Abstract

A prototype Ford Motor Company stroker Coyote engine was designed and built to achieve high horsepower output in naturally aspirated trim. Variables including cylinder block, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, cylinder heads, intake camshafts, exhaust camshafts, intake manifold, exhaust manifolds, and throttle body were examined and then modified or built to achieve the maximum power output. It was predicted that the increase in stroke and air flow would achieve a horsepower-to-cubic inch ratio of 2:1. It was concluded that this is possible with a few minor modifications to the prototype. A recommendation for further study is enclosed.
