It is time to show off the final touches on our Project Coyote Swap Bondurant Cobra. To finish off the project, we added all new decals. We got rid of the SVE 10th anniversary wheels and replaced them with a set of 18” SVE Drift Wheels. The combination of new wheels and decals really brought this race car back to life. We weren’t done there! We added a new set of black headlights to finish off the exterior.
Just because the engine swap was done, didn’t mean we were done with the performance modification. The help control the newly found power, we added a Ford Racing Brembo big brake kit (m-2300-x). If you are thinking about a Coyote engine swap for your SN-95 or Fox Body Mustang look no further than LatemodelRestoration.com for all your coyote engine conversion parts!
Big THANK YOU to the following companies for all the help with this project!
We've crossed the finish line with our former Bondurant '97 Cobra Project Coyote Swap. All the final touches are in place and she's ready to be turned loose. The underhood came together quite nicely with some of Scott Hubbard's signature fabrication work. All new decals were applied and instead of 18-inch silver SVE Drift wheels replaced the 17-inch SVE 10th Anniversary style wheels. The front brakes were upgraded as well to a Ford Racing M-2300-X Brembo brake kit. We even slid in a new set of headlights.
Without companies like Ford Racing, BVK, Moroso, Stifler's, QuickTime, and [INAUDIBLE], a swap like this would be significantly more complicated.
