Perhaps the best view of the intake’s layout is from the bottom. The runners are arranged like a pair of hands with their fingers crossed—too bad the top of the runners is covered by the plenum—it would be a sexy display of intake trumpets indeed. The left and right air paths through the plenum are also obvious from this view. The runner spacing at the cylinder head and all gaskets are carryovers from the Coyote, which this intake bolts right onto. It’s worth about 8 high-rpm horsepower and a real low-rpm torque loss as a direct bolt-on. To optimize the shorter intake runner tuning with the intake valve event, it’s important to close the intake valve sooner. Adam Christian says advancing the intake cam 5-10 degrees and raising the rpm limit is what everyone has been missing so far when bolting this intake onto a Coyote. That, and don’t look for any power gains below 5,250 rpm no matter what. It sounds like a real terror would be more rear axle gearing, this intake, and a centrifugal blower.
