If you are following along with our Mustang Coyote Swap project in the LatemodelRestoration.com SN-95 race car - you are in luck. Today is the second part of the swap. The first major component to doing a Ford 5.0 Coyote swap into any vehicle is to figure out how you want to route the Ford Racing control pack ( M-6017-A504V ) in the engine bay. Because we know there are so many different ways for this to be done we just wanted to highlight how we ran ours. Some people may want to hide wiring or locate ECU and data link connection in other places. With our Mustang we decided that having easy access to it all in the engine bay is best seeing this is a race car.
Next we addressed the fuel system modifications needed before we install the motor. Also while we were running the control pack wiring we decided we would go ahead and mount the drive by wire pedal assymbly using the SVE pedal bracket ( SVE-9729PB ). Stay tuned for the next update - its a big one! Installing the 5.0L Coyote engine into the Mustang!!

Quick progress update on our 97 Cobra Mustang Coyote Swap. We've got our Ford Racing control pack harness run we've got the gas pedal in place and we've got the fuel system pretty much lined out the way we want it. So let’s show you what we did. We've bent some angle brackets and mounted the pcm to the passenger side fender apron.

We ran the pcm harness up behind the fender apron and around the front of the core support. Quick fast in dirty we mounted the fuse box and data link connector under the hood we're not a 100% with that. We
do want to get it inside the car. For the Mustang fuel system we mounted a regulator over here on the firewall. Took the factory fuel lines, cut them down and put compression fitting with AN adapter and fuel line adapter so that we we can run braided fuel line and we have the braided line run over where it's going to connect to the fuel rail.

Let's hop inside the card check out what we did with the pedal. Using our SVE pedal bracket, the Ford Racing control pack pedal bolted right into the Mustang. It is gonna work perfectly. We did have to bend a little bit of metal on the way to get it to plug in. On keep in mind this is not the end all be all of coyote swaps. There are several liberties we can take on this Mustang that you may not be able to take on your Mustang because we are working on a race car. We just want to illustrate how easy it is to put a 5.0L coyote motor in any late model Mustang.

The Ford Racing control pack is clearly labeled and comes with intense instructions so it's pretty clear as to where everything goes. On our next checkup we're gonna show you how the motor goes into the Cobra. So subscriber to our YouTube channel and check out LatemodelRestoration.com for all of your Mustang coyote swap parts!!
