Is there a kit to put the Lightning Eaton on a 4.0 sohc?

I have access to a good used MN112 Eaton from a Lightning and I was wondering if there was a kit to put this blower or the MN112 from the Cobra on the 4.0 Ranger. I.E. a manifold, fuel system, drive kit, minus the blower.

It would take a custom lower intake and a custom.. or lighting (HD too) upper, elbo, and TB.

Keep in mind that even a 112 pushing 6-8 psi generates a lot of heat. So a intercooler system is needed to be incorporated into the lower.

*THEN* there is the whole efficiency issue.

You'd be money, and power consumption ahead to just buy and fab up a centrifugual type of blower.

Well, I have seen the M90 used and while that is a better sized blower to this app. don't forget that that bigger MN112 will generate less heat at 6psi than the M90 because of its size. You take a YS trim Vortech and boost it to 10psi on a Mustang and the heat generated by that big blower would be similar the the heat generated by a cooled street Vortech. The bigger blower actually makes less heat at the same psi. Sure it may be overkill, but boost is boost. Though is would take more power to turn. There are just a lot of used MN112s circulating because of KB or Whipple conversions, so I would think this kit would have been considered.

Me too. Just think it would be a good kit. BTW, the MN112 would be more efficient and cooler than the M90 many use. It would be hard to fit though with out a cowl hood or something.

BTW, that Explorer Express kit is nice, but that blower is way too small. An M65 is what Jackson uses on their Acrua kits if I am not mistaken. Meant for much less cid than what the 4.0 has.

On a short stroke motor you don't want a roots or twin screw type of blower. A procharger w/intercooer is what I'd use if I wanted to go down that road.

BTW "boost is boost" is only 1/3rd the picture. Torque required to make it, and efficiency range at a given rpm/boost level are the other 2/3rds.
