    Default Chevy 5.3 has been done...new ford 5.0?

    I wanted to get a truck 5.3 and start a project with my jet boat, but I bought a mustang and very easily got 406hp at the wheels. Now I want a coyote powered jet boat! Has anyone started this yet? Or even considered it. I'm sure it won't be easy. But it would be cool to have my two 5.0's sitting in my driveway. One for the street, one for the river the forged long block is cheap from ford racing, and I'm sure some of these engines are showing up in junk yards or on eBay by now.

    Sounds awesome to me! I always though it would be cool to put a 03/04 cobra motor in a jetboat, but with a big turbo instead of the supercharger.

    I believe I saw some Youtube Dyno videos of the new 5.0's in the 850 hp range with either blowers of turbo kits. Very impressive engine for it's size. I would think you could get in the 1000 hp range without all of the accesories used in automobiles versus a boat.

    I know if u take s brand new stock 5.0 and put slicks on it. It will pull the front wheels off the ground, then grab second and front left will come up. Those things r badass, and can be programmed to the moon

    Yeah I have an intake/tune/catless H pipe and I got 406rwhp. I know a company did long tubes, tune, cams, boss intake, polished heads and achieved 500rwhp n/a. In order to safely get the 650+rwhp the forged internals from the boss engine should be used. But it's easily attained with forced induction and good tuning. The tuning potential is what really makes this engine killer, I don't know how it would react to a carburetor. If I don't find the time or funds to do this I sure hope someone does!

    I think one of those '03-04 Terminators would be fun to build, and a built Coyote might just be plain rediculous with some serious boost.

    I think the terminator engine could be ran with a carb. Think of the cam setup on the coyotes cams it seems you really would need to run the computer. Unless you could just lock the cams out to one position, sense you don't really need the power below 3000 rpm's. The new mustang cobra jet uses the 5.0 and a 2.9 liter whipple, I see it producing at least 800hp. I'll have to start searching junk yards for a totaled 5.0

    They make msd boxes for the new fords and for the hemi. New motors are easy to wire up. I think they make carbed manifolds for them too but I'm unsure.

    Default build started

    my son and i have started a build and i am very excited about this project, we are shooting for 1200 hp and this thing will be light. the hull was ordered yesterday along with intake, pump, motor and blower. this boat is going to be awsome.

    thinking of names, how about "3 oh too" or 5.uh oh"?

    here is link to our 4,000 lb 2011 mustang and we are putting identical motor in the boat (19 ft daytona).

    Out of curiosity - why go backward to carb application? Is there a benefit to the boat usage?

    Because the carbs are BADASS! thats why. And if you cant tune a carb, well you cant tune efi worth a damn either.

    I towed 21.5 HRs to Lake Anna VA to Jack's Gathering , 8hrs of which it was coming a monsoon, pumped the thing twice, hit the key and she lit right up. Ran cleaner/faster than any efi deal there.

    I axed if there was any BENEFIT to the boat?

    Better and cleaner than ANY boat there? Can you scan in all of the printouts of everyone's AFRs and yours? That's a great feat to outdo several highly advanced EFI setups with one old-school carb. Wow. Good for you! That's basically defeating physics!

    Yeah there is. Its called HP. Thats why the guy is thinking of using a Coyote to begin with!
    Problem with 8.1 owners is they don't get that. It outside their ability to understand.
