Ford’s Preparing A Twin-Turbocharged 7.3-litre Godzilla V8

Ford's Godzilla, like its namesake, is powerful. With two turbos, nothing can stop it


  • Godzilla is found in Ford’s Super Duty pickups.

  • It is unclear whether or not it will be put into production.


Ford’s 7.3-litre pushrod V8 is very popular with Super Duty pickup buyers. Its relatively simple yet robust design makes it a perfect workhorse. It also happens to be extremely powerful even in its most de-tuned versions. It appears as though Ford’s exploring Godzilla’s full potential by giving it a double boost.

Godzilla’s lowest output is set at 300 horsepower and 425 lb.-ft. of torque. In the average Super Duty, the F-250 and F-350, for example, the big V8 drops a substantial 430 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. According to Ford Authority, the twin-turbocharged 7.3-litre is a verifiable “monster.”

Rumours about Godzilla say that its actual output might be greater than advertised by Ford. In fact, nearly 800 horsepower has been squeezed out of a naturally aspirated V8. With a supercharged, 1,600 horsepower is a real possibility. As to how much power an “EcoBoosted” Godzilla makes is unknown but it must be impressive.

Based on the report, Ford has apparently fitted the turbocharged engine in at least two Super Duty pickups. For the moment, it is not known if this version of Godzilla will see production. We hope so.
