  1. 2.3 Liter Sasquatch vs Non Sasquatch?!?!?!

    If ANYONE has driven both a Sasquatch and a Non Sasquatch in a 2.3 Liter, I would love to hear from you! I have a 2022 Big Bend with Sasquatch on order, but am debating going back to the standard model. This Bronco is going to be on the pavement 90% of the time. The reason I chose the...
  2. AFE Power exhaust system for 2.3L Bronco

    AFE power just released their kits for the bronco. Looks like they fit both 2.3, 2.7, 2dr and 4dr. I bought their "hi tuck" one for $400 which is alot cheaper than the others. Converts over to 3inch pipe also. Only complaint is that it's not 304 stainless, but if it was then the price would be...
  3. 2.3L muffler delete [added sound clip]

    Took the muffler off last night after noticing it too much with the 4wp rear bumper and possibly hitting it offroading. Ordered a stainless turndown and band clamp, $30 total. For some reason the factory band clamp wouldn't clamp down enough on my pipe, so purchased one from napa. Its actually...
  4. [Poll] How stupid am I for clinging on to hope of a future 2.7 V6 / 7MT Bronco?

    Well guys, a year after being told "no" to this option combination, I'm still here daydreaming about it. I'd like to know if there is anyone else holding on to hope for this to happen in the future? @Ford Motor Company
  5. Tunes in CA - automatic FAIL!

    I'm in the 2.3MT tribe (MY '25?) so this news isn't good. Not surprising given the disaster the CA is - for many reasons - but still disheartening nonetheless. https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/ecu-tuned-cars-will-now-automatically-flunk-california-smog-testing/
  6. Compilation of 2.3L Reviews!

    2.3L Reviews TFL Cars “The smaller engine might not have the horsepower of the V6, but it’s lighter and definitely changes the feel of the truck. Making it even more agile.” -Kelley Blue Book “The 2.3 L engine is more than enough to keep pace with traffic, even in Eco mode and even with...
  7. Vacuum Brake Boost vs. Electronic Brake Boost?

    On the 2021 Bronco tech specs sheet, I noticed the following: The 2.3L gets vacuum brake boost, while the 2.7L gets electronic brake boost. What is the difference between the two systems? I haven’t been able to find much information online. I’ve also noticed a few other differences between...
  8. BaseSquatch Lurker Finally Joins!!

    Hi all, Long time lurker, brand new member. I’ve been browsing the forums since I made my reservation in July of 2020. Since I finally have a build date, I figured I’d make an account, so I can talk with other owners about our rigs. I’m very excited to see how everyone customizes these Broncos...
  9. 🎥: 2.3L 7-Speed Badlands Bronco ripping it in Michigan!

    The laugh in the second video. I love it!!
  10. Why I switched to the 2.3L over the 2.7L...

    The 2.7 is an extremely powerful engine. The twin turbos really add an incredible amount of torque. Unfortunately, I think the 2.7 has too much torque for the 10R60 transmission the Bronco is getting. In fact, the 10R60 transmission only has a torque rating slightly above what the stock 2.7 puts...
  11. THE my Bronco production build date has been DELAYED / MOVED BACK thread

    Well I can confirm 100% that plant shut downs have pushed back my production date. My order went from a 6/14 build week to a 7/5 build week. It is what it is..... I ordered a 2.7 BD 4D with the MIC top. I sold my Ranger today because I could not pass up the money that is being offered right now...
  12. Bronco Event at Team Ford in Las Vegas

    So great to finally see them in real life! And totally lucked out that they had a 2.3L manual BD which is my build (minus the 2 extra doors). The team that runs the event were awesome and let you crawl all over and in the vehicles. The MVG seats were super comfortable and the exterior and...
  13. 4 Door CG Black Diamond + Black OBX at Capitol Ford with some cargo area measurements

    Sorry no write up here, just sharing some pics I took for myself. Everything was already covered in this forum already, but I hope these are helpful for some too.
  14. BD 7spd + Mid inquiry

    Poll Flame me if you wish, but I am curious how many would do bd Manual + Mid if the option was to be allowed? I am pretty disappointed we are forced to BL for mid features for no apparent reason.
  15. Engines at Altitude

    Hi all. Apologies if this has already been covered - I searched around but couldn't find anything. I'm in Indiana, so I didn't have any concerns with the 2.3, but I'm considering a move to the Colorado Springs area. I'd be driving at high altitude a lot, and I wondered if I should have any...
  16. I test drove lifted 2.3 Ranger w/35s and 2.7 F150

    So this morning I went the nearest ford dealership and test drove both the Ranger 2.3 with lift kit and 35s and F150 2.7 Ranger 2.3 (lift and 35s) - so there is already a thread on this but I will state it again. The 2.3 is no slouch, when you want it to go it will go at a relatively quick...
  17. 2.3 Modifications from Ford Performance

    For those thinking about the 2.3 (including those sorry souls who want a manual with the 2.7 but are left contemplating the four-banger), here are the versions of the 2.3 currently produced by Ford: 280 hp at 5,600 rpm, 310 lb-ft at 3,000 rpm. Application: Ford Explorer, Ford Ranger. 285 hp at...
  18. Dyno comparison between the Ranger 2.3L and the F150 2.7L.

    Hope this graph can help people decide which engine choice to make based on more than just peak horsepower and torque numbers. The data is pulled from a well known EB tuner shop and I used the data from their baseline runs before tuning and modifications. The 2.3L was in a Ranger and the 2.7 was...
