So Oppo, after quite a bit of research, I've decided to start trying to track down a 5.0 Coyote engine to swap into my '08 Mustang.

Now since this is Oppo, I probably don't have to make this disclaimer, but don't tell me I should just trade my car in and buy one with a 5.0. I know its going to be more expensive this way, but I like the way my car looks and I have enough money in the suspension that I want to keep it. Also, it would be super bad ass considering there are not many S197's with a Coyote swap. I've found a couple threads, and it seems that if I can get my hands on a wiring diagram, it shouldn't be that nightmare-ish to do myself slowly over time. So now that that's out of the way, where would you guys suggest I look for used engines? I know the obvious answers are Ebay and Craigslist, but do you guys have any other suggestions? I have also checked out Copart, since I would have the space to keep a wrecked car to part out, but that is a larger initial investment most likely, and riskier. I have also thought about asking around at local Mustang shops to see if anyone is pulling this motor for something even crazier. So let me know if you guys have any other suggestions.


EDIT: I also realized I can search a bunch of Mustang forums, so I am going to do that as well.
