I'd like to see that! I have zero interest in being in Chicago in February, though.

If you're on Facebook, here's a link to a post with lots of photos of this project on the Roush Facebook site way back in April.

Carl, Coyote is much more compact than older 4.6/5.4 Modular. Just imagine the sound of those ITB's sucking air.

Can't figure out how to grab a pic from the facebook link, but is that a FastCars front suspension?

That was my guess. I could confirm with Steve Carrick or Terry Senneker.

The last I knew of it they had one of our SPEEDSTER body kits but may have decided to fab a steel body up instead ??
