I would be leery about the first batch of engines. Maybe in 2 or 3 years?....

In 2 or 3 years they will be on to the next generation of motors. Last I heard coyote was only supposed to go through 2015 then they were going to start a new platform. I'm sure that could have changed since I read about it though.

2013 GHIG GT Premium - Track Pack and Recaro's plus more
1987 Mustang LX "Ironhead" - Everything you can think of
1999 Mustang DOHC swap carbe'd and fully built
1992 Bronco, lifted 33's built 351
Plus a few other cars and bikes in the fleet.
