    Power steering? Brakes? HVAC? Sorry if you already covered that, I kind of skimmed. Damn the Coyote is a good looking engine.

    Nik I didn't , I figured I would forget stuff and someone would ask. It has a flaming river manual rack in it , skinny kid racing manual brake setup in it . This was all from when it had the 468bbc in it . No ac as of now maybe next year as well as powering steering .

    doesn't drive bad at all the motor is so light it isn't a chore .

    Exhaust is done and I wired 90 percent of the gauges I just need to program the speedo and install the physical oil and temp sensors . also wired the reverse lock out to the defroster sw. car is a factory defrost delete car so it's pretty stealth no extra switches !


    Let me tell you the power band comes on at 2500 and pulls like a freight train !!!!!!!!

    the stock grounds were horrible I used them and had all kinds of **** happening as soon as I hooked it up I knew it had back ground I ran a ring terminal to the Frame of the dash and they were perfect ....

    Thats a whole hell of a lot of money and work...you do know you could have gotten the same hp from a $1500 6.0 chevy truck motor and bolt ons right? I guess brand loyalty is worth the ten extra grand over an lsx swap

    first off I don't know if you are trying to be an ass or be serious . The car had a BBC 468 12;1 compression and a built th350 in it . Was tired of it and he wanted to try something new . wanted the drivability , gas mileage etc . Nothing wrong with that right ? wasn't too much work at all actually was a great build .

    Nothing wrong at all with the swap. Ive been a blue oval nut swinger for decades...finally got fed up with pure monster size of the ford engines,....not only that but the price tag on the new 5.0 is too high still. Within the next year ill be dropping in a 5.7 or 6.1 hemi into my 66 mustang, and my brother is dropping an lq9 ls engine into his 65 coupe..both are no wider than an old school 302, and both make the same hp as that fat 5.0 for thousands upon thousands less
