Kurgan Motorsports: 2011 Coyote 5.0-Swapped FoxBody

When some people think of Fox Body they immediately think 5.0. During the 80’s and 90’s the 5.0 was the performance beast for the Mustang. Soon after, Ford dropped the 5.0 and began working with the 4.6-liter instead.

Take a look at this Fox that Kurgan Motorsports has done some impressive work to. They are one of the first ones to get one of the brand new Coyote 5.0s installed into a Fox!

No more 4-cylinder for this Mustang! The engine and drivetrain came from a wrecked 2011 Mustang GT. “The engine just dropped right in,” said Bob Kurgan. “It was everything else that was difficult. With this engine only being out for just a little while, everything had to be custom built for it to swap over.

“Getting the engine running was easy,” says Bob Kurgan. “We had to custom make the motor mounts, air conditioning brackets, power steering brackets ourselves. But it’s a friggin’ animal on the streets.”

Right now the ‘Stang is being fitted with custom Kooks headers. The brake booster came out of an ’03 Cobra, and a T-45 transmission swap was performed to back the much more powerful engine. It is currently slated for a supercharger as well.

Say goodbye to the old 100-horsepower 4-cylinder and say hello to 412 horsepower and 390 ft-lbs of torque! Thanks to Kurgan, this will now make it easy for anyone wanting to do the same exact swap for their Fox. After they show off how to swap this new motor into the Mustang in Carlisle Ford Nationals event, they plan on working with Ford to get a kit readily available.

    I want to swap one of these engines into my 96 tbird but I hope that a kit will make it possible to do so. The hardest part of the engine is figuring out how to hook up the power steering and air conditioning. I know that I will need a one off set of custom headers.

    The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix for those who werent too busy in search of attention.
