Here are a few pics of my A50XS Coyote in a Factory 5 MkIV roadster.
Those FFR’s were a blast with 250 horses...THAT will be NUTS!!! More pics!!!!
Not too much for posting with captions. I think most are self explanatory. I am in my second year on the build, got the parts in Nov 2017. All new parts, TKO 600, 3.55 trkloc IRS. Wilwood 6 piston front, 4 piston rear. Of course the A50XS is the heart of the whole package. I have been dodging the behind the dash wiring, but have about painted myself into a corner and cannot avoid it now.
I had to put a shallower pan on for ground clearance. The Ford pan was a 12 qt work of art, baffles, dams and sumps. I will try to take a picture. I need to post it for sell anyway.
The Moroso is an 8 qt, so maybe it is up to the task.
Love the build. That Traction-Lok might not last if you launch hard on sticky tires. But for street fun you’ll be fine.
Keep the updates coming!
The heaviest of these models weigh less than 2500 lbs. Hopefully, I can get a decent launch with good tires without frying the clutch pack. Probably more street cruising than straight line track. I hope to get it on the track at Barber Motorsports some day.
Here is the power steering cooler. It is an old Moroso trans filter and cooler. I removed the filter, cleaned it up and plumbed it in the return line. Other builders say the steering needs a cooler and it adds a little more fluid volume.
Here are some poor videos of the engine's first runs.
There is a glimpes of my best mechanic friend. He wanted to see how the trans shifted out. We had to pull the trans that morning, due to the wrong length pivot bolt for the clutch fork. I am using a hyd clutch with external slave cyl. The short cold air tube seems OK, will have to see how it takes to a Lund tune.
Here are a few pics. Been working on getting all the sheet metal installed. I lack a couple of bolt holes for the passenger seat, before pulling them and riveting in the sheet metal. Should have cleaned up the clutter, but that is how it is.
Got the new tires on the Halibrands. Brought the car down to the house, before going back to the shop for more work. Gotta give a lot of thanks to Ed for so much help in getting this far.
Here are some of my latest pics.
Its almost there
I sent some pics to Grundy's for insurance. It is one of the things required for registration/tag.
After insurance, it goes to court house for inspection.
It is still in gelcoat and will be until I can find an experienced body and paint.
