We are able to keep costs down by designing around the Eaton M90 3rd generation supercharger that was used in the Ford T-Bird “supercoupe” from 1989 to 1995. The inlet (must) be the oval as in late 1995 Ford went to a rectangular that is (not) “compatible” with this kit.
Q: Do you have any pics after install? I have a 2002 Edge 4X4 4.0L. Do you sell superchargers, or have a source to suggest? Mar-19-06
A: The supercharger can be picked up on Ebay almost anytime. It's an M90 used in the Supercoupe T-Bird with oval inlet. I got the one in my 2002 Ford Ranger for $112.00. They are going up in price now as demand is increasing. You can still get one for around $250.00 tho. If you send me your email address I will send you some pic's. Mine is email@example.com
Q: I sure hope you're going to keep having these for a couple months. Mar-12-06
A: In a couple of months there should be more inventory. All 3-Colors for quick ship.
Q: How does this kit compare to the X-Charger kit in your opinion ? They claim to be getting 80 Hp out of their kit - Have you considered getting their chip ? Are you using the same fuel injector size ? Where does one get & how much are they - the Eaton blower ? Mar-05-06
A: The X-Charger is a nice kit, using the Eaton MP62 supercharger. It lists for $3995.00 for the Ford Ranger. My kit uses a larger Eaton M90 supercharger, but it is out of the earlier Thunderbird supercoupe, that you can get on EBAY used from between $120.00 to $250.00. My original intent was to provide a setup for about half the going price. They state they get 74 plus HP at 6 psi boost. Check out the Jan 2006 article Project Range Runner in Four Wheeler magazine. The final Dyno results were 225hp and 257lb ft tq. My Dyno results are 216hp and 250lb ft tq. This relates to me putting out 9hp less and 7lb ft tq less than the X-Charger at 5.5lbs boost. I don't think this is too bad using the stock injectors and maf. Kind of makes you wonder what could be accomplished with a smaller pulley, pick up minimum of 3lbs boost. 30lb injectors instead of the stock 24lb, 80mm gt maf, SCT performance tune, etc. Check out my website and you can see other info. I can say that I've had this setup on my Ranger since last April, with no problems. I've put 22,000 miles on it, and it is my daily driver. I put on aprox 150 miles per day. Any other questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. PS check out my website for add'l info.
