LS vs Coyote 2, Episode 4: A Winner Crowned In Dramatic Dyno Session

  • Published on:  Friday, March 29, 2019
  • In a dogfight on Westech's engine dyno, the LS and Coyote engines are dyno tested in a quest for victory in the competition. LS vs. Coyote 2: Boost, is a competition where two teams were given $15,000 budgets, plus ProCharger superchargers, in a quest to make the absolute most horsepower per dollar allowed in a brutal dyno test. Budgets were pushed to the limits in order to win. Top engine builders, LME and MPR, were both were given the platform (LS and Coyote) and a common set of rules to build on - which included VP C85 fuel, up to 12-rib serpentine belts, their choice of any ProCharger, and hydraulic roller camshafts (among other things). These teams were challenged to make the most horsepower possible on a fixed budget. Things got dicey in the room, as both builders tried to push the limits and the rulebook in ways we didn't even imagine.

    Coyote just inferior, less reliable and needs to rev much higher (why belt kept slipping) to make less power. Not to mention the whole timing chain design issue.

    This is so so so unfair. Please give the LS more valves. That coyote looks like a monster on rabies. Hahaha........bunch of crybabies.

    I would like to see a 5.0 litre LS compete in a fairer comparison almost 2 litre difference is hardly fair. Or extrapolate the difference by dividing the LS numbers by 1.4

    Chevy will always win, Ford can put good numbers but will fail all the time. As a former track employee, I would see mustangs run 1-2 times then break. While the ls motors running all night. No wonder there’s an ls motor on almost anything, even mustangs. It’s a thing, ls swaps not coyote swaps

    Everyone knows the LS was going to win, there's no replacement for displacement.

    The engine you used is from an f150 not a mustang 2 different engines one is for high torque low rpm the other high horsepower high rpm or maybe you should use the 5.2 engine or the new 7 liter Ford engine displacement against displacement

    I disagree with the results. Both engines should have been closer to same cubes. Ijs. Both are very stout engines and both makes real good power.

    I dig both motors, but tbh the LS platform is just a better dollar/hp engine.
    That being said, I am pretty happy with the fact that American V8 engines are the best in the world, dollar/hp& reliability wise.
    My only wish is they would have done a Dodge as well.
    They all kick ass.

    Should have been a 5.3L LS.

    If you're not matching displacement it's not a fair comparison.

    LS should've used a 4.8... so the Ford 5.0 would've had a chance
