    Has anyone here coyote swapped a 96-98 GT? Looking into swapping my 2v. Any tips or potential pit falls would be great. Also interested in using my stock gauges with the swap, if you know anything about that, please respond.

    To my knowledge we don't current have any active members who have completed the swap. There are a few members that are in the beginning stages of the swap.

    Well hold on to your shorts, as soon as I sell my ARH longtubes, it is on like Donkey Kong. I'd like to have the swap completed and on the road before May.

    I'm pretty sure we have a member here with a coyote swapped fox. But if I remember correctly, he had a shop do the swap, so he may not have the details you are seeking. Keep us posted, for sure.

    Theres a few guys over on SVTP who have done, and are in the middle doing a Coyote swap into their 96-98 Cobras. Have a look through the SN95 Cobras section on SVTP.

    Not a fan of SVTP community.

    Well, I have a bunch of money in the bank and I am just about ready to do this thing.

    Anyone here need a set of 2v long tubes with an off road X-pipe?

    i'm pretty sure I am going to buy an NA Alluminator just in case I want to boost it later.

    Ahhh the Coyote swap. This is something I've been thinking about doing for awhile, and once the cobra is finished I might just do it.

    Your main question right now is the electronics, well in order to make the Coyote work in our cars you have to buy the Coyote engine control pack, which is going to run you $1500 right off the rip. It comes with an ecu, wire harness, intake setup (which you can use or ditch for aftermarket), and pedal assembly. This swap can be done... Somewhat, affordably if you know what to look for. If money isn't an issue then just buy the crate engine and be done with it.

    K member I believe needs modifications or swapped.. It's been so long since I've researched this subject

    As far as headers go, they sell Coyote swap headers, you'll have to buy those or make your own.

    Battery will need to be relocated into the trunk, I believe fuse box needs relocated as well

    It's very very involved. If you don't feel comfortable doing a ton of work, hit up a reputable shop that can do all the work. Any other questions just ask, I'll dig up some threads I read a long time ago and brush up on my knowledge

    You stick a boosted coyote engine in an SN, and you instantly have my nomination and vote for ROTM.

    I already have a k-member in the car so that is ready to go.

    I've got a clutch and flywheel.

    Exhaust, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, engine and controls pack are what's on the list.

    Definitely going ARH long tubes but I need to sell my 2v ARH long tubes first.

    I'll use my T45 for now and have a 3650 for a back up. (also willing to sell the 3650)

    I'm trying to beg borrow and steal my way into an alluminator.
