The 2.3L Ecoboost made its way into the Ranger. Ford is doing a good job of using this engine everywhere to maximize the economies of scale. Check out all the insulation used on the cat and exhaust.
I think I guesstimated the exhaust being around 2.5” diameter, so there’s some room to uncork some power. The long thing that looks like a cargo carrier next to the drive shaft is the gas tank.
An F-150 chassis with 3.5L Ecoboost V6 was flipped on its side. So if you ever wondered what a truck looked like underneath the body, this is it.
A heat shield protects the electric actuator from the heat coming off the exhaust manifold. The actuator has the extra linkage of course. That manifold is definitely not designed for making power.
In the name of NVH, a huge mass damper is welded to the turbo downpipe.
