    Got the engine sealed back up, dressed and dropped in the car. Weather has turned on me again so I'm done for this week. If the weather holds out on my next few days off, I should be able to get about 80% complete. Still waiting on my ECU unfortunately. :mad:

    Got to wrestle with the transmission today. Went ahead and changed the fluid while it was out. Trans slid in like a butter. Also got the passenger side header in. Started getting dark before I got to the driver.

    I've pretty much got the car ready to crank, weren't for the lovely individual that has had my ECU for over a month I would have been able to attempt a start today.

    Got the fuel lines ran
    Pinion flange switched out
    Starter installed
    Pressure tested my old Mishimoto rad.
    Ford racing fan
    Rad installed
    A/C lines hooked up
    MAF pigtail wired
    AC pressure transducer pigtail wired
    Coolant lines ran
    Oil cooler installed and lines ran
    Oil temp and pressure, and water temp gauge senders installed
    Transmission and engine harness installed

    Still have everything loosely installed. I want to make sure I can get the car started and up to temp and check for leaks other issues before I lock everything down into place. At this point I think I'm going to have to cut my losses and just order a new ECU and send it somewhere else. I'd avoid Kevin Sykes with Syked ECU tuning btw.

    Still have a few things to order in order to finish up but I'm hoping to have it up and driving week after next.

    Got my Ford Racing 3.5" Aluminum DS installed also Barton Hybrid 3 shifter with the trans mount. I'll start wiring the gauges tomorrow. Went with Glowshift tinted. Oil temp and pressure and water temp. I'm also going to change out my front control arm bushings and ball joints. Then I can go ahead and attach the tie rods and do a rough toe alignment.

    I went ahead and shelled out for another ECU. I hit up The Parts Farm and they quoted me $365 for a ECU with PATS disabled shipped. So that's on the way.

    I was able to prime the fuel pump, without the ECU. Turned the key to start and the pump went through the prime cycle. So I was able to check the fuel system is holding pressure and no detectable leaks.

    And just like that ECU is in the mail will be here Friday. Nothing like working with professionals. Once again thanks to Thepartsfarm.com

    How much would you want for that PCM?

    I'm sorry to hear you gave business to the Partsfarm. He tried to rip me off, but that is another story. That said, I would try to contact him to see if he would take it back. But I doubt he will.

    All I know for now is that Sykes has had my ECU for almost 7 weeks. I contacted parts farm and they got one in the mail less than 12 hours after payment. So as long as it works when it gets here they are in good terms with me.

    Well, I said I wasn't going to but..... My ECU came in yesterday and I'm on night shift this weekend, so I said I would leave it alone until Tues when I get off. However, I got off this morning and said screw it and went ahead and hooked up the ECU.

    Got the mileage off the donor car when the dash lit up which was encouraging. Plugged in my tuner and was able to pull the stock tune off the ECU. Also looked over the scanner.

    Went ahead and pulled the fuel pump relays and keyed it over to start. Let it turn over a few times then pulled it. And on that note called it a day. Still have a few loose ends to tie up before I attempt an actual start. I need to change the injector data in my tune, I'm running the 47lb injectors. Need to disable the evap stuff, rear O2's and maybe turn off a few CEL codes I know will be present.

    So I'm done until Tues when I get off. Looking like rain but hopefully it will hold out. Should be running by next week.

    Also got the gauges installed and wired up.

    Important question... I literally just made this account to ask because I’m in a similar situation my engine in my 4.0 is blown and a friend of mine said he’ll sell me his engine, wire harness, ecu, transmission ect for 2500 dollars from his 2012 f 150 coyote... so 1: can I use f 150 ecu in my s 197 mustang... 2: estimate how much money did you spend after you striped the parts from the f 150? Need this

    The only thing I got from an F150 was the engine. Everything else was pieced together.

    I'm not sure if you can use the F150 ECU in a mustang, but I'd imagine you could. The Engine/ECU don't care what they are in as long as your feeding it the proper inputs.

    As far as how much you can look to spend. After you'd get everything he'd sell you you would still need to address,

    • Pats Disable/Delete $250+
    • Fuel system $150+
    • Drive shaft $150 +
    • Rear axle assembly $300+
    • Manifold to rear bumper exhaust $200+
    • Power steering $150+
    • Some wiring/pigtails/harnesses $100
    • Air intake $50
    These are just some estimates of parts you could probably scavenge used for cheap. But honestly, with what he'd sell you, I would plan on an extra $2000-$2500 to piece everything together.

    Got the LIMP mode figured out. Still a rainy mess this morning but I've started buttoning the car up this afternoon.

    Bruh I got to many questions on how you got this to work I just bought a coyote engine from a 2012 f 150 but I’m having trouble finding a transmission for it I need a manual 6 speed... and will I have any problems bolting the standard tranny on to the engine because it came from a automatic car

    Nope, all the Coyote's auto and manual, all modulars for that matter have the same trans pattern. I got my mt82, RST clutch, and flywheel from a BOSS that was going auto turbo 400. There are people getting rid of MT82's all the time, you just have to find one that's not broken. If you got the auto from the truck, more than likely you can find some who will trade you, probably with cash . I believe, don't quote me, that the auto from the F150 is the same or will at least run in the Mustang.

    Just get a Magnum XL. Don't waste time with that MT82. It may cost a little more now, but you will not have issues later. Shifts like butter. I got mine for $3550 shipped to my house. It comes with an SFI approved bell housing to boot!
