5.0L Coyote Adrenalin

One of our crazy projects recently was our 2008 Sport Trac Adrenalin that originally featured the anemic 4.6 3v engine. Ford decided not to build us an awesome powerplant in these trucks as they did in their 2005 Concept version, so we decided to take matters into our own hands.

As the title already suggests, we installed a completely new 5.0L engine and manual transmission swap from a 2011 Mustang GT. Converting an auto truck to a manual is not an easy undertaking, but we like doing things the hard way, and staying unique. With some amazing burnouts and high RPM blasts, this Adrenalin is the first of its kind to live up to its name!

The Coyote Adrenalin made over 400 rwhp on our Dynojet at Shrader Performance! Listening to this truck scream at 7000 rpm is quite amazing and unexpected. It gets tons of looks driving this thing around town, and are enjoying shifting the manual MT82 6spd gearbox. It was a difficult swap with a huge learning curve but we successfully completed this project to make one helluva unique daily driver truck.

How can I get one of these?!

  • Due to the cost of this project being over $20,000, we no longer provide this option
