How’s it going everyone? Landan with lmr.com! In this video, I’m going to be checking out and installing these Coyote coil cover plates designed for the 2011 to 2017 Mustang GTs.

Engine dress-up is always a debatable topic amongst Mustang enthusiasts.

Some like it… some don’t! But, hey! That’s the joy of the hobby right? Doing what YOU want to YOUR Mustang regardless of what it may be.

These coil cover plates are a great addition to any 2011 to 2017 Coyote Mustang owner.

They’re machine cut from billet aluminum right here in the USA and feature a black anodized finish that is sure to blend well with most engine bays.

On the top of each plate is an engraved Coyote logo with a modern font style similar to the “Powered by Ford” lettering.

Now these do attach to a factory coil cover that reads “Powered by Ford” and are retained to the cover with the provided hardware.

Each plate is side specific and you will have to drill six small holes into each cover.

To begin, pop the hood and locate your coil covers.

On the driver side, release the small gray tab from the PCV connection on the inlet elbow.

Rotate the PCV hose and then release the tab on the valve cover.

Set this aside.

Pull up on the coil cover to remove it from the valve cover.

On the passenger side, release the tab on the PCV connection and position it out of the way.

Rotate the oil fill cap counter-clockwise to remove it.

Pull up on the coil cover to remove and then reinstall the oil cap.

Set the coil covers on a work bench.

The plates will be side specific in that the passenger side plate will have a small cutout for the PCV connection.

The plates have machined locating rails that sit inside of the coil cover grooves.

Be sure you center the plate side and of course make sure the lettering is reading the same as the coil cover.

Once centered, hold the plate in place and drill one of the corner holes with a five-thirty-second drill bit.

Slide a screw threw through top and then thread on a nut.

Drill another hole in the opposite corner.

Install some hardware.

Drill the remaining holes.

Remove the hardware and plate.

Clean up any shavings and then debur the inside of the coil cover.

Now you can fully install the cover plate.

You will need to clearance the plastic casting on the backside of the driver side coil cover in order for the nyloc nut to properly seat.

Install all of the hardware.

Hold the button-head machine screw with a two and a half millimeter Allen key.

Tighen the nyloc nut with a 7mm socket or wrench.

Repeat this for the other hardware.

Repeat these steps for the other side.

Reinstall the covers and be sure to reconnect the PCV connections.

After that, you’re all finished!
