Livernois Announces Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 Intercooler

The current Ford Ranger is no slouch out of the box, packing 270 horses under the hood from its 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 in North America. Of course, one of the best ways to add more power is to force more cold, dense air into the lungs. Livernois Motorsports is ready to help with a new addition to its High-Flow family of intercoolers for the 2019 – 2021 Ford Ranger.

Once installed, the Livernois High-Flow intercooler – just announced at the 2021 SEMA Show – increases cooling capability 80 percent over the stock Ford Ranger setup. The dramatic drop in air charge temperature from the beefy intercooler means cooler, denser air for the 2.3L EcoBoost I-4’s turbocharger, which is definitely handy when the motor is built-out. Livernois says its intercooler can support power gains of up to 700 horsepower, while also severely reducing heat climb and soak issues that could make things unhealthy.

Livernois Motorsports already has a few items for the 2019 – 2021 Ford Ranger to pump up the volume under the hood. One of them is the MyCalibrator Tuner. The touchscreen tuner box is capable of boosting power up to 80 horses and 100 pound-feet of torque on 93 octane alone, and features mapping for all standard octane grades.

The tuner can even turn off the “skip gear” function on the 10-speed automatic, allowing the Ranger to use all of the gears, while also raising the factory limiter to higher top speeds. Pricing for the MyCalibrator Tuner is $599.99, with an optional window mount for $19.99, which places the box on the windshield.

Ford Ranger sales have been very healthy this year. Despite its late arrival compared to most of its rivals, which have been on the market for longer periods of time, the Ranger has carved out a healthy part of the segment, typically placing second in the space. Sales dropped substantially during the third quarter as a result of the ongoing microchip shortage, causing a lack of inventory.

    Can a driveshaft disconnect be installed on the 2020 Ranger Lariat, for flat towing behind a motorhome?
