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.
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?
