Well it's possible. But would probably be a lot of work. Just mod your Coyote. You'll make more power out of that for the same money as it would take to swap in a terminator engine.

It's just that I rly like the look of the 2013-2014, especially the tail lights, but the 04 termi engine is just an engine that I rly like (this one only has 12k on it also) and if I could successfully drop that heart into the 2013 GT body I'd hav both aspects that I'm in love with in one car lol and if I need more power down the road I can do that later on. Basically just wanna make sure it's possible

Very true lol I don't think it'll be a rediculous amount of money tho, becuz I'll have everything from the cobra basically like a donor setup, so any real major cost would hopefully be from any fabrication/alterations that need to be made and I'm gonna be doin basically all the manual labor with a few of my friends so yeah

Id just buy a shell or really old cobra/gt for a low price and start doing a complete termi swap as a project car and not void the warranty of the 13

If you want to do it. Then do it. I'm just letting you know it would be a lot easier and cheaper I think to supercharge it.

If u read the post I never said I had the 2013 body right now, I'm saying that's what I'm planning on dropping it into, but there's no point in me buying the car if the engine wasn't going to work at all with it that's why I posted here becuz I wanted to ask around, I had te 2002 v6 for close to 3 years and my little brother wants to buy it off me so I'm sellin it to him when he saves up then takin my money and the bit he gives me and gettin my next car which would be the 13 GT if it will work otherwise I'd be lookin towards a 69 fastback that's been catching my eye lately lol

The coyote makes about as much power as the termi... And it's N/A
Instead of swapping out for the termi drivetrain, buy a blower..heck, with the money you'd spend on that (8-12k?) you could build your motor.... Or completely change out your suspension

It's not necessarily that we're against it.. We just think you could use that money more productively. Do what you want though.

So either way you still plan on spending 10k on the termi donor?

Well then, this was semi informative I guess, got more criticism than answers but suppose that's what happens when u ask about a swap on a forum where most ppl are against it but okay, sooo to those who gave advice on the coyote instead, thank u I appreciate it and I've taken it into consideration, and everyone who thought I was joking or something, thanks for posting I guess?

Just ignore immaturity, whether its what someone else would do in your situation doesn't matter, your car your money your decision.

Let me give you something to think about...

The 5.0 Coyote puts down about 360 horsepower to the wheels STOCK
The 4.6 4v Termi motor puts down about 360 horsepower with BOOST

So far we know that they make the same amount of power, but one is stock and one is boosted.

You will be taking a very efficient and powerful motor out of your car and putting in one that requires boost to make the same amount of power... Not to mention that a crate 5.0 is worth 7k, you will be swapping in a less valuable/ less powerful motor.

Not to mention it isn't a straight swap, you will need the engine, harness, ecu, and probably even a different tranny or at least a new bell housing to make it fit.

Say you go through with the entire swap, you will have spent probably around 8k to make the same amount of power..... This is the reason you are getting criticized so much, it is a stupid decision..

But hey, if you really want to do it, go ahead. No one is stopping you. We are just saying that it is a very bad idea.

I was just informing you that you can make way more HP by building the 5.0 with the money used to swap in a terminator motor. But again. It's your car, your money. If you wanna spend it and swap in a Termi motor then do it! I was just letting you know you could make way more HP building up the 5.0 than swapping in a Termi engine

That's why I've already said thank u for the advice on the coyote lol and I've also said I'm not gonna drop it in the 13 becuz I'll keep that as my daily driver and if I feel the need to add power to it I will be able to, and instead I'll turn the 69 into a project car put it in that

Ok, maybe we misunderstood you about that part... Putting it in a 69 would be very sweet.
