Awesome, thx.The Factory Five Coyote installation instructions show two CAI options. The Spectre one pictured, plus a second option from Treadstone Performance. I used the Spectre on my Gen 2 Coyote Roadster. The Treadstone one on my Gen 3 Coyote Coupe. Either are good options. Either will work on either version. https://www.factoryfive.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Coyote-Fitment-roadster-rev-2B.pdf. For a Roadster or Coupe (only ones I personally have experience with) it's not necessary to relocate the oil filter. In fact I would encourage not too. Use a smaller filter like the one shipped with the crate engine. Mobil 1 M1-113 (the one I prefer), Fram PH10060, Wix/Napa 57060, or Napa 7060. The oil filter is in the same location for any of the Coyote versions. For the Gen 2 and Gen 3, it's necessary to remove the oil cooler. But that's covered in the instructions too. Not necessary to change anything with the throttle body.
Well, it would have been useful to know you're asking about a Backdraft. This is a Factory Five forum. I've seen and looked at Backdrafts (couple in our club) enough to know the engine location and frame are different. So can't say whether the answers provided before apply. The instructions provided are of course only for Factory Five. So how much they apply will vary as well. The Coyote is a cool running engine, so for street driving an oil cooler is typically not necessary or even desirable. If you're asking about a crate motor and the Ford Performance controls pack (harness, PCM, etc.) the engine harness that's on the engine when it comes out of the box remains. The control pack harness attaches to it. You can get a copy of the controls pack instructions off the Ford Performance website if you don't have them already. May answer most of your questions. Obviously I have no way to describe details for connecting to the Backdraft chassis harness.Awesome, thx.
I have a Gen 3 engine that goes into a Backdraft. I've heard they don't need a oil cooler, so that's good.
By any chance... do you know if i need more than the OEM engine harness to connect the control pack (on the pdf it mentions a connect to the chassis harness)?
Ill have to see if i have the logs saved but I drove around with my HPTuners recording and saw a pretty big difference between sitting at a stop light and cruising. Not necessarily definitive but was good enough for me.I seem to recall that without supplemental vents - which you've obviously got - the hood scoop acts as a vent, rather than an intake. An easy test would be to tape some string to the underside of the lip of the vent and/or the leading edge of the hole in the hood. Then go for a drive to see if the string gets sucked under the hood or blows out. But since I haven't done the test, I can't say for sure.
