The Transmission is a MTX- 75 it bolts directly up to the ecoboost due to being a duratec pattern. Currently rebuilding a 2nd trans that I got from the junkyard, I will be posting pics later this week.
Are you going to keep the stock differential or go with an aftermarket LSD?

Awesome... just awesome. I'm so glad people are doing this. I am so jealous of your space, time, and part of your skills to pull this off.
Will definitely be keeping tabs. So cool to see.

Oh, and I like the turbo location. Looks badass.

I am going to be putting a mfactory 1.5 lsd In as well as rebuilding the transmission, I will have pictures up and write up shortly, just really hard to get everything done like I want with my limited time.

Small update : I have been really busy do to work and life. But I do have my steering wheel attached.( I'll have to sit down and wire it all later) but check out this Gen 1 Coyote that I have tore down. It has 252k miles on it and only thing that it has wrong with it is a light tick when warm ( Original engine, Transmission, driveline) I will be finishing up this truck tomorrow and then back on track with this swap.

Tomorrow is the day!! The stock 300k oem engine and transmission will be pulled out. Then my ecoboost 2.0 with a fresh rebuilt mtx75 with 1.5 lsd from Mfactory will be dropped in .
For the past 2 months of this car being my daily I've been purposely trying to blow it .... because why not 🤣. I keep pinning it at 100+ mph and just driving aggressively in general to see the limits. I can report this is one well built motor and trans. The clutch is starting to slip, but suprised it hasn't gone out.
