Installing a Coyote 5.0-Liter, DOHC engine in a late-model Mustang is currently one of the most popular engine swaps available. As a result of the increased popularity, the NMRA recently added a Coyote-only eliminator class to its heads-up drag-race lineup. The merging of Coyotes and lightweight ‘86-’93 Mustangs induces huge grins, due to outrageous power to weight ratios that rival most modern supercars.
To help customers take advantage of this opportunity, ProCharger has been meticulously working on their own transplant kit for some time now. Long time ProCharger employee Clint Rucker graciously offered up his Coyote powered ‘87 LX for R&D. This Fox features plenty of go-fast goodies including a D-1SC ProCharger, BBK headers, Magnaflow exhaust, a T-56 Transmission and 3.73 gears in the rear end. This array of parts is good for 9 psi of intercooled boost and has turned the rollers at 640 wheel horsepower and 504 foot pounds of torque. These are substantial power numbers while also taking into account the vehicles’ modest 2750 pound curb weight.
Once again ProCharger expands its Fox body product lineup with a Coyote transplant bracket assembly option, providing a clean installation and mounting position that accounts for the reduced hood clearance on the Fox body Mustangs.
