Not only the builder but also how much do you want to spend   bang for the buck and the chevy wins hands down

That 300 cube coyote motor is heavier than a 454 or 460, and ONLY 400 hp??? 600 hp at what, 7500+ rpm???...useless in a jet...Might as well have that Honda...
My 383 SBC is 365 lbs and 475+ hp, with a Holley.

For VALUE, a 460 would be better, Just sayin'

no.





guy is putting a 1000hp twin turbo coyote motor into a carbon fiber layed up daytona jet boat.  you can keep your 460 anchor.   this thing is gonna haul the mail.  im lookin forward to him finishing the build.  its about time someone used that motor as its a beast in just about anything ive seen it put into.

throw enough money at something and even a honda can be fast...

id love to see boats using the coyote 5.0 motors.  damn things are 400hp and 600hp+ with easy mods.  ford even makes a swap kit with a ECU, etc for $1500 to get one running out of the box.

412 hp @ 6500...f'ing worthless in a jet (c/d or d/e impeller? wtf???)

1000 hp with twin turbos... easy mods...not easy on the wallet

from a chebby guy, 460 over coyote, MORE VALUE

Lack of industry backing?  Flooded market of GM parts and aftermarket resources?  Government Conspiracy?  Maybe Ford wasn't the lowest bidder Mercruiser was developing a line of engines?  May never know
