Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla Engine Gets ProCharger Upgrade, Makes 965 HP

An motor intended for Ford’s Tremendous Responsibility pickups may not look like a monster electricity maker, but the huge motor can deliver impressively large quantities with the appropriate hardware and tune. A new movie from the REVan Evan YouTube channel shows just how a lot electricity a ProCharger could carry to the desk, although the seven.3-liter Godzilla motor has some other upgrades, way too. Nonetheless, it makes a bit extra electricity than predicted, which boundaries its last output.

The motor built a stout 965 horsepower (719 kilowatts) and 845 pound-feet (1,one hundred forty five Newton-meters) of torque on the dyno, although it could have built a lot extra. The motor had gas injectors from a GT500, upped to seventy three psi, although they weren’t pumping a large sufficient volume for the motor. Bigger injectors could have the motor creating 975 to 1,000 hp (727-746 kW). The remarkable output was accomplished with considerably less than nine pounds of strengthen tension.

The motor had other upgrades besides the ProCharger, together with Phase two heads, a dry sump, upgraded pistons, and a mild cam. It had its inventory consumption and throttle physique, way too. More hardware upgrades, like a new consumption and pulley, could see the motor making as a lot as 1,two hundred hp (894 KW), which is much extra than the 850 hp (633 kW) that the client needs. 

The new generate motor is proving pretty adaptable as previous films have shown the seven.3-liter V8 with a variety of configurations creating a variety of outputs. It did not just take long for tuners to just take the crate motor from its inventory 440 hp (320 kW) and 475 lb-ft (644 Nm) to 780 hp (581 kW) and outside of, hitting 1,100 hp (820 kW) by the end of the yr. It looks like there is extra for tuners to wring out of the motor, so we’ll keep an eye out for the following substantial-output tune.
