That Coyote motor looks awesome! I have been trying to come up with a way to get one for my project. I just haven't figured out a way as of yet. Keep up the great work.

Thanks Fauj! It was a gamble but with a little enginuity I was able to make them fit. The best part is I was able to get them for a little cheeper than the 13.5Ē,6 piston kit from AP Racing. These are 15.5Ē up front and 14.9Ē rear. A lot more braking for less😃

This is exactly what I have planned for my '57. This is fantastic! My largest issue right now is cubic-money, or a lack there-of. I can't seem to find a coyote for less than $6k. If you don't mind me asking... what did your Coyote set you back and what are you using for the ECU?

Well I was very lucky to have a friend to point me in the right direction of a guy who had a smashed 2015 Mustang gt. At this point I had already acquired a Lincoln mark viii irs though I already changed my mind on that to the new Mustang irs so I bought the whole car. The t-cover had a small crack in and a few other things were broken so after replacing them Iím into the car for 78 to 7900 although Iím currently parting the car out so the price of the motor and irs keep dropping every time I sell something.
As for the ecu, I sent it to a guy named Eric brooks to remove the factory immobilizer and unlock everything for tune ability. [email protected]
In case anyone want to get ahold of him.
I currenty simplifying the factory harness and removing everything Iím not using.

I just wanted to that this isnít always the best option because you do run the risk of ending up with a bad motor. I read an article where a guy acquired a coyote motor, put it in his f100 and it developed an engine knock that turned out to ba thrust washer problem so be cautious if choosing this route.
I did check the the end play on mine and it happens to be within spec which is good although I havenít ran it yet so Iím not out of the woods yet🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Kudos for having what it takes to tackle that wiring harness. I wouldn't know where to start with that.
