Default supercharger question

I'm flirting with the idea of supercharging my v6 ranger. Is it possible to supercharge the 4.0 without upgrading the fuel system? If not, what will I need besides fuel pump, injectors, and the SC itself?

Any companies make a kit besides Eaton or BBK?

I dont think they have one available that far back

I have seen them on 2001-2003 trucks and one on a 2006 ranger

I know that one guy screwed his internals up cause it was boosting to high

Other mods to help would be a CAI and a tuner

If you find one and get a tuner your looking to spend 1-2K dollars

no one make a kit at this time. i have one in the works but is not moving as fast as we hoped. your fuel system should be upgraded to at least a larger pump and a FMU that will up the fuel pressure as the boost increases.
