coyote in a fox

Has anyone here successfully done this? what was the total cost? Was it worth it or would dumping the money into a 302-351 be more practical

It would be hella expensive to swap a coyote into a fox but it would be sweet if you've got the cash. I've got an '88 Bronco II I'm seriously thinking about dropping a roadrunner (Boss) into it.

Talking Re: coyote in a fox

I don't have 10 grand but was thinking i could put it together in time searching the wrecking yards. i know its a bad though but i know some will get totaled in a wreck but still have good parts for much less than new. i have a 87 lx and i think that would be strong in a light fox

it would be real strong. even a wrecked one with a good motor is still gonna cost alot. but if you keep looking i assume that you will eventually find a deal.

Thanks for the links.


Note: Anyone doing a swap, if you have time and would like to document and take pics of the procedures you go through with your swap, we could use a good article on it.
No pay, but you would have the appreciation and gratitude of people doing the same swap later on.
