Ford’s popular 7.3L Godzilla V8 engine will be available with Autogas option
Roush CleanTech has started production of an Autogas fuel system for Ford’s new 7.3L Godzilla V8 engine, which has proven to be a popular choice among Ford Super Duty buyers. The company’s Autogas technology integrates Ford’s engine in a variety of Class 3-7 chassis.
“We continue a 10-year journey of investing in new technology development with our Gen 5 Autogas system,” said Todd Mouw, president of ROUSH CleanTech. “Our engineers have been working extensively to ensure that our fuel system marries seamlessly with the new Ford engine to give our fleet customers the best product on the market.”
Ford’s new 7.3L engine is compact, durable and easy to maintain. It is narrower than the previous 6.8L, allowing it to fit into multiple vehicle chassis and be serviced with similar automotive parts across each chassis. In addition, innovations for the Gen 5 LPG fuel system include stronger and lighter forged fuel rails and a support bracket that keeps the engine fuel distribution well organised.
The LPG-powered engine is designed to meet current and future emissions requirements as well. Roush CleanTech’s Gen 5 is certified to California Air Resources Board’s optional low NOx emissions standard of 0.05 grams per brake horsepower-hour (g/bhp-hr). The Gen 5 system also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps optimise fuel efficiency, and it can operate on bioLPG, which further reduces emissions and carbon intensity values.
Roush CleanTech is a Tier 1 supplier and Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier manufacturer, which means that all of its Autogas vehicles retain all of the expected Ford performance characteristics, such as horsepower, torque, and towing, while also maintaining the OEM factory warranty.
