M90 Supercharger

Is a M90 supercharger the proper size for a 32 valve 4.6?

The reason I am asking is there is a 93 Mark 8 with one, asking price, $29,900.

Racingjunk.com

1993 Lincoln Mark VIII

I'm just wondering.

Geno's been trying to sell that thing for years! In short, no, the M90 is too small for that motor. It will work, but it is not ideal. Also I wouldn't buy that car with the intention of driving it. Between multiple ECM's, 2 MAF's, 16 injectors, and all the custom stuff done almost 25 years ago, I wouldn't expect it to be too reliable, and for that money; you could build a faster and more reliable MarkVIII.

-91 Cougar LS, coming soon, complete overhaul with a 427" Windsor.
-90 XR7 5-speed black on black w/sunroof, MP2, coated rotors, double intercooler, 15%OD, ported heads, comp stage 1 cam, 85mm TB, 90MM LMAF, 80# injectors, and ported big valve heads
-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater
-97 Tbird Sport 4.6 Nice weather daily driver

You do have to give that car credit for being one of the most famous FN10/MN12 cars out there. The only other big name cars on our platforms I can think of would be the 1998 SVT Bird and the AWD supercoupe car. And this is the only car that is living and driving. I think it cool that it is still around.

1995 T-Bird.
PI 4.6. Bullitt intake. Stage 2 MHS cams. Kooks Headers. 4,200 ATF Speed converter. BCA Transmission. 4:10s. Tune by Supercoupes Unlimited. 245 RWHP.
3,700 lbs at half tank. Goal- 3,400 lbs
Best of 13.85 at 96 mph. Goal- 11's NA

Wow, that generous praise for that car ... Personally, of the FN10's and MN12's still living and running I think the Silver Slut and Driller's FN10's (He has two that both kick ass) are more famous.

Of the Cougars, I've got to give props - in no particular order - to Ian (Black Cat), Rick (r429460) and Steve (1MTNCAT) for their cars.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

I think he meant it is one of only a few examples of a specialty/prototype version of our platform actually built/endorsed/funded by Ford. He is correct that this car is a piece of MN12/FN10 history, and I do give it credit for that, and if I had more money than I knew what to do with, I might buy it, but if I were going to spend $30K on an MN12, I could buy or build something much nicer and/or faster. For that money, I'd rather have that supercharged 6-speed red collectors edition Mark that was recently posted, or a short wheelbase SC, or Neibert's black 347 turbo car that he recently sold.

Ah, I wasn't aware that the OP car was an example of "a specialty/prototype version of our platform actually built/endorsed/funded by Ford."

That build description reads like a maintenance nightmare!

MadMikey had me right. I didn't mean to put down any of the great cars that have been built over the years. I was just appreciating a car that was built in the early days of our platform that really pushed the limits of technology and brought great attention to the cars that we appreciate.

The M90 is small for the 3.8L V6. That said, that car belongs in a museum.

Agreed. That's kind of the hilarious thing with most of the Barrett-Jackson cars as well (the ones that are going for insane money), they're not really usable cars any longer due to their replacement cost, and a lot of these cars are getting incredibly-detailed and waaaay-overdone restorations which preclude that they stay parked in a climate-controlled warehouse or garage.

This Lincoln is exactly the same thing, in that it really needs to be parked in a museum somewhere, it's pretty much useless as a usable car, or even a casual weekend cruiser.

Yes, I hate my Lincoln. Ask me about it sometime.
