The Coyote Swap Continues … Again!
Jeff Huneycutt

Getting Ford Performance’s second-generation Coyote V-8 ready to drop into our ’99 Mustang seemed like cake back in April. Actually dropping the Coyote engine into the SN95 chassis still seemed easy when we updated you back in May. By August, we knew things were not going to go as smooth as a typical LS swap when we reported hitting a brick wall with the fuel system and ECM wiring. Here’s what it took to finally get the car moving under its own power.

Sometimes things are just much more easily said than done. Usually, it’s those tasks where numerous details have to be stacked up and worked out one after the other before the objective can be achieve. You know, things like the D-day invasion, putting a man on the moon, and Santa Claus delivering handmade toys to all the girls and boys around the world in one night. And you can add to that putting a Coyote crate engine into our Fake Snake ’99 Mustang GT.
