yes I have had many diesel guys tell me that the emissions thing killed the diesel. I always just tell them how do you think I feel gas motors got it back in the early 70's LOL

… and just in case you haven't seen it yet but pushrods are back. 7.3 gasser is a small block, big cube, pushrod v-8. I saw the video a few times now and it looks like they have increased pushrod size to give it more durability. Brian has been a pushrod guy for a long time, he says some interesting things but you have to listen close. Only time will tell.
Yep, time will tell how the 7.3 holds up, it has every chance to be a winner. Big inch low power, low rpm, low stress, few components... I do think some DOHC heads with TI-VCT and direct injection on the 6.2 would have made more power and better economy... but it would have been way more expensive to make. The 7.3 I have a feeling was largely designed to out the 6.8 in the RV industry, and because they need lots of sales to make up for the R&D, they offered it in the superduty... Speaking of... a v10 with the coyote bore and ti-vct style direct injection top end, I would have been happy with that too... :D

I don't know what it was about the windsors, but they all ran like garbage after 100-200k... I have 2 200k+ 4.6s and they both run great.

Just a little random thing just happened... filling up with gas at Costco next to a brand new JL wrangler, guy driving was wearing a Bronco R shirt and so I asked him what he’d heard about the new Bronco and if he was getting one? he looked at me Super weird and said no, he hasn’t followed it because he’s a mopar guy lol.

we chatted about our jeeps for a minute and I went on my way. Super weird lol.

That's exactly what I'd expect a guy with inside knowledge to say. Veryyyy suspicious

That’s kinda what I was thinking. I know the shop that built the Bronco R is out here in Phoenix maybe one of their employees?

So there’s a guy on the Bronco 2020 Facebook who comments fairly often and is apparently an engineer at Ford who has seen the Bronco. His comment is this: “It is not going to be that radical looking, it will look more like the early Bronco’s than this”

take that as you will
Than what my man?
