BBK Instacharger on a 97 Explorer 4.0l OHV
Still running stock injectors, pressure regulator, fuel pump, and AFM.
next weekend I'll be installing the Lightning 90mm AFM, 42# injectors, Pressure regulator, Warbol 255 LPH furl pump, and a tune thanks to Henson Performance.
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
2003 Supercharged Ford Explorer Sport
This is my 2003 Explorer Sport with an M90 Eaton blower. Install kit from
RP Caster/Banshee Supercharger. 30 pound
injectors, K&N filter, Gibson Exhaust
and tune from Rouge Performance. Installation by Robs Performance in
Belleville NJ. Much firmer shift points, excellent throttle response.
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!
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!!!!!!
95 ranger 4.0 OHV supercharger
Preliminary run to see if it will actually run with it on there. Supercharger is a Eaton M90 out of a 97 grand prix
GTP. Still a long road ahead, engine seems to run lean and the adapter
plate needs to be milled because it is not flat.
