The weight difference is huge . You also save a hundred pounds by switching to a tubular k frame and coil over set up. Which you have to do to get the motor to fit. The crate motor has no emissions, I used bbk long tubes with there x pipe. That are made for the coyote swap.

Awesome job on the coyote swap!

I was looking through your pictures and it looks like you have a 1993 Cobra bumper and side skirts, possibly. It's kind of hard to tell from the pictures.

Do you happen to have any clearer pictures of these modifications? I'm thinking about doing the same to my '87 due to some bumper damage and I think it would give the car an overall cleaner look.

Thanks for your time, I appreciate any information on the subject.

You mentioned a parts list that you could put together that would be greatly appreciated.

The car looks great by the way!
