WHY SHOULD YOU MAKE THE SWAP?


The Coyote has proven itself to be a nice combination of fuel efficiency and reliability while still putting out a lot of power. This great balance has landed this engine as one of the most popular engine swaps. Also, the Fox Body is a very light vehicle coming in around 3,000 pounds which is much lighter than the Mustangs of today. This in turn will give the Fox that much more power gains. The Fox Body initially came with a pushrod engine instead of the modular coyote engine.

Coyote Swap Power Steering/Brackets:

Coyote cars had electric power steering, so there's no provision for power steering pumps. The addition of power steering requires custom brackets to add the pump. The reason why one would choose the SVE-8511D is because they desire to run power steering and accessories from a 96-10. We have other options from KRC and Ford racing for adding power steering if so desired.

Coyote Swap Oil System:

A stock Coyote oil pan can be used if an aftermarket K-member is used. A swap pan is required if using the stock k-member. Stock Coyote oil filters and coolers require removal or relocation of the front sway bar. SN95 sway bars can be used on the Fox to help clear alternator and A/C, this requires cutting the Fox sway bar bracket from the frame rails.
