Big Block Raptor

Cool old school motor and lots of power potential for sure. But it would add a lot more weight to the front of the Mustang and or Raptor.

It's my understanding that the new 7.3L gas engine is for those truck owners they want to have diesel towing power without the upfront costs (and associated reliability troubles) of a diesel engine. They aren't cheap and the fuel economy difference isn't near what it once was. Emissions standards are very difficult for diesels now, the easy days of the original Powerstroke are long gone.
