Might be in another thread on here, but are there any solid rumors of BITD allowing the 525hp package like SCORE?
Thank you! The Ford money and support does help make his decisions.Doubtful. Ford is already having a hard time finding a motor to compete with the 430hp Ls3. In all honesty the 430 and 525 arent as different as you would think. Definitely not a 95 horsepower difference.
Worm: Please don't drag the good sportsman racers into another V8 spec class debate! We all know what's needed is 6 more spec V8 pro classes for the special interest crowds: Spec V8 Truck, Truggy & Buggy under $50K, Over $50K but that doesn't want to compete against faster teams , and everyone gets a trophy! Kinda being sarcastic...They have a spec V8 buggy class.... its called Sportsman! Sorry just be sarcastic.
No issues with the 430 hp Ls3. The Coyote is hard to package and makes its power at a higher rpm which does not work well with the available gear ratios in my opinion. Only a couple trucks have been raced with a Coyote motor. Ford then played with a few different old school small blocks with not much reliability. The latest rules allow either the Coyote, 3.5 Ecoboost or LS3 430 in BITD. We have built trucks with all 3 engines. For the price, power, ease of packing and reliability I would choose the Ls3 all day long.What are the issues with the 5.0 Coyote and the 430hp?
I am just an outsider looking in but that makes so much sense to offer two different 6.2L option by different manufacturers that there is no way it could work or even be considered. Haha
