I agree with you with just a little flip/flop.I'm sure that I'm a part of the minority here, that being said I think that the Coyote swap sounds great in theory but for a few reasons just isn't for me. The power levels, having EFI and a heavily modified suspension would be nice but I've never liked the sound that the new 5.0 motors make in the newer mustangs and popping open the hood to see all of that plastic and other stuff just sitting there doesn't do anything at all for me. I know that classic mustangs with SBF's have been done a million different times and it's cool to be a little bit different or unique, but I'd personally rather go with a SBF of similar power levels, maybe an Edelbrock Pro Flo 4 EFI as well as a heavily modified suspension instead. Just my thoughts of course.
A favorite body style for me too. The interior looks amazingly stock giving all the other mods and engine. I am curious as to what the car sells for.
Look back to post 12. Every time you comment on coyote swapped cars I picture an 80 year old man shaking his fist on his front lawn. Yet, you keep coming back....Okay, with the confession that I am not shopping, what is fascination with installing sailing equipment into the early Mustangs ? I don't get it. First, one has to remove the problem, THEN you have to repair all of the damage done to cause the problem in the first place. Whats up with the 'BAT' people. Whats the Coyote fascination ? Educate me. LSG
LOL.Angry, okay, so went back and read #12. I will refer YOU to #14. ANYTHING that a Coyote can do, the early engines can do, for a whole lot less, and without damaging surgery needed to make it all fit. If you WANT 20+ mpg and 500 hp, you can have it. And for alot less money than a Coyote swap. You are falling for the hype and mistique. 'Its all smoke and mirrors', says the angry old man, as he shakes his fist ! Interesting that ford chose that name, Coyote. Where I live, a coyote is considered a pest, and you can shoot them anytime.
HvsTool, you are mistaken, this IS a fun thread ! Its all a matter of perspective. LSG
I did a few things to add rigidity to the front end. SF connectors, torque boxes, 1.5" DOM from the firewall to the frame rail. Pics are in my build page. Link is in my signature.Angry, I LOVE the old man picture ! Well, I've driven Coyote powered trucks. I yawned. Also driven 545 stroker powered trucks. And 462" stroker FE, and Clevelands. I just don''t see ANY andvantage offered by a Coyote. I also don't like the fact that you have towind the piss out of them to get the power. Now, that said, alot of the customer 'builds' were a disappointment to me, personally. We always had several guys a week asking for 1. 'the biggest cam they make' or 2. a very lumpy / thumpy / choppy idle. We built what they asked for. When a customer asks us for what will work best for them, the results are quite different.
If your car's front was already altered, okay, whats there ? Have you added any bracing or reinforcement to address the issues that style suspension is known to cause ?
MSM, I like that you chose the windsor, but would love to know why you chose the front end that you did. Who is Rich ? I would have questioned your choice also, and tried very hard to talk you out of it. LSG
PS My hair is not as grey as the man pictured, but I am substantially heavier, and have a full beard. Would that add to the angry old man aura ?
