If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

If I had unlimited time, money, and resources...

...my build sheet would look sorta like this.

Engine: 4.6 4v swap, two .63 AR GT30 turbos with a water-to-air intercooler, forged pistons, rods, and crank.


Drivetrain: T56 transmission, 31 spline axles, traction-lok diff with carbon clutches, one piece driveshaft.

Suspension/brakes/steering: 6 piston Wilwood front calipers, dual 4 piston rear calipers, ASD hydraulic handbrake, medium metallic pads, 14" slotted front rotors, 12.5" slotted rear rotors, custom coilovers (may be able to adapt revalved Bilsteins), custom steering knuckles for greater steering angle, and a 13:1 steering box.

Exhaust: True dual 3" exhaust, side exit after the rear wheels, an X-pipe to aid flow, and two Varex 3" mufflers (essentially dual mode mufflers).

Wheels and tires: -25 offset 19x9.5 Vossen VPS-308s with a super deep concave, 255/35R19 Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2s (they slide pretty nicely).


Exterior: Respray in dark candy red over a medium gold metallic basecoat, custom overfenders to fit the rolling stock, a custom air dam up front, a BCL Cupcake Wing (functionality is debatable but it really echoes the visuals of my current spoiler while being much higher quality), a laser-cut aluminum bezel that fits perfectly in the stock header panel, except there are no grill slats or mesh, instead there is a single bracket for an emblem, like the setup on a 2003-2004 Mach 1 Mustang. All decals and whatnot will also be recreated and re-fitted.

Interior: Recaro Speed seats with inserts re-trimmed in sued that matches the factory tan interior color, a Momo Millenium Evo steering wheel (feels and looks amazingly OEM), Momo Anatomico shift knob.


Safety: Fire extinguisher, tow straps for just in case, a proper welded-in full cage with plenty of padding, five point harnesses for both front passengers.

Anyone else daydream about what their car could be?
