Can't wait to start this same project myself! I've already purchased the Eaton M90, as well as a cold air intake. Haven't got the RP Caster kit yet. I plan on rebuilding the supercharger and having it powder coated prior to installation. I will probably be hitting you up for advise once I get started!


I ordered the cold air intake because the RP Caster guy said that I would need it, but judging by your pics, I'm not sure I do. Today I also ordered 2 Flowmaster high-flow cats and a single Flowmaster muffler that I plan to put a turn down on.

Install a 4:10 ring and pinion in it for great bottom end power.

Thanks! I already have 4.10 gears, stock. What I would like to do is install a limited slip differential in the rear. Just a stock Ford one would be good enough for me.

Anyone got any ideas about how to relocate the oil filler neck? That way the air intake tube could go straight into the throttle body instead of having to go around the neck. RP Caster has raised the price on his kit since adding the chrome intake tube. I'm thinking about asking him if he could hold the chrome parts, as well as the belt, to get a more reasonable price.

I changed the routing of my tubes....it ended up looking like the pic below. The final product is a little different from this photo since I got rid of the rear "joint" buy getting a single 3.5 to 3 reducer

If you're just talking about a silicone reducing coupling...

Here is just one of many results from Google:
http://www.amazon.com/Vibrant-12712-Silicone-Reducer-Black/dp/B003UTBGHE http://www.amazon.com/Vibrant-12712-Silicone-Reducer-Black/dp/B003UTBGHE



EDIT: Another site that has tons of silicone intake fittings (bent reducers, straight reducers, 30's, 45's, 60's, clamps etc.): http://www.siliconeintakes.com/index...e554729a3c4253
