    For the 7,300.00 time, that iron block Motor home engine IS NOT A PERFORMANCE oriented engine. It is built for heavy duty truck applications to tow shit, and has no place in a performance vehicle like the Mustang or Raptor. Ford isn't going to invest money into an engine because a couple of knuckleheads want to peel "oot" and go drag racing against F250's. Ford will probably use the 5.0 or 5.2 PERFORMANCE engines that already exist.

    This is a Mustang forum, not a Raptor, F250, or stupid engine swap forum. So why don't you F250 dreamers make like horse shit and hit the dusty trail. The stupid engine swap forum is that way ---->. slap.gif

    So when a alloy version is made.......then what?

    Honestly, the Mod Motor platform is proving to be very unreliable......
    As we speak, the 7.3 team is vying for a place in the F-150.
    If that happens? You can say bye bye to the Coyote......
    Remember, the F-150 is what carries the Coyote.
    Without the truck, there would not be one in the Stang.

    So yea, a smaller displacement version of the Godzilla platform
    could find it's way into the half ton truck.
    This would leave either the 3.5TT as a possible option or they
    utilize the Godzilla platform in one form or the other.

    Or we end up with a hybrid four banger/electric.......

    The Toronto Maple Leafs? I have to admit you are correct.


    But remember that Basketball was invented by a Canadian, so it is fitting the title make its way up here eventually...

    When Ford makes a High Performance Alloy version for the Mustang it will be acceptable to discuss it on a Mustang Forum. As of right now, the 7.3 is an iron block heavy duty F250 truck motor developed specifically for towing so stop making an ass out of yourself by talking about it on M6G.

    Ford has multiple high performance engines and the 7.3 isn't one of them and never will be.

    Right, because any talk of hotroding or non mustang engine motor swaps are expressly prohibited.

    Let us to continue to not discuss any means of head, cam and intake swaps on any mustangs, as those items were not originally developed by FMC.

    Let us also pretend that mustangs never had cast iron blocks from the factory, and insist that any cast iron engine would be suitable for nothing more than a boat anchor...because iron.

    Norm, we're getting stomped by the ls........those things are like maggots on a corpse.

    The Coyote just isn't the go to engine of choice for the masses.

    People tend to forget that this is not the 1950's.
    Iron alloys have been developed....
    Casting techniques have advanced.....

    Now days you don't need as much iron as days gone by.

    Nascar and Pro Stock (NHRA) still use iron blocks.

    Wonder who would win. If the pro 7.3 swap guys took on the anti 7.3 swap guys in a dodge ball game? Or a knife fight? Hmmm. Anyway.

    Sales results says you're wrong for the billionth time. And I'll stop you before you start: drag guys who do custom builds and engine swaps are NOT 'the masses'. Get a clue. You're as sheltered as they come.

    Try to read what I typed instead of what you were hoping to hear. I said absolutely nothing about the Coyote.

    So I'll try again . . . what if you started with this 7.3, cut about half an inch out of the stroke, and threw away all those pushrods. Maybe cut the deck height back a bit, maybe not. Don't you think that 6.5-ish liters of OHC V8 (properly developed) would have all those 6.2 LS engines for breakfast? Even if the OHC was only a 3-valve?
