Megazilla V-8 engine

Ford Performance has made the Megazilla crate engine, first unveiled a year ago, available for purchase. This naturally aspirated V-8 engine, priced at $22,995, is listed at Ford Performance.

The company cautions that this engine is designed primarily for competitive use or for vehicles not operated on public roads, as it may not comply with emissions standards.

This engine enhances the Godzilla 7.3-liter V-8, initially introduced in the 2020 Super Duty pickup. It’s also available in crate form like its predecessor.

The Megazilla retains the Godzilla’s 7.3-liter capacity, 10.5:1 compression ratio, and cast-iron block, but it generates 615 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 638 lb-ft of torque at 3,800 rpm, surpassing the Godzilla’s 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 475 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

Details on the Ford Megazilla Crate Engine

The Megazilla surpasses the Godzilla with several enhancements, including Mahle forged pistons, Callies forged H-beam connecting rods, and CNC-ported cylinder heads. It also incorporates a low-profile intake manifold and the 92-mm throttle body from the former Mustang Shelby GT500.

The crate package includes additional items like coils, spark plug wires, spark plugs, an oil pan, a wiring harness, and a storage cradle.

While Ford hasn’t disclosed the Megazilla’s weight, it’s expected to be similar to the Godzilla’s 580 pounds, given their shared cast-iron block construction.

Ford has not specified compatible vehicle models for the Megazilla, but the Godzilla fits into the Super Duty, the F-150, and the Mustang. Both engines share the same bellhousing bolt pattern as Ford’s current 5.0-liter V-8 and the previous 4.6- and 5.4-liter V-8 engines.

Is it just me or is 22k a bit steep for an engine, even if it is high performance? I mean, it’s almost like buying a new car.

interesting to see the tech upgrades in the Megazilla, CNC-ported heads and that 92-mm throttle body from the GT500, that’s some serious engineering work there.

The nostalgia! Reminds me of the old muscle car days, but I wonder how it compares to those classics in terms of raw performance?

Not sure how I feel about engines that aren’t eco-friendly, especially with all the emissions issues nowadays. Ford should focus more on sustainability.
