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

Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and

4 BT Cummins Powered 1998 Ford Explorer
This 1998 Ford Explorer belongs to a fellow co-worker, he liked my 4BT
Powered 71 Dodge, and thought he would like to do a similar conversion to
his. We took some measurements, and began sourcing parts. We started this
project around Christmas 2009, it was completed early January 2010.
Barry has driven his 4BT powered explorer now for 3 years, and has logged
over 100K miles since the conversion, averaging 30+ miles per gallon on
We custom fabricated our motor mounts, the A/C bracket, all transmission
lines, as well as the power steering lines. The Adapter plate, flywheel,
starter, and transmission were pulled from a wrecked Ram 250 pick up, we
also sourced the vacuum pump, and power steering pump.
We custom fabricated a turbo spacer to
lower the turbo charger to assist in
hooking up the exaust. We also custom fabricated the turbo charger lines to the intake, and the oil
drain back line.
All and all a successful home conversion, why can't we get something like
this from an auto manufacturer. Hope you enjoy the video!!!!!!
