2022 Ford Maverick 2.0L EcoBoost Now Compatible With Spacer Kit

Since its launch, the 2022 Ford Maverick has received a warm welcome from both eager new vehicle shoppers and the aftermarket alike – at least for models equipped with the Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost. Thus far, the compact pickup with that particular powerplant has received a trio of piggyback tunes from RaceChip that offer up to 29 additional horsepower and 33 pound-feet of torque, along with a 20 percent improvement to fuel efficiency, as well as more than one aftermarket exhaust system from MRT and MagnaFlow. Now, that list continues to grow with a new intake manifold and throttle body spacer kit from Boomba Racing.

Previously available for other models equipped with the 2.0L and Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engines, this intake and throttle body kit is now compatible with the 2022 Ford Maverick. The kit is made from billet aluminum and adds volume to the air entering the head, which presents a number of benefits including building boost sooner, aiding in in cylinder filling at lower RPM, and lengthening the effective wave pulse of the intake charge.

On the dyno, these benefits were immediately evident, as the Maverick gained a mere one horsepower – albeit with a smoother curve – along with an impressive 35 pound-feet of torque. The spacers do not require a tune and also aid fuel economy, according to Boomba Racing. All the necessary hardware is included, and color options include a blue, red, black, and natural finish.

For a retail price of $271, this Maverick intake and throttle body spacer kit seems like a pretty affordable way to gain some extra torque in the economical pickup, as well as perhaps save a little fuel, to boot. Given how quickly the Maverick’s aftermarket is expanding, however, it certainly won’t be the last such upgrade we come across.

    here we go again, showing us accessories that make the Maverick more appealing, and again bling for a vehicle we don’t or can’t have yet. i appreciate that the aftermarket vendors are creating item to make the maverick better but the frustration level for offering these items for something we can’t get is infuriating. BUILD THE DAMN TRUCKS then offer the accessories not the other way around. now Ford is asking its’ customers to drop ordered options to help them produce their vehicles instead of making sure those orders are fulfilled as ordered by pressuring the vendors or departments that are responsible for those options. i know i’ll hear about supply issues but you can’t tell me that a corporation as powerful as the major car builders can’t figure our how to secure needed resources. get in the way of their bottom line (bonuses) and they’ll figure that out!!

    Why not build them that way? Who wouldn’t pay a few $$ for more HP, torque and better mileage.

    1. TOM

      Bill, i’d agree with the first four words, WHY NOT BUILD THEM. performance would be nice, owning one is the first step, Ford you catching my drift yet?? give us a truck and we’ll support the aftermarket market ourselves, gotta leave some meat on the bone for at least some americans to make a living with

    as with all performance enhancing items the designers created the vehicle to operate at designed specs and by adding the performance you are probably exceeding those designs and introducing additional loads to those designs. sure it is nice to get a little extra performance but you could be introducing failure or premature wear and tear. they do build in some ability to enhance performance but beware and if you need a powerhouse buy a powerhouse don’t hammer a scalpel into a fork, buy what you need don’t try to create it.

    can I order a suv threw your order bank thanks George 301-743-9740

      you don’t want to use the dealer i ordered thru, ordered in dec 21 ain’t heard a word yet!! other than excuses and the dealer know less than i do or at least acts like it. if you haven’t got one on order now you’re in for a long wait, ordering doesn’t reopen until sept as of now could get pushed back, think ford wants to get the 22s built before they have to let the 23s go for current order holders so they keep pushing the building 23 start date back. then you’ll have to wait for them as we order holders have 9+ months some over a year, unless ford gets its’ act together, doubtful very doubtful
