A truck engine? better choices, how about a 427 SideOiler, 427 SOHC, Boss 9, 5.8 SC Cobra, 5.2 Predator (those will start showing up on ebay after the first Cars and Coffee a 2020 Cobra goes to)...

I want to know what some consider low revving engine.
These days? 6000 rpm. And the 3-valve 4.6 in my S197 certainly falls into the low-revving category, OHC notwithstanding.


I agree with Big Boss - this 7.3 might be an OK or even a decent swap for a Fox/SN95/New Edge Mustang (replacing the little Windsor pushrod motor or the absolutely underwhelming original 2-valve OHC modular motor). But even there, not in its current truck duty configuration.

Out of place in anything newer.

I don't meet the good Dr's criteria for voting, so I didn't. Probably don't need to vote on this anyway.
