I assume you mean the regular Coyote Aluminator? Looked at it. Thought about it. For my purposes, just not seeing the $3.5K added cost. Out of the box, it doesn't have any additional power. Of course it has more upside with power adders. For more cost plus custom tuning. But for my street driving I'm very satisfied with the stock Gen 2 Coyote in my Roadster. With the revised intake, straight tube headers, and custom tune it's already better than stock. For my street driving, I'm basically never using all of it. Plus if I really want to, guys put power adders on the stock Coyote and within reason it holds up pretty well. I think I'm going to stay with the stock production version. It's all I need, and then some.

I'm also assuming you're not talking about the $16K+ 5.2 XS version. Cool engine and looks amazing. But that's just not happening.
