it's all the factory fuel system
Unless you got the car tuned put the stock 2000 gt injectors back in. The Lincoln has 24lb/hr and the GT is tuned for 19lb/hr. Therefore your motor is drowning in fuel.

Great write up. You summarized most of the answers I was looking for.
I am looking at a 93 Mark VIII Teksid engine with the old style intake and 128K miles.
1) Does the IMRC work with vacuum controls, and if so, does it work automatically without the ECC intervention?
2) Will the throttle body type and location be compatible with a 98 GT?
