injection technologies... kinda like how they took a 4.6 V8 in the mustang from 245 in the late 90's to 315 in the 05-10 models... simple injection and ecu technologies.

The 3.0 with composite intake makes a few more hp than the non composite, didnt put that on there, but the main reason for it was so carbon buildup didnt occur as easily through there... wasnt made 100% for power, mostly for durability. The newer rangers have the 4.0 for V6... The 2010 4.0 engines in the rangers make 210 hp but the computer setup for it in the 2010 mustang gives the same engine 232... weird i know... that explain everything?

http://www.fordvehicles.com/trucks/ranger/specifications/engine/ says its 4.0 is back down to 207 hp and 238 tq but its still sexy lol
they dropped the hp rating to raise the torque a bit... it was just some fuel mapping changes in the ecu to try to make it more fuel efficient.

you know what said is the 2.3l is put out almost as much power and with cold air and exhaust your looking at an even small difference. so after a tune and some other stuff your looking a lil to no diff
thats true but take note that a modified 2.3 will keep up with a stock 4.0. i like my 3.0 personally. high compression allowed me to tow a honda civic the other day like a champ and its got goo power in a V6... made out of cast iron and will last forever, almost as long as the 2.3
