Taking into account the bad rap that '94-'95 Mustangs get for being too challenging/not-worth-the-effort to modify, Associate Editor, Mike Johnson, put his personal, daily driven '94 Cobra on the line for our official foray into the world of Coyote swaps. Thanks to Jake LaMotta, Mike's once-timid Pony now sports this brand-new 5.0 (PN M-6007-M50; $6,999), which features a lightweight aluminum block, forged-steel crankshaft and rods, cast- aluminum pistons, 11.0:1 compression, aluminum DOHC cylinder heads, a composite intake manifold and twin independent variable intake/exhaust camshaft timing (TiVCT), which together help this beast make 412 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The 5.0 Coyote engine was the main subject of our Mar. '10 issue ("Coyote Beautiful" p. 62).
