1 - What you heard about the Coyote ECU and driveability is from like... 4 years ago when the kits first became available. Those have loooooooooong since been sorted.
2 - The Coyote is much more capable than the Termi motor.
3 - You damn sure can build a 2V to get huge gains. Not sure why you think that is not the case. Build the bottom end and port the heads or go TFS. Not exactly any more expensive than the other options.
If you think you are going to get huge power on the cheap then you might want to go actually price everything out for all swaps. $6k for a clean New Edge and to get a 500-600 reliable HP you are going to be into it for another $10-$15k depending on what you buy. Same deal with the Termi or Coyote swap.
Best budget bet is a supercharger and a low mileage stock motor and tune it safely and keep the RPM under 6k. Car will be very fast and fun on the street and with the right overall setup you can do a LOT with 400whp.
