Coyote powered jk

So I had dinner with my business partner who is a die hard Ford man and master ford mechanic. We were talking and he was saying we have (my) lsa powered jeep. We have customers coming in for a 5.3 and 6.2 swap.

So he said I bought a 5.0 coyote motor and automatic today and am going to have the guys pull my body and factory 3.6 out next week.

Anyways wanted to see what everyone thought about it?

This will be interesting. Out of a newer F150 I am assuming?

It's cool and all, but unless you do a bit of work to it, it's only making 365hp.

That's a rather wide engine isn't it?

2 years and $200 000.00, unless you already have the programming interface figured.

Right. The reason people do LS's is because it has already been figured out.

The reason people do 4BT's is because it has already been figured out.

It takes a lot of money to do everything right, companies like motec, etc have the cash up front to do it.

I am all for new cool stuff, but OP needs to know what he is getting into. Today's motors have so much electronic crap to deal with. For a minimum of 65hp gain, it doesnt seem worth it.

Oh, I'm sure he has a pretty good idea of where that road leads.

I LOVE the Coyote 5.0. We use them at work in the trucks, they work really well. Also, my father has the slightly hotter 5.0 in his S550 Mustang with a 6 speed manual behind it... that thing goes. It seems like it makes great power everywhere except really low in the RPM range... which for a car, not so bad. And his is 100% stock.

NOW, that said, those quad cam V8's are wiiiiiiiide. I don't know how comfortable they would fit in the engine bay of a Jeep JK. But if it fits, all bueno there.

This would be a good start -----> Ford Performance Mustang in.Coyote in. 5.0l 4v Crate Engine Control Pack M-6017-A504VA (11-14 GT) - Free Shipping Except I'm not sure how well it would mate into the BCM of the JK. As much as I'd love to hear the Ford sing, I would still like to be able to have a radio.

Or go with the newer Voodoo. Yes, it's down on power to the Trinity, but 8250RPM and the sound of the flat plane crank exhaust note are nice trade off's. Hell, I'm sure it wouldn't be scared of a little forced induction either


You have to top the LSA JK somehow....

Like has been mentioned, it's going to be interesting seeing it get shoehorned in due to its width. And I'm glad I don't have to figure out the electronics. Being in Texas do you have to worry about emissions compliance?

They do respond well to boost, though.

The engine is really only a slight but wider than a Hemi (I believe by a 1/2"). Will likely require the steering shaft be moved as it is in a Hemi swap.

I suspect they are not going to try and integrate the electronics, but rather run the engine stand alone as Genright did in Terremotto, using the SmartWire system. Not the cheapest route as you have to upgrade other items to run outside of the JK loop, but really cool and opens the door to other engines.

Edit: With a Ford engine, you buy controls from Ford. Using the setup Genright did with an LS is sweet though.

Im going to get keith on here and let him explain what his idea is. I don't know all of the technicals he just wanted to see what the pulse was on ford vs chevy power plant. He was saying the abs and traction control programming is pretty standard across the manufactures. I don't want to misquote so ill let him jump in on this. He did say he was going to use a mustang motor because of the forged internals and better cam

Did you see who the OP was ???? he just dropped 200k into a 65k JK and waited three years for it

I feel like instead of a rich kids of instagram its just of JKO.

On my personal LSA jeep I have to do the cage still, but what I'm doing is cutting the x braces out of the middle and ran 2 parallel bars down the center. It will get a full new cage this year. Everything is hooked up and functional, arbs/lights, air lock sway bar. the sway bar is absolutely sweet. I installed some new genright aluminum fenders and aluminum inner fenders also.

On keiths jeep they are prepping a set of 1 ton axles and installing them with an atlas when he pulls the body off. Ive been on the road for work so ill stop by the shop on friday and see whats going on around there.

all-due-respect, @bluewave but if that were all that was left after this much time I would pull something like a Gurney Bubble and have a headsized arch welded into the top of that bloody cage and then go beat the ever living shit outta that Jeep, just because of ....well, everything about the build?

I believe his question was more along the lines of:
ARE THEY STILL DOING THE FUCKING COYOTE MOTOR? Lol
