Man!! I'd poop my pants if Ford did this!

All I know is I will be putting this into my Gen 1 Lightning backed by my TKO 600.

Probably weighs less than the super common swap into EB's, 351w's that had cast iron heads/intake/exh manifolds
and all cast or stamped steel access brackets/pulleys.

And yes, one of those will be going in possibly upwards of 3 of my cars/trucks.

Yup. Says it weighs just about the same as my 351 Windsor in the Gen 1.

I mean....it fits in a fox body. Should easily fit in the new Bronco!
More you'll see them discuss why it should be, so there'll be some fireworks

I'm certain it'd work, but I'm not an expert

Where did you find the weight? Been looking for that and external dimensions.

I think I'm in love ……..... I always dreamed of a big block in my fox body. The Procharged small block just doesn't seem to cut it anymore. After I buy my Bronco of course.

The Godzilla engine was designed to pass emissions and be reliable at low rpm with long oil change intervals. It can make big numbers, but you'd probably be better off with a coyote or hurricane variant if you want power. However, with enough money, you can do anything, right?

Thats what I tell my wife. I can do just about anything with enough time and money.

First try on doing anything to it and they are @ 588HP.
And much smaller than we all originally thought.
