Kurgan Motorsports has been tapped by Ford racing Performance Parts to partake in a Coyote 5.0 swap as part of the Carlisle All-Ford Nationals in Carlisle, PA, June 3-5, 2011.
Kurgan Motorsports will be drive a running Fox-body Mustang with stock powertrain into the Carlisle fairgrounds and over the course of the weekend complete a Coyote 5.0 swap using Ford Racing's crate engine (M-6007-M50) and wiring installation kit (M-6017-A504V). Once the vehicle is done it will be required to run and drive a specified distance to consider the swap complete.
The promotion will showcase how easy it can be to swap a late model Mustang powertrain into an earlier chassis and feature numerous aftermarket parts from industry partners that are geared towards easy installation of the Coyote 5.0.
The crowd is encouraged to get involved by submitting estimates as to how long the swap will take. The entrant who guessed closest to the actual time will be given a gift certificate for Ford Racing performance parts. Exact amount is TBD with other sponsors potentially pitching in.
