Top 10 Coyote Swaps Lead ArtEngine swaps are nothing new. Often Ford fans would swap out smaller engines in favor of more displacement. With the arrival of electronic fuel injection, the concept of swapping injected engines into older Fords became attractive. When modular engines hit the scene, swapping these overhead-cam powerplants was an exotic endeavor.

However, with the arrival of the Coyote 5.0-liter engine and Ford Performance’s supporting Controls Pack PCMs and wiring harnesses, the idea of swapping the cutting-edge V8 into just about any older Ford became a mainstream idea.

Over the years we have seen a lot of cool Coyote swaps; but inrecent times the quality of these combinations seems to get better and better. To celebrate some of these great cars, we put together a non-scientific list of some of our favorites. The idea was to showcase a variety of Mustang model years and levels of modification. Variety, after all, is the spice of life.

We understand that you may have your own personal favorite swap cars that we may not be aware of or could have overlooked. Feel free to let us know about those cars, as we are always looking for great rides to feature. In the meantime, however, we present 10 of our favorite Coyote-swapped ’Stangs of the moment.
