With the old motor out of the way, it is time to start our Mustang Coyote swap! If you saw our Project Coyote Swap Introduction, then you know we will be installing the Ford M-6007-M50 5.0L Coyote motor into the Late Model Restoration 97 Cobra Bondurant race car. Being that this is a race car, we do have a few fewer accessories to worry about compared to your standard street Fox Body or SN-95 Mustang but we will cover all the major steps needed to do this swap on your own. One of the first and most important pieces to this swap is to install the Ford Racing Controls Pack M-6017-A504V.
Ford Racing did an amazing job with their Control Pack. These kits help make the Coyote Swap a do-it-yourself project that can be done in your own garage. The FRPP Control Pack includes PCM (ECU) with a Ford Racing calibration, electronic throttle control (drive by wire), accelerator pedal, complete wiring harness, OBD-II diagnostic data port, power distribution module, air intake tube, intake box, MAF sensor, and HEGO sensors. This swap requires a return-style coyote fuel system and will not work with returnless fuel systems seen on 99-04 Mustangs. If you are doing this on a 99-04 Mustang with a returnless style fuel system you will need to convert to a return style system.
The Ford Racing Control Pack wiring harness is clearly labeled with the plenty of information, and wiring diagrams are included in the instructions. Built into the wiring harness are connections for all the included hardware and the non-included hardware such as an alternator, cooling fan, the starter solenoid, and more. Again, FRPP made this control pack as user-friendly as you can make it. All you have to do is follow along with the included instructions, and you will find that the wiring is a cakewalk. In watching the video you will see that we located the OBD-II port in the engine bay for easy access is that the Mustang used for racing (this may change as we continue the build). We also mounted the PCM in the engine bay to keep it as protected as possible. We also used the SVE Coyote Swap Pedal Bracket ( SVE-9729PB) to easily mount the Ford Racing accelerator pedal into our Fox Mustang or SN95 Mustang.
With the wiring harness and PCM in place, it was time to address the coyote swap fuel system needs. Again the Ford Racing instructions do a great job highlighting all the fuel systems modifications you need to start your Coyote motor up! The PCM is calibrated for a return-style fuel system with a 55 psi delta fuel pressure across the injector. This means you will need a fuel pressure regulator that will allow you to maintain 55 psi at the fuel rail with the engine off. You will also need AN fuel rail adaptor (RUS-640853) to connect the fuel rail to the fuel system. Ford Racing states that the fuel pump requirements are 155 L/Hr minimum at 55psi.

There you will find all the Mustang tech you need to remove your fuel tank, install a new fuel pump, and plenty more!
We have now completed the Ford Racing Controls Pack installation and set up our return-style coyote swap fuel system. With these steps down and behind us we can now turn to the fun part that we know you all have been waiting to see – installing the motor. This next section will be a big update so hang tight as we prepare to answer more of your Mustang Coyote Swap questions!
