Default Re: EcoBoost Swap?

What about an ecoboost out of an edge? The 2.0L may be an easier fit than the one from an f150. Possibly cheaper? Found one online for $2 grand. Not really sure of how to do the conversion just thought I'd throw out there for someone who might be thinking about doin it.

I think they should start making rangers again and put those ecoboost engines in them then they will get better mileage than the new F150s

You might as well just turbo it yourself. You are gonna pay out the ass for ford stuff. Plus I've seen people turbo 2.3s no problem.

Or you could just drop 800 on a turbo kit for the 2.3 which is openly available.

There are a lot of People who have used the 4tb cummins engine...
You can fun a few videos on YouTube. It's been done on both newer models and older models.
Those motors have TONS of torque and great gas milage and not to mention it sounds fucking amazing!
