G Force is Your Ford Godzilla 7.3 Liter Gas Engine Swap Headquarters
Godzilla—A Beast of an Engine Conversion
As soon as the Ford 7.3 liter Godzilla gas engine was introduced, many in the performance world immediately started thinking about what vehicle they could shoehorn the beast into. It’s almost as if Ford mixed a little old with the new and designed this engine for modern hot rodding.
The Godzilla 7.3 liter gas engine is a return to the big displacement pushrod V8 engines of yesteryear. With around 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque from the factory, the 7.3 Godzilla motor has the power to bring any hot rod alive.
Godzilla engines have the internal durability to push into the 1,000 HP range if you want to build more horsepower. Ford used a cast iron block and forged crank held down with main caps secured using four main bolts & two lateral cross bolts on each cap.
The Godzilla engine block is a stable platform that can withstand big horsepower. Ford also employed aluminum heads which breathe well and keep the weight down over cast iron. Decreasing the weight in the front of your performance vehicle is usually a huge benefit, especially if you’re looking for rear wheel traction.
While the Ford Godzilla engine is physically smaller than the 5.0 Coyote, it is still a large motor that was originally built for huge engine bays on Ford Super Duty trucks. Swapping the beast into most cars will often require making some space around the engine to get it to fit.
From the factory, Ford added a fairly large oil cooler to the driver’s side of the oil pan. Depending on the swap you want to do, the oil cooler can interfere with K-members, the motor mount, as well as steering linkage and exhaust on the driver’s side.
