Howdy, newbie here, I have a 1961 Ford Counry Squire that I installed a 2014 Coyote and a 6r80e tranny. I had to use an aftermarket CPU for the tranny becuase at the time of the swap Ford Performance did not make a harness or CPU for the 2014 engine. I am using a Bauman CPU and frankly is sucks. Ford Performance now makes a harness and CPU. Do you think it will just plug and play if I use the Ford?

OP, you actually had this in the right section, but there hasn't been a post update there in a long time. I moved it to the main section for now.

I haven't done a photo shoot, so here are some random pictures. It has a Fat Man front clip with rack & pinion steering, coil overs, Willwood brakes, Dakota digital dash, Audi A8 front seats that are 8 way power with lumbar and heated and cooled. German square weave carpet, vintage a/c, Moon eyes wood steering wheel, Zebra wood door panels and also on the custom console. Ford didn't have an aftermarket harness for the engine, so it took me 1.5 years to make m own. Just when I finished Ford came out with one! Here is a link on Instagram when it was on the dyno 382hp 424 hp torque not bad for stock. I drive my cars, I drove this wagon to from CA to Key West and back. Got 25 MPG a couple of times. I have 182,00+ on my Impala

Such a great car! Our family had a 61 wagon growing up. I remember going across country in it towing a pop up trailer. Prob did 4500 miles and on way back 100 miles from home it burned a piston in the small 6. Went lean for some reason. Summer time dad pulled to side of road. Took out toolbox from back. Pulled head and pan then walked to town. Found a parts store/shop when he told them he was in a hurry as family on side of road parts place was shocked. Had new piston and rings then gave dad a ride back to car just to witness in person. Fixed car drove home and that is last time I remember him working on it. Just saw a pic of that wagon in carport recently. At least I remember it to be a '61. Had a '57 ranch wagon prior to that.

Took me a full year with tons of hours to make my own harness for My last ecoboost swap. 10R80
Would love to see more pics of the wagon. so cool especially being a squire
We always had wagons growing up.

Last wagon I had was a '71 429 Cobra Jet. Pretty rare piece

Following! So sharp! Always wanted a '46 woody or a '46 Sportsman convert.
