We recommend breaking this crate engine in properly. Late Model Restoration will not be held accountable for any damages that may occur due to improper break-in methods. Normal break in conditions consist of 500 miles at normal operating conditions.
FRPP did indeed stop supplying the lift hooks and they are not available through Ford Service Parts. If installing this engine in a 79-04 Mustang, the common method is to start by removing the intake manifold. Using angle iron and an adjustable engine load leveler like in the link below.

we performed an install on our retired bondurant race car. we replaced its blown up 4.6 4v. check the project car page for a list of steps and videos that follow the install. here's a link to the project car page.

That engine would NOT be a direct swap for the 4.6 in your 2006 GT. There is not a Ford Racing 3 Valve crate engine that is a direct bolt in swap for your 2006 4.6 GT. The M-6007-M50 Coyote 5.0 will physically fit in your 2006 but many other items such as the engine controls pack (M6017A504V), transmission, clutch, driveline and exhaust will have to be changed as well. You may do a web search on S197 Coyote Swap to gain a better understanding of what is involved in changing over to that crate engine to your 2006 GT.

Yes you can do a coyote swap and still have a/c. If you are wanting A/C and power steering, you will have to run the Coyote front accessory drive brackets we offer under part number SVE-8511C. this will use the accessories off of either a 96-04 4.6L 2V or 4V and allow them to work on the coyote. The difficulty in hooking up the A/C is having the lines made. You will need to have custom A/C lines made to hook up to the compressor.

What would it take to put this engine in my 1994 croba? I think it would be cheaper than building my motor I have now to get what I can out of the coyote motor so please let me know how hard and what I'm looking at before I start. Thanks for your help!!

Here a link to everything that would be related to the swap, and if you look at the very bottom of the page you will see the swap we did on a sn cobra.

You will need to convert to a 4.6 style K member. If you click the link below, this will take you to what we recommend and also help guide you on the conversion. We did this on an SN car, but the same motions will apply to your car as well.

Does this engine comes with a manual transmission flywheel? If it does,what the sizes of flywheel. Can I use my 2000 GT T45 transmission? It has a 10.5" clutch. I'm planning on getting a new clutch, do I get a 10.5" or can I use a 11". I know, I'm a pain!!!
Asked by NELSON O. from PORT SAINT LUCIE | Comment 0 0
Your T45 will bolt right up to the block as the bellhousing bolt pattern is the same. For the flywheel, you'll need an 8-bolt version like the RAM-1545. At that point you can use either a 10.5" or an 11" clutch for 96-04 4.6. Being you are replacing the clutch anyway, no reason not to get the extra surface area of the 11".
