but I didn't want to re-invent a carbed engine..

I am putting a 2011 FORD MUSTANG GT 5.0L COYOTE ENGINE AND GETRAG MT82 6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION in my 1956. The motor will be here next week and I will be documenting all the fun issues I run into.

On my 5.3l GM, it was $75 to send the ecu, programmed and postage back.
on the 4.6l its $150 (used) programmer (SCT X3 ), $100 programming service(cheap), and I haven't even wired up the engine yet.

DetailZone will reprogram the 4.6l ecu for $350. I don't know what happens if u need a change.

Thanks for the response, Sam. I consider you a valuable source of info. I am keeping this truck all Ford although it may a tougher row to hoe. They are using the 4.6 in older Mustangs and Rangers now and those guys can be a great source of info, also.

Dallas Mustang quoted me $50 for deleting PATS and a tune, eliminate EGR, rear O2 sensors and air pump if I get a box for it. 1997 Mark VIII.

That sounds way better than $350. I thought that was way too much. For my application I shouldn't even need a reflash. Not totally committed to this motor yet. I got it cheap ($300 with trans) without hearing it run but that Telorvek harness costs $760. And its' specific for the 93 4.6. That's a big gamble.

I bought a used SCT X3 tuner for $150.. off ebay. cheapest I could find.. took a month to find one that didn't get bid up.

make sure it 'unmarried', else SCT charges $150 to reset.. (so $175 ($325-150) is as high as u should go, else buy new one)..

4.6L mounts in F100?

Anyone have any suggestions on fabrication of a motor mount setup for the 4.6L in a 55 F100?

4.6L Motor Mounts

Thanks. Had googled but came up with very little. Looks like they will work just fine.

cmoritz is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Not trying to digress..and still stay on topic...somewhat..
I remember early in my hot-rod magazine reading years..thumbing thru a Hot-Rod magazine, and coming across someone out west (Colorado?) installing a big-block Oldsmobile Toronado engine/trans (front-wheel drive) in an el camino,..
living in the Mid-atlantic and learning how to drive in a little snow..and realizing how little traction the rearwheel drive chevy's were...it made perfect sense to me then... even at a young age, and still does...and I think that pretty much corrupted me.
