      DOHC would make this engine entirely to big. I'm sure they used the pushrod design in order to maintain flexibility of use in different applications. For me, you cant beat a pushrod engine. Tried and true with way fewer parts moving.

      I used to own a 1971 LTD that was an old Highway Patrol vehicle for Texas. It had a 429 in it, and it was a monster all by itself. I would love to see a modern Mustang with a 429 in it weather its a Boss or not, Semi-hemi with a dual overhead cam would be beautiful....I currently own a Roush RS 2015 Mustang and love it.....my wife bought it for my birthday that year....so it's quite special to me.

      This new 7.3L engine, as of now, will be available only with an iron block. The variable cam hardware is on the front of the engine, and with the wider bore spacing, this makes this new motor VERY LONG. It is my understanding that this new motor will be way too long to fit into ANY Mustang's engine bay. And unless Ford creates an aluminum block for it (which could happen but I'm not holding my breath), it will also be extremely heavy. This is fine for a 3/4 or 1-ton truck, but for a Mustang, not so fine.... On top of this, there will be essentially no Ford or aftermarket go-fast goodies available for years.
      I built a 429 CID (4.132" bore x 4" stroke) aluminum 4-bolt 351 stroker for my '95 Cobra R. This engine is based on Ford's Z351 block and weighs less than a cast iron 289, yet it has massive big block power with no power adders. There are, essentially, an unlimited assortment of high performance goodies for the 351W. Because my car was built primarily for road course use, reducing the weight of the front of the car was a high priority. My car now has a F/R weight distribution that is closer to 50/50. Some weight was added to the rear of the car with the Griggs World Challenge rear suspension. The Griggs tubular chrome-moly K member also reduced a lot of weight from the front of the car. The result is an extremely fast car that has perfectly balanced cornering, adjustable ride height, adjustable roll center and almost no nose dive during braking thanks to the Griggs World Challenge Torque Arm.
      Even if someone does manage to shoe horn this new 7.3L into a Mustang, it would only be useful as a drag car and really nothing else. With the ability to build aluminum 351 strokers up to 460 cubic inches, using this engine in a Mustang would be an exercise in futility... I seriously doubt Ford would ever do it.

      I think whatever Ford has up their sleeve will be available through their SVO division and will probably be a crate engine for aftermarket applications. I'd like to see it with twin turbos! The guys at American Muscle probably have some inside info!

      Huey A, Reed....... From what i know variant of the 7.3 will show up in the raptor at some point... This engine is capable of so much more power then what we see in the truck version... Chevy has cornered the pushrod market.
      Not anymore. I am also told There is a possible CJ mustang on the way with
      another version of this engine making big power.... Many people think this video implies that the 7.3 will replace the coyote and the voodoo. no it will not. But Specialty vehicles with different versions of the 7.3 is being explored by ford.

      I don't ever see this 7.3 ever being put in a production Mustang. With the 5.0 making almost 500 hp NA, and the Supercharged 5.2 making over 700, there is no reason to go with more displacement.

      With gas prices lower than diesel prices, this new 7.3 will be the perfect engine for their commercial/fleet truck chassis.

      @ Ricky Rick...that's exactly the Reason why the BIG BLOCK should be put in the MUSTANG..More cubic inches,more TORQUE, (More ft/lbs.) and MORE HORSEPOWER built under the Curve.It will RULE SUPER STOCK(NHRA FACTORY STOCK/ SUPER STOCK) Then GM/ and DODGE will have to run with the Clydesdales or stay on the Porch...( elephants and Rats, that means You.)

      Let's see, LESS then 600hp, LESS than 600lb/ft torque. It's a gas engine. What the HELL is ford doing? The diesel Will out pull this motor! Put it in a mustang? Why? The extra weight upfront won't let it handle turns, and the 5.0 Will licks it ass in performance! What a WASTE of time, Money and research for an engine that won't out perform even the twin-turbo V6!

      There is no benefit to this engine in a car.....unless it had solid rear axle, and a big tow hitch.

      A mustang should be like the cars that often beat them. BMW, Audi, etc (Volkswagon Automotive Group) and Japanese autos....a pushrod now belongs in a Uhaul or box truck, and possibly some military applications where moving 12 to 30 thousand pounds regularly is needed and where diesel may not make the most sense.

      Just do the math pro's, vrs cons. If it was an all aluminum, modular, steel sleeved, modern Big block, then that would be, game on for GODZILLA 500KR. But pushrod old technology IRON VERY HEAVY BIG BLOCK dosen't work this day and age for a muscle car. IT MUST BE A CGI, OR ALUMINUM BLOCK. I have a VERY HEAVY IRON BIG BLOCK IN MY SVT RAPTOR. WEIGHT DOSEN'T HELP FOR SPEED, ACCELERATION, CORNERS NOR LANDING. This is why I'm sure.

      Its a heavy cast iron block, with a allison trans combo in the new trucks. I also hear it may come in the new Mustangs too. I wish Ford, or Chevy would build something to beat the Demon. You guys probably already know, but these Direct Injection engines can be a pain in the ass , unless you learn how to maintain them. In my opinion, they`re more trouble than their worth. Ford needs to make this new Big Block, Port Injection, instead of Direct Injection

      This is 445 cubic inch engine. In block cam with roller rockers. 6 bolt mains 4 vert 2 horz. Only available in the F-250 and up. NOT MUSTANG OR EXPLORER! The HP and Torque has NOT been released as of 02/28/2019. The 10 speed automatic transmission was built just for this engine nothing else. NO THIS IS NOT A DUAL OVERHEAD CAM ENGINE! Please go to the search button here on youtube and search new 7.3 ford gas engine you will find the Ford spokesman telling you about this engine and showing you a cut away version of the engine. If I remember correctly this is NOT a direct injection system either. But I might be wrong on that. Do the search because this guy is clueless!

      The problem with the new coyotes are the brittle valves, soft valve guides, thin retainers and for some odd reason when people dont beat the shit out of them and decide to granny the hell out of it, the pistons keyhole and Ford buys the car back and you fight your ass off to get out of the loan that Ford never actually pays back
