    I have a 2007 mustang gt with the 5 speed manual transmission. My motor is blown and I would like to swap it to a 5.0. Will the 1st gen coyote bolt up without fabricating a new oil pan. Also would I be able to keep my transmission? If anyone has any advice, or experience doing this I'd love to hear from you

    I've been researching my 4.6 to 5.0 swap as well. Your trans will bolt up, coyote will bolt in. The big hiccups are fuel and wiring.

    Some of the major challenges of the swap are: power steering, wiring, PATS bypass, and check engine light due to some inputs the pcm wont recognize (fuel level p0460 code). Wiring and pcm programming are the toughest hurdles.

    It really does not seem like its worth the effort and cost. What is wrong with the original motor, beside "blown"? Is the block windowed? Heads damaged? etc

    Throw a junkyard replacement in the car and add a supercharger

    Or buy a junkyard engine, have the cylinders rehoned, rebuilt it with new rod & main bearings/billet oil pump gears/forged rods & pistons with new rings, add your favourite supercharger kit, and get a custom dyno tune. The engine will then have no problem surviving as much as 700rwhp and the drivetrain will be the next weakest link to deal with.
