Stock 1/4 mile and 0-60 times for a TON of cars!!! ^_^ Well, not all of them... But alot ;) OK this is just something i thought yall would find interesting. This is not my list and i do not take credit for it. List is by Mario777 of CarForums.net Zero to 60 & 1/4 Miles Times This collection of 0-60 and 1/4 mile times has been accumulated from many different sources over the past few years. These sources include vehicle testing done by "the experts" at Car & Driver, Motor Trend, Road & Track, various written auto publications and from the auto manufacturers themselves. The list below provides "factory stock" road test figures for most of the Makes & Models of "production" vehicles that are available in the United States...
http://www.supersixmotorsports.com/ How does a 300HP naturally aspirated SOHC sound... it's supposed to be good for 650HP with NOS or SC:D For the OHV motors they have ported and polished heads and intakes available. :burnout: Here's another 4.0 Resource: http://www.moranav6racing.com/
This is going to be a big stumbling block for a few people The stock balance for a 5.0 explorer engine is 50z in A stroker engine will require a 28 oz in balance-- so a flexplate and harmonic balancer switch is needed. The flexplates are out there, but the explorer Harmonic balancer-pulley-dis trigger is all one unique unit for explorers-- When I purchased my stroker kit from Coast High-they found me one I assure you. However, even with my receipt ( no part number) they have no idea what I am referring to-- My thoughts--can material be removed from the stock balancer ( by machine shop of course) to work with the new balance weight? Also-for thought--the 96-98 mustang pulley looks awful close--- I might add, my...
Torque Monster Headers Install Write-up and Review

I recently installed my AirMax CAI on my Merc. I have been enjoying the increased throttle response, driveablity and fuel mileage the last few weeks. Even though it is a relatively simple job, I thought I'd take several pictures of the install process. Step by step: You should begin with something looking like this: Loosen the hose clamps at the throttle body and MAF Remove the hose that connects to the oil fill neck that is on the top of the intake tube It is a barb type fitting, wiggle it back and forth to remove. With the hose removed, the intake hose/tube can be removed. It make take some wiggling to get off the throttle body and MAF The MAF is attached to the air box by 4 coarse thread bolts. A 10mm wrench...
After getting an estimate on how much it would run me to fix up my Xploder with all new exhaust, cold side piping, and a bunch of other stuff done up the "right" way... I've decided to convert my Xploder back to NA form so that I can actually ENJOY the truck before I die of old age. Anyways... To start it off I ordered up a MAC cold air intake (I do not have the stock intake) and sold my FMS headers on ebay. I plan on buying a set of torque monster headers in the next week or so but am still up in the air on how I should run my exhaust from a performance "speed" perspective. I do not plan on doing much, if any, off road driving, so am looking for a setup that improves take off and speed for spirited pavement driving that sounds...
I've been around the forum and haven't seen it anywhere. Does anybody know where I can find all of the torque specifications for the explorer 5.0? I need... Lower intake bolts Upper intake bolts Elbow to upper intake bolts Throttle body to elbow bolts Coolant elbow to lower intake bolts Timing Cover bolts Water pump bolts Valve cover bolts Oil Pan bolts Oil pump bolts Oil cooler mount bolt I have a Haynes manual and it has none of these in it that I can find.
I posted this on the explorer side and realized that there aren't any Ranger guys chiming in... so I decided to post it here too for all my fellow Ranger drivers :) So here it is... the most complete HOW TO for supercharging your 4.0L Ranger! If you obtain a Moddbox Installation kit and any Eaton M90 supercharger (89-95 either style inlet... you can opt to buy one with warranty in the kit), just follow the following instructions and you're good to go. No tune required. 100% bolt-on mod. You can get your installation kit here: ModdBox - Engineering your driving experience I've also decided to post the "final result" first. If you like it.. proceed to read the "how to". Here's the Dyno. 215 hp & 237 lbft at the rear wheels...
so i bet one of my buddys the other day that i could get my 98 xlt 4.0 sohc to put out 300 hp without many crazy mods. im kinda doubting myself considering its probably lost some ponies over the years but i thought it be interesting to see if it can be done without a turbo or supercharger. im gunna do some of the basics, intake, exhaust, throttle body, and all the other little things. i already have flowmaster super 44's and a kkm intake but im thinking about swapping them out for a k&n and other mufflers, im wondering what muffler and cats would be best. im also changing my gears to 4:10s but im not sure if that actually adds hp. any other ideas im thinking about putting some jba headers on but ive heard they dont do much for the 4.0s.
As the topic. It's based upon a 93:ish 4.0 bottom end and the rest of the bits are from a 2.9i 24v BOB cosworth. Just missing a few bits to be able to put it all togehter. But here are a few old pics from how a few bits fit together.
I'm abandoning my old thread (My new 347), as the motor has been an epic fail for many reasons. Against any sane reason, I'm trying again. Post #1 is a thread with all parts for my own records. I'll keep adding to this as I have the time and know what parts are being used. New (Used) unmolested factory block from Vroomzoomboom. Thanks Tim!

[Edits to follow - work in progress] Where to find the 4.0L SOHC: 1997-2010 Ford Explorer/Mercury Mountaineer 2001-2010 Ford Sport Trac 2001-2010 Mazda B4000 2001-2011 Ford Ranger 2005-2009 Land Rover LR3 2005-2010 Ford Mustang 2006-2010 Ford Sport Trac For us, this story begins in 1997 with the first of the 4.0L SOHC engines being sold in the Explorers. Ford used a "Rocker Arm" part number F77Z-6564-AB in the first of the SOHC engines (1997-1998ish), which was very similar to the follower used in the 4.6/5.4L 2v and 4v motors, but with no oiling hole. Original 4.0L SOHC "Rocker Arms" (cam follower) This is the oiler feed line [part 6578 above] and this is an indicator of an early 4.0L SOHC (1997-2007ish). These engines have...
I haven't been able to find anyone that manufactures this spacer for my 2001 Ford Explorer sport 4.0 SOHC. If you know of one then please let me know. If not, i'm planning on building myself. I've found a couple of suppliers for the material. Please let me know if you've found any suppliers that carry 1" thick G11 phenolic. Or, if there's a better grade, then let me know that.
This is my work in progress thread to my 1977 F150. I purchased the truck as a stock 2wd swaped 351w / C6 truck with a 2.72 9" rear end. The minute I bought the truck I knew I was going to swap it to EFI but it needs to be done affordable as this is going to be my run around the shop work truck. I also know overdrive is about necessary these days so that needs to be in my upgrades to gain more power and fuel economy. This truck will be a daily driver so no antique tags for it. It will need a Virginia state inspection when complete(no smog here). Here is the plan: Engine: 351w roller block, Explorer GT40 heads (.5" head bolt holes) Intake: Knock off PP 351w mustang intake Fuel system: Mid 90s F150 factory rear tank setup. Ignition...
Hey! (Yes I’m aware there has been plenty of posts like this.) I have a few questions I’d like to spit out however. I want to turbo my 4.0 V6 SOHC. It’s a brand new engine. New tranny as well, so it’s almost asking for a boost. I don’t really want to go remote or rear-mounted. has anybody ever fabricated a header for there 4.0s? Or used a crossover? I’m interested to hear how everyone has turbod their x’s and how they did it. Any recommendations for me? Thank you!
Parts and Info for my Turbocharged 4.0 from my thread http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=426937 This list is the basic parts (major items) I used to end up with a turbocharged 4.0 OHV. I hoped this could help consolidate information from the thread and from the research I've done to this point. This setup has resulted in great drivability allowing me to keep up with modern traffic. Boost comes on fast if you want to get on the go pedal but it also allows you to cruise out of boost at around stoich or slightly leaner programmed/tuned appropriately to do so. This set up would allow you to run 7 pounds on a daily driver, to this point in time, safely and reliably and I can pass obd2 emissions testing. Smaller...
I only made it to about 95 before I had to shut her down but there seemed to be alot of room left. Anyone break 110?? MR XLT
Does anybody ever done such a thing? I'm wondering if the stock ECM will handle like 4 o 5 psi of boost without any mods? I live at the Andes mountains, at 6.600 feet of altitude and the atmospheric pressure here is around 9 psi, so I figure if I add 4 or 5 psi of turbo boost the explorer migh perform like if it was at sea level..?? what if I go down to sea level..?? the 4.0 SOHC uses a MAF sensor, so the increase of airflow under boost will make the ECM dump more fuel... or not..?? up to a certain point I'm sure, since definitely the air/fuel mixture is correct at this altitude as well as down at the coastline, in other words, can the ECM be fooled to make it think it's working at sea level..?? thanks.
