Coyote time!

Just picked up a 2012 coyote with supercharger! It also comes attached with a 6 speed manual. Now all I have to do is figure out how to fit it in my 67 clone!

Very nice! I have just about decided that a blown Coyote with a T56 is the end game for my 1966 coupe.

Please keep us posted,
Marty

Damn, that 67 will be a monster! I saw a bone stock Coyote in a 90 Notchback, and the guy couldn't keep it straight 1-4th.

I'm going to start off on the wrong foot! Doesn't this belong on the Mod Forum?
Now, all who are fuming relax! I very glad you have it on the Vintage forum. Caused me to learn a little about what the heck is the Ford Coyote? Did a little Googling and know a lot more than 10 minutes ago. Being an old mechanical engineer I'm really impressed with what's being done with the marriage of computers and mechanical design.

Way back in the 50s small blocks (Chebbie and the small Hemi) were pushing power from a small package. We've been hearing aud nausium "there's no substitute for cubic inches". In recent years technology to combine mechanical design advances allowed/promoted by computer control and the necessity for higher efficiency (higher gas mileage) gives amazing power per cubic inch!

IMO there is a substitute for cubic inches.

Agreed. Always drove me nuts when people say that.. I'd always say "Sure there is. RPM and/or forced induction", to which they would counter "But imagine you did the same thing with more CID".. That never jived with me, since you could always just say "Imagine you did the same thing with more RPM"...

Who knows!

I buy your argument to some degree! For this project I wanted to go as over the top as my "car kitty" would allow. Something unique. I have done the big block projects in the past. This time I wanted to have all new world technology underneath and old world charm from the outside. (okay, maybe a larger wheel, 17" x 11"!).

For the guy telling me that I should have posted in the mod section... I thought I was! It was an early morning post! Point taken. This will be the most complicated build for me yet. I love the challenge, it will just take a little more time and $. I got a lot of time, not too sure on the $!

In an actual product each part, assembly or sub system has parameters that it must meet. Let's get away from motor's/engines people on each side have biases, emotional involvement.

Let's look at computers. Is physically bigger really better? Making components, then systems small affected speed, efficiency weight, cost, energy/power used. In the space program we were paid more program money the smaller with the same power we could make the particular sub system. Imagine today's cars carrying a $3,000,000 house size nixie tube digital computer.

What did you manage to get that engine and trans for? I looked at a few of them from ford racing and they were more than I wanted to dump in and I decided to go with the 400HP AFR 302 2700$ build with a 125 nitrous shot 650$ and a GV trans unit 2500$ so I could go 4.10 rear gears and still drive it on the highway at 2k RPM..

Your set up cost a lot less than mine. Without a doubt! I have $11K into the engine/trans/supercharger and misc parts - (alternator, brackets, etc.) I know I could have built a less expensive engine with similar HP but I really wanted something unique. Believe me, this car is getting expensive fast. I keep saying it's my last one but I can't stop building them!
