EE like above or the RP Caster kit. You would need to buy the M90 unit separately and it won't pass smog but the M90 is way better than the blower used in the EE kit and the RP kit costs way less.

AND more power can be had from the RP Caster and M90 combo. But...the only downside IMO, is that the Explorer Express kit looks like a factory install. Where the RP kit, does not. Won't stop me from getting the RP though. lol.

Where you can get it is here, have you thought of doing underdrive pulleys and Efan?

plus going through T.T performance might be able to get a little bit of a discount, because i believe he is shutting his shop down at the end of the year.

I like my explorer express kit, start making more power than the EE kit makes your gonna break junk. Alot of stuff too.

People are making over 400hp with the EE kit. (plus some) So the EE kit isnt that limited.

Both kits are good and can produce great horsepower... It all depends on how much you wanna spend. Rcaster is cheaper but deals do come up every now and again on both kits..

I will sell you my supercharger if you are serious. 2k is the price, and you will need to find your own tune.

I had planned on pulling the blower off around November, but if you are serious and want to pay then i will start taking it off tonight. I am only taking it off because I have a 5.4L that is going in the truck soon.
