2011 Ford Mustang GT COYOTEWHY NAME IT "COYOTE"?On all of Ford’s engine programs, they use code names because they want to keep everything under wraps in case there is a leak from any part of the company. For this specific program, they held a contest among a small group to come up with a name. It was as simple as sending out a mass email to the group for name ideas. The one they decided to take was from John Norcott, who was one of their V-8 engine planners. He came up with “Coyote” because it originated with A.J. Foyt’s race team. Foyt had a 4 valve V8 back in 69’ and was the 1st Ford 4 valve ever made. Since Ford’s main goal for the Coyote was performance, they liked the idea of it being linked to an Indy engine. There was a big debate among the group between naming it either Road Runner, Coyote, and other versions of Coyote but ultimately settled on the Coyote name that we love today. ABOUT THE COYOTE ENGINEThe Coyote had to stay close to the physical size of the 4.6L and share specifications such as deck height, bore spacing, bell housing bolt pattern, etc. in order for this engine to utilize the existing modular production line tooling. This Coyote engine produced around the same amount of power as its competitors but with a much smaller displacement. So, the block had to be strengthened and was done by using webbing to reinforce the casting instead of increasing the thickness of the walls. It also features the new 4 valve DOHC (double overhead cam) cylinder heads that have shifted the camshafts outboard. Also, the Coyote is Ford’s first implementation of its CTA (cam-torque-activated) Ti-VCT (Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing) in a V8 engine. This allows the PCM (powertrain control module) to advance and retard intake and exhaust cam timing that is independent of each other. This provides improved power, reduced emissions, and fuel economy. This is all assembled in Ford’s Essex Engine Plant in Windsor, Ontario.Look At The Last Pic For The Old Damage, Car Is Like New Now for more info call 954 394 3033 PLEASE ONLY BID IF YOU ARE A REAL BUYER, TO MANY NO PAYMENTS THANKS
