I'd like to see the new Godzilla 7.3 with a huffer bolted to it!!!
430hp 475 ftlbs

kinda disappointed, that is a only 18lb-ft more than the current archaic 3v triton v10 and only 11lb-ft more than the new GM 6.6L.
But im sure its heavily detuned for a high service life in heavy applications. Give and take i guess..
A totally irrelevant comparison on how badass the old Ram 8.0L V10 was. 450 lbs of twist at only 2400 rpm. About 7 mpg though....ouch
Way lower than i expected in tq. I was hoping for a min of 525tq
The other issue is that the 475tq is all the way at 4000rpm. But it at least it makes 400tq at 1500rpm.
I'm sure this thing is detuned, they just needed to make more power then the competition for now. It will get turned up over time as pressure increases from the compitition and as a incentive to upgrade in the future. I bet it's 450hp 500+tq within a few yrs. It will be fun to see what kind of gains a 5 star tune will give it.
The chassis cab and f550/600/650/750 gets the detuned 350hp/468lb/ft of torque. By comparison the 6.7 powerstroke in the chassis cab(2019) is rated at 330hp/750lb/ft torque. Just an fyi.
Nick-name change needed from Godzilla to Komodo or Iguana...
Let's see how it pulls vs the GM 6.6 on the Ike. Then I'll decide.
I can understand the reasoning behind keeping the power rating low. This is going to be an extremely high-mileage capable, high reliability power rating.
Looks like as an overall package, they are going to use the gear ratios in the 10-speed transmission to get the pulling power needed rather than rely on brute engine power alone.
Id say there is an easy 150/150 left in this as shipped from the factory. Probably a VERY conservative tune.
Sid, are any of the super duty 10r parts fit in the the mustang/f150 10r? That video shows a huge planetary gear vs f150. Is the case dimension the same?
It would be fantastic to get one from a junk yard for people wanting to upgrade.
also on the power, they probably detuned it, so they can up the power over the next years of life span....
Well they could also add in the future Dual injection. Make and easy 60hp 100tq
i like how the engineering manager admitted that they were basically wrong all this time about smaller engines being more efficient. LOL
Ford sang that sung for over 20yrs and now are basically admitting that GM and Dodge philosophy of larger, simpler 2v ohv engines was the correct one. Thats some major crow.
no way in hell does it have 150hp in it just by tuning. Unless you're referring to an all out NA build with ported heads, higher compression, performance manifold, long tubes and a lumpy cam.
I was waiting for him to thank those two lol.
Well in the heavy duty trucks that aren't as effective by the mpg rules they should have made this motor a while ago.
did all those trucks just die and rust to nothing in salvage yards or something? I can't remember the last time seeing a magnum v10 ram on the road. I see big block vortec chevys and v10 fords almost daily.
Meh. Hoping this one sees some aftermarket love or it'll be another 6.2L
