Default 4.0 OHV Rebuild Kit For Use W/ Super Charger?

I hav a 1994 4.0L OHV XLT Ranger w/ a lil over 128,000 miles on it, and someday when I get the money i'd like to run a Eaton M90 Super-Charger on it, I know I'll hav to rebuild the motor to handle the power of the super charger. Thus my question is would this rebuild kit from Rock Auto be "Heavy-Duty" enough to handle the Eaton M90's Power?

This Is the Rebuild Kit I'm looking at: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=213995

all except some forged pistons and some arp rod bolts and make sure you do your homework on compression ratio and boost levels you want!

well brother, it would almost be cheaper to swap out to a V8, you'd get more power and MPG's. your looking at getting around 300 HP with the super charger on there (of course depends on the amount of boost) but, a fine tuned 5.0 V8 will pull those same numbers. in the end just figure which one is cheaper.

Have a good one a good luck.

Plus 1 for a v8 swap....
(IMO) ohv 4.0 with an M90 would not be anywhere near as good as a 5.0 swap
