    Ive been searching the web with no luck, trying to find the total length of the new 7.3 Godzilla engine, transmission & T-case. Anybody no where to find such a number?
    I have this desire to install one into my Bronco. My current EFI 460 is great, but, something about this new engine has me fired up. 10 speed transmission and all. I suspect the block won’t be any longer that my 460 but the transmission is likely longer than my C-6 and NV271 I’m running now. My rear drive shaft is really short now, not sure I can go much less. I’ve been looking around salvage yards, not many out there yet.

    Before this virus stuff hit, I was thinking of a new pickup, but now I am waiting, but anyway, I have always had a theory about engines, there is no substitute for cubic inches, no pun intended.
