YouTuber Revan Evan and ex-Ford Performance boss Brian Wolfe have been dissecting the 7.3-liter in a full-fledged video series, taking key measurements and dyno testing the big-boy V-8 in both stock and modified form. In doing so, they've also stacked the new power plant against other Ford engines, albeit from different time periods, such as the modern 5.0-liter Coyote and 351 Windsor from years past. While this might seem like a strange comparison given the 7.3-liter's size and application, it's really not so far fetched.
A few weeks ago, Evan and Wolfe proved the 7.3-liter can be shoehorned into a Fox-Body Mustang without issue. What's more, in another breakdown, they show that it's a whole 4.5-inches narrower than a Coyote. This means the pushrod lump not only has the benefit of modern engine construction, but it's also compact enough to stick in project cars and trucks of all sorts.
