Supercharged Explorer Dyno
Hi, This is a quick Vid of my explorer on the Dyno, Unfortunately it kept
shifting early at 4500 rpm even with the overdrive off, Will post another
vid as soon as I get the sct software to hold the gear & tune it to shift
at 5500. So far at 4400 rpm its making 280 rwhp & 341 RWTQ. Here's a chart
comparing old set up with 4-4.5 psi (Blue Line) to new setup 7-8 psi (Red
line) . Notice at 3400 rpm with the new pulley its making 50 RWHP more all
the way till it finished at 4400

Fluid MotorUnion Dyno Tunes Scott's Twin-Turbo Explorer
The following video has been created to showcase the new sound and fury
behind what started out as a stock 2006 Ford Explorer with the 4.6L Modular
V8 motor. What started as an idea for a rear-mount turbo kit turned into an in-bay, twin-turbo setup that carved new pathways for those
looking for forced induction solutions on the Explorer. As it hadn't been
done before, there was a great amount of research and design effort that
went into this build, and we're happy that the tuning is basically finished
at this point. A few small hiccups sprouted up along the way, but we
remained determined to knock those gremlins out, which we eventually did.
From there, all it was was a matter of refining the tune to get everything
where we wanted it. The second the car was making the sound and power we
wanted, we grabbed the Handycam, and this is the result.
Final power numbers are right around 314 all wheel horsepower, which is 6 under
the awhp rating for a Lamborghini Gallardo. Not too shabby for an
automatic transmission and a composite intake manifold. You may notice the
power is a bit under the 400 awhp rating; we kept the tune a bit more mild,
as it's a daily driver and he wasn't in a hunt for the maximum allowable
power. And for those of you who noticed that only the rear wheels are
moving even though it's all-wheel drive, our Dyno Dynamics Dyno was not working well with
the Explorer's AWD system, so we ran it through the rear. Even though the
front wheels are disconnected, the engine's power still goes through the
transfer case, so the loss is closer to an AWD car than a RWD car, hence
our description of 'awhp.' Enjoy the video and the corresponding Dyno graph, which we've included
a link to below!
