Default Re: Supercharge your 3.0 Vulcan for cheap

Hey guys its been a while since my last post. Havenít had a whole lot of time since then with school but some personal issues arose and in order to solve them I had to drop physics for the first half of the summer which gives me now some free time until summer term 2 starts up. Regardless, I was able to talk to a local machinist I went to once before, he owns a custom shop and specializes in cars, he didnít have much to say for the design except that I could combine three of my pieces into one without increases the cost of milling it out. He told me it will be about 600$, but will allow me to mill out as many stencils of certain aspects of the part to physically double check clearances and measurements! Which is great news! This allows me to really fine tune a lot of clearances which will remove a lot of variables. Essentially the intake spacer, base plate, and cavity plate will all be one piece (as seen highlighted in the picture). Iím going to close up the tolerances on the bolt holes for the ďintake spacerĒ ensuring the whole assembly is solid, and I will see how much I can lower the height of the intake spacer to allow more clearance for the total height of the supercharger and intake.

I know I might have mentioned, or at least considered to myself, some kind of cooling system, personally I donít see that happening as there is just not enough room to fit some form of intercooling system. However, a meth/water injection seems like the way to go and is what I will be installing for this project. A bit pricey for a pump and controller at around 400-500$ but I think the added safety to prevent detonation is worth it. Especially anything over 5 or so psi.

Bad news is the mastercam free edition doesnít allow any post processing nor allow me to save my files as anything but mastercam home edition files So he introduced me to this really neat CAD software called ViaCAD, he says he uses it more than solidworks, and to be honest I was impressed! In some ways its more powerful than mastercams design tools. The program costs only about 70$ and allows me to save in almost ANY file possible! I wish I had known about this earlier. So it looks like I will be copying down the blueprints onto this new software and sending some stencils to mill out and check my measurements physically. Im not sure how long this will take but Iíll keep you guys posted as best I can, and sorry if this thread is slow, im trying my best to get this done when I have time!

Somewhat related to the actual supercharger I was able to get in a walbro 255 lph fuel pump the other day, it was branded as a "High Flow Performance" product but im pretty sure its all from the same source, looks just like a chinese walbro. Either way works well so far

Whipple did make a supercharged 3.0 many many years ago. Hell, when I first got my 02 you could still buy it brand new from whipple (that shows my age lol). They didnt run much boost (5-6psi IIRC) and didnt make any more power than a stock 4.0 sohc.

want some actual advice?

if you want to make it as fast as you say, you should consider intercooling it. Since you are running the m90 off of a 3.8, they do make one for it.

Thank you for the advice, I was trying to figure something like that out but there's just not enough room for the intake, I would need to cut into the hood. I'm purchasing a water/meth injection as a substitute

it doesn't tell you how thick it is though.

nice, I'd have to check with them because I'm already maxing out the clearance for the pulley to the hood, if it's under 1" thickness it's possible to incorporate it into the manifold design

maybe run a 01-03 4x4 or edge hood. I seem to remember the powerdome hood having a bit more clearance.

if that's true that could be a possibility, I'll have to check whenever I'm at the junkyard

The 04+ Rangers also have power domes, and from experience do have a noticeable amount of extra space

The true and more pronounced "powerdomes" were a 01-03 thing.
