Ford Performance Talks About Its Raft Of Support For The 7.3L Godzilla Engine – Announces Creation Of Megazilla Crate Engine

This video from PRI is great on a couple of levels but for starters the biggest one is the fact that Ford Performance is going to fully support the 7.3L Godzilla platform engine. For whatever reason, there was virtually no support for the 6.2L truck engine that came before the more traditional cam in block 7.3 but seeing what the company has cooking up is what makes this video shine. From the control pack they are developing for swaps, the fact that there will be blocks, heads, and other hard parts sold separately for builds, and loads of support parts made by the company, it seems that the 7.3 engine will be around for a while and the company sees the benefits of helping to get them into the hands of hot rodders that love their blue ovals.

The biggest tid-bit in this video is the announcement of a super secret crate engine program called “MegaZilla”. While no details are given here it stands to reason that this will be a boosted (likely supercharged) version of the 7.3L engine. With the way that Chrysler changed the crate engine game with the Hellephant we’re not expecting four digit horsepower but we are thinking 800 or so and sold in higher volume.

The long story short here is that Ford Performance being involved with the 7.3 engine is good for everyone. Their engineering will open paths and opportunities for hot rodders to take it even a step beyond what the factory engineers are going to do. This will be awesome.

    I’m a life long Ford fan , But until this is a sub $1000 engine with a cheap trans
    and Microsquirt controlled . Windsors ,FEs and Limas are for my budget .

    I’m excited about this engine, and I’m an old school guy. I think a lot of guys don’t see the impact this thing will have. It has a lot going for it; big displacement, compact size, good airflow. Know that availability will improve, because it is going into the fleet/box trucks. It all takes time, but if we don’t get legislated out of existence, the 445 can be a go to hot rod swap engine. I’m not brand loyal, so to me, it can fit in a lot of vehicles. I just think its wonderful Ford went the big inch pushrod route, now I won’t have to rework 50 year old parts. This thing out powers nearly all the factory musclecar engines we like to fool with, and it does it on pump gas.
