    Hello fellow S197er's. Name's Al, Had my 2010 4.0l for almost 8 years/+100,000mi in which time it has underwent quite an extensive transformation from stock. Car has been my daily and did a short season of drag and a couple of seasons of HPDE.

    Previous setup was completely stock 4.0l with X-Charger Xtreme kit, TVS1900 blower upgrade, pullied at a tad under 15lbs. 60lb injectors, Walbro 400lph fuel pump, 13/14 GT500 heat-X, VRP superflo pump(rebadged CWA-100), TR3650 trans, 8.8, spec 3+ clutch. Long tubes and H-pipe.
    Car made 374/376 RWHP on E85 and I managed to run a 12.56 on the 13lb pulley.

    Unfortunately I've come to the end of the road with the current power plant. My plan was to run it until it broke and thanks to a bum timing chain tensioner, I managed to put a couple of valves into the cylinder and take a chunk out of piston #4. Crazy enough it didn't fail on the track but during a street pull. Didn't realize the extent of the damage until I pulled the heads.

    So I'm diving into a Coyote swap. Just picked up a '13 F150 coyote today. Since this car is no longer my daily I can take my time with the swap. Car is mainly going to a weekend cruiser and HPDE toy from now on.

    Currently breaking down the issues the will need to be addressed with the swap.
    Intake
    Exhaust
    Wiring Harness
    Cams
    ECU
    Tune
    Transmission
    AC
    Power Steering
    Fuel System

    Intake, Exhaust, Tune, Transmission are pretty straight forward. Cams, AC, Power steering, fuel system are also pretty well vetted out just need to make decisions on which direction I want to go with these components. The wiring harnesses and ECU are still leaving me a tad befuddled, but I'm trying to pull together as much info as I can on the subjects.

    So long to the old boat anchor 4.0, you will be missed.
    :boohoo:

    Will keep updated on progress. Currently have engine/trans out of the car. Coyote still in the truck will probably go on the engine stand tomorrow.

    You will get really familiar with C175B, T, and E connectors (B mostly)

    I have a perfectly good 4.0 I can sell you cheap. lol

    Engine out of the truck on the stand. Scored a set of intake cams. Waiting on timing cover, Oil Pump, OPG, and block mount brackets and I'll probably go ahead and slide it in the car. [​IMG]

    Scored a MT-82, shifter, <3000mi Mcleod RST, and flywheel with ARP bolts for $800. Gotta love these internet classifieds. Getting ready to start getting the fuel system ready. Weather has turned around here so works going to be slow. Got my Ford workshop DVD's coming today, So I'll be able to start working on the wiring.

    Got some wiring and fuel system stuff in. Still got a week of work before I get some time off to start working on the car. Just in time for a cold front to move in.

    Weather has been rough so works been slow. Got the new fuel pump control module installed and wired in. Got the old harness and PCM out along with the old trailer harness. Went a head and wired in my old FPDM wiring upgrade relay into the harness. The '11+ harness uses a larger gauge wire back to the FPMC.

    Also got the C175B pigtail pinned and ready to splice in. I bought the DR3Z-14300-H battery cable and M-12508-M50 engine harness. So my C175E and C175T harness should be good to go with the exception of the two inline connectors that connect to those two harnesses.

    Started splicing in the C175B connector but the snow and dark drove me back in. Hope to finish majority of the engine bay wiring today.

    Here's a vid from #gridlife and some drag a few years ago.

    Wait, you are leaving the 50 pin C175B (V6) and splicing the 70 pin connector to it?
    I just moved the wires from the 50 pin to the new 70 pin. Minimal splicing involved that way.

    I'm moving wires over to the 70 pin, I'm just leaving the 50 pin there for now so I can more easily ID the wires

    Nice thread Op, that 1/4 vid with the 4.0 and supercharger moved out on the short end! Your 60ft on that run looked bad ass.

    Got the '13 EPAS rack in courtesy of Midway Mustang Parts. Made a bracket for the additional arm on the EPAS rack. Probably go pick up some tie rods and ends tomorrow and get it installed.

    Got the accelerator pedal and pigtail wired in. Just a heads up for anyone needing the pedal. RockAuto sells an Airtex/Wells branded pedal for $58. When I got it it was stamped FoMoCo made in Canada.

    Also got the tie rods, boots and the EPAS all snugged down. Didn't connect the tie rods because I think I may go ahead and try the poly bushings on my lower control arms.

    Weather's cleared up, right now the main hold up is. I'm waiting on some TTY bolts from ford so I can install the GT cams, and new BOSS tensioners. Once that's done the engine will pretty much be ready to drop in.

    I've been at the mercy of the postman. Shipping delays have been working me. The TTY bolts for the cam caps and phasers were delayed. Took nearly a month for my billet crankshaft sprocket to show up.

    Now that I've got the crank sprocket in I can go ahead and time the engine and seal it back up. I got a new mustang oil pump installed with billet OPG. Also got the mustang intake cams installed as well as a Moroso oil pan and a mustang windage tray.

    Also started fabbing up mounting for my oil cooler.

    Have a few days off coming up and good weather in the forecast, So the engine should be in the car early next week at the latest and maybe started before the end of next week. Right now I am mainly waiting on my ECU to come back from getting a PATS delete. Supposed to be 2 to 3 business day turnaround now going on 2 weeks. So with my luck I may get it back next month. :angry1:
