Default crazy idea

i wonder what the dimensions of the new 3.5 eco boost is and if it would fit in a ranger
i know it would take a lot of work and money but what if in a few years you found one in a wrecking yard.
it says it gets 22mpg and has good power.
im gonna look into this crazy idea

IF you could get it into a ranger, it would probably get better MPG than advertised since the ranger has to weigh less than F150. I don't know how practical or possible it would be. But it would be a pretty epic project.
