Such a monumental engine has a corresponding name – Godzilla. Such a power unit with a cast-iron cylinder block costs more than $ 8,000.

Ford began selling huge 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 gasoline engine, known as Godzilla. Such an engine, which has already taken its place in the current Ford Performance catalog, can be purchased assembled together with attachments – such a tandem will be appreciated by tuners. It costs $ 8,150 new

Ford’s 7.3-liter V8 back in 2019 tested the heavy F-Series pickups. The output of the new motor reaches 436 hp.

Among the main advantages of such a motor, developers call it amazing performance (even when operating in harsh conditions) and unpretentiousness. The engine also got a completely modern design: cylinder heads made of aluminum, a variable valve timing system and distributed injection.
The compression ratio here is 10.5: 1. At the same time, the engine itself, despite its solid working volume and architecture, turned out to be quite light – 244 kg.

The tuners have every reason to carefully look at the Ford novelty. Such a V8 7.3 can well prove itself in the most daring projects of a tuning studio. So, in the spring, the guys from Whipple came up with a three-liter supercharger for it. They managed to increase the power of the unit to 710 “horses”.

Earlier, experts listed cars with the most problematic engines. The compilation of the anti-rating was done by the experts of the Consumer Reports agency. It hit the Subaru Impreza, Outback and Forester, as well as the old BMW 3-Series, etc.
