      would this engine fit in my 96 gt 4.6 even though its larger? I have a 96' mustang gt 4.6 liter. I want to replace it with a 5.0 for more power. Will this fit with no problem?

      • Yes the swap can be done and it has been done multiple times. It does however require an odd assortment of parts and customization, as this is not a direct drop in replacement. The article below outlines the step by step process to install this engine in an SN95 platform. http://www.mustang50magazine.com/techarticles/m5lp_1108_sn_95_coyote_engine_swap_part_1/ Remember not only will some custom parts be necessary (like exhaust to clear the different location of the transmission mounts) but you will also need to dramatically stiffen your chassis to handle the new power (nearly doubling) safely. You should also change your suspension to a stronger suspension to handle the new power. Lastly, this car will require a different computer to manage the engine. I would suggest finding a great local shop first and talking to them about the build process, specifically one that has built cars/platforms with mismatched engines.

      Will this motor fit in a 87-93 foxbody? Will this motor fit an 87-93 foxbody? And what will I need any help?? Thanks

      • It will fit, but you'll need everything from motor mounts and a new ECU, to a new transmission. If you're not making a track car, you're better off buying a newer GT/GT500 from a dealer. You're gonna spend $20,000 and up before you're finished installing that engine into any mustang pre 2005

      Will this fit in my 02 Gt? If So will it have a/c on it? Also will my Vortech V3 system work with it?

      • Yes the swap can be done and it has been done at least two times that I have seen. It is not a direct drop in replacement and requires some additional parts to put in. Additionally, a new wiring harness will be necessary. Preliminary reports say that the power steering, brake system, and alternator will need alternate mounting locations and some modification. You will also need a custom oil pan, which merges the front half of your New Edge oil pan and the rear half of the Coyote oil pan. I have not found a prefabricated one but they may now be available. Remember not only will some custom parts be necessary but you will also need to stiffen your chassis to handle the new power (145+ more ponies) safely. You should also change your suspension to a stronger suspension to handle the new power. S&R Performance was likely one of the first to do it. Good them and you can see the build. I would suggest finding a great local shop first and talking to them about the build process, specifically one that has built cars/platforms with mismatched engines. Your current Vortech system is not a direct bolt up but you may be able to use some of the parts to build a supercharger for the Coyote. Realistically it will probably be beneficial to sell the system and buy a new one designed for the Coyote engine.

      Would this require a new transmission? I have a 2005 GT with a stock Automatic transmission. I'm pretty sure a rebuild on the transmission will be needed, but will I need to change to a totally different transmission to us this engine?

      • You should be fine temporarily running a stock 05 tranny could cause damage eventually a rebuild as well would fit the motor

      what would i need to drop this in a 68' ?

      • Motor mounts, an acceptable transmission that works with this engine setup, I'd recommend long tube headers, shorty mid pipe, any of the v8 5.0L catback exhaust systems, likely a new radiator, cause the one from '68 won't be sufficient for this engine. Along with this you're gonna have to switch it over to EFI, so basically an entire fuel system and computer as well. Expect to spend at least double the engine costs on the remainder of the parts you'll need to install and turn this engine over in your '68

          9.5:1 Aluminator Motor

          This is a complete drop in motor. It even comes with exhaust manifolds and a flywheel, and intake cover, among may other upgrades. I purchased this motor to being my turbo project. I installed a clutch on my aluminator, and dropped this motor in place of my stock motor. Its a direct fit no problems. There are plenty of people running this motor on E85 and decent boost levels putting down 1,000 to the wheels. if you are looking to have a shop install your motor for you, expect a 20 hour job to have it installed. Your shop hourly rate will vary, but figure around $90-110 per hour.
