    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    1972 was when engines also took a big emissions hit. Compression ratios dropped down to approx 8.5:1, cam profiles and timing were changed to be more emissions friendly. It was the final nail in the performance coffin for Detroit, until EFI came along.

    Corsair Engine Info

    Hmmmm . . . . No mention of a P&W R2800 option?
  4. Gears turning here - I wonder if Ford has designed this block with DOHC 4V in future plans - Just looking at what Mercury Marine Racing achieved with the LS7. NA 750 HP & 570 lb/ft from 7 Litres.
  5. My guess it hat this engine will squeeze between the shock towers of a 67 and later Mustang.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    Heads look good. - Heart shaped chambers - Generous valve diameters. - Interesting deviation from the old FE in that the head incorporates a portion of the intake as opposed to the extended intake on the FE.

    Closer to the second coming of the FE. Which, by the way, was also a truck engine in FT form. Bore spacing of the 7.3 is 4.60" and the FE/FT was 4.63". Possibility that the aftermarket can support this engine without all new tooling! Huge potential for performance!

    Interesting: New 7.3L Bore: 4.22" X Stroke 3.96" 427FE Bore: 4.23" X Stroke: 3.78" Then there's this - 428FE Stroke 3.98" Common hot-rodder build was to put a 428 crank in a 427, resulting in: Bore 4.23" X Stroke 3.98" - 445CID

    So Cars Don't Sell?

    Maybe just wishful thinking - With the elimination of Focus, Fusion, Taurus and retention of the Mustang, isn't there a much greater chance of Ford exploiting the Mustang platform? Maybe offering a Ford sedan to the line up as well as one or two Lincolns (stretched wb) all based on the Mustang platform?

    2019 Raptor to get 7.0 V8

    Doesn't the ECM monitor EGT and back off boost and throttle when over temp occurs?
