I don't think there was a 5-speed that came with the Coyotes (Mustang or F-150). I'm really hoping it's the MT-82, and I score a 6-speed.
Or if it ends up being a T-3650, I'm ok with that too.....for $200.

Then I'll press into a manual swap with summer, once the Marauder comes online.

Fairly certain the mt-82 will bolt up. People don't like them because of their 375lb-ft rating but thats perfect for a 4.6. Also the spread on the ratios is a little better between the low ratios and the overdrive ratio.

Back at it.
Looks like it blew a head gasket. Motor kept loosing coolant, but wasn't burning it, leaking it externally, and the oil didn't look like chocolate milk. Oil pressures were all over they place at idle, and even up to 1500+rpm. Kept overheating like crazy, even after starting it and driving it for less than 2 minutes.
I have another motor, 73k PI motor out of a 03 CVPI. Unfortunately, it has the iron block, but at this time, I can get it back on the road and put some miles down.
And get ready for the GGP again.

Pulled the entire A/C system out yesterday; in one piece. Didn't even have to bleed it! Still pressurized, lol.

That was good for a 41.6 lbs reduction. A maybe a horsey or two.

Time to grab a few parts and get this motor back in. Kinda sucks having to put the iron block in after having the aluminum block, but I can only do so much right now.

really you overheated the block it's warped for sure it's aluminum after all
hope you had some warranty as you just have scrap aluminum on your hands

I built it from a junkyard motor or two. No real warranty to speak of, lol.

But hey, it'll make a sweet table or something one day.
