What's the power difference wise?
Which is easier to build?
I plan on swapping out my 2v outta my new edge...
I want a strong motor that'll last and put out some power.

Well the Terminator has forged internals from the factory and is supercharged, and makes about 360whp stock (around 420-430 crank). The Coyote makes 420 crank horsepower stock.......

If you are looking for absolute cheap numbers then Terminator because of a pulley swap, but if you want a real motor to build. Coyote all day.

So the coyote is the way to go? Cheapest way to get most power?

Well the only reason the Terminator would be "cheap" is for a pulley swap and tune for the supercharger. But that is just numbers, the Coyote may have the same numbers but i guarantee that it will realistically be faster. Neither are going to be "cheap", but yes the coyote is the way to go.

I'd go Coyote all day but a 4V swap is going to be simpler. Depends on what your goals are, what you can get both motors for and what your budget is.

If you use a brand new crate motor it'll be much more than $8k. Can probably get it done for less with a used motor.

Depends where you get it and which one. An Aluminator is $8k, the normal coyote is 6

Agreed, but even at 6k for the motor, by the time you get the PCM all the wiring, all the fitment issues etc, 8K is not out of the question, IMO go buy a 2011 GT it will be faster (being it wont take you 2 months to build it) and most likely cheaper in the long run.

Yeah. The only motor I'd want would be the Aluminator XS, but I can easily build it. 13K for that is ridiculous. I'd go with the JPC? 351 Coyote for like 16K if I had that money to drop on an engine.

Except, a coyote in my 2001 would mean it weighs in at sub 3200 pounds (with gas and fluids). While the 2011 is still like 3500-3600 pounds before gas and fluids..................

Looking at a 450-500 pound weight difference with gas and fluids. Even bigger difference if it is in a 94-98 or foxbody.
