We have all looked into completing a Coyote Swap of our own into our beloved Mustangs. In this article, we will touch on the differences between both the F150 and Mustang Coyote Engines!
In 2011 Ford debuted the all-new 5.0L V8 Engine in the Ford F150 Coyote. Replacing the 5.4L and 4.6L V-8 engine options from the previous years. Even though this motor's compression ratio is lower than the Mustangs, it still made decent power from the factory.
This all-new 5.0 Coyote F150 made an impressive 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. This was achieved using a smaller intake cam for more torque, different valve job on exhaust valve for increased cooling in high loads, exhaust manifolds, and obviously the tune.
The Mustang Coyote Engine was debuted in 2011 also in the all-new redesigned Mustang. This Mustang specific 5.0L Coyote boasted higher compression, 11.0:1 to be exact. Which is .5 higher than the F150 coyote engine.
The Mustang 5.0L Coyote made 412 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque in its Gen 1 motor. Unlike the F150 Coyote, the 11-12 Mustang included piston cooling jets. However, Ford dropped the cooling jets in 2013 stating "it wasn't needed".
