I am writing about my story of the Ford 7.3L Godzilla engine and how I became involved in the project, along with other people, and companies I have worked with. With that, some of the successes and failures along the way. This leads into building a car called “Foxzilla” we built to test these engines in a real-world environment. I am not endorsing any companies and am trying to be as unbiased as possible, talking about facts with real data and real-life experience.
