I would like to have gone with 5.2 Aluminator myself, but had to draw a budget line somewhere so choose Gen 3 Coyote. I have seen several tests on the crate motor and it seems that Ford might have fudged on the horsepower ratings, everyone seems to be pulling well over the 460 mark. So I am figuring with tune and midlength headers, I will be in the 480-490 range which should be plenty of fun, and yet still get me well over 20 mpg.Thank you. I was actually debating between the new 5.2 aluminator (580 hp) and a gen 3 coyote (460 hp) and wondering if that extra power was worth anything if I couldn't put it down.
Now I'm wondering what is going to happen to the prices of coyotes if ford is going back to pushrods in 2022
