Time for a brand new pushrod Monster…

Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8

IRL:
430 HP at 5500 rpm
475 ft-lbs at 4000 rpm
4.22 inch Bore
3.976 inch Stroke
445ci / 7.3L
Iron Block with Aluminum (alloy) Heads.
10.5:1 Compression Ratio
Variable Cam Tech.
Multi Port EFI

Automation Differences:
430hp at 5800rpm
486lb-ft at 3500rpm
10.8 to 1 Compression
95 RON Gasoline
3 inch dual exhaust with catalytic converters, straight and reverse mufflers.
(the 430hp irl rating is SAE NET with all accessories and full exhaust.)
Only a 45 for cam profile with VVT.
Heavy Duty Forged Short Block. (pistons, crank, rods)

Just a disclaimer: automation is not a true simulation, so this replica engine built as close as I could get it to the IRL counterpart with some slight discrepancies to better suit Automation.

(Here’s the transfer truck which contains the engine.)
