Eaton M90 with Caster and Morse Novelties kit

Anyone have experience or have heard anything about this kit. I picked up a M90 from the jy the other day for $60. It's nice having a buddy who's dad is the manager at a jy. Anyway, the blower is in good shape. There is no play in the shaft and it spins freely. I was planing on rebuilding it anyway.

www.rangerpowersports.com uhh have fun. They're lowered guys and probably hate us as much as a lot of people here hate them. So just login and check out the forum for engines/supercharged. A member "RPCaster" over there made that kit

Well I don't see a need for an intercooler with only 5.5 lbs a boost unless I were to change the pulley but I don't plan on doing that until I build the motor which probably wont happen. Also there is ports in the back of the manifold for water or alcohol injection if I do decide to raise boost. I just like the fact that is not $4k like the Explorer Express kit. The guy that originally designed the M90 kit got a 60 hp increase. I think thats pretty good.

I know what you mean. Once I have boost I will want more. But I can keep it at stock psi. I'm not trying to build a race truck but the extra 60hp will be nice.

I will be building something on the side to be my race car.

I will. I have to do a few other things first like a clutch and my front axle seals but I figure 4 or 5 months and I can have it on my truck.

I have rpcaster supercharger kit on my truck. Its a great over all kit and pretty easy to install. You can run his kit with stock injectors and stock maf but it is not recommended. With a mild tune with the stock injectors and stock maf i got 204 wrhp but my maf was pegged at only 3-4 psi. I was using the stock pulley. Since I have a 05 ranger our injector connectors are EV-6 style which is great because i was able to plug straight in 03 cobra 39.5lb injectors. With his kit I you will need a bigger maf and injectors to be safe. I had 80mm mustang gt maf but couldn't not get it wired correctly so now i have an 85mm pmas maf and had someone wire it correctly. The stock fuel pump is suffient enough, it barely dropped pressure when I was hitting 5 psi. All little more about the kit. The only thing that I do not like about it is how the egr is relocated. He routes copper piping to the new locations. The connectors to connect the pipeing are prone to leaks. they are hard to seal, but if done right you can get them not to leak. Also with his kit you will have to have a custom intake made or make it yourself. The oil fil cap is the pain. It is really hard to get around. I acheive getting around it with a 4inch coupler that reduces to 3 inchs at a 45 degree angle. It was very hard to find that coupler. If you make a custom intake yourself with alumium pipeing you will need that coupler to get around the intake. Those are the only few issues with his kit. Nothing major though. You can see my truck on youtube. just type in supercharged ranger and mine is the green truck with the hood up.

His kit cost 1495.00
M90 supercharger $500 at the most
maf $180 02 80mm mustang gt or pmas maf 85mm $385 plus maf pigtail $32
injectors $108- $350
spark plugs NGK TR-6 about $15
IAT sensor $30 plus pigtail $18
X-cal 2 $379.99
Dyno tune max would be $375
giveing around a grand total of $3079.99
That is probally going to be the most it will cost. Some of the prices you will find cheaper. That is a rough estimate. Its a great kit and the smallest pulley i would go with, with stock internals would be a 2.9inch pulley you should get between 5-7psi which is the highest i would recommend going with the compression ratio.

My truck does not have a egr so I wont have to worry about that. I don't plan on installing the kit until I have everything I need. So if its better to run the mustang maf and bigger injectors then so be it. The last thing I need is a rod through the block on my daily driver.

My setup in the video i had a 2.9inch pulley, 03 cobra injectors, 85mm maf, and stock fuel pump. Unfortunatly I went the longest time without the maf wired correctly. I had a hard time finding someone or someone with information on what wire goes where when connecting the new maf. In the mean time of driving it too different places trying to get the maf wired correctly there was a spark knock or somthing which weakened the pistons and after the tune no couple miles down the road my engine blew. I got home and there was oil coming out of my intake. I poped the tops to all three pistons on the drivers side. This would not have happened if i had the maf wired correctly in the first place and had the truck towed to the dyno shop and tunned right away. So now my truck is being rebuilt and should be done here shortly and i will have hardcore hp numbers to show and a video. If anyone has any questions just ask I am the guy to go to about this kit. I watch the people at rps and half of the people tell other the wrong things and blew their motors. I learned from my mistakes and i know what it takes to run this kit safely the first time.

During my dyno run with the stated upgrades. Remember my motor was already hurt and had blow by occuring already my numbers were 276 ft-lb tq and 179wrhp at 5psi. This was on a mustang dynamometer thats 8% conservative. With a motor that is not hurt and everything is installed correctly, on a dynojet With 4:10 gears and a 5speed auto 4x4 like i have you should see numbers i would guess close to if not over 300 ft-lb tq and around 240wrhp if not more. Our rods are strong and you shouldnt send one through the wall with this kit or the EE. If anything the the piston rings will go first and need to be replaced with lower compression pistons. If everything thing is done correctly and kept under 7 psi you will have no problems and could still be a dd. What i quoted this kit as is a high price. It can be done under $3000 and still acheive the same in not more hp than the EE. I wouldnt risk anything though if your truck as 100,000 miles or more on it. Then i might think twice about superchargeing because you are more prone to a piston ring failure.

I was going to ask you that. I have about 90k now and by the time I actually buy everything I might have over 100k. I will see what If I can do it before 100k but if not then I will sell the blow. I only paid $60 for it.
