I do agree with the comments about the NA version. If you look at the Dodge's and Chevys that are NA, the 5.0 hangs in there 0-60 and qtr mile wise with much larger displacement motors.
The gen2 and the gen3 can hold about the same power stockExcellent article. I learned a lot!
I was particularly interested to learn about a few aspects of the 2011 motor that were unique. I knew about the oil squirters vs. the plasma coating but there were a few other changes that I didn't know about. For whatever it's worth, my June 2010 build 2011 GT was absolutely flawless with a *gasp* Bama tune and constant "enthusiastic" driving for 40k miles at the time that I sold it. I LOVED that engine!
I was also surprised to hear that the gen 2 had some significant drawbacks as I always had the impression that these were the best of the three for making big power numbers on stock internals.
Did I miss it or was there not a peep about the infamous "typewriter tick?" My 2011 and my 2020 sound exactly the same in that regard.
Yeah, not 100% confident on that story. First, the "Coyote" name is used for GT350 and GT500 references and then under the Gen3 section it says " Despite all of its performance modifications and the addition of port fuel injection" ... The Gen3 had the addition of DIRECT injection, not port.It was a lot of good information and some miss information
Gen2 and gen3 use the same rods, pistons, crank, bearings. Both pistons are about the same strength. Now the gen3 cylinder coating is a problem but gen2 cylinder blows apart under high cylinder pressure like supercharger or turbo or even nitrous sometimes. So I would say that the bottom end is equal. You can use any gen bottom end in any year coyote car very easilyIt was a very interesting read. And in every single article there aren't any accuracies. I mean dealt with the press myself many times, I don't ever remember an article where I was quoted accurately. That said when was deciding to put a supercharger on my 2018 Mustang, I called and spoke with Whipple at Great length as I had installed one on my Bullitt a year before. I think it may have been Dustin but I'm not sure who told me that he thought the Gen 2 engines were stronger than the Gen 3 for supercharging. I don't have any more details than that.
