if you do it right it will last a long time, be plenty durable, and even allow you to repair it as needed. for $350 you could buy the spray system and the paint. thats what i did, and i love it. it's been about a year, and it is still in excellent shape.

doing it with the gallons is so much better then the rattle cans. too many (teenagers) do a half er...hearted job, and it shows. done right it will last and be easy to peel.

Well...####...

What started as a "simple" HCI swap developed into a Holley HP EFI install that quickly escalated into gathering parts for a coil near plug setup so I can run a forward facing throttle body... Going to be sweet but not quite as sweet as @kbscobravert

Cast of characters:

Holley HP EFI
Holley 7" LCD display
Steinman Performance cluster for LCD
Leash Electronics relay box
D585 coil packs
64bit Tuning cam sensor
Innovators West flying magnet balancer

Big thank you to @irwinner for helping me sort the parts list out and answering my relentless questions!

Did I mention I have meaningfully started the HCI swap yet? About that, I did order a set of adjustable pushrods and checking springs to sort the pushrods for the new cam. Don't want to get it wrong!

Also, I installed some new brakes but don't have pads yet. Installed a "bash bar" to make room for an oil cooler and catch can. The following parts will also be installed this winter:

MM PHB/HD TA
MM k-member
MM RA3 struts
MM RA2 shocks
MM F/R coil overs
MM Adjustable front/rear swaybars
'00 R steering rack

Lost all enthusiasm for this project. Totaled my '98 GT daily driver 16-November-2016 and bought a '15 F150 02-December-2016. Decided to sell the entire powertrain to a friend and move in a different direction.

anything before the coyote is old school.....IMHO
Yeah, Coyote's are the #### but I agree; It's nice to see something 'era specific' instead of the 'easy way out'. I have a basic, ported Eaton swap with 2.76/+4 pullies, a much better heat exchanger and an E85 fuel system to install once I get some other stuff sorted.

Since I fail at updating this thread with any semblance of regularity, I'll fill y'all in with pictures..

1 & 2) First, I stripped the car down and swapped in the entire wiring harness from the donor Cobra. Then, I swapped out the old QA1 k-member for a new MM piece. Also, swapped out all of the brake lines, ABS pump, and installed hydroboost. Lastly, installed the interior from my 98 GT and put in a Corbeau Forza Sport fixed back seat.

3) My buddy started building the 4.6 in his wife’s kitchen and we finished it in my workshop. Moments away from installing the engine, we snapped an ARP flywheel bolt off in the crank. :| That prompted a reversal of events to extract the crank. About a month later, we re-assembled the engine and dropped here in.

4) Currently the engine swap is into the nickle and dime, “punch list” phase:


  1. Finalize the coolant system COMPLETE
  2. Install the AC lines COMPLETE
  3. Affix the engine grounds COMPLETE
  4. "nut & bolt" check everything
  5. Introduce engine fluids, leak test fuel system
  6. Install x-pipe and driveshaft COMPLETE
  7. Introduce ATF and install shifter
  8. Function test, flash start-up tune, first start, leak test again
  9. Put it on the highway to seat the rings and hope for the best

5) Didn’t like the PS setup so I converted it over to AN hoses. You can see the various MM front suspension bits. That is a 2000 Cobra R steering rack.
