The owner of this 2006 Ford Crown Victoria sent it to National Speed for a serious performance upgrade. While there the factory 4.6 L 2v V8 was swapped for a 2nd generation 5.0 L Coyote V8. They also replaced the factory four-speed automatic transmission for a 6R80E six-speed automatic transmission. They installed the Coyote and 6R80E using custom mounts, custom Driveshaft Shop driveshaft, and moving the radiator forward one inch. National Speed also retained AC, power steering, factory gauges, and factory column shifter. Once project was complete it went on the dyno and made 397 hp and 374 lb-ft of torque to the wheels.

I have already swapped a Coyote into my original owned 68 F-100 using a aluminum CV front clip and a Horsepoweer by the hour timing covet kit. I also have the US shift controller for the 4r70e which works fine. The down side was having to buy a new Cobra alternator from Ford and have to pay a $75.00 core charge as the alternator mounts backward. This looks like it would cause a radiator clearance problem.
Are there any problems with the Coyote electronics interfacing with the Cv’s electrical control systems?
I am considering a CV or Maurader Coyote swap later and want to know if anyone has used the Volvo electric power steering pump. I saw a Ford truck/Coyote conversion recently with the Volvo pump. The owner said he likes it and it was cheaper than a timing cover conversion.
Merry Christmas, Kenny
