    Default Will Godzilla replace the raptor?

    Will be interesting if this 7.3l makes it into a wakeboat.

    Personally prefer a “cam in block” vs Overhead cam.

    Like the 6.2, but this could be the next Ford boat engine.

    Ya definitely interesting that they went back to a push rod!!

    Also interesting that they are going to carry the 6.2 over as well. I wonder how long they will offer both...

    interesting. I would bet the larger block will be short lived in trucks and switch to the rv industry like the old v10 ford had.

    I’d rather see a 4cyl Cummins Turbo Diesel!

    It will be used in super duty but also the larger medium duty trucks.

    Iron block pushrod engine makes perfect sense in a wake boat.

    Yep, who knew a pushrod V8 would make more power and be more reliable?!? Lol
    If Indmar gets ahold of the new 7.3L and it becomes an option in the new SA, I’m gonna be first in line...

    Great...... Just when I'm trying to get a new boat built. My luck I'll get a 2019 and then for 2020 they put in the Godzilla engine

    I would doubt Indmar would be moving that quick on a new motor when the 6.2 is still being produced.

    I assume companies like this get the ‘heads up’ when Ford plans on sun setting, so they can get enough testing and r&d completed.

    I could be wrong . . .

    I’m not a Ford guy, but I thought that 6.2 was released in the Raptor pickup 8-10 years ago?

    SC started using them in 2015. So this would be the 5th year. That is not too long.

    Cool read and the future sounds interesting!

    Mustangs have what 3 cat converters on each side for emissions on a 5.0 I’m curious to see how they’re going to keep emissions in check with this beast. It’ll look like a diesel dpf system under the truck lol
