5.0 coyote

Need some help finding a nice 5.0 out of a mustang for my ranger is it better to buy used or new, buy it from a salvage yard or from someone? I don't wanna spend to much for the engine though so whats the average price for a 5.0? Thanks

For a coyote your looking 4 to 15k depending on condition.

The older 5.0 can be had from free to 2k ish and go up from there depending on how you want to build the motor

5.0l V8(explorer) and 5.0l coyote V8(Mustang) are unrelated engines, coyote is a Double over head cam(DOHC), 5.0l is over head valve(OHV)

5.0l is 18.75" wide, tight squeeze in Ranger engine bay
Coyote is 29" wide, there go the inner fenders and heater, and steering column, lol

Coyote is shorter at 24.5" without accessories
5.0l is 27.5"

5.0L is 20.75" high
Coyote is 29" high, this is what body lifts are for

While it would be an interesting swap, and an expensive one, I just don't think there is the room in the Ranger engine bay for the coyote engine without extensive fabrication and when you say "I don't wanna spend to much" well..............probably not the right engine for a Ranger on a budget.

5.0l is not expensive and there are the many upgrades available for it, and most of the Ranger 5.0l swap pitfalls are well documented.

I got the dimensions from here: http://www.hotrod.com/how-to/engine/...ne-swap-guide/
Good read on swapping in a coyote engine

Coyote in a Ranger has been done once before, but there's no documentation on the "swap." If you're already budget conscientious, a Coyote isn't for you. Don't get me wrong, it'd be an awesome build and I'd love to do one, but you're going to spend 10x what your truck is worth doing it.
