How can I add 50HP and Lower my ride?

Asked by Lightningstriker1 Apr 07, 2020 at 02:42 PM about the 1998 Lincoln Continental FWD

Question type: Car Customization

Hi. I'm on the verge of getting a 1998 Lincoln Continental and I want to add
more HPs and lower the ride. What do you suggest I do for the increase power
from stock to 300HP? And what's the best way to drop it?
Any help would be appreciated.

The only way to get that kind of power boost is to put a turbo or supercharger in it, which would cost about $5,000 to do it the right way. Then you can start saving your money for a new transmission cuz the old one will burn up in just a few months.


A low restriction intake and a lower restriction exhaust should get you a boost of about 15%. That's about fifty horsepower. Dropping is another issue. Most people don't bother with lowering Lincolns; they're more concerned with maintaining ride height. Go to a local performance shop for suggestions.
