You can't beat the stock manifold for low/ mid range torque.

Urbanspacedude91 Manifold I always thought were high rpm. I feel like internals is the best way for low end if you want serious numbers. Correct me if I'm wrong anybody.

streetfocus So is there any IM that would allow the 2.0 bottom end to retain some low end torque? Maybe this is really a lot of trouble for little gain...

JSV578 I agree that the ranger intake isn't any upgrade to any set-up, but I wouldn't say that the fact it have a 2.0 head have anything to do with the better or not since the 2.0 and 2.3 have the exact same port dimension. my 0.02

Outlaw5.0 The Ranger 2.3 uses the 2.0 cylinder head, so the Ranger intake would be no better than the 2.0 Focus intake.

JSV578 yes the first gen with Duratec, 2001 to 2004
