Manley Rod/Piston Combination for Ford 2.3L EcoBoost Engines

Manley Performance has introduced special forged aluminum pistons and forged steel connecting rods for the popular Ford 2.3L EcoBoost engine found in 2015-present Mustangs and the Ford Focus RS.

Manley Performance has introduced special forged aluminum pistons and forged steel connecting rods for the popular Ford 2.3L EcoBoost engine found in 2015-present Mustangs and the Ford Focus RS.

The premium grade Manley Platinum Series pistons are forged from race-proven 2618 aluminum alloy and designed to reduce reciprocating weight for improved performance. An offset wrist pin contributes to quiet start-ups. The skirts are Moly coated for extra durability and the pistons equipped with a pressure balance groove. The piston can also accommodate +1mm valve sizes.

On the connecting rod side of the equation, Manley also offers increased performance potential through weight reduction. Manley’s new H-beam rod for the 2.3L EcoBoost is forged from premium grade 4340 steel and precision CNC-machined to remove unnecessary weight. All rods are heat-treated, stress-relieved, shot-peened and 100% magnafluxed to assure optimum quality. They are equipped with ARP 8740 rod bolts and designed to handle in excess of 600 flywheel horsepower—more with optional ARP2000 bolts.
