Which STA? V6, V8, which tranny? AWD? Why are you looking for said gears? The V 6 vs V8 matters, the tranny matters. AWD or not matters. The 'why are you looking for' is just because I'm curious, but I'm happy to help you find what you need. :) I'm trying to find a V8, factory-power-adder (SC or Turbo, but I think, IF they made them, they were only positive-displacement SC added, and likely AWD, not even 4X4.

I just had my 4.6 3valve taken out along with the transmission and dropped in a 5.0 coyote with a 10 speed automatic out of a 2018 F 150. My AWD is now just a 2 wheel drive . Truck is running great but can’t stand the one tire burnouts

I’m currently finishing a 2006 Mustang Coyote (actually a RoadRunnet) swap, and am considering one for the STA as well.
My STA is only RWD, but would live to do a 4WD conversion. What was the issue with retaining the front drive on your truck?
Also, do you have any lessons learned on the swap?

You would have to get from an F150 and integrate all the 4wd stuff.... A lot of work, Not that it cant be done, just a lot of work.
most of the 5.0 swaps went manual and 2wd due to the computer problems.

The shop doing the work has had lots of trial and error moments. Decided against trying to keep it as a 4wd. I have never taken it off road anyway. Trying to keep it as a daily driver and maybe a trip down the local drag strip just for fun. Had to put in a race pack to get gauges to work, still tying up loose ends on that. Once it is all done, I’ll try to share some pictures, if someone can help out.

Not fair: The whole point in having the Adrenaline is (okay, half of the reason) is for the AWD. Okay, it's mostly for the smexy-looks.

I'm going to have to move my truck, and see if I can find an ADrenaline. "I" wanted the Adrenaline, BECAUSE, I thought they were all AWD, and I thought ALL of them had either a positive-displacement Supercharger on them, or they all had Turbos. I'll end up with an Adrenaline soon, and I'll either SC or Turbo the old girl....

My girl is 4.6, 4X4, and she's strong. But I don't have that awesome Adrenaline look in the front-end, that I want. I'll get the wheels and tires in the next week. But it's annoying that they don't give the love "I" want.

Oh, and I prefer the Sport Edge wheels more than the Adrenaline wheels. Personal preference, but I prefer the Edge Sport wheels. NOT that the Adrenaline wheels aren't good looking. But I have my preference.

My 2010 Adrenaline came with the 20” wheels. The reason I went with the coyote 5.0 was because all the shops I checked with said it was almost impossible to supercharge or turbo charge the 4.6 because of the hood design. I wasn’t about to modify my front end.

UGH, sadly they have 4.6 SC kits that fit under the stock hood.... or get the hood i have....
