Ford 7.3 V8 'Godzilla' Crate Engine Control Pack

OBR has put together an engine control pack for Ford's 7.3 V8 'Godzilla' engine.  Our aim is to supply our customers with a well engineered and easy to install kit, offering very good drive-ability straight out of the box.
This kit includes our new OBR E8G controller, a bespoke OBR engine wiring harness (build using aircraft style high quality wire) and a manifold air pressure and temperature sensor.
All standard sensors, actuators and drive-by-wire throttle body are used, no exchange of parts is required.
Updating the ECU and the tune for use with for example a performance camshaft, a supercharger or turbo is quite straight forward calibration wise. 
Several of our dealers are already offering various performance updates.

Swapping this engine into your classic Ford  and worried about drive ability?  No need to worry at all, the control package can be extended to include 4 wheel speed sensors to add traction control....

What the base kit includes....

Our kit for the 7.3 V8 'Godzilla' engine is based on our E8G ECU.  This controller is specially configured to control ALL standard features on the Ford engine, you do NOT have to change or modify any sensor or actuator on the engine.

Our base crate engine kit includes these parts:
- OBR E8G stand alone engine controller - ONE single module to control your engine!
- New OBR high quality engine wiring harness for our E8G controller and with standard Ford connectors for all sensors, actuators, coils and injectors.
- Power supply cable with main relay and fuse plus connections for fuel pump relay, fan relay and tach.
- E8G gasoline calibration for the standard crate engine using standard fuel injectors, ignition coils, throttle body and all sensors.  Loads of power and torque.
- Bosch TMAP air pressure and air temperature sensor used for calibration.

This kit controls all standard sensors, coils and actuators:
- The standard drive-by-wire throttle body, reading its data stream directly.
- Variable camshaft timing in closed loop.
- Variable oil pressure in closed loop.
- Standard ignition coils.

Installation:
Installing our control pack is straight forward:
- Fit the adapter for the Bosch pressure and temperature sensor.
- Fit our new engine harness, it comes complete with original connectors, nothing to modify on the engine.
- Plug the throttle pedal in.
- Plug the included power supply harness into the engine harness power connector.
- Connect the two power supply wires according to the instructions.
- Connect the fuel lines and adjust your fuel pressure to 58 psi.  Use premium gasoline only.
- Connect the headers to the exhaust system.
Your engine is now ready to be started, no calibration or adjustments are required. 
We have done all the hard calibration work.

Connection to instrument cluster:
Our ECU can send data via CAN to almost any instrument cluster which have a CAN link for importing data.
We are building a database for instrument clusters for which we have confirmed they will function with our ECU.  Please contact us if you are in doubt whether your cluster is able to import data via CAN and how to set it up.

*BREAKING NEWS*  -  *BREAKING NEWS*  -  *BREAKING NEWS*
We are working on an update of the software which will add a true OBD II port to the system. 
With this option you can plug any OBD II scan tool into the connector on our wiring harness to read engine data. 
You will also be able to connect a stand alone display module which is prepared for OBD II communication.

Where to purchase our Godzilla control pack:
Our kit is supplied through selected specialist dealers across the country, these tuning shops can access E8G's software features.
So if you are thinking about modifying your engine, for example by fitting a high performance camshaft, fitting a supercharger or going for a turbo solution, our kit is easily updated to accept such changes.  Ask us about these performance updates.

Dealer inquiries are welcome.

Options for the Godzilla control pack....

Kit options include:
- Coolant plug kit.
- Ford drive-by-wire throttle pedal with wiring.
- Optional closed loop fuel control by adding 2 x wide band lambda sensors to the kit.
- Alternator fitting kit.
- Shift controller for 6R80 automatic transmission.
- Fuel pressure sensor.
- Upgrade kit with injectors, new TMAP sensor plus upgraded calibration for boosted engines.
- Traction control.

Coolant Plug Kit
Our coolant plug kit is required to block off the coolant outlet in the block on the driver side and to block off one of the coolant pipes for the heater.  This pipe is located in the front of the block, next to the thermostat housing.

 

 

Ford Drive-By-Wire Pedal Kit
This kit is a direct plug in for use with our control pack.  Supplied with connection cable.

Wide Band Lambda Sensors
By adding one or (preferably) two wide band lambda sensors to your control pack the system monitors, regulates and learns the optimum fuel injection.
This is perfect way to ensure your engine always runs at its optimum calibration.

Calibration Upgrade Kit - High Flow Fuel Injectors & 3 bar MAP sensor
If you are planning to build a high performance engine with power exceeding 570 hp you will have to consider replacing the standard fuel injectors.  These new injectors flow a lot more fuel, rated at 67 lb/hr @ 58 psi fuel pressure.  They are a direct replacement of the standard injectors, same length and same connector.  These injectors flow enough gasoline to reach up to 1,000 hp with the right fuel pressure.  Using E85, there should be enough flow to reach over 700 hp.

The injectors can be supplied as a kit with a manifold air pressure and air temperature sensor, having a 3 bar absolute pressure range.  This sensor directly replaces the 1 bar absolute air pressure sensor supplied with our standard control pack.  No modifications to the control pack engine wiring harness is required.
This upgrade kit also includes a modified calibration for use with these injectors and the 3 bar MAP sensor.

Fuel Pressure Sensor Kit
150 psi stainless steel fuel pressure sensor kit complete with adapter cable plugs straight into the OBR engine harness.  No re-calibration is required, the control pack is configured for use with this sensor kit.
The sensor has a 1/8-27 NPT male thread, compatible with most pressure regulator blocks.

Manifold Air Pressure (MAP) Sensor Kit for Supercharged and Turbo Engines
60 psi stainless steel air pressure sensor kit complete with adapter cable plugs straight into the OBR engine harness.  To use this sensor a re-calibration of the control pack is required, please contact us for assistance.
The sensor has a 1/8-27 NPT male thread.

Alternator Fitting Kit
The crate engine is supplied without an alternator.  We have a kit available to fit an alternator to the engine.
This kit includes all necessary parts for the installation including the drive belt:
- Alternator
- Bracket
- Belt tensioner
- Pulley
- Mounting bolts
- Belt

Automatic Transmission Shift Controller
Check back here soon to follow our progress in offering a solution for controlling at first the 6R80 and later the 10R80 automatic transmissions.

Lambda Kit for Engine Development
For engine development work, where the combustion in each individual cylinder must be monitored, please see our kit OB401.  The ECU in our control pack can import lambda data from additional sensors via CAN, up to 16 sensors can be added to the system.

Control pack for supercharged engine....

The control pack for use with a supercharged 7.3 V8 'Godzilla' engine is based on our E8G ECU, programmed with a tune specifically for this kind of engine performance.  As with the standard control pack, this ECU is specially configured to control ALL standard features on the Ford engine, you do NOT have to change or modify any sensor or actuator on the engine.

Our 'Supercharger" kit includes these parts:
- OBR E8G stand alone engine controller - ONE single module to control your engine!
- New OBR high quality engine wiring harness for our E8G controller and with standard Ford connectors for all sensors, actuators, coils and injectors.
- Power supply cable with main relay and fuse plus connections for fuel pump relay, fan relay and tach.
- E8G gasoline calibration for the standard crate engine fitted with a supercharger, high flow fuel injectors, ignition coils, throttle body and all sensors.  Loads of power and torque.
- A performance TMAP sensor is used for this calibration, allowing a boost pressure up to 8 to 10 psi.
- 8 high flow fuel injectors to replace the original injectors on the crate engine.
- 2 lambda sensors for closed loop fuel control.

This kit controls all standard sensors, coils and actuators:
- The standard drive-by-wire throttle body, reading its data stream directly.
- Variable camshaft timing in closed loop.
- Variable oil pressure in closed loop.
- Standard ignition coils.

Installation:
Installing our control pack is straight forward:
- Fit the adapter with the manifold air pressure and temperature sensor.
- Replace the standard fuel injectors with those supplied in the kit.
- Fit our new engine harness, it comes complete with original connectors, nothing to modify on the engine.
- Plug the throttle pedal in.
