    Just think of the potential of a Godzilla built on current tech, not old ass pushrod tech.

    The Godzilla tech is as current as it gets. Push rod engines flat out work and get the job done cheap. One is not necessarily better than the other.

    The Godzilla engine is much more compact than the Coyote so it'll fit into narrower engine bays e.g. those of classic Mustangs, has one camshaft/phaser instead of four, and less moving parts, making it cheaper to manufacture.
    Watch the price of Coyote engines drop like a stone as the Godzilla becomes the new swap favorite. It's success is guaranteed with Ford Performance already selling crate engines and control packs.

    We already have the LS if you want a small package!

    I still have a few pushrod engines around, but I embraced the OHC design. That also has been around for a long time.

    But I want a Ford push rod V8 to litter the salvage yards, that's roughly the size of a 351W, that has a forged crank and that displaces roughly 445 cubic inches. Also, I don't want an LS.

    Coyote who?

    The 7.3 will become the standard for Ford performance. There goes Tokyo.

    There are already performance parts for the Godzilla. This one made 133hp above baseline with heads, cam, intake manifold.

    641hp/550lbft STD
    508hp/515lbft STD Baseline

    Baseline = Stock engine, no front accessories (EWP), open throttle body (no air cleaner), optimized tune 93 octane, dyno headers, STD correction (4% higher than SAE).

    Hmm the 5.2 Voodoo is rated higher stock for stock.
    526 hp vs 508 hp....
    Im sure a coyote can make 600+ n/a hp with the right mods.
    So whats the big deal again with 'zilla?

    Then you can run the 5.2 and enjoy it. Lots of other would rather have the 7.3 gasser.

    With a much bigger displacement, the Godzilla has the potential to make a lot more torque than the Coyote & Voodoo. It can also make more HP and require much less rpm to do so.
    When you consider the Godzilla's more compact dimensions, it becomes an easier swap than the Coyote into older Mustangs that originally came with a pushrod V8.

    The 7.3 is an iron block engine. I forget the weight I read. I think it's around 550-570 lbs.

    The leading rumor is a 6.8 version is pending for use in the F150 and some version, maybe all of the Mustang(s). In both, the case for using an aluminum block is strong.

    I made 609HP with my All Motor Coyote, I could probably buy close to 3 Godzilla Motors for the amount of money it took to make that much HP if HP was your only concern.
