After I replaced the torque converter, I went to Ford to flush my tranny fluid since it was dark and smelled badly.
While waiting, I took a walk around and saw some interesting stuff, including a 2009 Mustang with 4.6 3 valve v8 identical to the one I just pulled from my truck but with a supercharger. All kind of ideas starter running thru my head :) The supercharger is not much taller than the stock intake so the hood would clear, the intake tube could be custom built from the air box:

These are 2 pix of the 2009 with "Explorer" motor.

Yeah, I had forgotten about the fact that those years are the last of the V8 mustangs. That setup would drive the RSC system crazy on our vehicles, but sounds like a good time anyway.
 






I'm sure you already know Brenspeed sells supercharger kit for 4th gen V8 Explorers?
 






No, I had no idea, never really searched for that.
But at $ 7000 that' s expensive.
