    Someone swapped a Ford Coyote 5.0 V8 into a Cayman because 'Merica - 424 wheel horsepower naturally aspirated Porsche 987 Cayman

    Ok, it's hard to hate this swap. First of all, Porsche neuters the Cayman to keep it from stepping on the 911's toes and that is a load of BS. Imagine if the Cayman had the naturally aspirated power to compliment the brilliant chassis? Well, wonder no more.

    Power by the Hour Performance decided to do a Cayman swap nobody else had done. They chose the Ford Mustang Coyote 5.0 liter V8 and the engine certainly is a great naturally aspirated candidate.

    Not only does it look amazing sitting in the middle of the car it finally gives the Cayman the power and torque it deserves without a sacrifice in response. How does 424 horsepower and 364 lb-ft of torque at the wheels sound? Especially when you factor in the increase over the factory Porsche flat-6 baseline at 257 horsepower and 218 lb-ft of torque.

    Speaking of sound just listen to the video below. This is just a badass Cayman. The only thing that could have made it better would be if they went with a Voodoo V8. Something tells us after seeing this swap there is a person out there willing to try exactly that.

    The cayman platform can definitely handle the power even with the unreliable TPC turbo kits.
    If you dig a bit deeper, you'll also notice that the 997 generation 911 and the cayman share the same exact piping for the power steering, but the cayman has extra resistors causing the power steering to overheat on track days and to have less responsiveness than a 911. Get rid of the power steering resistor and you have a 911 steering.
