$2500 for the motor
$500 for new cams (GT intake, Boss exhaust)
$1400 for the control pack
$700 for the accessory brackets
$1100 for swap headers/mid pipe
$500 for a new 3" catback
$1800 for a fresh T45 or 3650 from Zak/SpeaceATL
$500 or so for a mail order tune
You are now right at $9k, this is just bare bones and not taking into account the fuel stuff, suspension and other "basic bolt ons" so figure more like $12k. Again this is doing it all yourself.
Now factor in the cost of a clean 94-04 car and when I say clean I mean real clean, something you would not need to do much to, something like I just sold.
Figure $6-$7k for one like that which is right in the price of what I sold mine for so now you are at $18-$19k and you still probably need to do a few things to the suspension/chassis to get it right.
Like I said, I've ran the numbers and there is a reason I sold that car above as good as it looked and as well as it ran. I sold it because when all was said and done, I could buy a real low mileage 11/12 Coyote for the price it would take to finish this car.
IMHO, the Coyote swap is great but its not cost effective. For someone with a car like that one I had, get a $1500 used S trim and then get it tuned remotely and be happy with a 400rwhp 2V which will run 11s all day and be a real fun street car but if you are looking for more power than that I have to say sell and go with something that starts out around the 400-500hp level and go from there. YMMV.
