      I really would like to hear this! My surround sound is standing by for duty...

      I'm guessing you'll push about 390hp, 370lb tq at the rear wheels...

      Well the final results are in for the dyno. Made 414 rwhp 414 rwtq. That was definitely higher than I expected. That's with just a custom cold air intake, custom dual exhaust, and a good tune.

      The truck is a screamer now, and I'm still trying to get used to the high rpm sound. It's a little strange to hear a Mustang screaming at 7000 rpm with the rear sliding glass down and the exhaust tone filling up the cabin, when you're driving an Explorer. It's awesome to say the least. Definitely getting some looks from people as the truck pulls up to a stoplight.

      Even though the Coyote is a 302 it's a completely new beast from the old 302s though. So the size could vary quite a bit, and it sounds like it does.

      Is the new 5.8L S/C engine in the 2013 Cobra also the coyote? Just bigger?

      No, it's just a bored out version of the aluminum 5.4 from the 2011-12 Mustang Shelby GT500. Compression has been raised, TVS blower is now on and a few other things to get that sweet 650HP rating:D

      Yes, the gauges are working great. Got all the lights out on the dash. All gauges work as they used to. :D

      Truck is driving great, got some bugs worked out of the Ford Racing control pack harness. They evidently left out some wires and after some research, was able to run the wires and correct some stalling issues I had when the clutch went in. I've been driving it around quite a bit now and absolutely love it.

      How well would this work with an auto? Does the FRPP kit have an auto option? Reason I ask is I would not want to loose the awd on my truck. I had bough parts to do a Tr6060/t-case , but will never find time in my life to finish that project!

      this swap is quite intriguing to me!

      Congrats. Truck looks great.

      Not sure if I missed it, but does this ST have a transfer case being the 6 spd?

      This one's a RWD model, not AWD.

      My curiosity has gotten the best of me. What pedal assembly or just clutch pedal did you use. I find it interesting since our chassis/body never had a manual trans option. Bitchin' fit and finish into the console though!!! I myself have been considing on doing an Ecoboost set up from an F150 great unique project...:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

      Update!
      Just installed the 4.30 gears in the Adrenalin to compensate for the low gear ratio. With this setup on 30" tall stock tires, the stock 3.55's were terrible. The 4.30's take the truck to the equivelent of a Mustang with 3.73's. The truck feels WAY better now, pulls out from a stop better, gets into the power band better, and the best part... burnouts!

      Thanks for the kudos.

      The pedal arrangement I'm keeping hush hush for now. A lot of man hours into that setup. However the gas pedal is the pedal that comes with the Ford Racing controls pack, since you have to use a specific pedal from their kit.

      It would be really interesting to just sit and talk to you about this project. I've been watching your progress from the beginning with this truck and I must say you've come a long way and it's been quite impressive.

      Great Job :salute:

      I would think the pedals from a Ranger would work since the Sport Trac and Explorer are both based on that truck. At any rate, great job on bringing your dream to reality. It is exactly the way I would want my Sport Trac to be.
