    I think it’s going to require a lot more than just “dropping it in! “ Lol.

    7.3liters and 430hp/475tq is the best they could do?

    Not bad for a bone stock truck engine if you ask me.

    They make an easy 600+ HP with a non-truck cam, intake and headers....N/A.

    I heard they are also coming out with a 6.8 liter, and possible option for a mustang.

    I really wish they'd offer the Voodoo engine since the GT350 is getting discontinued. Would be the most distinct sounding Marauder ever if you put one of those in it.

    What might have to happen if one wanted to install the predator in a Marauder ?
    What is the cost ?

    I already asked Marty and he said, "NO". But, maybe for someone else.

    What was his reasoning for not wanting to do a Preditor installation ?

    I love that new pushrod engine. Ford finally realize the LS was dominating the aftermarket cause the Coyotes and their OHC offerings were too hard to use in older cars. Would love to do that Godzilla in my early Fastback Mustang. Maybe if my Windsor ever finally gives up, but in stock form that motor is a little down grade on power, but it's so upgradable it would easily turn into an upgrade.
