The new f250-350 7.3 L gas engine looks like it could be a really nice airboat engine

As far as the physical size, yes, but would like to see real world hp/tq numbers 1st. Also, the demand for a gear/belt box would have to be there before the manufacturers would support it, before it could become a viable option on an airboat.

I remember in the late 90s Ford saying pushrod motor days are over n GM built the LS motor to prove wrong I see Ford is going back to pushrod motor that's where the power is
