Yes. The Godzilla is a wonderful current-day "throwback" engine. Thank God for Ford.And the paper numbers are one thing, but its more the fact that my Ecoboost maintains those numbers right up to 7000', and I have data logged this to confirm, while a V8 is down 20% on power and torque. I've also data logged the 4.6L in my Lexus GX and it is almost perfectly down 20%. The GM 6.2L is the only V8 I would have considered simply because its rating is so high at 420 hp that it would make mid 300's here. Unfortunately, in 2014, GM was so stingy with the 6.2L that finding one with the max tow package and a crew cab long bed would have been nearly impossible.
Back in 2014, even the HD pickups were anemic compared to the Ecoboost. The new gas 7.3L Godzilla is the first engine in an HD that I would consider and may in the future.
