GM and Mopar both use much larger displacement engines.
Both get around the same fe or better than the 5.0, please explain why?
just as I thought you couldn't get any dumber.. you had to go one up yourself.

Seriously......you need to check the fe of all three in their respected shared markets.
Pretty even regardless of displacement.
This goes for emissions too.

Please don't quote back Ford's advertised fe claims, they're in enough hot water.

For all the naysayers out there......"Ford Mustang EcoBoost" on Facebook has a new post where a 5.3 LS Chevy is being swapped.
Mustang 6G would not allow me to tag them......

This makes me sick and makes me more determined to do a 7.3 swap.

My dear Erik...


There is more to life than cars.


There is more to this thread than a 7.3 swap.


You came here for a social reason.


And you got it in spades.


So let it go.

Thanks to Erik427 for posting on this thread I was introduced to the Yellow Bullet forum. I find the forum quite interesting. I enjoyed reading the Factory Stock thread. Quite interesting.

You are very welcome.
As you can see, I'm very much a Ford Guy.
But I'm a Ford Guy who lives in the real world of Racing, the entire world of racing.

And...


Some of us are also Ford guys as in every car I ever bought was a Ford. I was given a GM car once and all the motor did was leak oil. Car would go 147mph so there was that - but the oil leaks...


And that is the reason for wanting the 7.3 - Because it’s a Ford production V8 engine!


Some guys here are truly epic Ford fans btw...


But the real reason I’m posting (and only posting if someone bumped it up) is this:



And you went for the trifecta.

Toronto Raptors - 105

Milwaukee Bucks - 99

One more and into the NBA finals!

Just hit my mailbox . . . this one's for Erik and maybe Fat. The engine's even a Ford.

The coke bottle overflow is the best.



Still no word on the 7.3.


One thing I kept secret was the speculation of its use in the F150 as that would spell the demise of the Coyote. This was last February. Things have progressed. That could be why no hard data yet.


There was even speculation of its use in the Raptor - I kid you not. We may still do a doco on the swap but the interior of that Mazda! I don’t want that in the Mustang!
