The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty, in addition to visible tweaks, introduced with it a couple of latest engines, and one particularly actually grabbed the eye of automobile fanatics: the 7.3-liter V8 named “Godzilla.” We suspect the mixture of the large displacement and a nice identify had one thing to do with fanatics’ pleasure, which frequently got here with the query of, what else might we put it in? Now fanatics can cease speculating, since Ford has made a crate model available for buy by itself.
Despite the formidable displacement and identify, the Godzilla engine is not significantly mind-blowing as far as output is involved. It makes 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Those are strong numbers, however for those who’re engines for a automobile, maybe a Mustang, you may be higher off with a Coyote 5.0-liter V8. One specified just like the Mustang GT’s model will make 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, rev greater, and its all-aluminum development needs to be lighter than the iron-block Godzilla.
That being stated, the additional torque of the Godzilla and its development for heavy obligation truck use would doubtless make it a good alternative for a traditional and even not-so-classic pickup truck or SUV. It additionally prices lower than the Coyote at $8,150 versus $9,500. The aftermarket is already creating efficiency components for the large engine, too. Whipple has a supercharger setup that can enhance it to 700 horsepower. Finally, for those who actually wish to use the engine for a automobile, it does appear to slot in the Fox Body Mustang and even the present Mustang.
