Newby here. I am in Pigeon Forge, Tn. Just about to get started on a 56 Coyote Bird, however I need to finish a 66 GTO that is about 2/3 done now. Any other Coyo Bird guys on here? I could use some initial info. as to procurement items and layout.

Welcome aboard!

Have you had a chance to go through the CoyoTBird photo galleries from the car we built?

v8tvshow.com/V8TV_2/index.php/en/car-bui...00048221976759975667

There is a lot of engineering needed to make that car work.

Let us know if you have specific questions, and we can help you with parts sourcing as well... we're dealers for everything used on the car.

Thanks, and good luck on the build!

Hi Kevin, Thanks for the reply and offer to help with this. I would like to do the coyote t bird setup but............. Questions prior to making decision to do the coyote.
1- Is steering doable with a later PS box w/ a GM type column? or is this a rack and pinion requirement?
2- your video didn't tell me why the switch from the ford trans to a Tremec.
3- I would be interested in switching the ac compressor to a ps pump.
4- Would a LS swap be easier and cleaner?

Thanks Thane

Thane,

I don't know if the steering is doable with a box, as this car came to us with a rack installed. We upgraded the rack to a better unit, but never even tried a steering box.

We upgraded to a Tremec because the customer did not like the Richmond in the car.

As for the steering pump, you'll have to do some research to see if anyone is making a bracket to allow that on the Coyote engine. All of the work we've done with them required both steering and AC, so I'm not familiar off hand of the ability to swap.

I presume the LS swap would be easier, as the engine is far narrower than the OHC Coyote mod-style engine.
