So. Cara been sitting in my front driveway for a couple days, not being driven. I look out the window and see a squirrel crawl from under my car near my engine. Go to pop the hood and there’s a squirrel nest on top on my coil packs. Chewed up only 1 coil and the wires connecting it and the pink pigtail to the side. I bought a new coil and am going to fix that one. But I couldn’t find the pink connector at autozone. Am I going to have to buy a new wire harness for the entire thing? What is the pink connector called and used for?

That's a fuel injector. It looks like your friend chewed up the wire and plug that controls that injector. Just unbundle your harness and get a new pigtail from Auto Zone or the like. Time for a little lead injection needed for your squirrels.

Try RockAuto. I have found several repair pigtails there.

Also try searching car-part for salvage yards in your area. Many salvage yards will sell the entire motor harness for a very reasonable price.

Also note that a usable wiring harness doesn't have to come from a Mustang. A 2001+ Panther (Crown Vic, Grand Marquis, or Town Car) will use the same COP and fuel injector connectors. There are others. Take an example connector with you to the salvage yard.
