Looking more like funnels than intake ports, this view hints at why the Coyote intake valves flow 4 percent better than their GT500 brothers. Naturally, all Coyote ports were made as vertical as possible within the production car limitations that rankle every hot rodder. "The exhaust port is a little low, it's at modular height," carped Adam Christian, but it still exceeds Ford's flow goals. Interestingly, the Coyote exhaust port doesn't quite flow as well as a GT500, but only because the Coyote uses a smaller exhaust valve to better package the combustion chamber. And if this intake port looks simple, it is. What you see is what you get: just two symmetrically round ports blended into an oval at the manifold parting flange. There are no asymmetries, swirl-inducing curves, or flow-inhibiting auxiliary throttles.
