MONSTER MOTOR! Ford Performance unleashes the Godzilla 7.3-liter crate engine

MONSTER MOTOR!

Ford Performance unleashes the Godzilla 7.3-liter crate engine

Ford shocked the world by developing a large-displacement, pushrod engine for its 2020 F250 Super Duty pickups. Instantly, Blue Oval fans dreamt of the swapping the 7.3-liter engine, nicknamed Godzilla, into their project cars. Now enthusiasts can realize that dream, courtesy of the new 7.3L V8 Ford crate engine from Ford Performance.

“The 7.3-liter is designed for maximum durability in the harshest environments, given that our customers live, and work in these conditions every day,” Joel Beltramo, Ford manager for gas V8 engines, said when the engine debuted in the big trucks. “This engine has the largest displacement in its class and is designed to provide benefits in key areas like power, durability, ease of maintenance and total operating costs.”

For those looking for a modern, 445 cubic-inch engine swap option, Ford Performance Parts now offers its 7.3L V8 Ford crate engine. Retailing for $8,150, this 430-horsepower engine is ruggedly built and full of potential.

Built with features like large main bearings, a forged-steel crankshaft, piston-cooling jets, and a variable-displacement oil pump, this engine presents a tantalizing engine-swap proposition for those wanting something other than a Coyote 5.0-liter.

Based on a cast-iron block topped by aluminum cylinder heads, this 10.5:1 compression engine delivers 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 475 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm right out of the crate. Obviously with a different intake and camshaft profile, this engine has the potential to make some impressive power. 

Currently there is no Control Pack listed for the engine, so you might need to deploy an aftermarket EFI system. However, Ford Performance Parts says you can call its Techline for front-end accessory drive and Control Pack information.
