At ~$3000 CAD is it just better to buy an older marquis/town car from some old lady or a newer p71 ?

test drive them and figure it out for yourself. if you are doing performance stuff the p71 comes with so many changes its probably more worth it if you are atleast, only if you rip the heavy exterior cop parts (bull bar particularly, if it has one) off
>>
>>19418781
I'm more leaning towards the older marquis etc...not looking for performance really and I'm sure most p71s have been ragged from what I hear

Though they do seem to be well maintained at least

Hey dumb question but are there any lincolns or mercurys that have compatable body panels? The grille panel in my 03 crown Vic got ripped up from a dumb mechanic slamming the hood and I'm poser enough that I think itd be cool to swap to a grille that has no business being on my car. I see mercurys sometimes that look like their panels would fit but I dont know

Got it for 3400 including taxes. 2009 and only 90k miles. No damage to the interior aside from one small crack in a pillar. Plan on getting some bench seats and redoing the interior into a black and maroon color scheme. I think I did pretty good

>>19419247
You'd need to swap out the front end of the car. It could be done at a junk yard pretty cheaply.

>>19418787
ya then definitely buy a car from a retired person, no need to look at P71s besides for the potentially under-valued auction sales. If you aren't going to auctions regularly and just looking on used market P71s are usually overpriced.

P71 is weird market where from a Auction you might only spend 500-2000, but same car gets relisted for like 5k+ on autotempest etc

Literally no one gives a shit if you are driving one or thinks you a cop in 2018, the only thing anyone has ever said was I heard a little girl ask her mother if that was the same car that grandma had.

Get an MGM or Town Car. P71s are the lamest meme. If you're going to drive a barge why wouldn't you go for Maximum Comfy. These 2 cars are low maintenance and have been taken care of for the most part. Just don't expect any type of gas mileage.

Boy i am rollin
>>
>>19419480
ive actually tracked one for a about 6 hours, if you want to theorycraft about what it drives like because you don't know better and only live on the internet then be my guest, thats your own autism. They drive like a fat miata, rwd momentem car but with with a automatic, luckily atleast said auto has a pursuit mode that maintains best gear. Its not ideal but it works.

I wouldn't be debating you if everybody was born a driving genius and practice didn't matter, or debating you if S13s etc were $500 from auctions, but neither of those are true. You learn the most early on from slower vehicles with soft but balanced suspension setups. Learning how to heal-toe is easier then learning weight transfer so it doesn't really matter if you have a shitty pursuit mode


BTW never owned one, learned to drive with Miatas, MR2s and other various sport compacts, had them all on track and the P71 is actually legit, the balance and feedback it has for such a large car isn't something you find often, especially not for something that can be bought for so cheap if you look in the right places. Its a legitimate "shit car" to learn to drive fast in like any good momentum car ideally should be.
>>
>>19419566
I’ve driven one you fucking retard
I’ve done sideways tire roasting in water filled gutters
I know all about this car, I’ve worked on them (I hate working on them they are awful)
Also HOLY FUCK LMAO at you comparing it to a Miata
HOLY.
FUCK.
I own two miatas and have driven many more than just my own and I’ve driven many panther bodies as well and you are ABSOLUTELY full of shit for even trying to say this
I’m really just in awe at how retarded you are right now.

>miatas are rwd and so are panthers so they are the same
Please stop.
Please.
Btw I get praise on here nearly daily so you’re flat out wrong lol
>>
>>19419609
if you had drive them into gutters to 'hoon' them then your a shitty driver who lacks any finesse. The miata comparison is there because comparing them to a mustang, which would seem logical to a none-serious driver doesn't hold merit when at the limit both respond completely differently due to being setup fundimentally different. I made it not because of bais towards oversteer or understeer but because fundimentally both are somewhat imbalanced front heavy rwd momentum cars, P71 leaning towards understeer, miata vice versa but that isn't important with limited slip.

It is a wide analogy but if you actually are learning to drive and have some ability to get references outside of your own ego built upon posing rather then driving you'd get it. Its not meant to be taken 100% by the book, its the task the tool offers you.

Apparently cars aren't fun to you, their some form of identity you use to makeup for any other personality traits, fuckoff. Any car person worth half their salt as a driver spends little time getting this BTFO'd about 'skatepark' cars for 'wannabe cops'

>being liked on a shitposting board is an integral part of his self esteem
Holy shit you really are pathetic. Then again you're a faggot dog fucker so the bar is already pretty low.
>>
>>19419769
Main point is neither of them have peakyness, snappyness before traction loss, both are communicative but could be better (the miata gets massively over-rated in this regard desu, steering in particular is dampened as hell compared to any toyota or honda but makes up for it by being easy to master) and both teach you to drive by being slow in a straight line. Where the Miata is more likely to teach you about throttle control the P71 is more likely to teach you the very limit of threshold braking and specifically trail-braking because its front heavy nature means its baised towards understeer, but unlike a fox or a new-wedge mustang the suspension geometry is good enough it doesn't so instantly wash out

STOP

>>
>>19419815
i said why it wasn't comparable to a mustang (handling wise) and why its more akin to a miata's fat more understeer prone brother.

your talking shit just to talk shit, i didn't come in here starting myself off with 'lol panther owners are so sad xd', i genuinely don't care about the car but i've had good experiences, over 8 hours with one on a track (NOT in the pits, on the track, combined time). As i said before i'm a sport compact guy by nature, its not my type of car besides the exception they are dirt cheap, rwd, nice cars to refresh driving technique on due to their surprisingly decent handling traits at the limit.

Really depends on what you're looking for. I've currently got a p71 and prefer it's utilitarian nature to the plusher Towncar I had.

Also keep in mind the Towncar has a lot of one off parts for both body and interior, whereas the Vic and MGM have more instant interchangeability between the two.

IMO, if you can a LX or MGM with the tow package or a Sport or LSS, you've got the best of both worlds. The 2.73 rear in most LX and MGM are a fucking duds.

>>19418787
Shoot for at least an 03 with the upgraded front end. 02 and older have recirculating balls while 03+ got rack and pinion.

>>19419247
Lincoln has bespoke panels almost all throughout. Vic to MGM swap will need header panel, grille and bumpers for sure.
Hoods and fenders are identical from 03-2011. Headlights I don't recall.

Big bulky box that sends a spiral gear through a bunch of small metal balls to angle the wheels instead of the standard steering rack that directly twists. Sounds like it should be strictly worse and more complex but was generally used in large trucks and similar vehicles for its surprising durability. Gives diddley-squat in terms of steering feel.

Intake manifold is only a pain in the ass due to all the components/lines in the way and the risk of dropping coolant or something in the engine, which goes for nearly any intake mani job.

A.c. evaporator is easy as fuck. Literally a 1/10 on the difficulty scale.

>>19424573
Color matching anything but white without a paint shoo custom blending tends to be a pain in the ass. I'd just leave it be with the imperfections.

>>19427094
>>19427175
I Should mention that the "curbs at 30 mph" meme is in relation to 02 and older cvpis. The recirculating ball models are more durable against impact when maintained but wane very badly when they get worn. An abused/neglected rack/pinion car will still have much tighter and more responsive steering whereas the older models love to wane left and right, especially at speed. Depending how bad it is, they can be downright frightening to drive.

Did a light J mod on my ‘03 MGM last year. I know most of you aren’t the nerds that do this shit, but here are my thoughts:
I only drilled out the 1-2 and 2-3 holes to .095” (from .081”) since My car only has the marauder airbox and a slightly more open exhaust, so it doesn’t make the 300+hp that the .100”-.110” is spec’ed for and I do just like to cruise mostly, so I don’t need super firm shifts, just wanted to crisp them up a bit and lengthen my trans life. I also did P71 oil, Trans, and diff coolers too, since a bit of extra cooling won’t hurt.

If you actually like your Panther, do the J mod, if you don’t want to yourself, most Ford dealers do it for like $200-300 and it well worth it. Makes the shifts less mushy, makes them faster, and generates less heat on shifting so it puts less stress on the clutches and on the tranny fluid.
I also have the marauder sway bars and slightly stiffer bushings all around (still fairly soft; better ride than poly but better handling than stock). I also got nice Michelin tires and new gas-a-just struts all around and the handling and ride is vastly improved vs stock 95k suspension parts. Only things I want to do now are a good undercoating and new headlight bulbs... pretty sure mine are original and they are quite dull. I’ll probably get Daystars like I use in all my other cars.

It’s a good car and I hope to have it at least another 200k Miles.

So I just did my intake manifold yesterday. And I went from one set of code errors to another.

I busted an injector O-ring, which was fun because I didn't find out until I put everything back together. Pulled it all apart again, bought new rings, fixed it and put it all together. Car now is throwing a code for injectors 2 and 5-8. Is it possible that the rail is screwed up, or is it really that all those injectors went rotten?

I did replace all the coils and 7 of the sparkplugs, only skipped #8 because there was something blocking the bit from going on and I was pretty much done fucking with the car.
>>
>>19427502
Interdasted, what exactly is the Jmod? How much does it cost to have all the coolers installed? I'm also thinking about swapping an LSD over from a P71, but I have no idea what kind of damage to look for when I'm looking at junkyard parts.
>>
>>19430577
The J mod was originally for mustang GTs, but since we have the same tranny, it works for us too. Basically you enlarge the fluid passages in the valve body so that the clutches for the 1-2 and 2-3 shifts engage faster, resulting in faster, firmer shifts. It makes the tranny last longer because the clutches are slipping less, so there is less heat to degrade the fluid in the tranny. Coolers should only be parts+shop labor if you aren’t doing them... they aren’t too hard to do on your own if you have tools and space though.
Can’t help you on the rear diff p71 swap though. I used a remote locking diff from an explorer because snow drifting.

Anyone bought a crown vic with an open diff and spapped it to an lsd? Is it easier swap diffs or just swap the entire rear end
>>
>>19433988
It’s easier to just swap the entire rear end honestly. Unless you have the tools and knowledge to check backlash and stuff, actually fucking with the rear diff is not easy.

Just remember that most of the LSD rear ends have shorter gearing, so your gas mileage will drop.
