Which 7.3 Godzilla?

Hi,
I have a 2021 Sunseeker with the 7.3 Ford Godzilla engine. This motor can have either 350 or 300 HP in the Ford E series.
My question is: how do you determine which is under my hood?
Thanks for your response.

I would take the chassis VIN number and go to Ford dealership and see if they can help you.

No I did not get a Certificate of Origin. Don't know if this is required in Canada. Thanks for your reply. Really appreciated.

They put the 350 in MotorHome chassis. The 300 is for utility vehicles.

You should go to Ford.com and look at the factory specifications for that motor. The numbers(specs) are a lot higher than what you have stated.

I am sorry I put the wrong information up here. I looked up the F series instead of the Econoline. I apologize.

I am very happy with my Godzilla. It is very strong. I can use cruise control most of the time with no down shifting. I have not gotten too far away from home yet, but what hills I have come to it just runs right up them without down shifting. Even with the Grand Cherokee in tow it feels very strong. It is actually better than I had hoped.

From what I've read in previous articles it's programmed for performance when used for RV. Economy is for applications other than RV.
