    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    nope this is completely different than the 2.0 zetec. Aluminum block, timing chain, direct injection and all those other modern goodies. the zetec is a great platform but putting one of those in a ranger would be really complicated. rwd trans that mates to a zetec is really uncommon in the states

    i think somebody is building one of these.

    No AC, I am however running an aftermarket heater core in the cab. Trans is a stock 2002+ 2.3 ranger trans. 3.73 rear gears and a 7.5 open diff.

    Work in progress 1970s bradley GT kit car rebuild & motor swap

    wow, big price tag on that. I've made a lot of progress on this build since my last update and decided I dont need the back end to pop up. I'll post an update sometime with some pics. It runs, drives, and stops currently.

    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    yeah twin scroll on an already extremely small turbo makes boost come on so quick. Like dangerously quick in some cases. If I throw my truck in 5th and lug it at 1200 rpm is can make 20 psi of boost, which in that case would cause low speed pre ignition and damage lots of stuff. Its best to rev...

    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    Idk about dual turbo. only dual turbos ford has are the v6 ecoboosts and if I recall correctly their 2.2 (?) or whatever it is diesel they offered on the 2012-2017 or 18 rangers over in mexico or whatever. And you are correct about 2013 being the first technical year of the ecoboost, however I...

    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    That’s great to hear that you want to do an ecoboost swap! Right now I think the only option for a 4 cylinder ecoboost swap that bolts right up would be something from a 15-16 mustang or focus rs. As of right now ford does not sell a controls pack for the 2.0, it’s been discontinued for some...

    Work in progress 1970s bradley GT kit car rebuild & motor swap

    Been a bit since my last update here. But its nearly ready for a test drive. It runs, has fully working disc brakes, a fully working hydraulic clutch, and the shell is fully bolted in and ready to move. tight fit, but I made it work. btw the rattling noise in the vid is just a few wrenches...

    3.5L ecoboost or bust

    You've definitely got a huge thumbs up from me. Ive only wrenched on 4 banger ecoboosts but I'd definitely like to see a 3.5 in one. Funny because I was actually thinking about one in the future and ditching my 2.0L. Should be some crazy power for a ranger. The controls packs ford makes for most...

    I dont have dimensions on hand and tbh I dont really feel like working any more this weekend. Just spend 12 hours straight painting my truck yesterday.

    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    No problem! Personally I wanna see more of these swaps on the road. As of now I'm pretty sure mine is the only one. I've had a handful of people personally contact me about details on the swap and honestly I think at some point it would be fun as a little side hobby to fabricate custom motor...

    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    I very well might. I'll do a bunch of testing when I pull the trans this summer. Originally when I had the stock ranger clutch in it was just fine and didnt get hung up. so maybe its an issue with my new upgraded clutch.

    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    Flywheel, starter, clutch, and pressure plate are all ranger style parts I'm running. The clutch I'm using is a ranger style upgraded clutch rated for 400 ft lbs of torque. At one point I had the stock ranger clutch in thee just for testing but the 270 ft lbs of torque my 2.0 makes spun that...

    Work in progress 1970s bradley GT kit car rebuild & motor swap

    I got the shell to sit lower on it today. but im to the point where the rear suspension is hitting the roof in the rear. wheel gap from shell is around 7-8" and that will be where it sits for now. The whole shell itself sits way higher than the pan so tomorrow im going to work on welding up a...

    Work in progress 1970s bradley GT kit car rebuild & motor swap

    This is what I would like to do for the rear. I'll have to see how low I can get the shell first though.

    Work in progress 1970s bradley GT kit car rebuild & motor swap

    Yeah I've already got a good title in hand and all that. I shouldn't have to get it inspected or anything to get it registered since the title is clean and its not a "scrap" title or anything. Technically the scrap yard I purchased it from should have got the title changed over to a scrap title...

    Work in progress 1970s bradley GT kit car rebuild & motor swap

    Here's a little update with some pics and what all is going on with this thing. So, for the rear end its using a 97 ford escort subframe, control arms, and ball joints. The subframe had to be flipped upside down to fit right and there's still a lot of modification required. Currently ground...

    I've been a bit on the lazy side for updates on here. It's made a lot of progress. I'll post some pics later on today. Thanks for reminding me!

    2002 Ecoboost swapped Ranger build thread

    This was probably the most finnickey part of the swap for me. I messed with clutch engagement and disengagement for probably a good week or so. Im running an aftermarket ranger style clutch now good for 400 ft lbs of torque. make sure your clutch hydraulic system is bled! When I was on the stock...
