Ford Performance has been offering custom calibrations for a wide variety of models including the Ford Focus ST and Ford Mustang for years now, giving owners the chance to unlock more power from their rides while also maintaining all factory warranties. These calibrations have proven to be popular for that very reason, along with the fact that they’re coming from the manufacturer itself – not some random shop. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the Ford Bronco will be getting two different Power Pack calibrations from Ford Performance as well.
Both of these calibrations will be available in 2022 – one for the Ford 2.3L EcoBoost I-4, and one for the 2.7L EcoBoost V6. The 2.7 Power Pack will launch first with the part number M9603-B27, followed by the 2.3 calibration later on, which will be listed in the Ford Performance catalog with the part number M9603-B23. No additional details are available for the 2.7 calibration as of this writing, but the 2.3 tune is expected to be similar to what is currently offered for the Ford Ranger, though the focus with the Bronco calibration is on torque – not peak horsepower – to aid in off-road conditions.
Sources tell Ford Authority that the Ford Bronco 2.3 Power Pack could net gains of around 25 horsepower and 30-40 pound-feet of torque for Ford’s I-4. The Ranger’s Power Pack provides an extra 45 horsepower and 60 pound-feet of torque from the same powerplant and optimizes the shift schedule for Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission, but also comes with a Ford Performance high-flow K&N air filter.
Ford’s existing performance calibrations are emissions legal in all 50 states, and also come with a warranty. If the calibration causes an issue on a vehicle within 3 years or 36,000 miles, Ford will fix the vehicle under warranty. If the performance calibration did not cause the issue, the base Ford warranty still applies. The kit needs to be installed by an A.S.E. certified shop or Ford dealer to qualify for this coverage, however.
