It's been a year since Ford took the wraps off its Megazilla crate engine, and now the naturally aspirated V-8 is available to order at Ford Performance, where it is priced at $22,995.
Ford Performance warns that the engine is intended for competition use or in vehicles driven off public roads, due to it likely violating emissions regulations.
The Megazilla shares its 7.3-liter displacement, 10.5:1 compression ratio, and a cast-iron block with the Godzilla, but spits out 615 hp at 5,800 rpm and 638 lb-ft of torque at 3,800 rpm. The Godzilla delivers a maximum 430 hp at 5,500 rpm and 475 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

In addition to more power, the Megazilla's upgrades over the Godzilla include Mahle forged pistons, Callies forged H-beam connecting rods, and CNC-ported cylinder heads. The Megazilla also features a low-profile intake manifold and the 92-mm throttle body from the previous Mustang Shelby GT500.
Among the extras included in the crate are coils, plug wires, and spark plugs, an oil pan, a wiring harness, and a storage cradle.
Ford hasn't mentioned the weight, but don't expect much difference from the 580 pounds of the Godzilla, considering the Megazilla uses the same cast-iron block design.
Ford hasn't said in which models the engine will fit, but the Godzilla can fit in the engine bays of the Super Duty, the F-150, and even the Mustang. Both the Megazilla and Godzilla use the same bellhousing bolt pattern as Ford's current 5.0-liter V-8, as well as the automaker's previous 4.6- and 5.4-liter V-8s.
