    For Sale 2.0" Drop Springs For 08-10 Sport Trac Adrenalin AWD

    Terminated the project. Have a customer that recently moved and their new driveway is to steep for their STA to be lower. He is selling them for $750.

    It's Finally Here: Gen 2 Calhoun Lowering Springs Group Buy! Don't Miss Out!

    There is a reason why people done just run around cutting their springs to lower their vehicles. I'd suggest hitting up google for about 15minutes before making a post like the above. Other than the fact that you have just removed inches and left the rate the same and now have less spring at...

    It's Finally Here: Gen 2 Calhoun Lowering Springs Group Buy! Don't Miss Out!

    5.0 Coyote Adrenalin engine swap

    I would love to do a manual tran swap. I'm not big on the 5.0 versus a forced induction 4.6L already sitting in there. I HATE the transmission shifting in my supercharged STA. I would pay $4000 to rip the 6R80 out and put in a manual.

    Update on 08-10 STA Drop Springs.

    That is an excellent question. I have no idea if the dampers are the same for FWD and AWD. I know the springs are slightly different. I can tell you that if you put my AWD springs on a RWD, the drop is half what it is on an AWD. I can only assume that the dampers are the same for both...

    Update on 08-10 STA Drop Springs.

    Front: 475#/in Rear: 310/400/in The springs I have made now are setup for an AWD so I don't think you wil get the full drop benifit with your RWD. In the process of doing up a RWD 2.0" drop now.

    Update on 08-10 STA Drop Springs.

    I can look up the exact rate but they are engineered to be 15% stiffer. I was not planning on publishing all the stats. I consider all of this propriatary information.

    For Sale 2.0" Drop Springs For 08-10 Sport Trac Adrenalin AWD

    Nope, just the production prototype for the 2" drop 15% stiffer than oem for an AWD v8. I hope to have more in the spring but I'm funding this personally. My pricing is also very aggressive so I make a few and sell a few. If have have new versions made, it's out of my pocket. It will...

    For Sale 2.0" Drop Springs For 08-10 Sport Trac Adrenalin AWD

    I'm not becoming a vendor. This is one set. In the spring I'll just use my own build to order site. Last I knew, didn't need to become a vendor for one off prototype parts. This site likes money eh?

    For Sale 2.0" Drop Springs For 08-10 Sport Trac Adrenalin AWD

    This is the production prototype I'm selling. Im doing this out of pocket so I'm selling sets as I go. In the spring, when business picks up, I'll built several sets exactly Like this one.

    Update on 08-10 STA Drop Springs.

    I have been slowly getting some drop springs ready for production for RWD and AWD Sport Tracs. I've done a 1.5" and a 2.0" for AWD only so far. This is a pretty damn expensive project and I'd like to sell some of the prototypes as I'm putting the project on hold until spring...

    For Sale 2.0" Drop Springs For 08-10 Sport Trac Adrenalin AWD

    These are an extra set of springs I had made for my prototype testing process. These are based on my 1.5" drop springs that have perfect fitment. These have never been tested. The are OEM Spec less 2" and 15% stiffer. They are $685 shipped. I will not accept less. You will not...

    Solved Exploring Forced Induction: The Fluid MotorUnion Ford Explorer Turbo Build Thread!

    Well...a stock STA does the 1/4 in 15.9 and supercharged ones do it around 13.5-13.6, with about 86whp more than this TT4.6. They also have a 6R80 but the trans tuning is dog **** do that is where this thing would have a snowballs chance in beating it. Because of my monkey turd trans, even...

    Solved Exploring Forced Induction: The Fluid MotorUnion Ford Explorer Turbo Build Thread!

    Isn't that a 4.6L modular V8? 3 valve? That's decent power. I don't think you're really pushing it until you're closer to 450rwhp. I think it looks amazing and the quality of your work is some of the best I've ever scene. I also think that your rolling blog with every detail is amazing in...

    Solved Exploring Forced Induction: The Fluid MotorUnion Ford Explorer Turbo Build Thread!

    Probably right. I don't think the stock bottom end on a 4700 pound vehicle can handle more than that range. Especially if it has a 6r80 with no trans tuning or valve body work. Mine makes 400 to the rollers at 5psi so his should be higher...until it dies!

    amazing work. Any idea how much it's going to put down? I'm betting 10psi 390-400rwhp.

    Supercharger for a 4.0 V6 Adrenalin

    I traded them my 1999 SVT F150 Lightning with 175,000 miles on it for the conversion. I had a little bit over $6000 tied up in the Lightning. All I had to pay for was the extra stuff. So I sold all the naturally aspirated mods and got the money for all the other stuff I needed. I basically had...

    Wanted - Adrenalin AWD V8 - Loaded/Low Mileage

    I'd sell mine. It would be sold well over book value though. Unlike most Adrenalins, mine isn't just a pretty face.

    Supercharger for a 4.0 V6 Adrenalin

    It would be more cost effective to go buy a 03-04 Cobra powertrain and stick it in there. You could also consider Stylin99's 5.0L swap if money is no object! If you already have a V8...OMG...supercharge it! Best thing I ever did.

    Finally Complete: Saleen VI.5 Supercharged 2010 Sport Trac Adrenalin V8 AWD

    No trans, diff, transfer case or any problems with the existing powertrain due to the supercharger. It doesn't shift really fast but...it never did. I've had some issues with intercooler leaks because the hose clamps have become a little loose here and there. I monitor everything and all my...

    Finally Complete: Saleen VI.5 Supercharged 2010 Sport Trac Adrenalin V8 AWD

    I drive mostly 60mph with a ton of traffic on the highway. Many intersections where people turn off so there is a lot of slow down and speed up. It's also a steep grade uphill one way. Then of course it's 15-20min of city traffic to get to the dealership. I do that every day. I find it...

    Finally Complete: Saleen VI.5 Supercharged 2010 Sport Trac Adrenalin V8 AWD

    About 1.5-2mpg less than normal unless I get in it a little more and then it's basically the same. I find it gets worse fuel economy if I baby it. So like 14-15 avg mostly city.

    Market Research: Affordable 07+ Sport Trac, 06+ Explorer & Mountaineer Lowering Kit

    Also, they will fit other Explorers but the OEM spring part numbers are not the same as the ST. Thus, they will not feel the same.

    Market Research: Affordable 07+ Sport Trac, 06+ Explorer & Mountaineer Lowering Kit

    So far I have a 1.5" drop prototype being tested. The net drop after install was 0" so we're waiting for it to settle. It should settle to 1.5" drop as the spring rate is the same as OEM and the spring is 1.5" shorter than OEM. Until this is done I will not be selling them. Probably will not...

    Prototype Testing Deal: 1 set of 1.5 Drop Springs: Gen2 ST

    I'd really like to get more than just one set out in testing. I feel it's important to allow the community to judge the product aside from just myself. If anyone is interested. I will have a brand new, extra, set of prototype springs, in addition to the set I will be running. I will be...

    400hp Supercharged

    So mine makes 400rwhp at 5psi on 93 octane. The kit is about $8000.00 Can make more but the transmission would need a built valve body and you would need an upgraded fuel pump and or a Kenne Bell Boost-A-Pump. There is a guy with a tiny M90 supercharged STA. He makes 450rwhp on 9psi...

    Market Research: Affordable 07+ Sport Trac, 06+ Explorer & Mountaineer Lowering Kit

    I want a decent amount of time to test them so it will probably be at least a month before I start selling them. They will be under $700. Probably $650 or $600 with a group buy of 10-15 or more.

    Market Research: Affordable 07+ Sport Trac, 06+ Explorer & Mountaineer Lowering Kit

    Since you have a 2008, that may be a factor better addressed with an upgrade to a 2010 sway bar. They are better than the 2008 sway bar.

    Market Research: Affordable 07+ Sport Trac, 06+ Explorer & Mountaineer Lowering Kit

    I don't know how much yet. Probably around $650 or less depending on finishing costs. Right now we are testing load and drop lengths. It will fit any 06+ IRS explorer. If you're not sure, get the part numbers of your current springs and match them against the spring part numbers for 07+...

    Market Research: 07+ Sport Trac, 06+ Explorer & Mountaineer 52mm Gauge Pod

    The biggest problem with that location is visibility. The gauges are much harder to see and there is more to remove in order to install. I've tried both locations and the pillar is pretty decent. The other big issue is light washout in that spot. There is none on the pillar for a dual pod...
