Jim Smart is a genius when it comes to Fords. He seems to be able to tweak every last bit of horsepower and torque from these engines. And of course, in the style of Car Tech, the photos are the best. I'm a Ford fan from way back and this book showed me things I definitely will use in the future. Great book, Buy it! ( )

Most automotive manufactures have begun building high performance cars with massive engines. Ford’s latest is the 2011 to present Coyote 5.0 and 5.2 engines. These engines in crate form are available from 420 HP to over 600 HP Built by Roush Racing. The content of this book is amazing; there are chapters that deal with every aspect of this engine from the Cylinder Block and Cylinder Heads to exhaust and cooling. Chapters 11 and 12 delve into the building of the Coyote engine by three high profile engine builders. Along with exactly what you get when you order a crate engine from Ford. About the only thing not found in this book is current Ford retail pricing. Sorry Boys and Girls but you will have to go to www.fordperformance.com for that information. In General, the author, Jim Smart put together a great reference book on this engine. S-A Design has again done a good job but I must mention that the product is still printed in China. ( )

FORD COYOTE ENGINES: How To Build MAX PERFORMANCE by Jim Smart is one smart, well conceived and executed look into the beloved Mustang engine. As so many power blocks happen, this Ford entry was a response to Chevy's introduction of their 6.2 liter mills.
Like every CarTech book I have every seen, this one is teeming with photos covering every aspect of the engine, from how the engine is built to refitting it to boost performance.
Mr Smart covers everything from simple lubing to the camshaft and valvetrain, cooling systems and electrical. Charts are included with the original engine specs, piston specifications and torquing requirements. Also included is a section on crate engines such as the M-6007-M50 5.0L 4 valve for the Mustang and the Edelbrock E-Force Coyote are featured, along with other options for all you who maybe want to pop a surprise under the hood of your rebuild.
In all this is a great guide to not only what is available from 2011 on, but a guide to help both novice and pro alike through the rigors of working on or replacing this great power plant.
I just got my copy back from my buddys in the Ford shop down the street. While not one of them mentioned anything they didn't know, the book hand plenty of grease stains and some areas were circled. And I saw at least three photocopies of individual pages taped to the walls in the bays, so... ( )

This book covers Ford Coyote engines from 2011 “to present” – it has a 2016 copyright. As usual with Car Tech, the photos are very good. If you are building or rebuilding one of these engines, this is an essential guide. ( )
