If you’ve been following along on the Boosted Coyote project, you already know we started the project with Livernois Motorsports and Engineering “rebuilding” Ivan Korda’s 5.0-liter Coyote engine into their Race-Series long-block. As such, the engine is now capable of handling well into the four-digit horsepower range. Built for strength, the Race-Series Coyote engine has a Darton-sleeved block, Livernois Powerstorm forged I-beam rods, and heavy-duty pistons, which put compression into the 11.5:1 range. The ported heads flow solid numbers with the larger 1.500-inch intake and 1.262-inch exhaust valves, even with the use of the stock camshafts. With a 2.9-liter Whipple Gen-3 supercharger on the car, the engine outran the fuel system on its first dyno pull, which led to a full fuel system overhaul. The next trip to the dyno saw the combination max out the boost available using the stock-diameter crankshaft pulley and the smaller 2.75-inch-diameter supercharger pulley for the Gen-3 Whipple, without reaching the 1,000-horsepower goal. That presented a fork in the road for the project: Option one was to drive the Gen-3 blower harder to pick up the 125 wheel-horsepower needed to achie...
