Alright all you V8 lovers out there. This one is for you! This news should get your engines revving (literally).

The Godzilla engine, aka the 7.3-liter gasoline-powered V8 found in the 2020 Ford F-250 is now available as crate engine, through Ford Performance.

We now know what engines will be available for the 2021 Ford F-150, which will have a V8, but not the popular Godzilla engine, and we also know that the new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will also have a V8, but again, not the Godzilla engine.

The Coyote engine found in both of these vehicles is powerful, fun and loud and should be enough power to where consumers would likely not do a swap of this Godzilla engine. However, for all those 4-cylinder Mustangs and the Ecoboost F-150 and Mustangs out there, Ford Performance has made this engine available to you.

The good news, as reported by my colleague Patrick Rall, the 7.3-liter V8 will physically fit in the engine bay of the current Mustang and the current F-150. Patrick further went on to speculate that there’s a chance that the Godzilla engine will be offered in the next-generation Ford Raptor.

I don’t believe that will happen, but it would certainly be interesting and the feedback I received from readers regarding this engine was incredibly positive. Enthusiasts love this engine, there’s no doubt. Rather, I suspect the Raptor will get an Ecoboost engine and probably the Coyote V8 engine, tuned up for performance.

Godzilla crate engine from Ford Performance

Ford Performance Godzilla Crate Engine
According to the Ford Performance website, the 7.3-liter V8 engine crate package costs $8150. In the 2020 F-250 it has a horsepower rating of 430 and 475 pound-feet of torque.

The crate engine package includes the following:
• Cast iron block
• Aluminum cylinder heads
• Cam-in-block OHV design
• Forged steel crankshaft
• 430 HP at 5,500 rpm
• 475 lb./ft of torque at 4,000 rpm
• 10.5:1 compression
• Port fuel injection

The engine assembly includes:
• Intake and throttle body
• Left and Right exhaust manifolds
• Production oil pan/cooler
• Ignition coils and wires
• Production flex plate
• M-6038-73 shipping and storage cradle
• Factory lift brackets

This engine is assembled in Canada and a warranty is available when purchased through Ford Performance.

“The 7.3-liter is designed for maximum durability in the harshest environments given that our customers live and work in these conditions every day,” said Joel Beltramo, Ford manager for gas V8 engines. “This engine has the largest displacement in its class and is designed to provide benefits in key areas like power, durability, ease of maintenance and total operating costs.”

Whipple Stage 2 upgrade for 7.3-liter V8 engine

Whipple offers Supercharger System for 7.3-liter V8 Godzilla engine
As I reported on earlier this year, performance-oriented company Whipple is offering a Stage 2 system that makes 750 pound-feet of torque and 700 horsepower.

According to Whipple: “Nobody puts more time and resources into the development then Whipple. The proof is in the product, with more power per pound of boost than any other system.”

The key to making such incredible reliable power is in the Whipple unique twin screw supercharger, massive air-to-water intercooler, oversized Crusher air system and PCM programming that keeps the power-train safe and secure.
Whipple said: “Whether you’re looking for a daily driver that needs a little more punch or you’re craving a tire-frying, rubber shredding street machine, the Whipple Supercharger systems delivers like no other SC system today. Power from tip in to redline, the new Whipple SC system makes incredible power across the entire rpm range while maintaining industry leading drive-ability. Each Whipple system comes with the new Whipple Tomahawk flash tool which allows each customer to load the calibration into the PCM, read and erase codes, octane adjust capacity and the ability to customize wheel/axle sizes.”

Paired with Ford’s 10-speed transmission, this Whipple conversion adds an air temp sensor post intercooler while maintaining the stock sensor.

According to Whipple: “The 10-speed transmission is recalibrated to keep the engine in its peak torque range at nearly all RPM points along with keeping the off road, tow, eco and sport modes available so the user keeps all available options. No other aftermarket calibration can adapt and learn as the Whipple calibration.”

So, who is going to make a swap? I want to hear what you would put this engine in and how it goes. Leave me a comment with your swap story.

will it fit in a 1999 regular f250 its not a super duty
Sorry, but I have no idea
I would like to do this swap to my 1995 F-150 unfortunately way out of my price range
Let me know how it goes.
All the supposed "rejoicing" about a "Godzilla" so-called big-block engine for "swaps" in Ford "Fox bodies" yet no sign whatsoever of and no Ford-financed "automotive journalists" shilling of the "crate" 10-speed "Ford" automatic transmission you gotta "swap" in with "Godzilla" and no mention of all the other "mods" and "upgrades" and "swaps" necessary to get "Godzilla" into anything but the only "pllatforms" it will physically, mechanically and actually "swap" into which are Ford Super-Duty trucks that ALREADY HAVE "GODZILLA" UNDER THE HOOD. There is not now and never has been a Ford ANYTHING capable of true engine "swaps" without "swapping" significantly more than the "powerplant". And even "identical" Ford Motor Company vehicles have to be TRULY "identical" right down to the "VIN" for a "bolt-in swap" of "identical" powertrain parts. Ford managed to use FOUR different radiators in "identical" mid-1980s F-150 "heavy-duty" 4×4 pickups with 351 V-8s, automatic transmissions and air-conditioning in a SINGLE MODEL YEAR and any "salvage yard" parts guy will tell you that if the "VIN" doesn't match completely on the "donor vehicle" at some point in the "swap" of even "identical" parts or components and especially ENGINES AND POWERTRAINS AND THEIR "ACCESSORY SYSTEMS" your "swap" is going to go south because "BOLT-IN" AND "BOLT-ON" AND "BOLT-UP" ARE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THINGS AND THAT'S EXACTLY HOW FORD HAS ALWAYS "ENGINEERED" ITS PRODUCTS. THE "FORD FAMILY FORTUNE" RESULTS FROM SELLING NEW VEHICLES AND "SERVICE PARTS" FOR THEM AND MAKING THE VEHICLES AS "AFTERMARKET-PROOF" AS POSSIBLE INCLUDING "SWAPPING" USED AND EVEN "NOS" PARTS ONTO/INTO USED CARS AND TRUCKS FORD WANTS "TRADED IN" ON NEW CARS AND TRUCKS. AND USING THE "FOX-BODY MUSTANG" AS A "SWAP" CANDIDATE FOR "GODZILLA" ENGINES IS PRETTY HILARIOUS GIVEN HOW FEW "ENTHUSIASTS" HAVE EVER EVEN "SWAPPED" A 460 INTO ONE AND FOR THE EXACT SAME REASONS ONLY IDIOT "TUNERS" AND FORD-FINANCED "BUILDERS" WILL DO "GODZILLA SWAPS" FOR THEIR MORONIC "CUSTOMERS" WITH MORE DOLLARS THAN SENSE AFTER THE INITIAL "REJOICING" IS OVER AND "FORD ENTHUSIASTS" WHO AREN'T JUST "RECOVERING RICERS" ARE THE ONLY "MARKET" FOR GODZILLA "SWAPS". THAT REASON IS CALL IT A "FOX-BODY" OR AN "SN95" OR A "NEW MUSTANG" OR WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT, THE "MUSTANG PLATFORM" IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN A RE-SKINNED FALCON AND THE FALCON "PLATFORM" WAS NOT AND STILL IS NOT "ENGINEERED" TO BE A "MUSCLE CAR" MUCH LESS A "BIG-BLOCK" AND "HIGH-PERFORMANCE" CAR CAPABLE OF SAFELY, RELIABLY, DURABLY AND EFFICIENTLY PUTTING "450 HP" TO THE GROUND AT A FULL, REALISTIC "DAILY DRIVER" WEIGHT WITH EVEN 3PM "AVERAGE ADULT" PASSENGERS AND THEIR "LUGGAGE" ON A REAL "ROAD TRIP" IN THE U.S. DURING THE "SUMMER DRIVING SEASON" ON "PUMP GAS" AND IN REAL DRIVING CONDITIONS "COAST TO COAST" AND WITH AIR-CONDITIONING, CALIFORNIA EMISSIONS AND AT "FREEWAY" AND "HIGHWAY" SPEEDS. NOR HAS FORD BUILT A "BIG-BLOCK" ENGINE OF ANY KIND WITH A COMMON "FOOTPRINT" AND CAPABLE OF ANYTHING LIKE BEING "SWAPPED" FOR ANY FORD "SMALL-BLOCK" ENGINE ON ANYTHING APPROACHING A "BOLT-IN" BASIS AND EVEN WHERE "BOLT-IN" AND/OR "BOLT-ON" IS POSSIBLE "BOLT-UP" IS NOT. UNLESS YOU GO BUY A "FOX BODY" LESS ENGINE AND TRANS AND/OR "FRONT END DAMAGE" AND A 4-BANGER OR 6-CYLINDER "LX" AT THAT WITH POWER NOTHING, NO A/C ETC AND "BUILD" A REAL "DRAG CAR" FOR A FORD/MUSTANG-SPECIFIC "CLASS" AND GO 1/8 MILE BRACKET RACING EVEN IF THE "TIMESLIPS" ARE CORRECTED TO THE "QUARTER-MILE" WHICH HAS NEVER ACTUALLY BEEN "1320 FEET" IN THE "MODERN ERA" ANYWAY AS FAR AS ET GOES FOR ANY "BRACKET" CLASS, YOU'RE "WASTING" A "FOX BODY" AND ITS GOING TO BE MAYBE A "STREET-STRIP" CAR BUT NOT ONE YOU'LL EVER DRIVE "ON THE STREET" FOR MORE THAN MINUTES AND SINGLE-DIGIT MILES DURING A "CRUISE NIGHT" OR A QUICK "BLAST" TO CARS AND COFFEE ON A COOL SUNDAY MORNING "DOWNTOWN" AND ON "EMPTY" STREETS. BECAUSE YOU'LL NEVER KEEP IT COOL, YOUR A/C IF ANY WILL BE "DELETED", YOU WON'T HAVE POWER STEERING AND/OR BRAKES, THE HOOD "SCOOP" AND/OR "EXHAUST SYSTEM" REQUIRED WON'T BE "STREET LEGAL" AND TO GET IT TO MAKE - AND PUT TO THE GROUND "EFFICIENTLY" - THAT "BIG-BLOCK POWER" YOU'LL HAVE TO HAVE A "FRONT-HALFED" AND "BACK-HALFED" CAR THAT'S GOING TO WEIGH 4500 LBS. WITH "DRIVER AND PASSENGER" AND ENOUGH "PUMP GAS" TO GET YOU ANYWHERE WORTH GOING, THE "POWER ADDER(S) NECESSARY TO GET ANY RESPECTABLE "RWHP" NUMBERS AND THAT "FORD" 10-SPEED AUTO THAT'S A "TRUCK TRANSMISSION" TO GO ALONG WITH THE "TRUCK ENGINE" AND WHICH YOU CANNOT "SWAP" FOR ANY OTHER "GEARBOX" WITHOUT A "STAND ALONE COMPUTER" FOR THE ENGINE AND WHICH EVEN THEN TO "SWAP" WILL REQUIRE NON-SFI APPROVED "AFTERMARKET" PARTS AND PIECES. ALL TO GET A "BIG-BLOCK MUSTANG" AND IN YOUR OWN FORDTARD MIND "COMPETE" WITH "ALL" THE VERY FEW BIG-BLOCK "CHEVYS" ON THE "STREET" BUT IN A "FOX BODY" YOU'LL HAVE $40,000+ IN IF BUILT "RIGHT" AND PROBABLY $60,000 IN IF "BUILT" AS A REAL "SWAP". AND THAT WON'T "OUTRUN" ANYTHING BUT MAYBE ANOTHER "FOX-BODY" WITH A "COYOTE SWAP". ITS PRETTY HILARIOUS WHAT "SWAP" MEANS TO SUPPOSED "FORD ENTHUSIASTS" AND WHAT IT MEANS - AND IS - TO ALL OTHER AND "REAL" CAR GUYS AND ESPECIALLY "CHEVY GUYS". A REAL "CHEVY GUY" LOOKS AT THE LATE-MODEL FORD V8 "SWAPS" AND DOESN'T EVEN RECOGNIZE THEM AS "SWAPS" JUST LIKE WE DON'T CONSIDER PUTTING AN "LS" INTO A '69 CAMARO OR AN '89 CAMARO TO BE A "SWAP" ESPECIALLY IF/WHEN ITS SUPPOSEDLY "SMALL-BLOCK FOR SMALL-BLOCK". LIKE A FORD "FE" HAS NO SMALL-BLOOCK "COUNTERPART" SHARING A COMMON "FOOTPRINT" AND THEREFORE IS NOT A "BIG-BLOCK" SO DOES AN "LS" HAVE NO BIG-BLOCK "COUNTERPART" AND THEREFORE IS NOT A "SMALL-BLOCK". HELL, EVEN REAL CHEVY "SWAPS" OF 6-BANGERS FOR SMALL-BLOCKS V8S AREN'T/WEREN'T "BOLT-INS" UNTIL THE "MODERN ERA" AND EVEN THEN YOU HAVE TO HAVE A LOT OF "DONOR VEHICLE" PARTS TO CONNECT THE "POWERTRAIN" TO THE "POWERPLANT" AND BOTH TO THE "CHASSIS" AND/OR "CONTROLS". BUT BECAUSE MOST FORD/MUSTANG "ENTHUSIASTS" AND EVEN "ENGINEERS" ARE FORMER "RICERS" AND THAT WHOLE UNIVERSE IS "BOLT-ON" AND RUN "10S" AND THEY THINK EVERYTHING "GM" AND ESPECIALLY "CHEVY" INTERCHANGES AND "EASILY" AND "CHEAPLY" AND THEREFORE ANY "CHEVY" NOT RUNNING "10S" - WHICH IS 99.99% OF THEM AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN WHEN IT COMES TO REAL "STREET CARS" RUNNING ALL "CHEVY" OR "FACTORY REPLACEMENT" PARTS - MUST BE OWNED BY A "POSEUR" WHO CAN'T/WON'T "COMPETE" WITH ALL THE SUPPOSED "10-SECOND" AND QUICKER AND/OR "800 RWHP" OR MORE "STOCK" BLOCK/CHASSIS/BODY "COYOTE MUSTANGS", THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHATSOEVER THAT "FORD" HAS NEVER "ENGINEERED" SHIT AS FAR AS "POWERTRAIN" COMPONENTS ENTIRELY "IN-HOUSE" IN THE "MODERN ERA" AND EVEN "ICONIC" FORD POWERTRAIN COMPONENTS LIKE "TOP-LOADER" TRANSMISSIONS AND "9-INCH REAR AXLES" WERE NEVER INSTALLED BY THE "FACTORY" IN ANY FORD VEHICLE WITH A "BIG-BLOCK" ENGINE IN A "HEAVY-DUTY" VEHICLE AND THERE WAS NOTHING "NEW" AND/OR "IMPROVED" ABOUT EITHER "PART" BESIDES FORD FIGURED OUT HOW TO MAKE BOTH LIGHT-DUTY "TRUCK" COMPONENTS CHEAP AND LIGHT ENOUGH TO BE "ECONOMICAL" AND "RELIABLE" ENOUGH FOR USE IN "HIGH PERFORMANCE" PASSENGER CARS THAT "FULLY LOADED" WEIGH(ED) AS MUCH OR MORE THAN "EMPTY" LIGHT-DUTY TRUCKS. "CHEVYS" LIKE ALL 3RD AND 4TH GEN CAMAROS RUN DINKY LITTLE 7.5" 10-BOLT REAR AXLES EVEN IN THE "SS" AND Z-28S AND THEY LIVE "BONE STOCK" IN THOSE CARS EVEN WITH AFTERMARKET POWER-ADDERS AND WAY MORE "RWHP" THAN A "COYOTE MUSTANG" WHICH HAS TO HAVE A "FORD 8.8" COPY OF A GM LIGHT-DUTY TRUCK "12-BOLT" (8.75" RING GEAR) JUST TO "LIVE" BEHIND A "COYOTE" AND 6-SPEED MANUAL OR 8-SPEED AUTO? WHY? BECAUSE "MUSTANG GUYS" - INCLUDING "ENGINEERS" AND ESPECIALLY "TUNERS" ARE FREAKING IDIOTS THAT CAN ALWAYS BE COUNTED UPON TO "BUILD" AND/OR "BUY" LESS "HIGH PERFORMANCE" THAN THEY REALLY WANT OR "NEED" AND THEN THROW "GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD" AT THE "AFTERMARKET" WHEN THEY WANT/NEED.TO "COMPETE" WITH THE "CHEVY GUYS" WHO HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED A FORD ANYTHING MUCH LESS A "RESKINNED FALCON" MUSTANG WITH WHATEVER "SMALL-BLOCK" OR "BIG-BLOCK" FORD ENGINE "FAMILY" IN IT TO BE "COMPETITION" AT ALL. AND SINCE THE ONLY "BULLETPROOF" SO-CALLED "FORD" POWERTRAIN COMPONENTS ON/IN FORD "HIGH PERFORMANCE" VEHICLES ARE THOSE THEY COPIED, REVERSE-ENGINEERED, SOURCED OR JOINTLY "DEVELOPED" FROM/WITH REAL FULL-LINE "AUTOMAKERS" OR POWERTRAIN COMPONENT MANUFACTURERS WHO DESIGN, ENGINEER, DEVELOP AND MANUFACTURE ALL THEIR OWN PRODUCTS AND COMPONENTS "IN-HOUSE" AND EVEN THEN FORD TRIES TO GO "CHEAP AND EASY" WITH A "ONE SIZE FITS ALL" REAR AXLE LIKE THE "9-INCH", FORD "SPORTS/PONY/MUSCLE" CARS END UP WITH PICKUP/SUV REAR AXLES, TRANSMISSIONS ETC. IN THEM AND TENS TO HUNDREDS OF POUNDS HEAVIER THAN THEY NEED TO BE WHICH JUST MEANS THEY END UP "NEEDING" THE BIGGER, HEAVIER AND SUPPOSEDLY "STRONGER" PARTS. ALL TO "COMPETE" WITH A GM DIVISION THAT NEVER ONCE IN ITS HISTORY HAS EVER MENTIONED MUCH LESS RESPONDED TO OR OTHERWISE ACKNOWLEDGED FORD MOTOR COMPANY MUCH LESS A SUPPOSED "RIVALRY" AND WHICH HAS NEVER FIELDED A "FACTORY" RACE PROGRAM OR TEAM OF ANY KIND. OR SOLD ITS VEHICLES TO "TUNERS" LIKE SHELBY OR ROUSCH OR ANYONE ELSE AND LET A "THIRD PARTY" SELL ITS VEHICLES UNDER THEIR NAME. FORD WILL LET ANY "TUNER" PUT HIS/HER/THEIR NAME ON "FORD MUSTANGS" MAINLY BECAUSE FORD HAS NEVER "CLAIMED" THE MUSTANG AND PUT "FORD" AND THE "BLUE OVAL" ON ANY MUSTANGS SIMULTANEOUSLY AND MOST NOT AT ALL BECAUSE AN "OUTSIDER" NAMED LEE IACOCCA "DESIGNED" THE MUSTANG AND ON THE "FALCON CHASSIS" WHICH "THE DEUCE" (HENRY FORD II) "DESIGNED" AND "BET" (AND "LOST" SINCE FORD HAD TO "GO PUBLIC" TO STAY IN BUSINESS) THE COMPANY ON AND ALL WHILE TRYING TO "COMPETE" WITH CHEVROLET. "GODZILLA" ITSELF IS THE RESULT OF "COMPETING" WITH "CHEVY" ONCE FORD "SPIES" FOUND OUT "CHEVY" WAS COMING OUT WITH A NEW HEAVY-DUTY GAS-BURNER "COUNTERPART" TO THE DURAMAX DIESEL AND ASSUMED "CHEVY" WOULD HAVE TO "GO BIG-BLOCK OR GO HOME" AFTER THE "LS" MAXXED OUT AT 7 LITERS. FORTUNATELY "CHEVY" IS SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT "HORSEPOWER" IS A CALCULATION RESULTING FROM TORQUE AND ENGINE SPEED WHILE IT TAKES AN ENTIRE.POWERTRAIN.TO PRODUCE "RWHP" AND CHASSIS DYNOS ARE "DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS" AND NOT "TUNING TOOLS" AND ITS ALWAYS TORQUE THAT DOES THE WORK AND ITS TORQUE THAT IS "LOST" TO SLIPPAGE, FRICTION AND HEAT IN A "POWERTRAIN" AND DESIGNING AND ENGINEERING THE WHOLE POWERTRAIN "IN-HOUSE" AND USING "CAPITAL" AND "DATA" FROM THE "COMPETITION" SUCH AS THAT SPENT "PARTNERING" IN SOMETHING LIKE THE "FORD" 10-SPEED TRANSMISSION IS THE ONLY "CHEAP AND EASY" WAY TO BUILD A VEHICLE THAT DOESN'T "COMPETE" WITH THE "COMPETITION" BECAUSE ITS NOT "FORD OWNERS" CHEVY/GM IS TRYING TO SELL VEHICLES TO. ITS EXISTING CHEVY/GM CUSTOMERS WHO COULDN'T CARE LESS ABOUT "GODZILLA" MUCH LESS HAVING A "KING RANCH" FORD PICKUP OR "SHELBY" FORD MUSTANG. FORD IS AND NEVER HAS BEEN HONEST ABOUT JUST HOW LITTLE OF "FORD" VEHICLES IS/WAS REALLY "FORD" AND HAD DONE MORE "COMPETING" WITH ITSELF "REBADGING" FORD SHIT AS "MERCURY" AND/OR "LINCOLN" ALWAYS TRYING TO "COMPETE" WITH GENERAL MOTORS OR EVEN JUST "CHRYSLER". WHICH FORD CAN'T EVEN DO WELL MAINLY BECAUSE FORD INSISTS ON "COMPARING" ITSELF TO AND "COMPETING" WITH "CHRYSLER" RIGHT DOWN TO CALLING A MUSTANG "SUBFRAME" A "K-MEMBER" EVEN THOUGH FORD IS THE ONLY "BIG THREE" SO-CALLED "AUTOMAKER" TO NEVER USE A TORSION-BAR FRONT SUSPENSION WHICH IS THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES A "SUBFRAME" INTO A "K-MEMBER". THE "LEGS" WHICH EXTEND BACK FROM THE CROSSMEMBER TO FORM THE TORSION BAR "POCKETS". BUT THEN AGAIN FORD MUSTANGS - ALL OF THEM - ALSO HAVE "SHOCK TOWERS" BIG ENOUGH FOR COIL SPRINGS OR MCPHERSON STRUTS AND "BUGGY SPRINGS" FOR THE FRONT "SUSPENSION" SO ITS NO WONDER FORD "ENGINEERS" ARE/WERE DESPERATE TO ASSOCIATE THE "FOX BODY" AND ALL OTHER MUSTANG "PLATFORMS" WITH "MODERN" VEHICLES LIKE LATE-50S AND UP MOPAR PASSENGER CARS AND EARLY-80S AND UP "CHEVY" IFS 4WD LIGHT-DUTY TRUCKS.
You’ve been holing that in awhile, I bet you feel better. I still play with the World beater FE, know real knuckle dragged, but I’ve run a 428 with Ford parts in one of those Falcons and it was fun in C/SA. I did a little 390 .20 over that synod at 530 ft lbs and 610 hp and has happily done so in a 65 Galaxie for 20 yrs without a tear down. Still spins to 7200 clean as a whistle. That’s the only engine family I’d fool with swpapping into anything. This modern junk is just that. Who won the vintage class at 2019 EMC against the iconic BBC straight up, A Chevy fanboy. The LS is a fair copy of an FE.
You feel better? The Ford FE is the only engine I build 550 ft lbs 610 hp from 394 ci it’s lasted 20 years without a fuss. The LS is a fair copy of the FE.
To be clear, Ford does NOT finance me. Far from it. They're aloof, and non-responsive generally. They don't like a lot of the stuff I run. But it's not my job to appease them, only to report on news and offer my opinion on it. Thanks for the comment.
You DO realize that between your inappropriate and constant use of quotation marks combined with hitting the Caps Lock key somewhere in the beginning your entire comment is almost completely unreadable? After my eyes started swimming I asked 2 other people to try; none got through it. You seemed to be ranting but that might have been the Caps Lock.
Hi, thank you for such a brilliant post. I have been reading some blogs that gives me more knowledge about ford performance makes 73 lite . I must say this is one of the best among them. You have done a great research for I feel, thanks for sharing.
