Time and money.
The ECU hasn't been cracked yet. The biggest hurdle will be getting the 2.3 computer to work with the 2.7. Or, the 2.7 computer to work with the manual transmission.
Almost halfway through 24, whats taking so long?

Takes to much time and money and still no one has really cracked the electronic side. And probably not enough interest in a swap like this for anyone to really tackle it.

There was a shop working on a 5.0 swap. They were working on it for like a year and half two years then just went dark. No updates, no nothing. Seems like they either went out of business or couldn't get it working and just went silent.

Will someone eventually get it, I am sure.

How much would a custom bell housing cost? What would it take to swap in a 2.7 into a 2.3 with a stick
The bellhousing is part of the transmission case. So unless you're going to design a whole custom transmission case, the only other option would be an adapter plate. Either way it would probably be a ton of money

Adaptor plate works as well

Shame it's 4 years in and no meaningful swaps and cracked ECU's

Took 3 years to crack the C8 corvette ECU, and a lot more people cared about doing that.
Far less demand for Bronco, so it'll probably be a lot longer.

Such a shame such a shame.

Why do manufacturers lock up their ECU's on performance cars to begin with?

They've been focusing a lot more heavily on it lately because of OTA updates. Last thing they want/need is someone being able to easily hack into the vehicle.
