IMHO...start with a tune (real) and then look at cams...it won't take much to get there

Remember that just because it's still a Coyote engine that doesn't mean it's the same as yours. I don't know the specifics of all of the changes between the Gen II and Gen III versions but the addition of direct injection and a 12:1 compression ratio alone will account for a significant increase. Aside from that it uses an intake manifold based on the GT350 and an increased rev limit. You will not be able to duplicate that engine but a set of headers and the Boss 302 intake manifold along with a good tune will give you a significant increase. Beechkid will come back and disagree with me on this but I hold firm in what I'm saying. Save your money on the cams too.

I talked to a Ford rep when I was up in Pa for the Ford Nationals,he told me the ONLY thing that was the same between the old Coyote engine and the new Coyote engine was the CRANK,everything else was different.

Thanks guys for the info. Guess I'll start with the good old Intake/tune and see where that leads me. I got the track cal but didn't like how touchy the tune is. Glad I didn't sell my SCT X3 so I can try 3rd party tunes.

I'm interested for a detailed tear down and see all the new changes.

Remember all the theories around the mysterious 8 hp increase between 2012 and 13? Some of this is hype, some of it real. DI doesn't increase power on its own, it needs something to go along with it, like, say, increased compression and/or more aggressive cam timing.

Getting 460 fwhp out of an old coyote is easy. Full exhaust and a good tune will easily net that.
