    This is so awsome. The fact that there gonna make kits to be able to drop it in a fox and maybe even SN95 too.

    Look how tiny that thing is in there compared to a mod motor swap!!!
    Tiny AND an extra 144 cubes?!?!?

    Please tell me a HO version of this is showing up in the Raptor & Mustang.....

    Just need the aftermarket to develop an intake manifold more performance oriented and some cams.

    It won't bolt up, it's a modular bellh from what I've read. Be a nice swap for an older v10 or 5.4 truck tho!

    Why would you want a engine that makes less HP and weighs 200lbs more in a mustang. And they just need to put the mustang GT motor back in the raptor.

    It is a truck engine. The emphasis will always be low end torque on a truck motor.

    It wouldn't take much for a performance version for the Mustang.

    Aluminum block
    Tuned intake manifold
    Exhaust 'header' rather than manifold
    Tweaked cam profile for more RPM

    Uh, did you even watch Brian Wolfe's thoughts on power production of this engine?
    Or, because this motor in truck form only makes 30hp less than a complex 4 valve mod motor plus an additional 55ft/lbs of torque?

    And if you look at what I wrote...I asked for a "HO" version, which I would assume would come with an aluminum block.

    That would be a lot of money for Ford to spend on R&D to make that out perform the coyote thats in the mustang and then it would still be limited exactly like the LS is. It just isnt a smart business move.

    Designing an intake and cam would be stupid cheap. CFD is a wonderful thing. An Al block has already be designed. Care to hazard a guess how much lower the production costs are on the current 7.3L engine vs a Gen 3 Coyote?

    Would be tits to see a more aggressive cam/tune 7.3 in the Raptor. Doubtful with the Ecoboost Ford is pushing, but hey I can dream.

    Well you never know...Ford started with the "modular the world" mantra, then "ecoboost the world"...but now they're building old school(with new tech) high volume pushrod engines...?
    Sooooo....who knows?!?

    If they continue to take input from Brian Wolfe...good things may happen...?

    I'm also excited to see there is still a deep enough relief in the back of the crank for a pilot bearing...
    Considering the current state of the manual trans...I'm sort of surprised manufacturers haven't eliminated it for machining cost cutting.
