True. Nearly any engine drops off rapidly above peak power RPM - another reason why removing the shift limiter on the Coyote is bad juju since it is far more risky than beneficial. On some cars (like the early L98 Vettes) short-shifting hundred of RPM below peak actually provided better ET's. Part of this was the way the gears were spaced, but a lot was the fact that peak powewr fell like a stone in the early days of TPI and the much better intake manifolds and fuel delivery we have today.

Think what the KiYote will put out when it is direct injected. I would not be surprised to see 500 BHP.
