Alright. Well I mean im going to look at my options but right now I cant really do anything unfortunately. I wish i could though i just dont have the money to. Also if you get the CJ manifold would that do anything to your warranty?

Short answer. Yes any mods that require a tune, will void your warranty

Yea but there is something with the warranty that if its a FR part they dont always void them. Or something like that. Not 100% sure. I do know that when i was looking to put the FR whipple on it Ford said they would still honor the engine warranty since it is technically their part.

Yes if they install the part with there tune which would be a waste.

Heres an old thread i remember reading on making N/a power. A lot of it is speculation, but i guess the info is there nonetheless. This was before the CJ intakes had really come out and we started getting data from them.

Dealers are different, but they told me the FR whipple had to be installed prior to delivery to be warranty. If done after delivery - it's all you, no warranty.

How much of a difference would there be if I had my stock heads ported or if I had boss heads petted and put on. Would it be worth the cost in the end when I put the stroker in or is there not enough difference in flow to matter

Some of the best heads available. You can send them yours and they will port them also. If you do not want to buy a new set directly from them

What do you think the cost would be if i just started with a new block from frpp and built it up. They have a boss 302 "big bore" block that can go out to 363 CI and itll hook up to everything under the hood the same as the coyote block.

They also have what is essentially a coyote block cast in iron.

Link? Are you sure you're not confusing that with the foxbody 302 block?

To be honest I could be but I honestly wouldn't mind having the pushrod engine under my hood. Plus it would be fun to build.

I could very well be wrong, just playing the devils advocate before you drop a lot of money on an engine

Honestly if your planning on doing a complete motor swap to a pushrod. Go with a LS motor.

Naaa man gotta stick with ford. And if the top end rebuild of the coyote motor cost 10k without doing internals (roughly) then I really wouldn't be spending any more than that to build a new motor and put that in.

If your gonna spend 10K, either get an LS, or buy an aluminator coyote engine.

What's is different in the aluminator?
But why an ls block. Is there that much of a difference b/w the boss blocks from frpp and the ls block.

other than the pistons / rods, nothing. Its basically just a forged assembly you can buy from Ford at various compressions.

Sometimes, when you consider the cost of down time and having to tear the engine apart, just buying a new short block can actually come out cheaper. Plus you then either have a spare motor, or call sell your stocker.

Again, if you want a pushrod, go with the LS, Ford pushrods are not good, and underpowered.

If modular, you have enough for the aluminator, which is a fully forged coyote from the factory.

True, but I like the thought of being able to choose what goes into my engine. Cause ford racing doesn't really have the best parts in their stuff. Which is where building my own comes into play. Plus the only thing I would drop in from frpp is the aluminator xs which is 16k so it'd be cheaper to build an engine the way I see it.

Also what would I need to do to be able to even drop an LS into the car. Would it even fit the MT-82 trans, how would i go about mounting it. All that stuff thats necessary. Cause to what I know I dont think anyone has dropped an LS into a coyote yet.

They're like half the physical space of the 5.0, itd probably be a breeze to mock up the engine mounts. The transmission will be the hardest part, but you'd likely just need a bell housing. The T-56 casing should be the same for both cars, they just have a different bell housing.

That's what I was thinking. I emailed the guy who owns the garage that I'm gonna be using when I do all this and he said that if I put an ls7 with ported heads and a custom cam that it could put down 600 NA which is awesome IMO.

600 to the tires NA out of a LS7 will require a big cam, bad *** heads, full exhaust, fast intake etc.

I think he meant 600 to the flywheel.

No, itll do 600 to the wheels, but it will need a healthy engine as mentioned above.

Either way. Shoving in an LS7 and transmission will be expensive.
