I have a 2012 boss setup and would like to know if the intake manifold would fit under the hood of the 33? I know they make a raised hood but I would rather run the flat hood if possible.
I see the basic Coyote engine fits so that is good. Does anyone know the distance from the top of the Coyote to a stock hood? Thanks,
I checked mine for you. It's right around an inch clearance at the leading edge, which is the tightest, with the production 5.0 intake cover installed. Way more without the cover. I'd be surprised if the Boss intake didn't fit.
I wasn't sure from your post if you have a take-off engine from a Boss or just the intake for your Coyote, but if you are just contemplating putting the intake on it will only hurt you up to about 6500 RPM. Even with the right tune up it will be a negative up to about 5500 vs. the production intake.

The throttle location is in the most critical clearance area which is kind of unfortunate. My measurement was to the top of the factory engine cover, which sits a lot higher than the intake itself, so I don't have a great feel from your pictures of what the height difference really is.
There might be some pictures in my gallery that could help with your project:
No, the boss intake doesn't fit. I set my hood on for the first time last week and it seems to be about an inch too tall. I'm using the new Ford Racing Cobra Jet intake on my Boss engine, but I also have a Boss intake.
Yeh the Coyote engine is huge compared to a SBC! The heads only clear the side panels of the FFR33 by an inch or so. The CJ intake nicely compliments the monster look...I only hope it does kill the lowend torque too much. Even though it is a Boss long block, I'm sure I won't be spinning it to the 8K rev limit.
My transmission is a Tremec TKO600. I bought it local (Detroit) and the supplier recommended the internal hydraulic throught bearing (Mcleod). But after reading the forums and my first attempt at adjusting, looks like a big mistake that I may need to undo later? The ECU is the Ford Racing controls pack. The advantage to being in the Detroit area, there are many reasonable sources for custom calibrating the controller on the dyno.

Read around, I think I saw someone in one of the other sub-forums (Roadster?) talking about just that; the intake is designed for high-revving, so I you are not getting it wound up regular, your low-end torque will suffer…
