Coyote 5.0 4v vs. boss 302

Which is better for the price considering the boss only gives 30 more horsepower for 6k

Boss is gonna have forged internals. Which is a huge plus.

I just would never feel right modding a boss though. Exactly why I didn't wait and get one. I'd feel the need to keep a car like that stock.

It's forged internals, fully adjustable suspension, better tires, and all together a beast of a car.

The boss motor has forged internals, a more free flowing intake, and can rev much higher than the stock 302. Not a huge difference on paper with power numbers, but it is a superior motor in about every way from the quality of materials and capabilities of the motor.

They're amazing cars, if you cant afford the new coyotes you can probably take the extra (better) step and get the boss. Not really that much more expensive when you look at what all it has

Thats just the engine. Also has upgraded suspension, exhaust, tires. And the car will hold its value better than a modded coyote.
Either would be an awesome car to own though

Only worth more left stock. Year and years when it becomes a collector car it will only be a collector car stock.

Sure can. I bet it'd be cheaper to upgrade the coyote engine than to buy the boss engine. Just won't really have a warranty on it.

Upgraded suspension on a coyote with after market would take the boss any day. The boss suspension is pretty good but there is still far better out there.

A coyote can be upgraded to beat the boss for less then the boss price. Also a boss will more than likely loose its value if not kept stock.

Okay I have a v6 I'm figuring which engine to get. I'm going with coyote because the boss is only better if you actually buy the boss, so coyote with mods to everything will be better so therefore coyote?

Why not sell v6 and get the 5.0?? Too many things have to be swapped out??
