Ford launches 7.3L Godzilla V8 boxed engine

June 30, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The American brand began selling a “boxed” V8 engine with a displacement of 7.3 liters and a capacity of 430 hp. The engine has an improved design and relatively small size.

Ford’s V8 Modular Engine has been around for over 30 years. The so-called “boxed” motor with the upper cam arrangement began to replace the engines with the pusher back in 1990. Last year, this engine was announced for the 2020 F-250 full-size truck. Now, the engine is available for purchase as a “boxed” engine, ready for installation in any suitable engine compartment.

The power of the 7.3-liter Ford Godzilla V8 engine is 430 horsepower, which is not very consistent with its size.

However, this power plant, which develops a torque of 644 Nm at 4000 rpm, is designed for use under the hoods of trucks. As representatives of the company themselves note, this engine is designed for those who need a lot of torque, but the diesel engine is not suitable for it.

Using the cam block design, the thrust motor is more compact than the top cam configuration, whether it be two cams or four. This means that it should fit easier in the engine compartments of vehicles, and this means that it can be used for various projects.

Currently, the Ford Performance sports division offers this monstrous engine for $ 8,150. In addition to the engine itself, you will receive a throttle body and exhaust manifolds, an oil pan, all the necessary coils and ignition wires, a stand and brackets for lifting.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Ford showed a new generation Ford F-150 pickup.
