Everything You Need in One Package

Sean & Mike & 88 Mustang

For those of you who are considering swapping the engine in your Fox-body Mustang, Sean Hyland Motorsport has a complete range of choices and options for you that will save you time and money, because we have figured out all of the hard stuff for you and all you have to do is order the parts, follow the instructions and benefit from our experience.  Of course the featured performer in this show is the Ford 5.0 L V8 Coyote engine. Ford Racing’s all-aluminum 5.0L Mustang crate engine is a modern 5.0L 32-valve DOHC V-8 that uses advanced features like Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) to deliver 420 horsepower @ 6500 rpm and 390 ft.-lb.+ of torque @ 4250 rpm (with premium fuel). The lightweight aluminum cylinder block features cross-bolted main bearing caps and thick main bearing bulkheads for bottom-end strength. Optimized oil drainback and windage control improve high-rpm performance.  We put this engine and all the necessary pieces into a value package that we sell for $10,795.

Transmission Solutions for the Fox-body/Coyote

There are a number of ways to connect your new Coyote engine to the transmission.  We have outlined three options below.

Using the Stock T5 transmission

If this is your preferred option you will need:

  1. A Quick Time bellhousing, (#RM-6080).     $599

This bellhousing adapts the stock T5 Fox-body transmission to the Coyote engine and uses  transmission and retains the original clutch cable.
