    Coyote 5.0 Engine Swap....in a Thunderbird

    This is one of my favorite forums to get info and help from awesome members, thought I'd share my Coyote swap project. I know it's not a SN95 but a Ford non the less. Using a 2013 Mustang Coyote with 26K with Ford Racing controller pack. I ready have a built-up 4r70w with a Circle D TC, Lantech MVB, Hurst shifter. Alternator and power steering bracket kit from Power by the Hour. Keeping the IRS with 4.10 gears. Coyote flange MN12 kooks headers. Brand new AJE tubular k member. Dyno tune sometime this sping. Lots of pictures to share!

    Test fit







    I bought turbo exhaust flanges from JEGS and the diameter of the port holes were 1.75". My MN12 Kooks headers have the 1.50" primary. I bought a steel tube from a welding shop with an OD of 1.75" and an ID of 1.50" perfect, only $5, they were going to scrap it. I cut the steel tube into 8 rings to have welded in the flange so I could match the 1.50" primary. I than had the headers welded on top of the flange. I just got them back this week and did a test fit, they are golden. The driver side is a little tight but it will work. I also had a extra O2 bung welded in for my wideband. So they are done for the most part, I just got them back from the machine shop. After all the welding, the heat will warp the flange, so I had them flatten the mounting side. Next week I'm having them ceramic coated.





























    The oil pan.













    These are for Cobra rotors in the rear. I also did a Mustang 4.50 hub swap and bought new UHMW knuckle and lower arm bushings for the rear. New Cobra rotors and pads, braided brakes lines, Reman Corvette calipers, Reman rear T-Bird calipers and wheel spacers for Mustang rims.


















    Man these are cool! Can't wait to have these in. The speedo is GPS, no VSS to plug into. Turn signal and flash built in. Made in the USA.

    Used some silly puddy to see what the clearence from the bottom of the sump.

















    2011+ Mustang 5.0 the oil adapter





    Headers and oil pan, coming together!








    Since this is a full manual I have to wire buttons for the TC lock up and overdrive. I'll probably wire the red button on the hurst as the overdrive and put a button on the center console dash for the lock up.









    I bought this 1/4 steel plate 12x4" to mount the hurst shifter. Drilled the holes and mounted nice a strong.
















    I had to cut a little tab out in the front, not bad.

    Nice build! High quality parts too. Can't wait to see the finished product, is this going to be a sleeper or track car?

    Thank you I was just looking over your build thread, that is bad ass mustang, I like the cowl hood. Just a street car. I was going to ask, did you make the power steering bracket?

    Thanks for the kind words OxmanWI, I used PBTH power steering pump bracket, the reservoir bracket is a custom aluminum piece that attaches to the coyote's timing cover and fits pretty good. I did not want to lose PS as this is my grocery getter (daily).
    Your manual shifted auto threw me off as far as a street car. Ive seen a 5.0 swapped BMW but not a late model T-bird. Keep up the great work!

    I got the headers back from ceramic coating. The valve covers back from powder coating. I'm hoping mid May or June 1st for a start up.

    Dude this is so awesome!

    This build will probably help several Mustang guys drop in since it's still ultimately a 4.6 to 5.0 swap.

    I love it. Great parts list, great progress so far. I wish I could see it in person!

    Those headers turned out great! To bad they are tucked away. Ive been poking at a set of coyote headers evolving them into 5.4l swap headers. Your build has inspired a few ideas for me. Thanks

    Little update:


    A few weeks ago I got the transmission back.





    The engine and transmission are in the car for good, I did that a week ago or so.


    Today I was able to put in the headers and starter. Tomorrow I'm hoping to start more on the wiring and install the radiator and fan. More to come!
