Coyote Swap, but Not a Mustang

Another project I'm working on.

2013 Shelby Brembo brakes for my 67 Cougar. I will be installing a Sport IFS from Art Morrison to make room for a Coyote motor swap in the future.

Those are cool cars. So many similar parts that it is easy to be a Cougar and Mustang fan.

Very cool. '13 GT brakes and adapter brackets are waiting to get installed on the Fastback.

I had a bro in law with one years ago. He called it a mustang for grown ups

Tats a scary driveway incline and big street you live on for a project.

If you ever want to upgrade from the GT brakes it will be a bolt in affair.

My brother (twin at that) has the red 66 mustang I showed in another post. Figured I should be different since we have too many things alike. Lol.

The car will actually be going into the garage to be worked on, but I need to get my brother's other 66 mustang out of the garage first.

Good to know! Do they require 18" wheels?

At a minimum 18s are required. And even some of the 18s may not fit. Ford Racing I believe lists the wheels that would work.

A little bit of an update. As I mentioned before I did some small things here and there. Front brakes installed.

I did some prelimnary mock up with the coyote engine.





Along the way I built an engine lift fixture because I didn't feel comfortable with the lift brackets supplied with the coyote engine. I can see them bend as I lifted the engine. Getting the CG right also proved to be cumbersome with the supplied lift brackets.

To date, I have mostly installed the front suspension. Still need to weld upper control arm mount gussets, top coil over mount, and the down tubes to tie the frame to the firewall. I'll tie the gussets, coil over mounts, and down tubes together.

Small update. Tacked the motor mounts in. Going to finish mock-up with the transmission then complete final welding.
