Turbocharged Coyote/6R80 Swap, Build/Discussion Thread, Pics, info inside!

I figured it's time to start the official build thread finally! Many of you here have participated in my discussion thread about the subject, located here:

http://www.mercurymarauder.net/forum...ad.php?t=97655

As promised, I planned to start a dedicated build thread documenting the swap and turbo kit build/tuning process. Now that things are under way, it's time to start the appropriate thread regarding the matter.

Here is where it begins!

Disassembly of the stock Marauder has commenced. The history of the car has been well documented in the previous thread, so I won't elaborate on that. This process, starts with a perfect and very beautiful example of the Marauder model. End goals are to retain EVERYTHING fully functional, just as I did my turbocharged, chevy powered Vic.

Day 1:




The build for this car is as follows at the present time:

2012 F150 5.0L Coyote
6R80 trans from above donor
Turbocharged with air-to-air FMIC as I did on my Vic, via custom made turbo kit produced by myself, as with my other builds.
Tuned with HP Tuners by myself, as with other builds.
All fabrication/wiring completed by myself as with past builds.

I ordered the entire donor pullout, which should show in the coming days. I am starting removal of the stock engine/transmission this weekend. It was posted for sale in the appropriate section a while back here on mm.net, and currently has a buyer.

This project will happen in 2 phases. The first phase, I will get the setup in and running all stock, naturally aspirated. This will allow me to work out some of the integration bugs I anticipate, as well as get a solid foundation on tuning before proceeding (I have only tuned forced inducted LS setups prior).
If time permits this year, there will be dragstrip passes all stock. I have also ran the car as it sits now, all stock, which will give a good baseline on what the Coyote/6A improves over stock.

After that is completed, I will move on to the turbo kit fabrication and phase 2.

The process should really start to take off in the next two weeks once parts arrive, and I anticipate to have some test fit pictures by next weekend at this point.

I will only be happy if this combo can produce the same, if not more, than my turbo Chevy Crown Vic did. On 14psi/race gas, it was around 600 RWHP.

From what i'm finding with the Coyote, those numbers should be very possible. Seems the 5.0L is pretty legit on boost.

Haha, indeed. It literally happened at the last minute after a member here informed me of PBH's Coyote swap accessory brackets, in addition to me finding a full Coyote pullout will all the fixin's, on cheap to say the least.

There is an LS thread on my Vic over on crownvic.net, if you want to pursue that route as well

Can't wait to see this project go forward. I don't have skills or know how to do this, so I'm living vicariously through yours. It will be very interesting to see how the car performs with the more modern drivetrain.

The LS turbo would be a lot easier than the Coyote. Did you get the DBW throttle pedal?

Idk about that.

I spent a lot of time weighing the conversion. Considering you have to make an alt bracket to lower the alternator on an LS (can't use a high-mount bracket as then you get in the way of the turbo placement), fabricate both the A/C and power steering lines (Coyote setup uses stock Marauder accessories in the stock location), and buy motor mount adapters, it's a pretty close tie.

Both require the same amount of fabrication from that point onward.

But, I cannot say for sure until I complete this installation, and compare it to my Vic LS swap.

On the pedal assembly, I believe I have found a solution (and it does not involve an F150/Mustang pedal, and retains the stock Marauder adjustable pedals). You see, the pedal is simply a potentiometer, it gets a ground, 5v reference and has a signal out circuit. The F150/Mustang used a 2 track potentiometer, whereas a 2005+ Grand Marquis uses a 3 track. My intentions are to install a 2005+ grand marquis adjustable pedal assembly, and make the appropriate wiring changes. More on that when I get there.

conversion

Didn't look for it but wasn't that particular conversion done with a manual tranny not a 6 speed auto?


Suggestion ---its fair to assume new components will have to be fabricated for the latest conversion with 6 speed auto
If its feasible please consider making some extra parts to sell to others who want the same setup.

If you are interested, i have a few mustang coyote intakes with t-bodies rails injectors

I bought a few take offs from a dealer swapping to blowers


My 2011 5.0 auto mustang is a blast to drive, that automatic trans is one of the best attributes of the car. Putting a coyote in the marauder is awesome man! Can't wait to see what it looks like in there...
