Stan Johnson owner of FPA has a mid length header that fit the full size Lincolns.

They easily run with the hooker super comps to about 630 hp.

I have them on my personal LTD running 460 hp at the wheels and 570 crank.

the exhausts look interesting, but I can't see the price anywhere. I don't know if they would fit in there, there is not much space and I haven't seen the right ones on any Continental.

As mentioned above by Scotty J FPA headers fit like a glove, I got the ceramic coated. They are on the expensive side but are well made and just plain work. Car is a 1970 Lincoln Mark III 545 c.i. AFR heads, Holley fuel injection. I have the car lowered with custom exhaust, no low clearance issues that long tubes have.

As of last week when I spoke with Stan the cost is $795 non coated and $1095 coated. Get them coated !!!

Jak uvedl výše Scotty J FPA hlavičky padly jako ulité, dostal jsem keramický povlak. Jsou na drahé straně, ale jsou dobře vyrobené a prostě fungují. Auto je Lincoln Mark III 545 ci AFR z roku 1970, vstřikování paliva Holley. Mám auto snížené s vlastním výfukem, žádné problémy s nízkou světlostí, které mají dlouhé trubky.

Look good, i just think my Lincoln Continental 4 th gen has little space around thé exhaust pipes.

Hi,
Does anyone have any advice about the engine? I have a split engine, and I would like to increase its performance a bit. I will have to put a new cam, so I thought about putting a cam for the Hydraulic roller tappet and edelbrock heads. I'll think about what to do with the Rotating Assembly. Stroker or just change the pistons due to grinding. Do you know where I can find the information on how much is the original piston volume cc? they only sell pistons for the years 72 and younger, and they seem to me to have a larger chamber, which would reduce the compression ratio, and I don't want that, because I drive on 98 octane gasoline. With the rotating assembly, it is important to consider which kit can be used on my 385 engine from 1968 where the deck heights are 10,300, in addition, there should probably be a corresponding cam and exhaust pipes, which are not available on the Lincoln from 68. I have a lot of questions :)

Where are you located?

The original high compression pistons which you have are 11 cc dished with a 1.760" compression height. It appears that your pistons are original but I can't tell from your pic. How deep is the dish?

Premium pump gasoline in this heavy application is good for about 10 to 1 static c/r or a bit less depending on cam specs, convertor and gearing.

We have a specific engine combination we build for cars like this.

Hi,
i am from Europe. I have the first 460 that went to Lincoln. My compression ratio is 10.5:1 and I calculated that it would be around 12 cc per piston, the head is 75.8 cc. I am looking at similar pistons that are made now with 22 cc, which would reduce the compression ratio to 9.6:1 and I don't want that. I thought about
Eagle 15101 BB Ford 501/514 Street and Strip Rotating Assembly 9.6 Mahle Dish Pistons
and edelbrock heads with 75 cc, but I don't know which cam.

With the cam timing appropriate for a 5000 pound plus car and optimal ignition timing 10.5 to 1 static c/r is too high for 98 motor octane and iron heads.

now I drove with the original engine, I just replaced the intake with an edelbrock 2166, electric water pump, el. fans, new radiator and edelbrock 750 cfm carburetor. i drove with 98 octane gas and never had a problem, nothing knocked. I don't think that with a compression ratio of 10.5:1 you can't drive 98. what exactly should be wrong with it? spark plugs had a good color, vacuums and pressures all fine. 🤔 I was satisfied with the engine, only the cam was worn out and so was the crankshaft. and now I would like to build the engine with the rotating assembly that I sent in the link, edelbrock 75 cc aluminum heads, the compression ratio would remain the same 10.5:1 and I am thinking about which hydraulic cam to buy. road use and vacuum such that they can control the vacuum accessories on the car. torque at lower speeds. maximum speed around 5500 rpm.

You asked for and I gave an opinion based on decades of building these engines.

What were your initial and total ignition timing settings???
Did you curve the distributor???

In an OEM replacement distributor the timing curve is not all in until 4500 rpm.

When using a proper ignition curve I do not recommend 10.5 to 1 static c/r

You may however do as you wish...

Ok, no need to get angry, I'm just curious why, it's not enough to say that it has to be like that, I want to understand why it has to be like that.
I calculated the compression ratio for the crank from the link and the edelbrock 75cc head and it comes out to be 10:1.
yes, I have an OEM replacement distributor.
I had the timing around 10 degrees.
