Talking Ford's new 7.3L iron block ohv

After yrs & yrs of ohc v/8's, Ford is going back to a iron block ohv motor. Going in the SD's & the '20 Raptor & a good possibility in the Mustang as it wouldn't have the wide ohc heads, so it'd fit in a Mustang engine bay. No known data as torque/HP same as none as of right now for the new GT500 engine either. About time Ford went back to a bulletproof setup vs the ohc's & dealing w/ the chains, tensioners, guilds & vct issues. I can see swaps & a couple of FRRP combos later on. No known spec's as of right now, just speculation. I'd like to see how much hp this motor will take on the stock bottom end, hopefully the Ford engineers are smart enough to build it pretty stout for twin turbos or blown, unlike the 6.7 'stroke that needs rods/pistons over a 50-75hp tune. We'll all have to wait & see...
