Seems like it's a decent deal with trans included and all. I mean **** it cost me around 3,500 for ported heads, cams, timing chain and guide kit, camshaft sprokets etc.

This is true when comparing to most Termi drivetrain swaps out there for sale.
I would say that if the OP's end goal is a big HP FI car then a Termi engine at this price is tough to beat.

The compression ratio is more favorable in the Termi 4.6 4V over the 5.0 and the Manley rods in the 4.6 are also preferable over the forged powdered metal rods for high boost FI applications. The Coyote is no slouch, and is a great N/A engine that's definitely capable of low boost FI, but if I were looking to push 15-20lbs I'd feel better with the Termi 4.6 managing that power, just my .02.

Not to mention the Termi swap would be much easier (relatively speaking) than the Coyote.

The high compression and boost is overrated in thr coyotes.
You can hit 700-750 rwhp on pump gas with stock compression.

E85 fixes your compression and boost issue. No need to run less than 11.0:1 compression ratios NA or boosted these days.
