1995 Ford Thunderbird LX 4.6 OHC V8 from North America
A 4.6 V-8 engine... what more could you want
So far the only thing which stands out is that anywhere between 40-50 miles per hour, the car starts to shake, but if you go 1 mile per hour faster it comes out of it.
I am a sixteen year old boy. I love to race this car. I recently beat a 5.0 Mustang GT. I sadly recently lost to a Dodge Viper RT/10 (who wouldn't). I've put racing seats and pedals on my car to make it a little eater looking, but overall its tight as all hell. To my knowledge the car has 330 hp out of the factory, but due to minor altifications I ave gotten it's hp to 428. This car handel's like a dream. It drives fast (my max was about... 150 I believe) and can turn on a dime. It's perfect for going to the movies, or for racing against poor unsuspecting souls. Overall this has got to be one of the best cars on the road, plus you don't see as many of these as you do Mustangs so i'ts like a one-of-a-kind.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Not even close to 330 hp. More like 220hp. 150mph?? My Mark VIII wouldn't do that and it had 280hp.

Sorry little guy the 1995 t-bird 4.6 V8 only comes with 205hp the 3.8 has 140-145 and the 3.8 super coupe has 255hp.

Boy, you are waaayyy off the mark here... sorry to burst your delusional bubble! I own a 95 4.6L T-Bird and have done pretty extensive mods to the motor (chip, cat-back system, smaller pulleys, injectors, etc.) and am now pulling about 260 horses... (stock it is 205 h.p)...
I can hang in with a new Mustang G.T. but have been beaten by a couple Z-28's, and as for your top speed, it is limited to 105 mph stock... I have a chip that gets rid of the limiter and topped out (drag limited) at approximately 132 mph... am thinking of adding a Vortech supercharger and getting about 360 hp... that's about all you can muster from this setup...

Just curious, but does anyone know how to get rid of the limiter? I put a 456 gear in it and well it sux when your car says you're going 105 when you're only going 70. So if anyone can help e-mail me at email@example.com if ya remember title with something about the car. Thanks guys I appreciate it.

Yeah, I don't know what he is talking about, but can anyone help me out? I have a 95 Mark 8 4.6l DOHC. OK, what can I do to make this thing faster than what it is? I have beat 05 Mustang GT's in this thing, and bull crap imports without having to floor it. It has a stock motor, but I don't know about the trans; I think it's stock.
OK, how can I get some speed, without the use of a terminator supercharger from a 03 Cobra and intercooler I have, but I want my motor to have the kind of power that will put fire thru the exhaust without spark plugs. I don't care how much it costs from cheap crap (for now) to expensive go fast goodies.
OK, I was thinking about some: cams, exhaust, headers and or pulley kits. Help me out, I gotta an upcoming race against a modified 94 Caprice Lt1 Vortech supercharged this summer 2011. Reach me at Dibbity2000@yahoo.com
