I want to know what some consider low revving engine. My 1971 429 SCJ had a factory rev limiter set @ 6125 RPM. I would take it to 6000 RPM when I dragged it. I would say with the 7.3 block built as stout as it appears, you could rev it to 7500 RPM . After market heads, cams, and connecting rods could make a beast out of the 7.3 liter truck V8. I am excited about the possibilities.

They are some impressive engines there. I think the coyote does just fine. I've read articles from engineers that discuss current engine technology and they always bring up the coyote as an example of an engine they are impressed with as far as tech and capability.

Absolutely - love my car - best Mustang I have owned (1987 GT, 2001 SVT Cobra, and 2003 SVT Cobra were the previous ones) without question. Although I did like that supercharged 4.6L Terminator...

Cheers,
Tim

As far as 1/4 mile times go the S-197/Coyote combo was and still is amazing. The worst thing that happened to 1/4 mile times is the IRS S-550 platform. IMO it's a small price to pay because the S-550 platform is a glorious ride compared to the S-197. As far as swaps go, let's see a base (low weight) S-197 with a '18-'19 Coyote motor with A-10 swap with longtubes, E85 and a quality dyno tune from an outfit like JPC Racing. I'd bet high 10's or very low 11's on a good day.

I still have no problem with somebody cramming a big block in their S-550. I'd like to have a look and a ride for whatever it's worth.
