i've been looking and pricing superchargers for awhile, and one thing came to mind. will these superchargers even fit my explorer. i have a 97 explorer 4.0L OHV engine. are the superchargers for the 4.0L for the OHV or the 4.0L SOHC?
No, the OHV 4.0 engine is completely different then the 4.0 SOHC engine. The superchargers or any part from a 4.0 SOHC or a 4.0 OHV are not interchangeable. I believe...Vortech makes a supercharger for the 4.0 OHV, but I can't confirm that. I could be wrong.
rob u are right on that....vortech does make a supercharger for the 4.0...i do believe their the only ones making one for that engine still....i know another company discontinued one...need more people to back me up on that
