You will most likely get a lot more repsonses if you post this in the 2011+ Talk section. To answer your questions, yes people are putting T56s in the coyotes...can't asnwer as to why Ford didn't put them in originally, but 99.9% of the time companies' decisions come down to cost, so I would think the T56 was to much coin and would eat into their profits.
Again the shifter would be better answered by someone who has a coyotoe but the MGW shifter is a great piece. Barton makes a good shifter and seems to be popular among the coyote owners...Good luck and maybe post this in the section below: 2011-2014 Mustang Talk Forum | AllFordMustangs.com
