Some Maniac Shoved A 5.0-Liter Mustang V8 Into A Porsche Cayman

Bet it's fun to drive. Get that boss intake off and put a 15 GT intake on it.


Pick your poison.

That reminds me of the days when people used to shoehorn small block Chevy's into 914's.

Kind of makes me wonder what happened to the original engine -- a grenade job?
If you love the sound of a V8 engine, there's probably nothing like having it six inches from your right ear. Headphones anyone?

It was really amusing to watch the Porsche fanboys go full lunatic over this.

Think about how the Mustang fanboys would feel if they put the Cayman engine into the Mustang that they scavenged the Coyote from!

I'll bet that they are nearly frothing at the mouth over this. Wonder what they would say to the owner of this particular Cayman if they ran across him.....After losing the race to him, of course.

They were trying to spout incorrect data such as that apparently, the Coyote is a "pig iron pushrod beast that weighs 800lbs."

Porsche purists are particularly amusing to correct.

Well, you know what they say about the difference between a Porsche and a cactus.......

But, I also would very much like to see some lap times at, maybe -- Laguna Seca (?) with the stock Cayman and the one with the Coyote in it.
It would also be nice to know the weight of the stock Cayman engine and the Coyote. I would imagine that the Ford transmission was included as part of the swap, and probably weighs a bit more as well.

The shop that built it says that they just made an adapter plate, and mounted it to the original Porsche transaxle.

I want to see VIR Full and VIR Grand West times. Full is more power friendly, where Grand West is actually very balanced.

They probably mated the Coyote to the Porsche transaxle via an adapter.
Porsche generally makes a pretty stout transaxle.

To be really honest here, I would have gone with a GM LS-series instead of the Coyote for that swap. The Coyote is great when you have plenty of room, but the LS fits better in tight places and would have helped keep both the weight and center of gravity down.

It is always nice to see my fellow travellers on the road less travelled.

There has been a couple of those that come to the local cruise nights I frequent. There is also a MGB with SBC in it to.

I planned on putting a DZ 302 in my MGB vert. Would've been a bigger death trap than it is already. Cool tiny British cars.


Pick your poison.

There is a red Mazda Miata running around Augusta, GA with an LS stuffed between the fenders. It is basically a high powered go-cart.

It is a modern day version of Carol Shelby's Cobra. It was for sale a few years back, but I was too wrapped up in drag bikes.

something like that would be more likely to have you wrapped up in trees.

edit: just watched video.....I want this.

A couple of years ago there was a Nash Metropolitan that showed up at the local cruise with a 502 Chevy big block stuff in it and a set of fat Mickey Thompson's out back. Everytime he started the car the hole body would twist lifting the right front wheel off the ground. The guy booted leaving the cruise one night and did a 360 in the middle of the road. Luckly he didn't hit anything but I never saw the car after that.

They are called Monster Miatas, and that is their business name as well. They do a booming business installing V8's in Miatas. You can even have the Coyote engine if that is your desire.
They say that the car still handles pretty well, as the engine is set so far back in the Miata, and they do stiffen the suspension appropriately to handle the extra weight, along with wider wheels and tires.

Imagine one with 1000hp.

I put a 454 in an S-10 (more like wrapping an S-10 around a 454. It was not a direct bolt in by any means. The front end was a tube chassis.

I don't know how much power that engine had. It was a very unbalanced truck that was only good for shows and burnouts in any gear. A truck bed doesn't offer enough weight to offset a big block.

The best day of owning that truck after the build was the day I sold it.
