There was a big thread about it a while back. I'll have to look for it.

And the coyote engine is roughly 80-100 pounds lighter than the 2v

The Aluminator is not any lighter than the regular Coyote but it does have better internals. The Aluminator crate is like $8k or something right? Figure another $4-$5k in swap stuffs by the time everything is all said and done and then if you are not DIY you have to factor in labor. Many of us have ran the numbers and if you are buying everything new, it's actually cheaper to sell your car and pick up a base model 2011/2012 GT for $20k.

He's right the aluminator motor is $14k... you might as well just get a 2012 Boss for $30k lol. They are out there. Or a 07-09 GT500. $20k for the aluminator swap, and that's not including a built trans or rearend. You'll be well into it for $30k or more. Eff that.

Its the same block and heads and crank. Just forged rods and pistons and a different compression ratio I believe. I don't think it would be lighter. I mean not sure how much lighter you need, the Coyote is already real light.


Honestly if you are that worried about weight, look into a LS1 swap. All aluminum and not very much $$$. And if the yards/parts dealers want too much money "because LS1" there are all aluminum 5.3L motors that work great too. A L33 is a 5.3L Vortec that came with "LS6 heads" (please correct me if that's wrong Raptinator but I'm pretty sure I'm right). Get one and then add a good cam and a LS6 intake and a tune and there is a 375rwhp small light motor for way less monies. Also has stronger internals than the regular Coyote does.
