Coyote Engine swap into 96?

I was going to built a Factory Five '33 kit >BUT<

I totally in love with my T-birds so will the Coyote crate engine bolt-in?

Here's my plan:
Swap '90 SC body panels into my 96 (I like 90 look but like 96 interior)
Swap SC rear brakes to my 96
Swap 4.6 for Coyote crate engine
Install Paxton Supercharger
Paint Thunderbird 2012 Mustang Blue

Should fit just fine, the powertrain, wiring, power steering and motor mount brackets might require some creativity though. AFIK you'll be the first one pioneering this with an MN12.

check sean hyland's site. He has the motor, wiring, and a few stand alone transmissions. And a fix for the power steering. Hope money is not a factor...

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

My T-bird is like George Jetson's wife, you try to give her a little money, she takes the whole wallet.

Unless you just really wanna be unique I would suggest looking at mmr. You can get a motor with the same cubes and have them make the compression whatever you like. Then it would pretty well be a drop in and save you the headache of a swap. But if you would rather the coyote it would be pretty cool!

I say go for coyote. Then I can live my dreams out through you. My biggest hurdle is the $6k price tag for a new FRPP engine. I would bet that a used one would be about half of that, which is still way more than I expected. As you know...put Mustang on anything and it costs hella $$.

EDIT: A quick search of car-part yielded a few 3.7l engines which could be cool, but not exactly worth it since they arent that much quicker than my 2v. Looks like I'm going to have to let the Coyotes get older before I can get ahold of one! That or hit the lotto.

coyote puts a modular to shame in every aspect

ford sells the complete engine harness and ecu for 1200 out their frpp catalog so wiring is already done

last i seen the coyote crate engines were going pretty reasonably, should be able to get the engine and ecu for 7000, then you'll need a transmission, manual is my only option, autos are for women and dragsters

Would be tight to drop a blown 3.7 in a Thunderbird SC chassis, would be lighter, have better weight distribution, and true to the Thunderbird SC concept.

The coyote equipped F150s have a +/- push button on the shifter handle. Upshift/downshift as you please. Just gotta wire it up somewhere convenient and you're done. And of course, the F150 pcm can control the 6sp auto trans.

Change of plans as of right now... (feb/march)
Min rust on my 90 Super coupe, 96 has rusting rockers...
I'll remove the SC engine and all wiring for it.
I'll lower the Coyote engine in to check everything out.
At that time we'll have a better understanding how it'll fit (and work).

If it's a go, I'll remove everything sandblast everything.
Paint the SC the baby blue color from 2012 Mustang
Then go from there
(Engine bay will look something like my aviator)
I'll go with Ford/Saleen Supercharger not Paxton setup (looks better)
The SC is a Man. tran. would like to keep it that way -but not stock one
I did see a show where they have button kits. Push top one for up, bottom one for down. If I go with auto trans. I'll have this installed and delete the whole shifter.
My rear seats are fried because of sun. Thinking of a White leather interior with a custom flare...

Cost? Still cheaper or same as buying new car. Cost about $35-40,000 to built '33...

Hoping that Feb/march time frame because motorcycle wreck broke my foot. That was June and it's only 60% normal...

If something major pops up like major front suspension redesign, then Plan B
That's going ahead with Factory Five '33 build...

driving 96 Thunderbird LX
toy is twin turbo stealth r/t (for now)
Sold 90 Supercoupe to make room for next project..

Project starting summer/fall '13
hint about it is 33x22x15 on rear 28x12x15 front
140" wheelbase, 20' long, 7.5' wide, 2 seats
Coyote engine should take 20 months to build

If you need measurements on the coyote, I've got one sitting in the driveway. They are VERY wide. If you know someone that has one on a stand, that would be much easier. Here is what can be done with one. This car is 3600 lbs without me in it. TVS2300 supercharger only running 7 lbs of boost. I also still get 26 mpg on the highway with 3.73's. Just confirmed that with a very long trip.
