I’ve been leaning towards this myself. I was stuck on coyote swap for so long but I’ve been comparing the price differences and advantages/disadvantages. I love what coyotes do and can pull up to but I’m a person who never leaves shit alone. The space you have left to work on a swapped car is very little and that bothers me but they’re pretty damn reliable and make way more MPG’s. But on the other hand on a 427 I can do pretty much anything to that motor myself at any time with ease. If I do 427 I’ll be able to do my trans and rearend to support it for the same cost it would be for me to do a stock coyote swap.

How much of a concern is MPG to you? Is it going to be a daily? At 5-600 hp, you're not going to have the greatest mileage either way.

I don't see why a new 427 wouldn't be reliable. With good parts, it will be indestructible.

I’m not too concerned but I plan on driving it pretty often as I can just don’t wanna have to fill up 3 times a weekend. Honestly I was planning on making quite a bit more than 5-600rwhp. I kinda wanna shoot for around 4 digits. I know it should be indestructible but from my experience super modified cars aren’t that reliable, especially when you drive them like I do. BUT now I run on a Holley system and I think that should help some. I’m in no rush right now but I’ve been really considering pulling the trigger.

I guess I don't know enough about the coyote motor. Are they good for 4 digit horsepower? Even with a Dart, you'd need to step up to an Iron Eagle block.

Also, at 1000+ HP, you're going to be filling up all weekend!

Well I wasn’t just going to stuff any coyote in there. I was going to have it sleeved and built to handle everything you can throw at it. Dart I was going with a iron eagle. Like I said I’m in no rush right right now but it’s something I’m considering because I can still sell my setup I have now for ok money because it’s all low mile stuff. Just on the fence with things.

I'm sticking with my initial opinion. All signs point to 427.

It would honestly be the cheapest and easiest route. I honestly never driven a coyote powered car but seeing this coupe straight sold me on the whole idea. https://youtu.be/Zz9HQR7KO_w

Haha you’re right. A guy on a 4 eye page I’m on claims to be making 1000+ on a 331 which is even cheaper for me since I don’t have to buy the extra 351 stuff. My intake and heads should be good enough right now. I’m glad these are just ideas right now because I can’t make up my mind on what route. [burnout] [burnout] [burnout] [burnout]
