Built v6 vs. Coyote swap

Ok so im wondering which seems like a better move (engine size and favoritism of a v8 out of the mindset). either do a forged stroger 4.3L build twin turboed or big centrifugal, or I do a coyote swap with a kennebell on top. Coyote and kb im looking at about 15g. The k-member and all the supporting mods will be done regaurdless of which build I do. Also I have too much money sunk in this car to "just go out and buy a cobra". Plus id be at the same price but at a much heavier car with much lower hp. So any thoughts?

Do the 4.3 build, I always like more creative and different builds over the regular v8 swap! But then again a coyote swap would be sweet too haha

A built v6 would be way cooler and more rare. People generally don't build v6's. I want to build mine and supercharge it. Plus v8's weigh more. And what really matters when your racing is the power to weight ratio.

Ive also been weighing the idea of a 4v dohc 4.6
The coyote seems like it is a bit too much of a headache for swapping and once its in there is really not enough room to do even a simple tune up.

The 4v I could mount a twin screw on top since I like the whine more than the whistle. But im basically in debate mode right now. Lol

In this case the V8 will actually weigh less. Coyotes have a lot of lightweight parts as well as their aluminum block and heads. The older V6 that OP has is a cast iron block with other heavy parts.

I considered a Coyote swap myself for my 2001 and quickly realized that it would be way too much work.

Well now he's talking 03-04 cobra motor and that would weigh more.

He could use a Teskid block, bolts right up to everything else and is pretty light.

Screw it, if you want to be creative and waste all the time and money in the world to make slightly better times, slap a 1.8 l inline 4 out of an Audi or something stupid and strap two turbos on it. If you want to do something partially creative and tremendously effective, than look no further than the coyote. You could always go Chevy ls1 or 4 or something of that nature, but honestly it's hard to best the coyote. It's an incredibly attractive engine and the build would be a lasting improvement. Not too mention, you will be turning heads at all sorts of car shows. Doesn't matter if you seen it once or twice, people will gather around to see a coyote crammed into a new edge. Guaranteed. It's a lot of work, but the result is so rewarding. You'll be grinning ear to ear for a long time

That was TJs old set up. Now he has the Cobra Jet intake and a 4" cowl. I like Calvin's better, the blue one with the TVS 2.3 on top.

I would never put the terminator motor in. Too heavey and the teksid can handle all the power id want and then some. My goal is 500-600 isnt going to be a drag car so dont need 800+ .....Although hp and torque are always fun... lol i also want the engine bay to be mechanically inclining, as in not having to yank the motor to do a tune up or change the starter. Thats y im starting to reject this swap. I love the 5.0 but the trade off in my opinion isnt worth the time id have to keep investing. Whereas the 4v 4.6 or the v6 are both easily accessible to do maintenance or modification. Still thinkin though.

The coyote is a very desirable but costly motor unless u have connections. U can build ur v6 on a budget and get some very good power. Look at doing a 4.2 stroker with the t-bird SC set up added = blown stroker v6 <--- nice!!!
