Ok, whipple makes a supercharger, but told me on the phone it wont work with my 2001 3.0

I saw somebody on here say it was possible. If so has anyone here done it, and could you explain to me what is necessary to make it work.

Any help appreciated, thanks

The only one who has one on an 01' is Doug, and he has done alot of work to make it work. I think he is working a conversion kit, but I am sure he will come in and correct me.

Before it will even bolt on, you'll need a 2002+ lower intake to match the bolt pattern of the Whipple.

The EGR will be deleted, and there are numerous other tuning issues that will need attention.

I'll try to dig up some info for you.

Okay...quoted from Doug...

"1st The lower intakes. Yes, we all thought they are the same but they aren't. The late model, 02up I'm guessing maybe 01's, have smaller bolts. 6mm to be excat. They also only have 4 bolts securing the upper intake to the lower where as the previous year models have 6.

2nd The IAT. The 02up Fords have them intigrated into the Mass air meter, its a 6 pin connector. The early styles have a 4 pin mass air and the IAT is in the air tube.

3rd Manifold heater hoses or the hot water bypass will have to be done. The late models don't have this function, the small tubes run around the PCV valve instead of into the back of the TB.

4th EGR valve, forget about it. No way to hook it up no place to. Sorry you CARB and emissions guys, I wish I could tell you different."
