  1. Edwardb�s Gen 3 Type 65 Coyote Coupe #59 Build

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Doesn't look like I'll get the Coupe back in my garage workshop this week. But as of today, promised for early next week. Final wet sand and polish is happening on the main body parts. Then a couple small parts to finish up (spoiler, mirrors, engine cover) then it's mine. Not anxious or...
  2. Edwardb�s Gen 3 Type 65 Coyote Coupe #59 Build

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Can't have too many pictures, right? Wet sending and final polish happening. Color looks even better out of the booth as expected. Maybe home this week??? Hope so.
  3. 2015 Donor Mk4 Roadster w/IRS, First Build - Input Welcome, Many Questions.

    Ford Modular Engine Roadster Builds
    No way would I reduce the airflow through your intake with that small air filter. Plus you don't need all that clearance. The Coyote is a smooth running engine and if you have the usual Energy Suspension motor mounts, won't move around nearly as much as you seem to expect. I ran mine for a...
  4. Edwardb�s Gen 3 Type 65 Coyote Coupe #59 Build

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Hard to know exactly how to answer since I'm not actually doing the work. They've had to re-mask it three times, but that's pretty normal as you go through the major steps and need a clean start for each. Probably a little more work with more to protect body on. But that's how they wanted to do...
  5. Edwardb�s Gen 3 Type 65 Coyote Coupe #59 Build

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Big progress to report for the paint. Yesterday, the shop did the stage and mask for the final paint steps. Then sprayed a tinted sealer over the completed and wet sanded primer. Said they added the tint to the sealer to give the most consistent color possible for the base color. Plus said for...
  6. Thinking about a coupe, have a few questions!

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    My take in order, with a Gen 3 Coupe nearly done. Build thread linked in my sig line below. 1. There is definitely an aftermarket. But not as much for the Coupe as the Roadster, and not too much yet for the Gen 3. If you go with a complete kit, and stay close to the Factory Five recipe, don't...
  7. Edwardb�s Gen 3 Type 65 Coyote Coupe #59 Build

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    It’s been a couple weeks. Thought I’d at least check in. These projects have a lot of moving parts and remind me all too much of my former life with project management. Right now I’m chasing five different things that are affecting my build. Kind of goes with the territory, but for someone who...
  8. Dash mounting tips

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Curious how the last two posts meet the OP's goal of "avoid using screws" and "keep it clean of any visible screws or fasteners." Granted not everyone wants to deal with invisible mounting. But that was the question. And if you position the brackets properly, not hard to remove the dash. I've...
  9. Dash mounting tips

    Factory Five Roadsters
    For my builds I've put four right angle brackets on the back of the dash and attached to the underside of the dash hoop. I place the brackets on the dash before covering with flat head screws, so they're invisible if you get them perfectly flat. Also locate them where they're reachable with an...
  10. Fuel pump for Gen3 coyote

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Agree with Gordon. 255 LPH is more than adequate for the Gen 3 Coyote, assuming no crazy power adders. Really no point IMO of putting that 340 LPH pump in there. Also pay attention to fuel line sizes and pump hangar. BTW, in your post you said gallons per hour (GPH). Most pumps, including this...
  11. did you use Stewart Transport? costs?

    NorCal Region
    Others you've talked to? Not sure what that means. Stewart is properly equipped to transport the kits and offers a pretty unique service of delivering the kit right into your shop or garage. Plus deal with all the loose boxes that are part of the delivery. I'd be a little wary of other offers...
  12. Type 65 and Roadster

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Have had several Roadsters and currently driving 20th Anniversary Roadster #8674. Just completed its third season and nearly 6,500 miles. Love everything about it. But a real top and real heat and A/C would extend the driving season plus make my wife happy. Plus the Coupe is amazing looking and...
  13. Revamping the Car lift question

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I've used these in my last two garages. They're awesome. Liftmaster 8500.
  14. Coyote wiring conversion from 347

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Assume you would install the Coyote with the Ford Performance controls pack? If so, remove the blue start wire on that firewall solenoid and replace with the Coyote harness start wire and it should function just like it does now. Having said that, do you need it with the normally installed Ford...

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I just got an answer to an email I sent to him a couple days ago. He's at SEMA, which would explain the delay. So still out there.
  16. Revamping the Car lift question

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I had and used a Danmar MaxJax in my 20x20 2-car garage at my last house. I was able to set the columns to allow room for building and storing the Roadster, but still allow my wife's DD SUV to be inside. Also a requirement in our household. You can set the columns as narrow or as wide as you...
  17. Lund Tune (false?) Knock on WOT

    Ford Modular Engine Roadster Builds
    Well... It could be either. Actual pre-ignition knock or mechanical or "false" knock. The knock sensors are so sensitive in these engines that it can detect either. What you don't want is the PCM reacting to "false" knock. That's the point of the Octanium (or other octane boosting additives) to...
  18. Sad Picture of the Day

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Unfortunately, around here the roads are white with salt and thick with rock salt all Winter. The warm days might be tempting, but I always wait for a couple Spring rains to wash them clean.
  19. Sad Picture of the Day

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I know this is happening all over the cold weather regions. But still had to post. We had our first Michigan snow a few days ago. Don't think they salted the roads, but temps are now regularly in the 30's and the outlook doesn't look any better. So time to accept reality that the driving season...
  20. T56 Removal

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Was hoping someone else would reply since I don't have any direct experience with a T-56 in a Roadster. But so far, no one. They're not real common in Roadsters to begin with, and probably very few have tried to remove it. I assume you mean without taking out the engine, e.g. drop out the...
