Man, and I thought a few 383s I looked at earlier with over 400 hp and torque were nice! Dang that kind of power would be so nice! Man I need to save my cash and get some power upgrades done!Search on YouTube for some 7.3 videos. There are people who have made 750hp and more, much more with boost and better valvetrain parts.
The best part of the 7.3 is that it's a modern design, it has variable valve timing, VVT. So the power curve is huge and flat. It is still a new engine, so long term lifespan is a little unknown. It can be bored to gain a good 25ci, and stroked to get 30ci or more, so imagine a 480 with VVT.
Really hope someone here genuinely has the cash and time to try and 7.3 swap an X, that would be crazy! Especially with a few mods fone.
