Big trucks and van.
That didn't take long , fox body project
It looks right at home. FPRP should have swap kits ready to go as soon as these hit the street. SHOULD....
I imagine will be in a lot of surf boats...
Crusader needs to marinize them in a hurry.
My dad ordered a 2020 F350 7.3 with 4:30 gears, dealer said they start producing them the 17th. I want to play with his before I get one for myself.
17th of November?
Awsome. Please post up what you think about it. I was thinking that exact motor and gear package in an F250 tremor
As long as that A10 trans has good overdrive options, Id consider an F350 version. But if it doesnt tow nearly as much as a Powerstroke, Ill opt for the 6.7.
It's just going to have to rev to pull. If you're not rolling heavy all the time the 7.3 is a legit option.
Agree. I suppose my hope is that the 4.30s needed to get the gasser in its power band when towing can be offset for unloaded daily driving by the sheer number of gear ratios in the transmission. No reason with that many gears that it cant get more than acceptable fuel mileage unloaded.
Its a 7000 pound HD truck, I get it. But Id like to think with the advancement in powertrain technology it should be possible. Then again, I cant wait to see how the 6.7 Powerstroke is revised and the numbers it can put up.
It shouldnt be hard to get to 500bhp and torque. A tune and some mods *cough*headers*cough* should help.
I'll have an article next week that touches on the new PSD power numbers. I'd be really happy if a properly equipped 7.3L could knock down 18MPG at 65-70MPH on the highway.
If it did that, Id say I just found my new truck. Well, after the wife gets her new Rubicon.
Honestly, even 17MPG would be good. 18 would be spectacular.
No reason to buy the 150 if that is the case.
I'm thinking a lot of guys who bought 5.0 F-150s just to get a V8 will end up in a 7.3L Duty.
If Ford decides to axe the Coyote in the F150 because of CAFE, and they have a 7.3 waiting in the Super Duty that would be a win for Ford.
Improve the Corporate Fuel average AND move more units of Super Duty. Plus, youre a set of headers away from what is probably a throaty exhaust note.
Isnt ford working on a 4.8L v8 to replace the 5.0 in the F150?
Wasnt aware of that. Interesting if true.
More on that in the near future.
