  • Coyote/Falcon

    ​ Well I would love to put this in the $5000 challenge but that won't happen. I have had the Falcon for 14 years and haven't done anything with it. I got a free disassembled 2012 Coyote from a friend and I had a rebuilt world class T5 sitting around waiting for a project so I thought I should put this together. Steve!!

      Re: Coyote/Falcon

      Only thought from me is a T5 is not likely a great match for a Coyote engine unless you never intend to drive it aggressively.

      Otherwise, get after it and post lots of pics.

            I know a guy with a couple falcons, I assume step one will be removal of the shock towers and install of some modern front end with rack and pinion etc.
            Coyotes are sweet but WIDE.
            I have to Echo BBR - unless you never plan to run slicks, or even sticky street tires, the T5 will be short lived with the power output of a Coyote.

            What EFI control set up are you going to use?

              ​ Well here is another try at posting pictures. I didn't change a thing when I was posting pictures of the Bonneville Zephyr so I don't understand why they don't come up this time. I know the T5 is a little light duty but I can't get a very big tire in the stock wheel well so I think it will be OK for now. This one is just going on the street as I have my Zephyr and Model "A" to race Click image for larger version

                I have a falcon, and a spare T5 looking forward to seeing how you make the coyote fit

                  thinking a torch, chop saw, and potentially dynamite will be involved.

                    Naw - just getting rid of the shock towers (Mustang II, other options.....).

                      Check out Welder series - best bang for the buck chassis and suspension parts I've found, he's got a nice mustang 2 front end set up. I have a stock M2 in the front of mine, and have no issues with the manual steering, for this light of a package - I don't think power steering would be worth the hassle or cost. I also kept the stock wheel wells, it makes the look of the car, IMHO. Great looking delivery!

                        I should get a kickback from them, I honestly wonder how many thousand of their kits have been sold because I blogged them years ago on the Fiat (and I still get people asking me about it)

                          Tell me more about what you're starting with car wise? Is that a 61-63 Sedan Delivery?

                            For you people that didn't get the pictures, it is a 1963 tudor Falcon wagon. I have ordered a TCI front suspension kit as they make a kit for pre64 Falcons. I also have a possible deal cooking as I found a fellow with a small block ford looking for a T5 and he wants to trade a 2010 Mustang 5spd with integral bell housing that bolts to the coyote engine so I will see if that works out. At the moment I am working on an oil filter adapter for a remote oil filter and cooler as the Coyote one is too bulky.

ID:	1218905 Hope this picture up loads as I traded the T5 in the foreground for the T3650 out of a 2010 Mustang. I am going to have to come up with some weird shift linkage or have a guy in the back seat shift for me!!
