When it comes to muscle car parts, sometimes the part is more exciting than the whole—as long as that part is a named “Godzilla.” And now Ford enthusiasts can get it for what many consider a steal, directly from the manufacturer.
Ford has listed its 7.3-liiter V-8 engine for sale at $8,150. Originally unveiled for its 2019 Super Duty trucks, Godzilla has been dubbed the most powerful engine in its class. Thanks to port fuel injection and 10.5:1 compression, it puts out 430 horsepower at 5,500 RPM, and 475 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 RPM. In addition to an iron block, aluminum heads and a forged steel crankshaft, Godzilla also comes with a throttle body, both exhaust manifolds, ignition coils, and an oil pan and cooker. But why stop at 430 horsepower? Enthusiasts are reporting numbers as high as 600 buff horses with a few basic modifications—and without any boost.
And thanks to its compact camshaft-in-block design, this 445-cubic-inch pushrod powerhouse can fit into a plenum of engine bays like the Raptor pickup or Mustang. We dare you to stuff this giant gas-fed V8 into your passion project ride.
