Money verses complexity

Which would be the better move? A fully forged/built 2valve 4.6L with kennebell or a stock coyote swap with a kennebell? The coyote looks like an extremely extensive swap but the rewards are high. Im thinking about money verses money. Weight vs weight and power vs power. I appreciate all advice, except go buy a new coyote mustang. If I was thinking of that I wouldnt be posting this.

I'm not really sure how to answer this because there are many variables.
The 2V is obviously going to be easier but it costs a hell of a lot to get to the power level of a tuned Coyote.
The Coyote is a semi-difficult swap ccomparatively but there is more power potential for less money once it is installed.
I suppose it boils down to how many hoops that you're willing to jump through to do the initial swap.
One thing that I haven't really heard people talk about too much is the potential emissions testing difficulties that may come with the Coyote swap.

This probably wasn't much help.

If you haven't already check out my thread about a 99-04 coyote swap up at the top.

Coyote is the way to go IMO. Although if you want REALLY cheap look at a LSx swap.

Ok so from what I have been reading and researching on the swaps im looking at roughly somewhere around 18g to do the swap properly. Around 25g if I dont cut corners and actually replace parts that would work "ok" but would do much better replaced by the aftermarket. For instance 4.6l k-member will work fine but a MM k-member weighs less and is much better as far as quality and performance.

Don't look at it that way. Look at what it costs to get the Coyote into your car and make it work like it was designed to be there. Don't factor in the MM K member or new trans or anything else. Just getting the motor in with the FRPP harness and getting it running smoothly/correctly. Because any other costs after this you factor in you are going to be doing regardless of which motor you drop into the car.

Coyote WILL fit with stock K member btw.

Look at my sticky at the top of the 99-04 GT section.
