99-04 Coyote Swap

Ok so the idea has pondered my mind lately and i started doing some research into what all it would take, what parts are needed, and what you can go around. I've also seen a few others who have been thinking of it as well since the price of Coyote pull out engines are coming down in price, so its relatively easy to find used ones for cheaper.... And whether or not i actually go through with it might as well get some info out there for others who may. There is so much information out there i've probably only seen 30% of it, so i'll post up a bunch of links that are packed with information.

Start out by watching these videos Late Model Restoration put out. It'll give a general overview of what its all about.

Mustang Coyote Engine Swap Project

I dug up a few threads and blogs about the swap as well which i found some amazing information.

The guy who made the thread below also made the write up below that.
Rktsci25's 01 GT Coyote Swap 440rwhp, 30 mpg

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ap_writeup.pdf

This next one is a blog someone made while they were doing the swap in their '00 Convertible

Coyotify Blog | All about Coyote swaps… | Page 4

By the looks of it you can spend a whole ton on the swap, or there are some places you can "cut corners" and save a bit of money, especially if you are on a budget oriented swap; since there seems to be a lot of speculation on parts that are required vs recommended. I myself already made an excel spreadsheet of parts needed, where to get it and price.

Here is my Excel spreadsheet i made that lists out different parts, prices and sites.... Its not the end-all/be-all to the swap, just a lot of the parts i found that you may/will need.

Coyote swap.xlsx

If anyone has stuff to add or anything, go ahead. I'll post up more when i find it.

Had this thought, then realized a 2011-14 will cost just as much, with much more to offer could also get a termi for close to those dollars as well.

The main reason a lot of people do the swap is because they don't want to sell their cars, they either have too much invested in them already or they are just too attached to it. I told myself i would never sell this car.

Besides, with a motor swap like that my car would weigh in the 3200s for weight, much much less than the S197, with the same power. And a bit lower center of gravity.

I updated the original post with it just now.

As you all can see, its very easy to spend a lot on it, but there are also places to cut corners and save money. And a 5% or 6% forum discount can go a long way.

Great news for those California people. I don't know how i didn't see this before, but it looks like these BBK Coyote swap Longtube headers are CARB legal, the only Longtubes i've ever seen legal in the state of California.

BBK Chrome Coyote 5.0L Mustang Swap Long Tube Headers 1634 (79-04 All) - Free Shipping

Quick question, if I have the bbk o/r xpipe with the bbk longtubes already on my 03. For my understanding, all I have to do is replace my bbk longtubes with the coyote bbk longtubes?


Will the coyote longtubes hook up to my bbk o/r xpipe that I already have?

That I'm not sure about. Would be another good thing to do digging into.

orrrrrrr buy one of these Salvage Vehicles for Sale Online Auto Auction - Salvagebid.com

as far as exhaust it wouldn't take much for a shop to bend some pipe to make it hook up to you existing h or x pipes. fuel well you'd need to know the fuel consumption rate of the engine and match it.

99-04 Coyote Swap

From what I've seen a single SVT Focus fuel pump will work, dual is a good idea though. Or even a return style system.

That site is good but they rape you on shipping charges and transaction fees.

Yeah but I'm sure you can find a local one just an idea of what the price is. And once you pull all your parts you can sell it to a scrap yard and sell all salvageable parts to get a little money back

Anyone know if I could use a control pack from a 2014 mustang ? Instead of buying parts, I know someone who is parting out there 2014 5.0 and Thats what I will be getting the engine from. Anything I can use from the car other than the engine?

Truth. You should see VA drivers when it's a drizzle, they start all driving like grannies. One time when it was raining (ok, it was kind of bad) a guy was going 20 on 264 ( 55 mph speed limit)

All that I've seen anyone who has done the swap has used a new control pack. A lot of those are crate motors though.

Just saw a rebuild candidate F150 Coyote with 80k miles for $1k in Texas that still runs but has low psi in #5. These are another good option for building because they are damn near identical to the Mustang Coyote. Truck intake cams, intake is different IIRC, 10.5:1 compression is a bit lower and that's really it.

IMO, you could easily take that $1k motor and put $2500-$3k into it and have a brand new Coyote with Boss upgrades if you wanted. OEM parts are dirt cheap at Tousley and some other dealers.

Maybe I'm talking out of my *** though. Like to see what ppl who have done teardowns/buildups on these things think it would cost using OEM parts to do a nice fresh budget Coyote on a rebuild candidate. I mean you could do the $1k boss rotating assembly if the bores check good and be good to 800whp. I am not familiar with how much the heads cost to refresh but assume that machine work on the block would be similar to any modular.

Well I have since decided to go another route. I realized a coyote swap wouldn't be the best way to go for a college student with very limited resources...... Not going to spoil anything yet since my new plan is already underway.

Sell the Buillitt and buy a $6-$8k F body?

I tallied up the cost of my car plus the cost of a Coyote swap and I would be in the $16k range and that is with selling my Teksid and motor and trans. That's a lot for a 98 2V but it would be done over a year or two and no car payments and $20/mo insurance. Something to think about for sure for anyone considering the swap plus cost of the car. I keep going back to getting a 2011 myself in a few years but time will tell. Not having a car payment to worry about is very nice.

You'll see what the plan is in the next week.

Vortech V2 S trim, with a Procharger 3 core intercooler, a BOV and all the piping with injectors.... I'll need to upgrade the fuel pump though.

I don't think it would really think it would be that hard to do. Maybe need a few redbulls but would be manageable
