See the power of the 780 hp Ford Godzilla 7.3-liter V8.September 14, 2020
Team Z Motorsports has decided to use Ford’s powerful 7.3-liter Godzilla V8 engine in their new project. The latter will be based on a machine small enough for this engine – a sports coupe Ford Foxbody Mustang.
The guys from Team Z Motorsports in Detroit (USA) are widely known for their projects to create the most powerful hot rods using modern and very powerful motors. The team plans to take one of Ford’s smallest cars, the Foxbody Mustang, and incorporate the largest Ford V8 engine to date, the all-new 7.3-liter Godzilla V8. While squeezing a big engine into a subcompact is common for the guys, the new “ingredients” make this project interesting, as the Godzilla V8’s 7.3-liter engine has great potential for tuning.
Brian Wolfe is a lifelong Mustang racer and former Ford engineer who once served as head of Ford Racing Technology.
His deep knowledge of Ford engineering and passion for racing cars led him to take on the project with the help of Dave Zimmerman, Team Z Motorsports Team Leader. Cramming a Godzilla V8 into a Foxbody Mustang is a great way to test the limits of Ford’s new engine. I will note. that this motor is primarily intended for use in huge, full-size trucks such as the F-250. In the latter, the 7.3-liter Ford Godzilla V8 engine produces 430 horsepower.
At the Team Z Motorsports booth, the engine produces around 600 horsepower. According to the plans of the engineers of the team, the total power of this power unit can be increased to 1600 horsepower.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Ford began selling a “box” engine 7.3L ‘Godzilla‘ V8. The American brand began selling a “box” V8 engine with a displacement of 7.3 liters and a power of 430 hp. The engine has an improved design and relatively small size.
