Hey D, does a company or Eaton make a supercharger kit for Ford Ranger 4.0 SOHCs?


Just wondering, because I work for a construction machinery company, and I noticed boxes that say "eaton" on the side, and are conveniently superchargers. So I can probably order them at manufacturer's price.

But I don't think they make a kit..cept for the guy on RPS

Looks good!

Whatch that tranny though...




I have mine built to where I *could* supercharge it and be fine. You need a lot of work done on that tranny though It's a weak setup stock from my experience. Mine was going before I sunk it.

yellow rhino,
i like what your doing and if i had the money i would probly attempt something like this... however i think its too much work just to make our 3.0 a lil faster, personally, i am happy being the slowest truck on the road if im the biggest

I would strongly suggest having a local dyno do the programming with the vehical there. Doug at bama is great, he could write you something that works.. but it might not be ' great '. The only true way to make it all work is to do it right the first time.

The Explorer express kit uses an Eaton MP62 along with their manifolds and intake equipment.

Honestly.. the MP62 is too small a displacement for a SOHC engine. Even with a smaller pulley, which increases boost ( AND HEAT ), its not too efficient. Starting with an MP90 would be better IMO.
