4.6 or coyote swap?

Been thinking of replacing my engine and starting fresh, I can get a brand new 4.6 from ford or I can pay extra and do the coyote swap, would it be worth doing the coyote engine or just sticking with my 4.6l and rebuilding that engine up?

If you have the cash to think of a Coyote swap, get a forged stroker block from MMR, or Livernoise, or DDS, etc etc depending on budget. Build you a nasty boosted 2V!

What's your budget?

What's the purpose for the car?

If there is no concern for money, swap a coyote in her. It has a lot more potential than a 2V, and its all the rage nowadays. But be prepared to spend 10K+ to do the swap.

If your doing a coyote why not do a termi and it will be a lot easier to make more power

Build the 2v unless 700-1000 horsepower isn't good enough or the facts it's just a 2v isn't good enough. Everybody does a coyote swap just build the 2v. I've seen 2v's run low 9's in the 1/4 so the 2v has potential just needs to be worked on just as anything else.

I didn't even consider of doing a termi
I talked to a buddy of mine who runs a shop in Michigan he say he can rebuild a 2v with more horsepower compared to buying a coyote


Im leaning towards to keep the 2v
But ill look into the termi
Thanks

I love the 2v platform, and they definitely can be built for some nasty power. And it would be the easiest way to go. But the fact is, most people go 4v (like a termi swap) or more recently they do a coyote; if they want more power. Either one you're starting out at close to 400 crank hp. A buddy of mine runs SCCA. He started in a 97' GT, and no matter what he had done to the 2V, the power bands couldn't keep up. He swapped in a 97' Cobra motor with revised C heads, and an fr500 intake, tune and cams. He was dynoed at 380 at the wheels, and still had alittle trouble (but it was leaps and bounds over the 2v). So he recently did the coyote swap and he said it was the best thing he has done. Latemodel did a similar thing as well, and you can see videos of the swap on youtube. Obviously youre not planning on racing, but its food for thought. Nobody that has posted has been wrong, and all make great pionts (even the steam engine...lol) But in The end, you do what makes you happy
