Default EcoBoost Swap?

So I was wondering if anyone has tried to do an EcoBoost engine swap in a Ranger?
If so is there a build thread?

I'd love to have an eco boost in mine. Been thinking about it for a while. It'll never happen though but I'd love to see it done

That would be sick!
But unlikely to happen seein as how that engine probably cost more than most of our trucks are worth.

I don't believe it has. Time for you to be the first to do it. I'd love to try it, but I can't afford to do it.

Ha!! I wish I had the funds to put a 3.7L 365hp, 420 lb-ft in my Ranger! But I would be concerned with not being able to put the power down to the road, especially since mine is a 2WD. You would have to put a half ton steel plate over the rear axle...
I am, however, open to donations and help to have this done to mine... :-D

Someone needs to do it. Think of the MPG gain you would get. Like, 25-27. That or the 305 hp 3.7 V6.
