OEM Parts Interchange | 1.6L Ecoboost
The 1.6L Ecoboost found in the Transit Connect is a shared engine between a few different Ford vehicles including the Escape, Fusion, and Fiesta ST. While there are slight differences in engines, largely, they are identical. Here you will find a few OEM parts that have been CONFIRMED to fit the Transit Connect Ecoboost.
1. Focus RS Air Box:
Before anyone goes and points out that the lid dosen’t seal to the bottom of the hood, look at the K&N air filters with the open ends, same effect, hot air. Simple fix, drive faster. lol. It is a very noticeable increase in throttle response and overall performance. Probably less than 5hp, but still noticeable. I’ve also noticed about a 3mpg increase since the installation which includes a K&N Air filter.
Price: ~$60.00 (not including performance air filter)
