Could you please post photos of the motor mounts?just joined. i have a 2016 mustang ecoboost swapped 1992 fox body dirt track oval race car. the donor car had 20k on it. i have 6 wins to date using the stock tune. i used the ford performance controls pack kit, quick time bellhousing and T5 transmission. i fabricated solid motor mounts and used the ford performance coyote swap power steering bracket modified to fit the AC bracket mount holes on the ecoboost block to use a hydraulic power steering pump.
i'm using all the OEM plumbing except i have an aftermarket 3" catless downpipe into a 4" core diesel muffler. i also had to replace the OEM airbox for clearance and added a 4" cone style air filter. the OEM intercooler wouldn't fit so i'm using a treadstone tr8c intercooler. i'm running sabre chem 100 octane unleaded racing fuel and a pedal commander to help with throttle delay.
i've been racing a long time but the ecoboost engine is new to me. i'm still learning it's characteristics and adjusting the car to handle the additional weight vs. a 2.3 SOHC. yes, an aluminum/plastic ecoboost engine is 100lbs. heavier than an all cast iron old school 2.3 SOHC even with the balancer assembly removed. i liked the engine so much that i bought a velocity blue 2019 mustang ecoboost as a daily driver.
i'm still working on keeping it from getting too hot when the track is heavy. as far as i know, this is the first ever mini stock to be ecoboost powered.
