I do not think any bell housing will bolt the 3.5l Ecoboost to a T5. Given that the Ecoboost will make nearly 500lbs-ft of torque with just dual exhaust, I think the T5 would last seconds in 3rd gear.

The RM-8086 bell housing bolts in to a TKO600 style transmission (TKO, 3550, etc). The RM-8087 works for a T56.

Which MM K-member do I need for a 95?
Do you have any remote idea whether a STB would fit, or whether I need one? (Daily Driver)


Will an ecoboost V6 bolt in to a 98 4.6 k-member?

MMKM-2.1.

There are no engine mounts that I'm aware of that will even be close to working.

I would order the k-member without the engine mount structure on it, and without the diagonal brace tubes in the side windows. Purchase some of the aluminum engine mount brackets from a 2011-14 V6 Mustang. These will bolt directly onto the Ecoboost 3.5l V6. Then bolt any 2005-14 engine mounts (hyra, poly, solid, etc) onto the aluminum brackets. Position the engine in the car, then build support structure from the k-member to the engine mounts. This will be fairly simple since the mounts will end up just above the 1" x 2" FCA tab tubes on the k-member. I've modeled all of this and it fits quite well, but I don't think it is going to get built at this point.

Someone has to make this swap possible. This will be a huge success to ford period. Everybody wants to swap the Eco boost. When I first bought my 2011 F150 Eco, that was one of the first things my friends and I talked about. Future of drag racing could be lead with a 6 cyl turbo truck engine. Yes I know the GN had one, but FORDs is way better. My friend has worked a swap and turbo using the mustangs 6cyl. On computer it made great power. I hope to see someone racing one soon. Also for the LS swap.. it has taken over. It is not small...ever track has a stupid Chevy junk swap. The old 5.0 can not compete because if the weak block. And aftermarket 5.0 cost large amount of cash compared to a LS swap. These are not going away soon. I can not wait to see some normal guy get this swap done. good luck fellas

x2,
... and don't forget, ecoboost is far less harm to the environment than the coyote, and magnitudes better than our windsors, so to help save the planet, I plan on an ecoboost swap.

Strictly to save the planet, of course.

I realize this is a mostly old thread, but you can buy A LOT of fuel to drive a mildly built easy 300+ hp (even a built 350+ hp) at the wheels 302 everyday for the cost of self modifying and engineering and tuning a 2.3EB or 3.5 EB or 5.0 Coyote swap. The economics just aren't there.

Cool swaps for sure, but fooling yourself on it being a way to save money on fuel....don't believe that.

My wife wants me to build her an eco-swapped fox. Lol I have a habit of finishing builds on an absurdly low budget (flipping parts, buying used, etc.), and I feel like I could probably make something like this happen relatively cheap. I know the controls situation will be a tough one though.

Nothing about Mustangs is about "saving money".

Do you mind if I ask about the cost?
Sounds like a really sweet project. (fwiw I'm now investigating electric. We'll see if anything ever happens.)

AJ is using the 3.7l version of the MT82 because it bolts right on, is cheap and will handle the power of a detuned engine. He has to detune the engine to be within the power to weight and torque to weight rules of AI. For virtually anyone else doing the swap, they should use a TKO500/600 or a T56. The MT82 is not going to last long with the engine making 500lbs-ft of torque.
Is this Available for purchase yet? Does it use factory EB engine mounts? Doing a 2.7 into 95.

You could probably pick up the correct stock K member for $50 at the JY.

The regular cab 4x2 F150 3.5 EcoBoost weighs 29lbs more than the Coyote version. Depending on cab and box configuration, the EcoBoost truck weighs up to 90lbs more than the Coyote truck.

https://www.ford.com/trucks/f150/models/f150-lariat/

If you believe terrible useless internet engine weights (you shouldn't, because no one standardizes on wet/dry/accessories/flywheel/etc.), the Coyote weighs 430lbs. So the assembled EB would be 460-500lbs.

There's a build thread here on Corral with a ton of good info on the 3.5 swap.

https://forums.corral.net/forums/mem...verything.html

He weighed the 3.5 minus fluids, wiring harness, intake plumbing (including intercooler), and flywheel at 426lbs.
