    1992 LX Hatch Coyote Swap in Progress

    So Dave and I are finally getting to our coyote swap. I have pics I will have to get hosted but it'll have to wait till I get time. We've already painted a stock 4.6 kmember and installed it, and we have removed all the EECIV wiring for the computer. We are going to use the FRPP control pack as I have the box codes for all them now. It's going to be a coyote 5spd. Stay tuned for more updates as we progress.

    Yessir. He's stoked about it as well. I can't wait to drive it. Gear swap is in the future as well.

    Awesome Mike, I need to come up and learn a few things for m project. Wish you guys were a little closer. Where do you guys get your control packs? I am on the brink of ordering mine.

    I'm a motorsport dealer. I just order from them. I also sell holley efi which is another good way to do the swap.

    Love it. People go nuts over coyote swapped fox bodies. They sell at crazy prices too.

    Yep, we're going to get it all done and go from there. I can't wait to drive it, that's for sure.

    More progress last night. We got the controls pack routed and made mounts for computer. Got the accelerator pedal mounted using that cool billet adapter that somebody makes, can't remember, have to ask Dave where we got it. Rerouted factory wiring, got a lot of little bs done, it's about ready for an engine to sit down in it.

    I bet it was Steve Moberly at Scram Speed that you got the pedal bracket from.

    We used a 99 up modular Kmember. Dave cleaned it up and painted it. Had to drill out/elongate the reaer 4 holes in the kmember so they would line up with the fox holes.


    He painted the lower control arms as well. Installed the power steering rack, it's already got bump steer kit on it.

    The fun pedal going in. Along with the Hydraboost being installed as well. We had to drill one extra hole in the hydraboost for it to fit onto the fox firewall. The brake lines that go from our 93 cobra master cylinder to the metering block were exactly opposite on the 98 master cylinder. So we have to cut the lines and make new ones, but we have all the fittings.

    Think we are going to use these wheels on it. I like the way they look with that color.

    We got the engine out of my coupe and up on the stand. We took the engine up to a car wash and sprayed it off so it would look better, nice and clean. I started by removing the balancer so I could get the front cover off. I already took the intake manifold off and the valve covers before this pic. The puller is a blue point unit that I got from snap on so I could pull these balancers. Comes in really handy. I've used it a bunch.

    Pulled the duct tape pan off(another story), and the engine is very clean inside. Looks good under the valve covers as well.
