Earlier this week, Ford announced their new 7.3 Liter GODZILLA V8 engine for the 2020 Super duty pickup truck. We recently learned that this engine will have the potential to fit in both the Mustang and the F150. This begs the question, will there be a New V8 Ford Raptor and a reborn Mustang Boss 429? Today we discuss.

      Does it make sense for Ford to make a Boss 429, even if it won’t be the fastest, most powerful, or best handling model in the lineup?

      +CJ Colvin Lets see now Fords Legendary 302 Boss Cleveland , 351 Boss Cleveland, 351 Windsor and the 429 Boss Shotgun(aluminum heads) were all push rod cast iron and all in Mustangs and Torinos from 1968 unto 1995.. and still utilized in all sorts of motorsports events to this day.. none of the Boss push rod series where ever in any truck of any type unless it was swapped.. SO? tell me more about this push rod big block LOL!

      Would it make sense? Is that even a real question? OF COURSE IT WOULD! I had a 78 F-150 that I put a 429 4V in out of a 71 Mercury Colony Park station wagon. I had to buy a kit to make it go in: mounts, linkage, blah, blah, blah but that was the scariest, bad-assest, most satisfying thing I've ever driven. Going up against that thing you KNEW right quick you were out gunned. It had a spread bore carburator so if you floored it you could watch the gas gauge go down but the yank back in the seat and the sound of that big blue monster under the hood was worth every dime I spent on gas. It had so much power at 80 you could hit the gas and almost pull the wheel out if your hand...and that was in a pick up! These days with improved performance and gas mileage I would hock my left one for one of those in a Mustang

      If Ford continues to go the ecoboob direction with Mopar's big block monster machines(7.0L 1000 HP Hellephant) Challengers and Chargers will eventually eclipse the Mustang market? to bring a 5.0L Coyote to a 1000 hp is highly complex/risky or you will grenade it( i know a thing or 2 because ive seen a thing or 2)? I say if 7.3L ever brought to the Mustang market only as a option on a aluminum platform heads and block(weight ratio purposes)... with larger CID's lends to more headroom.. power adder packages etc etc.. well beyond the Mopey/Chebby wildest dreams. could knock 1500hp off the showroom floor.. FORD could dub this badass the BOSS PYTHON!

      +Ford Living Legends Torinos...I Don't know about Ford having a Big Block Old School Push Rod Engine in a late Model Mustang!

      But I do know of a Guy who put a 427ci. Push Rod engine into a S197 Platform Mustang!...It also depends on the State you live in and there Engine Swapping Rules and Regulations!...I am Just Saying!

      Now I recently talked to Ford Performance and was told that they are coming out with a Stand Alone Kit to Operate the New 10R80 10sp Auto Trans and attach it to a Old School Ford Push Rod engines as well as the Newer Mod Ford engines!...So I Hope that's some Good News for You!

      In California because of our Strict Rules and Regulations concerning Engine Swaps, putting a Old School Push Rod engine into a Newer Ford Mustang is Not going to Happen!...I am Just Saying!...God Bless!

      The only way this engine will ever see life under the hood of a Mustang will either be because some aftermarket tuning shop swaps one in just to say they did it, OR Ford will make a dedicated performance version of this engine similar to how Dodge did with their 8.0L V-10 a couple of decades ago, honestly I think the former is much more likely though, Ford seems really wrapped up in using their Ecoboost engines for anything race related, and for those that refused to accept a smaller displacement turbo engine, they already have the Coyote to fill that void. I'm not trying to be a pessimist, just realistic. I hope I'm wrong though, an all aluminum de- stroked to 429ci version of this engine in a Mustang would be sooooo cool! But I have serious doubt's that'll ever happen.

      Never going to happen. Ford is going to go electric as a second option. The coyote can hold 1000 hp with a power adder and be reliable. That large iron block would make the car handle like crap.

      I would love to see Ford make a few changes to this 7.3 and maybe do a flat-plane crank in this thing so you get some super high revs possibly do forced induction maybe twin turbo or turbo and supercharged together maybe play around with those ideas see what kind of power they can get and then stick that in a mustang

      My opinion,it's not that ford couldn't make a street legal mustang that could compete with a dodge Hellcat. And by that I mean straight line performance. But they'll never do that. And forget about the Demon.

      I was fortunate enough to own a 1970 Boss429, actually number 377, but this was back in 1982 and I dang well knew that I should have kept that beast. Grabber blue w black interior, but my girlfriend at the time thought that I should have a newer car. I actually garaged the Boss, less taking it about a mile down the road every weekend, so I drove a beat up light blue 73 fastback all around town. She talked me into selling the Boss and the Beat up fastback and buying an 83 5.0 Mustang GT. Great little car w awesome torque, but the girl didn't last and I regretted selling the Boss from day 1. For those of you who don't know, a few simple modifications and the Boss429 was as bad as any classic muscle car ever produced. Yes, I am including a true Hemi, a 71 Buick GSX Stage1, Pontiac GTO Ram air 4, Olds 442 W-30, 1973 Pontiac Trans Am 455SD(w-out emmisions) and anything Chevy brought to the table. I am sure that I will hear alot of negative feedback, but that is simply because of brand loyalty. I respect all true classic muscle cars, but that Boss was extremely rare and a true sleeper. True classic muscle cars rule, but dang they are sure coming out w some beasts these days...

      This is never going to happen....way to heavy for one thing. Ford makes much lighter engines that can make way more horsepower & torque, so it just doesn't make sense all around. I say it is a no go....but stranger things have happened in the Ford Universe.....lol

      I would love a Boss 9 to come back. But to put an underpowered engine in it just to cram a large displacement motor under the hood isn't the idea. It needs its own power plant if you're going to bring back that historical monster.

      Gotta ask yourself one question.. Mopar's got the new 7.0 Hellephant @1000 HP that will work in their late model Chargers and Challengers and is designed to retrofit(plug n play) the classic versions.. What the HELL is wrong with FORD doing the same??? about time FORD came back with the Big Block Push Rod configuration the original BADASS! Rumors have it..it could accommodate the 2020 Gran Torino?

      +Nathan McDonald maybe I should have said electric/ gas hybrid first before complete electric. Which is what I meant initially anyways.
      Either way, it sucks!

      And yes, the technology and structure is already available, it's just the timing they use to launch, and I see Ford going down that road in near future unfortunately. Just a matter of timing.

      Enjoy the current days while they last.

      It'll likely be decades before Ford or any other established manufacture can fully switch to Electric. The infrastructure is not there nor is the technology for certain applications. Until the day comes where they can full switch to electric and still turn a profit they will continue to produce gas and diesel engines.

      Ford just needs to go to an aluminum block with that size motor then put whipple super charger on top then they've got something that is lighter and faster and something to brag and talk about. There's no replacement for displacement. Yeah baby!!!

      Lots of children on this feed with cartoon ideas...smh...I have one word for you IF FORD WANTED TO MAKE A 429... ALUMINATOR...that motor could easily attain the 429 cubic inch with less weight. But FORD hasn't done it ...why... it's not the future. Spending money on one niche car when they already have a Halo car the GT500 is just wasteful

      You seem to be thinking only of the numbers 4.2.9.....Why would Ford spend millions in r&d for the S550 platform,as a handler, just to add big weight in the nose?. Your theory would ruin the legacy of a Boss 429 and believe me no purist would buy a Boss 429 car that could be outrun buy a Ecoboost.

      Rick...you might think that there's no reason to go back...Hot rodding, was an attempt to make what the factory made bigger stronger fsster BADDER. The factory took note of what was going on in backyards, and service stations in the wee hours in the morning. Then there wete factory tuning shops like Grand Spaulding and Royal Pontiac, Yenko, and Motion to name a few. The factory then had to give the people what they wanted.In effect the Factory Race teams took what Uncle Jimmy's gas station did
      There's a resurgence in factory Muscle. There's only spme many ways to make a blower/ turbo car go fast..
      A BIG BLOCK FORD MUSTANG IS THE NEXT THING( No turbos, no Coyote's...) T O R Q U E.

      I think it would be a badass done right. Lets quit farting around, rework it as a power house and supercharge it, ford kept teasing us with this last mustang and ended up giving us a mustang that wont take a demon and almost 200hp down look i have always liked a driven fords and i know they can build engines. So quit f'n around build massive power/chassis and leave chevy, dodge and any other contender in the losers lane

      This kinda makes no sense. The fact that they call it a boss 429, but its a 444 cubic inch engine. So you should call it the boss 444. Just an idea...
