Its a coyote engine. evil looking bastard! sadly you need notched towers & Mcpherson strut/mustang II suspension to fit one.


would this work with a RHD R&P total control front end set up...or is the mustangII set up a must?.

what additional gadgets (computer bits) would you need with this engine mod?

I know I don't NEED this set up but would like to see how far from reality I am Smile

Towers have to be notched, so a Mustang II or (heaven forbid) RRS McPherson strut suspension.

You will need a wire harness & computer to suit at the very least.

Envy66,

I have the full parts list for the installation including computer part numbers.
Ford racing supply pretty much anything. However I am in the process of moving house and will post details next week.

Envy66,

The list of gadgets I had to buy for my car is:

CTR-15-739 Oil Pick up
CTR-15-738 Canton Oil Pan (Front Sump)
M-6007-A50NA 5.0L Engine
M-6017-A504V 5.0L engine control pack (computer, engine harness, accel. pedal)
M-8600-M50BALT 5.0 4V Alternator Kit
9L3Z-11002-A Starter Motor
W500310.S438 Starter bolts (3 needed)
M-6881-M50 Remote Oil Filter adaptor

I purchased these direct from www.jegs.com or www.summitracing.com in the US.

As you are aware you need have notched towers to accomodate the engine in the engine bay and raise the transmission tunnel 2-3 inches.

I can not find engine mounts to suit off the shelf - so I have had to extensively modify the engine mounts I have.

has anyone had dealings with TCI?
Kerry have you seen any of their stuff in the states?...better or worse than the RRS option in yor opinion?
After a internet search I came across this website and they are doing a IFS for a 66 to accomodate a coyote motor.....not sure if they do a RHD option.

just doing some research for now before I even start my FB

I was a dealer for them in my CA shop. Used their stuff on a lot of hot rods. Good company to deal with, very prompt & good communication if you had a question.

It looks like their Mustang II front suspension in a frame that suits the early cars.

hey nick? hows this project going? ive been following Rich's MTF modular engine in a 67 fastback project in another forum .. it looks badass and they have solved lots of clearance issues by using a different tranny (thats smaller) looks blooody awesome.. i think they are developing aan exhaust kit for this type application which i assume will be available as something to buy.

not sure if i can link to the other forum in the US.. but it looks awesome in the engine bay! that might have to be my next project one day

anywho ..


interesting .. a carb version

I don't think we'd be able to use a carb version because it wouldn't meet pollution requirements.

George,

The project is progressing quite well - however I have been spending alot of time on getting the engine mounts and clearances correct for the engine.

I will be cutting up the trans tunnel for the second time this weekend to make clearance - but I will be very happy with the result. I am possibly being a bit obsessive with the engine location - if this was a professional job - they would have just left it where it was - and said near enough. I am going to put the engine in exactly the correct position. As far back and as low down as possibly practical. It is a steep learning curve for me as I have not done this before. But now is the time to do it.

FYI - The engine above is quite a different animal to the coyote. I doubt you will ever see a carburetted coyote engine - because it has variable valve timing (this is the reasoning behind what makes it such a great road car engine - a wide spread of torque). The engine will always require some form of computer control - so it make sense to leave it fuel injected. The variable cam timing also makes the heads much bigger and more difficult with clearances. The Cammer engine is a previous generation quad cam and my understanding is it does not have much in common with the coyote. The coyote is a square engine and the cammer is a more bored out 4.6 for high revs and racing. Some one correct me if I am wrong but my understanding is that the term "modular ford engine" actually refers to the modular nature of the ford assembly line - not the fact that there are garanteed similarities or inter-changabilty of the components that get produced of that assemble line.

That is correct, it is the plant that is modular, not the engine. It allows the same plant to retool for different variants quickly.
