dont quote me on this, but i believe you have been mis-informed. from what i remember, Doug094 (i think) was talking about this in another thread a while back. the Summit kit is not really a kit. you still have to have a machine shop make you an adaptor to mount the charger on the 4 liter intake. you also have to get them to make you an adaptor from the unit to the throttle body. from what he said, unless you actually work at a machine shop, you will wind up spending the same $$$ as if you purchased a new blower specifically for the 4.0.

They're right.

It is definately not a bolt-on affair and there are no kits to adapt that unit to the Explorer. The kits that Summit has are full kits that include the supercharger, intake, computer, the works. The BBK Eaton kit ends up being about $2800 just for parts.

Unless you work at or have access to a good machine shop, you can't just take any Eaton unit and bolt it on.

I own a Tbird Supercoupe and i do know that there are alot of differences between a regular 3.8 and one in a Supercharged Tbird, but anything can be done. check out this link it lists the differences in the motors and you can get alot of info in the rest of the site.

If doing a custom application, to make it work while, you will either need to use a Twin Screw compressor (ie Kenne Bell or Whipple) or integrate an intercooler into the system. Otherwise you will be limited to 6-7PSI boost unless you reduce your compression ratio with custom pistons. The eaton roots style compressor heats the intake charge too much, that past 6-7PSI, you will start to detonate.

Just my $0.02

tinner,,

the subject of this thread was to "mount a m-90 on a 4.0", not a 3.8.
