Back to feeling optimistic, found one on EBay that was actually in stock. It is on its way!

That is good news! It's a bugger to have to go back and redo all of the mental and preparation work around a big decision, and worse if $$$ are already committed down a certain path :(

Good news indeed. The ecoboost isn't the simplest motor to go aftermarket with is it. Having a tried and tested solution has to be the way to go.

That's why I went with Honda; due to its huge aftermarket community. Certainly not the cheap way to go but it pretty much guaranteed not ending up marooned with no solution to get it running.

That said, going turbo is a whole 'nother level and doing it over, going with an already-turbocharged engine would have made more sense. Glad you were able to push through this.
