    I was wondering if anyone is still doing MODS to these cars.The last I heard Jeremy was the man but I heard he moved on to different platforms

    All the time....but now im trying to move mine in favor of an all stock or just coil conversion rust n dent free, basically looking now for more show less go..
    though I will continue to mod my current 98lsc.
    cobra cams, exhaust,heavy duty cops ,Trac loc ,tuner,intake,power stop rotors d.s and killer sound system..i think next mod will be a 100 dry shot for this summer once I move back to milwaukee.
    98 lsc..trac loc,cobra cams,90mm mafs,exhaust,tune,accel coils,DS rotors and ceramic pads,rims and sounds too.

      That is all good but I am looking for a MARK VIII specialist to do some work on my car. I have found a lot of mechanics know little to nothing about these cars .

        I talked to Jeremy last year about doing the Jmod to my transmission.He kinda talked me outa doing it.Sounded like he wasn,t really interested.I just do most of my mods myself with the help of the mechanics at my buddies hot rod shop.(Divirsified Creations in Brighton).They work on just about anything and have some very skilled mechanics.

          what mods are you looking to make? Major ones like a manual trans?

                find mechanics who are familiar with Mustangs. They should atleast know a little bit.

                      I used to do a ton of mods and repairs for Mark VIII's...the problems were:
                      Most Mark VIII owners are weird people (I know, I'm one of them) who always want to stand there and yack your ear off or try to help.
                      Some bought total piles of qwap and brought it in to make it as nice as mine was.
                      A select few were total free-loaders who ruined it both for me and future Mark VIII owners.

                      Do what I did, and everyone else...learn to work on the car yourself. Saves money, and you might just get a sense of pride by using your brain instead of your wallet(Most are cheap-o's anyway so their wallets are about as empty as their brains).

                      All I'm saying is: either learn to do the work or expect to pay someone who can. If neither is an option, you can either buy another car or live with your current vehicle as is.

                        I'm working on getting a custom built FLUIDYNE after market radiator for a V8 MN12 ... which also happens to be compatible with Mark VIII's. I'll post more details next week once I hear back from FLUIDYNE. I'm hoping to put together a group purchase of these units. No promises but there's a chance I may be able to set something up.

                          These cars only have a few datails that are tricky like the air suspension, headers, or Gen 2 neon. The other difficult thing is that some parts are hard to find and a mechanic is just going to look on a website and say it is not available. Or they may use some cheap aftermarket part when you would be better off with a good used part. Just have ot do you homework on some of the forums.
