I can’t be the only one excited about the idea of shifting gears when the bronco rolls out. Looking forward to the possibilities for the engine after everything with the mustang and ranger.
I agree I think we get too hung on up the HP/TQ numbers. Pop those doors and roof off, hear that turbo spool. It will be all good.The biggest mods I’ll probably do is full exhaust, big down pipe, intake, blow off valve for cool factor, and tune ?. No cats with the exhaust since I won’t have to smog for a few years. I don’t even think I’ll need much more power than stock, hell my 96 mustang Gt only made 215 engine hp lol. Little 2.3 puts out more Power than my 95,96, and 99 mustang Gt did. After a tune it’ll be right up there with my 07 mustang Gt.
I had an 03 Z and have had 2 modified STis as well. My current is a 2011 with FBO E85 and I’ve been spending some time on the Mustang Ecoboost forums and already have a similar plan if the Bronco mods follow what is available for the Mustang. There are fuel kits for E85 and port injection, drop in turbos, built 2.3 and 2.0 motors, etc.Previous vehicles 10+ years ago I had a 350z with NO2. It was a blast but a pain with bottle swaps. Vehicle after that was a 135i. Exhaust, tune, and downpipes where more than enough to enjoy that thing on the road. Thinking the same route with the bronco. Although meth would not be a bad option to help with the carbon build up.
