There is no arguing that individual throttles are sexy. Thereâ€™s just something about stack injection that gets your automotive blood pumping. When we saw the Borla Inductionâ€™s V8 Kit Ford Coyote Throttles Kit with Vertical Stacks at the SEMA Show a few years back, we couldnâ€™t help but fantasize about what it would be like to see at Coyote running a full tilt with this intake onboard.
They set up a stock Coyote crate engine with the intake and its supporting F.A.S.T. electronic fuel injection. On the back side, a set of Borla headers (PN 17263; $1,055.99) and a pair of Borla mufflers (PN 40575; $311.99) do work.
When you watch the video, we think youâ€™ll agree that hearing the Borla setup run on the dyno lives up to the fantasy. Check it out here:
With nothing more than the Borla Induction setup, a tuned EFI system, and a free-flowing exhaust, the naturally aspirated Coyote produced 515 horsepower! Having watched this system run, we canâ€™t help but start the fantasy all over again. What would this system be like when paired with the new Shelby GT350â€™s flat-plane-crank 5.2-liter engine?
