Came across a supercharger online

This isn't the same as the whipple right? Is it for real or has anyone ever heard of it? In the search put ranger info in and see what comes up. http://www.boosthead.com/product.php

wait wait wait.... 525 hp max!!!

Rangers lead the way!

Your bone-stock Ford Ranger V6 produces 100 to 135 HP at the wheel, and it's going to take a lot more than 135 horse to move 4,000 pounds of American steel past that balsa-and-plastic ricer. Sure, after he passes on the left and cuts you off, you might scratch your bumper when you push his neon license plate holder out through his Euro-style headlights, but that's the extent of your bragging rights. We at Boosthead.com will help you kick it up a notch. Bolt on one of our Dyno-tested, track-proven Eaton superchargers and your HP will jump 60-100 wheel HP at an incredibly low 5-7 psi boost.

And if you're a highly motivated boosthead, the Eaton can produce up to 525 HP on a built engine with ported blower, front mount intercooler**, etc.

But the instant boost and huge gains aren't the only factors that make our Eaton superchargers a superior product. The Eaton is incredibly reliable, averaging 150,000 miles between overhauls. It requires less maintenance. And the installation is simple. An intercooler option is available**. You shouldn't even have to get underneath your car. Our kit includes all the essential parts to fully install your Eaton using common hand tools.

The 3.0 kit may require a small hood scoop to clear, depending on your model. All 4.0 trucks do not require a hood scoop email us if you have any questions about compatability. **Intercooler not included, but can be added in the future.

Includes Fully race-ported Eaton supercharger, supercharger manifold, throttle body plenum, drive pulleys and idlers, bolts, serpentine belt, fuel management unit, and boost gauge.

Fits 3.0, 4.0 OHV AND SOHC ENGINES

Drive System Roots-type

Power Source Belt-driven
Max Recommended PSI Stock engines 5-7PSI

Maximum CFM
Maximum HP 525

Maximum Duration Unlimited

Installation Time 12+ hours


haha yeah right!

oh and "belt drive turbos" wtf....

Haha, Good thing I didn't have $4000 laying around and an impulse because I would have got suckered. I guess that's a good reason to post on here.

A centrifugal supercharger is a belt driven turbo. Wheatman has one on his truck.


Thomas Knight makes legit stuff. They don't make your typical hair dryer motor that bolts to your intake. They make roots blowers with 3 motors that bolt on to your engine like a Kenny Bell and they make about 10 psi.

Did you read the rest of what I typed? I'm sure no one thought you could make power by using exhaust back in the day but look at turbos now. It's a different approach to making power. This isn't any ebay quality crap.

Wheatman seems happy with his set up. I would have no problems using that set up. The ranger world has had problems with the manufacturer dating back several years. I guess the big problem is giving a guy that finally made a useable product a second chance.
