    As much as I admire the Coyote engine, and think it should be swapped into everything on the street, I’m not so sure about RRS.
    It appears from the photos they are going to use coil-over struts in the original shock towers which take up a lot of real estate where there is definitely a limited supply. When adding this much extra horse power there is almost always a need to swap some suspension parts for drivability’s sake.
    TCI (Total Cost Involved) has setups for Chevy and Ford muscle cars, pickups and street rods that remove the shock tower and increase the available room considerably.
    This page would probably even fit the Falcon they are working on…

    • The Coyote is a big engine and any extra room would be useful. Thanks for the tip and suggesting Total Cost Involved. It will be very useful for other readers.

      If you study the RRS strut suspension you will see it does mount to the top of the shock tower but most of the tower can be removed for engine clearance. This system allows the factory designed front end load on the towers instead of the frame rails. A Must.II setup puts the suspension stress on points that were not designed to carry the load. ( unless it is modified)
      The great thing about RRS is that the factory lower control arms and steering can be used. Most large engines in these chassis do not have clearance for a rack and pinion set up. The RRS system will work either way. I know that in my car with a ’70 Boss 302 and headers thT there is no way a rack will fit. The stock ’65 steering is real close but clears.

  2. Autoworks Parts http://www.autoworksparts.com has many parts for the conversions even if they are not on their website. They are doing 3 Coyote swaps right now. I purchased my suspension from them too, they have the AC kits and many other parts you will need. The best customer service as well. On Instagram as Autoworksrestomod they have a twin turbo 64 Mustang with a coyote, check it out

    Thinking of doing a restomod on a ’68 Cougar, using a Coyote engine and a 6 spd.Tremec. Any thoughts on that idea ??
