Ford Performance selling Super Duty “Godzilla” 7.3-liter V-8 as crate engine
Ever since Ford announced the 7.3-liter pushrod V-8 for the then-new 2017 line of Super Duty trucks, Blue Oval faithful have been dreaming of the potential housed in Ford’s only big-inch motor. The brand that has built its reputation on small, overhead-cam V-8s over the past 30 years departed from the typical recipe in order to satiate the demands of Ford’s heavy-duty workhorses in the F-250-and-higher chassis. In its factory spec, the single cammer churns up 430 hp at 5500 rpm and 475 lb-ft at 4000 rpm—most of which is available just as the motor wakes up from its idle speed.
These same numbers carry over into Ford’snewly released 7.3-liter crate engine, placing the showroom-stock engine high up on the food chain of Ford’s crate engines for a few bucks less than some of the racier Windsor small-block offerings.
