So I got a feeling 95% of the people on here haven't seen this so I'll post the link.

A Look Inside the Wiseco, K1, And ERL-Built 351 Coyote Short Block - StangTV.com

Now the reason I'm actually posting is, for those who saw this before and what not, has anyone actually heard any sort of recent news about it? I know we all love our "5.0" engine, but this seems like an amazing upgrade down the road. The bigger the better right?

They should've waited for this motor to release the new Boss 302. Should be a very nice engine. Maybe I won't be holding onto my 4.6 v8 as long as I thought. :scratchchin

I remember reading somewhere that they thought about putting this in the upcoming GT500.

I am curious what the rod angle is at bdc? Some rod angles scare the poop out of me in the stroker setups. The 347 strokers have a horrible rod angle. The rod is almost parallel to the ground when at bdc. I wonder if this is similar? If so you won't see me doing this anytime soon.

Good God!!! Expected to handle up to 2,000 hp and 8k rpm's on the stock heads.:gringreen

That's insane.

Very nice. Can't wait to see the numbers when they get it out on the track/street. Could be one heck of an upgrade

Considering how long the production run of the 4.6 was I seriously doubt a move from 5.0 to 5.8 would be any time soon! Especially with gas hovering around $4 a gallon. I would bet a ecoboost V6 before a 5.8 V8.

What do you all think the stroker kit will cost?

Wiseco is right down the street from me:kooky:. A 5.8 with strong internals would make for a n/a god. I can just imagine it making 550na whp and do the qtr mile in the low 11's that would be perfect.

One our club members has a 347 dss and the rod angle isn't too bad and that engine is about 6 years old with several thousand miles on it...and some very hard driving on the laughing gas.

Here is what they have to say about the 351 coyote combo " In terms of market acceptance, racers that have been around the block – real engine builders – are going to take a look at the combination and say ‘that stroke, that rod length, that piston’ and they’ll recognize that it’s a good combination in terms of its ability to hold up to big horsepower,” says Nutter

It's all in engineering 10 15 years ago this might not have been a reliable option but I think with the new metals and testing this is a solid option.

I don't want more mass over the front wheels. If anything I want less. I'll pass on this.
How do you figure a resleeved block with different pistons/rods is going to be heavier? If it is, it will be such a small difference I doubt anyone would notice. Pistons maybe a few grams heavier, same the the rods. Since the sleeves probably have less material for the larger bore they are probably lighter.

Sounds fun but I've been down the big power N/A route before. It lands up costing a ton just to make almost as much as a blower. I rather just put a TVS/Whipple on a stock motor, make more power for less money.

I guess that is why people are proud to say all motor / no power adders?

Couldn't you do both?

It's a good option for a rebuild down the road for sure. People with big wallets looking to squeeze every bit out of their car won't have many second thoughts about upgrading early most likely.

"Ragains echoed that statement in stating, “A 95mm bore is about the limit, with 96mm a possibility, but you’re talking about naturally aspirated applications only at that point.”​
For those interested in punching their own Coyote block out to 95mm or purchasing one for a new build, ERL is presently equipped to do so"

Finally a way for us to build an 8500 RPM N.A. Coyote. If we can get our block modified, get boss heads cnc ported with huge valves that will now be unshrouded, huge lift cams and duration, 320 c.i.d. (5.2 L) screamer with better piston speed and still keep the tivct.

Sounds like a good future ahead.
