More horsepower does give more ET flexibility. Fuel injection adds flexibility.

Not necessary though, you’re correct. Definitely more fun.
In the old days, we would swap engines in anything. It didn't have to make sense. We put a Cadillac engine in a 50 Mercury. But, now the Cadillac had no engine, so we put the mercury flathead in it. Talk about a slug! But, as I have gotten old, practicality has taken over... maybe too much. Except when it comes to buying cars. I wish it worked better there!

the only reason it was replaced was because he's pushing the engine to 1800hp
The ONLY reason is cause multiple test mules went BOOM on relatively minor boost.
So lets run down the N/A list bottom up:
~ block stock
~ crank stock
~ custom oiling
~ rods custom
~pistons custom
~ cam custom
~ pushrods custom
~ heads wildly ported wouldn't even live on the street
~ rocker gear custom
~ intake manifold custom
~ custom fuel rails
~ID2000 injectors
~TB off the shelf
~ Headers custom
~ standalone controller pack

Now lets add boost to an IRON BLOCK for 1800 hp:
~ Filled block
~ custom crank
~ crank support girdle
~ ARP everything which ARP doesn't sell
~ Aluminum rods so the crank doesn't take the brunt and shatter the main caps
because IRON BLOCK
~ etc, etc.

So yeah, your 7.3 GODZILLA can make power. But it ain't gonna be cheap and it's only going to be
competitive in a MAX EFFORT application with a shitload of money.

Gen 2 + coyote:
~ fore return style fuel system
~ ID1000 min
~ boost

GODZILLA WHO?

It doesn't sound like its a viable option for you. What is your current setup?

The 7.3 gasser is a boat anchor. Ford took a MONSTROUS 10 year step back in technology to appease a small crowd.

~ custom fuel rails
~ID2000 injectors, only needed for 800+NA hp
~TB off the shelf

Everything in red you have incorrect.

Wait, you would run a stock longblock gen2 coyote to 1800hp? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Your entire post shows you still don't understand jack. It's obvious you have not read any literature or watched any videos on the Godzilla engine, as your post shows your ignorance.

Seriously though, $1500 worth of parts is going to get you 600+ hp out of the Godzilla once aftermarket goes to production. That's dirt cheap, especially when you look at what a typical 600hp performance crate engine costs. Add another $1500 for a decent port, upgraded valves and springs and you're looking at 750+HP street-able NA horsepower. Again, that's dirt cheap compared to a crate engine...and you're not touching that without boost in a coyote.

Same weight as a supercharged coyote.

I don't understand JACK? Ok Karen.. speaking of which, you know what the JACKshaft in the GODZILLA oil pan is for? And how much torque it can hold? Anyways, let your ignorance fly in this thread.. I'll be in the background LMFAO at your. Cheers.

You know what, you're right. You have far more insight into the new 7.3L engine than Brian Wolfe (was involved with Godzilla and was the director of Ford Racing Technology) who will be using the stock oiling system for 1800hp. I have no idea why I ever doubted you.

I detect a note of sarcasm!

Probably true (I'll take your word for it).

So maybe if the extra 100+ lbs in the 7.3 makes it a boat anchor, I guess we could also say that the extra 100+ lbs for forced induction on a Coyote is the crutch for the Coyote's relatively small displacement.

Po-tay-to, po-tah-to.

So it's a 130lb boat anchor vs 130lb lead weight.

Speaking of engine swaps , I saw that Jay Leno has an early small Bronco with a 2020 GT500 engine swapped into it. His Bronco has a 5 speed Tremec trans mounted to the engine. I think he had help from Ford and some company called Sema Builders to make the swap. If Leno can put a big GT500 engine in a Bronco with the small engine compartment , surely it should be possible to put a 7.3 liter Godzilla in a Mustang.

I would hope a celebrity who involves Ford in the process could a Ford engine in a Ford vehicle.

Although not sure why the T5 was used
