Supercharging 4.0 SOHC 2005

Hey guys just starting a thread recently replaced the engine in my truck after 1 1/2 years of knocking haha she just wouldn't die so I treated her to a new engine. https://www.ranger-forums.com/4-0l-ohv-sohc-v6-tech-33/valves-bad-head-gasket-bad-2005-ranger-4-0-a-118664/

Here and now....
I'm starting my project of getting a supercharger installed on my truck! Its from a Riviera and its a Eaton M62, just wondering if you guys think I should have it ported very slightly to remove the casting humps at the bottom and have em edge the port is there any other places recommended to port?. Or leave it alone, I'm also gonna be rebuilding the Snout (anyone recommend a kit? I'm cleaning the rotor walls but not cleaning the rotors. Any other tips? Going to keep the pulley stock until my old motor is built up its in pieces right now awaiting performance heads/cams/all forged internals and a ported block up to 4.3L I'm looking to push that one to 400 horsepower(WITH FULL BUILT MOTOR AND BORE......) with the supercharger swapped and intercooled on it. Should make for one fast *** V6

...............Some Later point. .............................

Currently inputting all my measurements into SolidWorks 2010 and about to create prints to be sent off to have CNCed and mocked up. Hopefully we get it right the first time and I don't have to modify the work.

Fabricating the entire thing in-house. Just got Dynoed for my Stock Non Supercharged base Run.

Don't see why

Should be something close to that... Hopefully, I kinda see it as a possibility when you'd have all that work into the engine. With just the M90 and all the bolt on's you can possibly do I wouldn't doubt I'll have like 200-220 wheel, with the correct tune. A M90 at 15 PSI with an Intercooler is what would help put the icing on the cake with a built engine. But that's for later....

Fixed the post to clear confusion hahaahah

Yeah, about 4000 for the motor to be built. But that's the cost to be Unique.

Don't want to, way too much wiring work is needed. And its not unique.

I'm excited to see this build. I am considering doing an all built 4.3L swap at some point as well. I defiantly agree in the uniqueness. It's gonna be great.

What are you doing for the transmission?

To start its just gonna be the M90 on my Stock 4.0 SOHC with 85k Miles. With stock transmission. Then when I get close to completing the Engine build up on the old motor I'm takin my truck to my buddies dad who owns a transmission shop and he's going to build it up and put a nice shift kit in.

RPCaster sells a kit to put the M90 on 01+ SOHC Rangers. It's EXPENSIVE. They recommend the use of t-bird M90s because they have the oval mount. If the M90 you use has the square mount you are on your own. As far as running it on a stock 4.0 you cannot go over 5PSI of boost. You will blow that engine into next week. Keep the PSI low until you get the built engine in. You can ask beard about supercharging the 4.0, his was.

Personally I am not going to supercharge, just do a built 4.3.

I've not been a big advocate for putting any kinda fan infront of the 4.0 -- with all the holes cast into the deck surface, there just doesn't seem to be enough rigid surface area to smash-seal a good headgasket in there.. Higher pressures and temps just seem to cause havoc at the sealing surfaces there. and adding a bit of bore wil only exacerbate things

The low pressure mentioned above is reasonable, but 15psi may not be something that you'll wanna see, unless you step-back the compression significantly (seriously, it's worth looking into at least, I fought hell on a customer's stang -- same deal -- he went all overdrive on pulleys and just blew through head gaskets on a flat deck and heads...)

I'm going to have to make a completely custom kit, I've already been designing the Prints in SolidWorks 2011 and I have someone who goes to the University of Wisconsin Stout and they have a huge CNC I just need to tell him what material I need and I already know because of this link. so now I'm just modifying it to work with my Supercharger.

Screw solid works we're going to attempt to do this in house now. Got someone who's decent at welding who's willing to take a whack at it, I'm going to start getting materials and such Monday to get started! If all goes well I might put my sketches up here for others to do for themselves!

^^ X2 and us 2004 + Ranger owners don't want to go to a 2003 and older cluster.
I'd like to do a V8 swap, but nobody has figured out how to do V8 swap with a 04 + cluster.

Alright guys I got my Baseline Dyno done yesterday! Pretty impressive numbers for a truck with just an Intake, Exhaust, Headers and tune. !!

HP: 197 Torque: 218

Looks like after I supercharge the next place to put money would be ported heads as my HP falls off.

Yeah those come next I plan on building my other block up and putting a M112 blower on it.

Quick question for anyone who's supercharged. What plugs should I run?

i hate to rain on your parade, but there is no way you are going to get 400 at the wheel with any of these superchargers. you are going to need to add something else..in particular, im talking nitrous, thats about it..to that supercharger you have, you are gonna need like a 100-150 shot of nos..for a m112 you might only need something down like a 50 shot.

are you doing the engine work yourself? this engine is not cost friendly. you cant bore it out to a 4.3L you might be able to buy a stroker kit from morona racing maybe? for close to $3,000 to get it to a 4.3L but that is NOT cost efficient at all.

$4,000 is not enough to make a unique supercharged ranger, there is plenty of people out there with supercharged rangers.

im assuming your truck is an automatic? (maybe i missed if it wasnt), that is going to affect your numbers and might be a growing problem as you get more and more power. if those are bigger than 31 inch tall tires, thats also going to rob some of your power.

im all for being unique, i wanted to put a m112 on my ranger..and i succeeded, but for WAY to much money and for WAY to little benefit. If i could do it again, i would buy a car that was meant to have a gob load of power

I'm in the same boat.

I bought an eaton M90 off a 92 t-bird supercoupe. I'm rebuilding it now and I've got a machine shop to build the adaptor plate. I know there's lots more to it... could you give me a brief step by step "how to" so I don't screw it up? I'm taking my time with this so I'm in no rush.

Any help would be appreciated.

Talk to Ron at banshee supercharger. He also sells an entire kit for an m90 to bolt on. It seems like you haven't done any research

I'd rather not buy the kit from ron. It seems like a great kit... but I plan to install an intercooler since the weather gets pretty hot here in the summer and I can't have a non-intercooled system. I'm 99% sure of what needs to be re-routed but tips would be nice (ie egr/vac tube/maf wire extension/fuel line/ etc etc).

I also have the 95 t-bird supercoupe's supercharger... not the 89-93 like ron's kits. I plan to re-build the snout next week... I also have an air-cooled intercooler and I plan to route the high pressure side through it so I don't get any overheating in 95degF+ weather.

Thought I might get a few tips before I rip into my truck. But if you have any points regarding the things that need to be "re-routed"... it would be a nice double check for me.

Thanks for the reply though... any tips are helpful.
