That was not even in he original directions or come with the control pack in 2013 . I'm interested to know more about them . And if they are even needed .

Yeah I started doing some researche and it seems to me I'm SOL because this harness is for 2015-16 coyote . Not many guys out there that I have seen .... Have write ups on it. What I'm going to do is mount magnetic switches instead of fabricating some type of bracket . Figured this is just as good if not better then these cheap plastic sensors.

what doesn't fit about them?? [ I assume they hit the frame] any chance a BFH might make them fit.
I was watching an episode of engine warriors they took a set of headers and dyno tested them then smashed the tubes nearly flat and lost all of 3 hp.
If you take a look at the passenger side header there's a tube that parallels the floor goes straight accross... Well that one hits the top part of my suspension where the shock mounts. A BFH won't help the matter but it will make me fell better lol. I'm thinking of seeing if I can take it to someone here in California and have them fab up that tube . I have yet to try the driver side so That side might need some work too. Right now I'm trying to figure out my alternator situation . If anyone had the similar problem let me know what you did plz . I'm looking for sometype of bracket that will allow me to flip it. I'm not sure if the alternator spins counter clockwise will it not charge?

Wonder why they added the clutch pedal sensors, mine is 2014 and no sensor ( very happy face).... Your plan sounds logical,

Check out the Power by the Hour bracket it flips the Alternator, so it faces Azz. out, It will cause relocation of some of the other components though, as it mounts on passenger side I think....
Why are you wanting to reverse it??

The 66 I posted for you earlier. He cut and modified the factory headers to clear, so I guess it's a 60's thing, Try calling kooks they may have something or maybe looking for a prototype body to make one ....

There is a bracket to flip the alternator .Check with Stang-Aholics restorations ,i believe they helped design it .They did a coyote in a 66 Fast back and helped design the motor mounts and all .

Just read the thread- Did you ever figure out your issues? Love the car
As of right now I have managed to get everything mocked up and fitted. I never was able to find a smaller Alternator so if anyone has a site in mind it would be very much appreciated if you can post a link. So it's at a shop getting Custom headers made for the time being. Sorry haven't done much to it since I moved and had some other things in my plate. So that's where I'm at right now. I got the whole wording done with quick releases so the trans and engine can be pulled out with out any wiring making it complicated. Happy holidays and New Years to all! I will post more pictures when I get the ball rolling again .

Ok guys after so much time passing due to personal issues I finally got to the part here I turn the engine over and hear this baby start..... problem is ..... it cranks but doesn't fire. Hooked the computer up and it doesn't seem to be reading RPMS or reading the accelerator pedal. Also when we go to crank it it starts to dump fuel thru the headers on both sides. This is a coyote crate engine with a Ford power pack system. Have any of you guys had this issue? I'm thinking for some reason the injectors are stuck open? Maybe they are dirty? It's a brand new engine .

so I'm finally beginning the coyote swap (2015 crate engine)as per the other thread I was asking questions at and I much appreciate it if you guys would join me . I know basics about building cars but I like to get ideas and opinions from people more knowledgable then me. So I began with making sure my bellhousing was properly parallel to the block and then aligned to the crank. So got that done . Now I have installed my flexplate and flywheel ..... Moving on to the McLeod RST clutch set up . Now I stoppedherebecause I was unsure of a few things

1) should I use Loctite on the bolts that go from the floater plate to the flywheel?

2) the bolts stick out the back side of the flywheel once installed all the way. Not enough to hit anything but they do a bit. I ordered my whole set up from ModernDline and they sent me ARP bolts for my specific application and these do not stick out the back side of the flywheel BUT do have washers on the bolts which the McLeod instructions say not to use washers . Confusing !. Shiuld I just use the ARP bolts? With loctite? I'm just not sure if using loctite on these bolts would not be such a good idea since the clutch can get hot and possibly melt it?? Rendering it useless...

Any opinions are welcome here.
