SN95 Coyote Swap

Recommended Posts

First things first, this is a post build write-up- still only 95% done, soon to have a built t-45 or t-56 and A/C! Not sure which one I'm the most excited about. Car started as a non-PI '97 Mustang GT, and this is the 4th engine I've had in it in the last ten years.


Here is most of the "bucket" of bolts!


-2012 F150 Coyote engine w/50k
-FRPP Coyote Engine Control pack P/N: M-6017-504V
-Power By the Hour Coyote Swap Accessory Bracket kit- (this requires the alternator, 96-10 or 2011 up mounted backwards and retains factory AC and power steering locations.)
-Engine Wiring Harness- if you purchase a used engine- P/N :BU5Z-12A581-GB (double check engine years, they changed the Ti-VCT plugs)
-Factory / aftermarket 4.6 motor mounts will work
-4.6 bellhousing Spacer Plate (Manual) P/N: M-7007-A
-4.6 Starter - Use the smaller 4.6 starter to clear the headers, the factory coyote unit is larger in diameter
-New style timing cover P/N: BR3Z6019G (this is a must for Power By the Hour Kit)
-BBK Longtube headers P/N 1634
-BBK swap X-pipe

-Custom 3" IRS cat-back with Magnaflow ss round mufflers
-Battery relocation kit (this is custom to you or your shop to install, I have a rear mounted starter solenoid, On/Off kill switch behind my license plate, you might get away with a small battery in factory location or mounting it in fender)
-8-bolt flywheel (I found a good deal on a Fidanza aluminum piece, any 99-04 8 bolt one will do)
-Aftermarket 1999-04 Clutch (array of clutches out there but stock will not last)
-Fuel Pressure regulator - Many choices as long as it goes to 55 PSI, I purchased the Aeromotive piece P/N: AMV 13129 Return Style - Must use ORB fittings! Fuel fittings / EFI braided hose (I connected to the factory return style system, still pricey and tedious) PM me if you have questions on this. Multiple trips to the local parts store, I have all part numbers.

-Fuel pump -  USA made Walboro 255 unit, this is the minimum lph required

-Division X dual fuel hat

-Glenn's Performance 03-04 sumped fuel tank
-Billet Fuel Pedal bracket (Scram Speed)
-Ford Racing Speed-Dial ( this is a must for 96-98 VSS transmissions, it is a factory fix to tell the new coyote computer that your car is moving, however I believe you can wire 99-up OSS transmissions directly to the ECU)
-Ford Racing Plug Pins (two) This enables you to re-pin the factory 50-Way "Key C" harness, not too difficult, I will explain in the write-up. Call FORD RACING they shipped them free-of charge.
-Factory Mustang intake camshafts, F150 ones are good too, and will save you $$$ on the factory torque to yield hardware.
P/N: Left - BR3Z-6250-F / Right- BR3Z-6250-E -
-Coyote heater hoses - right + left
-Various shims and spacers, my set-up includes Maximum Motorsports K-member spacers, Scram Speed motor mount spacers, and a Stifflers transmission cross member


-Maximum Motorsports full length subframe connectors

-MM six point

-UPR front suspension, k-member, control arms, coil-overs

-2001 Cobra IRS with Full Tilt Boogie bushing kit

-Tokico blues front/ Bilstein rears



-Canton powder coated p/s reservoir

-03-04 rack and pinion

-MM steering shaft



-Corbeau GTS II seats

-ACC carpet

-Autometer Phantom II temp and oil gauges

There is  more to come.......


Here you can see the new intake cam installed, make sure to use ARP ultra torque lube when installing the cam cap bolts. Do not forget to lube the cam journals as well. This is a good link to properly time the camshafts and you will need a 1- 1/2 wrench or large adjustable wrench.






This is Scram Speeds pedal bracket installed, the pedal that comes with the kit has three ears on it, the upper right hand one needs to be trimmed in order to fit against the firewall.




Here is a picture with it installed and the air box that comes with the FRPP control pack- does not fit well also installed is the old 4.6 alternator, RIP.
