Coyote Engines for Sale

The Ford Modular Approach

Ford’s modular engine is their OHC (overhead camshaft) V8 and V10 gasoline-powered small block engine family, amongst them is the 5.0 L Coyote V8. The modular engine moniker refers to Ford’s modular approach to the setup of tooling and casting stations in their Windsor and Romeo engine manufacturing plants. Their aim is to achieve significant increase in speed for changeovers when switching from one engine platform to another among the Modular engine family.


5.0 L Coyote V8

The engine is based on the architecture of the 4.6L and 5.4L Modular V8’s in response to their competitors at the time. Key aspect of improvement was to maintain a physical size relative to the already popular 4.6L and 5.4L predecessors as well as sharing similar specifications. All of this, so that Ford can take advantage of their modular production line tooling. Resulting in an engine that has a much smaller displacement to their competitors while producing roughly the same amount of power. Today, Coyote engine swaps remain popular within Ford vehicles. Special note on the lightweight Fox Body Mustangs which become blazing speed machines after a Coyote swap.

Modular Engine

Many parts of the engine were designed to easily fit in other modular engine family. This essential factor had allowed innumerable creative approaches to be taken towards a Coyote engine swap as best suited for a motorist’s needs.


Parts Considerations

There are a few parts worthy of mentioning before performing a Coyote swap. Oil pan replacement on a Fox Body is notable because of the sump pan location difference. New transmission is another upgrade to consider since the Coyote could easily produce twice the power the older stock bodies were designed to handle.
