The Coyote 5.0 Mustang motor has been a superstar since it was originally introduced in the 2011 Mustang GT. It was originally released in a just over 400 hp version in its debut. It saw a noticeable boost in horsepower with its upgraded mods in the Boss 302. While the official HP numbers have not yet been released, the rumored 440 horsepower should be relatively easy to pull off with the confirmed improvements and modifications.

Coyote Mustang Specs (15-17) 5.0L Engine

  • 5.0 TiVCT V8 DOHC
  • 11.0:1 Compression Ratio
  • 412 Horsepower At 6500 RPM
  • 390 Ft-Lb Of Torque at 4250 RPM
  • Aluminum Block
  • 80mm Drive By Wire Throttle Body

It looks like the Boss 302 served as a test mule for many of the new 2015 Mustang Coyote 5.0 engine revision. We all knew the S550 Mustang would get a boost in horsepower, but we didn’t know how much or even how. The new 5.0L Coyote motor is getting the addition of charge motion control valves and new higher flowing cylinder heads with revised high flow ports to improve air flow into the motor. Along with the new cylinder head design we will see larger intake and exhaust valves with stiffer valve springs. Ford also improved the rotating assembly with forged rods and better balanced crankshaft. With all of these components we also will see higher compression ratio and higher red line. Top that all off with new intake and exhaust camshafts and you have a vastly improved coyote 5.0 engine.
