In this video Matthew from RRS explains how to get a Coyote motor from a late model Mustang.
Coyote is a wide motor, bolt-on a good set of extractors, and you need room, where traditional upper control arms are or where A "Mustang 2" upper control arms would go, the best answer RRS coil-overs and notch the towers.
Upgrade your suspension while you make room where you need it.

Notching the towers is essential in the smaller (XK-XP, Falcon sprint, Maverick, and early Mustang) engine bays. Pictured above is an XY Falcon with RRS headers, the notched towers improve airflow and serviceability.
RRS has developed a shock tower notching kit, Thunderbolt for Falcon, Fairlane, Mustang and Maverick.

The Coyote motor, either as a new crate or salvaged motor, does not have a power steer pump.
RRS are developing an E-pump kit which will be a simple 3 wire harness.
The pump can be mounted either flat or upright making finding room much easier.
