1st Time Supercharging

Last time at the track I started having a head gasket issue, blowing coolant out the overflow on the track. 95 GT 5.0 with AODE. Since I have to tear down the engine anyways, I have been looking for an inexpensive way to supercharge it. Using an Eaton off of an 03-04 Cobra and making adapters to mount it on my 5.0 seems like the lowest cost way to go. I am a machinist by trade so getting it to bolt on and set up is no worry but I do have a few other questions.

1. I currently have 30lb injectors. Will they be enough? It is still a stock block/lower end so I am only planning to use 6-8 psi boost.

2. Will my 75mm throttle body work/be enough?

3. I have a 195lph fuel pump, is that enough?

4. I am switching to ARP head studs and I already have a set of Fel-Pro Perma-Torque MLS gaskets # , good enough?

5. The blower has a built in by-pass with a vacuum operated actuator, what is the proper way to hook it up?

The blower will be here this week and I plan to start right away on making the adapters needed. I hope to be running by April 20th. Thanks for any help!

In 302 you have no room for intercooler, so you lose some power. 112 is made that way it is very difficult to build intercooler outside.
I had 30 lbs injectors in my old 302 Cobra, and it made 275 rwhp, and injectors were near the limit. I suggest 300 lph pump and bigger injectors, Late Tbird SC has 36 lbs, but it wont harm if you get decent biggers.
Stock studs are enough with mls-gaskets. Bypass is controlled by vacuum after throttle.
75 Tb is good.

I build 4.6 32 valve + 112 for my Cobra, I'll install 340lph pump and I have 54 lbs GT500 injectors for it.

First, sell that blower you get and buy a pro charger or a vortech. I wouldn’t bother with all that work for just 6-8lbs of boost. But hey that’s me. I think you’d be better off.
I’d also get some 60lb injectors at least. You don’t want to play with fuel. My last 2 cars were stock blocks pushing 14-17lbs boost and 500-575rwhp. So don’t worry about breaking your block.

Stock block 306, V1 T-trim, AFM B-451 cam, TFS Twisted Wedge, Holley Systemax, A1000, Snow Meth, TKO 600, Team Z, Strange, MM, Lakewood and Moser helps me go forward fast.

1. I currently have 30lb injectors. Will they be enough? It is still a stock block/lower end so I am only planning to use 6-8 psi boost.depends on if you use a fmu or not.

2. Will my 75mm throttle body work/be enough? yup

3. I have a 195lph fuel pump, is that enough?imo, not really but it could work if you cant spring for a $100 255lph

4. I am switching to ARP head studs and I already have a set of Fel-Pro Perma-Torque MLS gaskets # , good enough?studs are over kill but i like overkill.

5. The blower has a built in by-pass with a vacuum operated actuator, what is the proper way to hook it up?not sure, but i'd wager you need it to see boost and vac probably from the intake manifold

The blower will be here this week and I plan to start right away on making the adapters needed. I hope to be running by April 20th. Thanks for any help!
Good luck!A new V3 SCI will get you what you want for under $3k and be a whole lot easier, just saying.

Will it help that much

I just bought a neglected 62,000 mile 05 GT with a V2 Vortect Procharger on it. The engine is locked and I imagine a broken crank from running too much boost on a stick 4.6. Not knowing what for sure happened and if the cylinder walls may have been damaged or even a head and not having anyone including a Hotrod shop that wanted to pull my engine out because they all say there are too many connections and too complicated but they are putting GM LS engines in everything that moves. I probably made a big mistake but I bought a running barely 4.6 Police Interceptor Engine out of a 08 Crown Vic Police Car. I have an engine builder who is a legend and has been building High Performance Engines for almost 50 years, How much potential HP have I given up going from a three valve engine to a two valve engine? The plan is forged crank and rods, High Compression Pistons, as hot of cam as can be run on the street and ran wide open on a 1 mile track. Are the PI Heads any good and donít you have to use them in conjunction with the factory intake or can you use an aftermarket intake. Any chance of getting 350-375 HP out of this engine?

Probably want to start your own thread. Not polite to steal another’s. You’ll get more help if you start your own.

if you can build it cheap, i would do it. You may even make a little money off of it if you decide to sell it.


If you stay around 300ish hp mark, those parts may actually work. I would probably stay closer to 6lbs of boost.

The gaskets and studs are probably overkill. If the heads can come off of studs without hitting the brake booster, I may go ahead and do it. As for the gasket, I used a 9111 felpro and had great success. Lots of other members have as well.

I would want a tuning chip to use with it.

But why go through all that for 300hp? That’s a good amount of work for just 6lbs boost and only 300hp.....but of course to each their own. Respectfully.

I know about the intercooler issue. I plan to mill off the intercooler mounting flange so I can keep my adapter plate thinner and the blower closer to the engine.
Are you sure they weren't 24s? I can't remember what my tuner told me but it was a lot more than 275whp you could get with 30lb injectors

Thanks for your replies and answers. You guys have deeper pockets than I do. I will be way under 1k with this set up then will only need it tuned which the car needs anyways. I would really like to put a 6-71 on it with an Enderle Birdcatcher with EFI but I don't know how to get it to work with the 95's computer besides not being able to afford it.

@SNK VNM Hwat does the FMU do and why does it make a difference on injector size? Right now, no I do not have one and was told I did not need one,just a good tuner.

Where are guys coming up with 300hp? My engine is already at 300whp now. For me this is the cheapest way I see to go. All of the materials and fab work cost me $0 + time. The blower was $475(only 50 miles on it), I will have to buy a belt, crank pulley and tensioner plus what we deem absolutely necessary here.

I assumed since you are not up front about what you have. I am one of the ones that is not a mind reader.

to answer your question, no. #30s will not be a enough. You could raise the fuel pressure and go past the recommended duty cycle to get more out of them. Here is a general formula you can follow:

300 (HP) x 0.5 (BSFC) / 8 (Number of injectors) x 0.85 (duty cycle)

your bsfc will be around .65, since you are supercharging it.

I swapped Tbird SC injectors to my 302 Cobra, originally it had 24lbs. It shouldn't effect power, but I got better drivability with those, more torque.

My 300hp comment was directed towards TrimDrip. Telling you to keep it at the 300hp mark. Not sure who would boost an engine, just to keep it at 300hp...
given that you already have everything and you can fab whatever needed, I’d absolutely go for it. Especially if you’re ok with the results. 6-8lbs boost isn’t going to do a whole lot, but it will 100% do something for you!
A FMU helps supplement undersized injectors, basically. I refer to it as a band-aid fix. The proper way to do it, is buy bigger injectors and ditch the FMU. Buy 60lb injectors. Boost is addicting, so keep in mind, that 6-8lbs boost isn’t gonna be enough for you and you’ll want more. You’ll see!! Boost is awesome

I agree, it is a lot of work. For everyone else, it is a lot of money. But, people used to put entry level superchargers on their cars all of the time.

All things aside, I think it’s an awesome idea. It’s different. As long as the OP understands what he’s getting, then it’s all good. It looks and sounds pretty good, I’ll admit.

My bad, I should have stated what I have for a set up now and where I would like to be with this blower on it.
I didn't get to dyno the current set up before developing a head gasket issue (caused by a stuck thermostat/overheating). Based on the previous set up and the changes made, it should be just north of the 300whp mark. I was thinking this should get me over the 400 mark. My lower boost number is because I AM worried about the block since so many say it is weak.

As a 30 year toolmaker/machinist, I don't see this as a lot of work. Fairly quick and simple actually compared to many parts I make. I am even considering making my own low-profile distributor since I can't find any available on the market.

So my main extra upgrades I need are bigger injectors and possibly a larger fuel pump. Thanks for the info, I will post some updates as I make progress on this project so be sure to look if this thread pops to the top again in the next couple of months.

FMU spikes the fuel pressure when in boost by a ratio you can set up using different disks in the fmu housing. It's definitely a band-aid but they do work. Here's a link with more info from vortech, https://vortechsuperchargers.com/pro...ant=7812902593

It’s absolutely attainable, but don’t be afraid if you make more power. That stock block should hold up fine. Just don’t scream her to 7,000rpm all the time. For you, it’s absolutely worth doing and I can’t wait to see it! And hear it.
100% ditch the FMU and buy Siemens Deka 60lb injectors and a fuel system/pump to match. Injectors/fuel system is not an area to be messing around. Will definitely be following!

SC or TC with no intercooler or after cooler is a waste. Whatever you gain will be lost in retarded timing, etc.

Hey guys just wanted to give a little update. I am still doing this project but it's been slower going than anticipated due to high work load at the shop. There is a little progress though..

First after receiving the supercharger, I took some measurements and started with the easiest part to make, a flange to bolt the throttle body plumbing to the main unit. Just a simple flat piece of 6061 aluminum 1/2" thick milled to shape of the supercharger inlet with bolt pattern to match.

Then I found a larger round piece(5 1/2") also 6061 to make the conical oval-to-round tube adapter. Since I use pieces out of our scrap bin, I had to start on a mill and mill the the big end offset to clear previous work on the material. Then to the lathe to machine the outside cone and bore the ID. And then back to the mill again for some work there. I was going to weld the flange on but I could see enough room that I went bolt-on instead. From there I decided to use a C&L cast tube from a Foxbody CAI set sup. I count it as $0 cost for this project because I already had it on hand from a previous project that I ended up not using it on. It did cost $85 originally so if you want to copy my setup you can add that cost. I simply milled the end to fit the turned cone adapter.

I have drawn up the adapter plate to intake and the throttle body adapter flange also drawn up. And I have materials set aside for them but that is really all that I have done at this time. I haven't measured the width on the engine and may need to add a spacer between the tube and the cone so the throttle body/maf housing and air filter clear the oil filler tube on the valve cover. No big deal but won't know until I can start taking the motor apart to check fit.

I'll update again as I can make more progress on this project.

being a machinist, you could have come up with a air/water intercooler setup

that being said, have you got the tuning lined up?

starting and idling and drivability will affected negatively.

That's a good start, adapting materials you have access to now.


I'd add an intercooler, underneath it. You have the experience with metal working, find a lower cost carb style intake, and gut it all the way down to the belly pan. There's a member on the Explorer forum who has just done that, and is now working on the blower outer parts. So he has the intake/IC plenum done, and the blower fits, which would be tight in Mustang. AN IC of over 100ci and approaching 150ci would do wonders for power/tuning, for IAT temps.


Rough tuning like an FMU gets is a recipe to crack a stock block. If you tune it properly with the computer, the stock block should survive 500hp reliably, keeping the rpm's reasonable. For a positive displacement blower, the power range is from the bottom up, so I'd shift it near stock levels, 5k or so depending on airflow of heads etc.


Running 6-8psi will work okay for a mild engine and no IC, if you adapt an IC, then 10psi will be no trouble.

You should go with water injection or add extra injectors preblower to cool the boost.

I ran an M112 on a 306 for a number of years. The thing was a consistent mid 10's car at 127 mph. The blower was maxed out though. The youtube video that's posted above was another guy's design that had multiple failures of the extended snout. Pizano never got his done (that I know of). The Lightning M112 is difficult to package on a pushrod motor (without it being 10 feet tall). But it's doable, I suppose.

This is an interior view of a 10.57 pass of my car with the 306/M112 combo:

I had a big massive thread on the M112 install on the corral. BTW - I used a Jaguar M112 that was given to me by an engineer at Eaton.

Here's the thread:
https://forums.corral.net/forums/5-0...-ltd-pics.html

Unfortunately, though the pictures are all still up on the server, the dolts who took over the Corral have blocked private servers from hosting photos. I emailed them about it and they didn't respond.

FWIW - a 75mm TB will be a restriction on that blower. Try to get a stock Cobra ('03-'04) TB.

Figured I would chime in as well, I currently have an M112 from a Jag as well. Mine is ported inlet and outlet water methonal injected and I tune Megasquirt ECU as a "second job" so no issues with the tuning at all. drivability with a custom bumpstick was/is amazing. My full build thread is over on stangnet. I mounted mine much differently and it will fit under the stock hood very easily.
You will want to use a b&m blower manifold and make an adapter plate to keep the blower mounted low, convert to EDIS or CNP ignition allows you to use a cam sensor from the explorer to drive the oil pump. if you are really hard up for space next to the blower to fit the fuel injectors you could try and utilize a GM fuel spider setup.. add the extra fuel ahead of the blower with an extra injector or even a standalone system such as one used on a nitrous setup.
many ways to get it done.

Holy macaroni of a tight package that is a91what!
One could (almost) think it's stock.

That looks good!

Thank you very much, I spent alot of time making sure it was done "right". I wanted a custom blower setup without it looking like some kind of monstrosity that required hacking to make fit.
-homebuilt Megasquirt ECU with many modifications
-watermethonal injection is pieced together, pwm controlled from the megasquirt
-LU47 FRPP injectors and walboro 250lph pump bbk fuel rails
-ported gt40irons with 7/16studs and 1.6RR
-306CID with DSS 4032 flat top pistons with total seal gapless rings 10:1 comp
-Wasted spark coil pack ignition utilizing the plentiful edis coils
-Full exhaust with cats
-Jaguar Eaton M112 gen5 blower ported, on a B&M intake with a homemade adapter plate.
-fabbed up blower inlet as well.
-minicooper bypass valve - vacuum actuated
-passenger side front dress is homemade out of 1/2" aluminum bar stock to fit extra pulleys
- DD-EFI digital dash for Megasquirt this is the only thing i did not make myself
I know i am forgetting some stuff....

Yes guys I know I could have made an IC work under the blower but 2 things turned me away from it. 1 - I really wanted to keep the set up low and under the hood and 2- I planned to stay as inexpensive as possible. That set up @a91what is what I originally wanted to do. For tuning, I was planning to get the set up built then take to a local shop for dyno tuning.

A couple of things have changed now. My son is arguing he wants to have the blower stick out of the hood, LOL so I have been rethinking the set up. But worse, the trans in the car is about to go. ON the good side I have come up with more funds to throw at the car and I found an great deal on direct fit AEM stand alone engine management system. It will take longer to see the final set up for the supercharger but the plan now is this:

1. The engine and trans are coming out of the car to make all the necessary repairs.
2. Get them back in the car and spend some time learning to tune with AEM
3. Finish up the supercharging project. If all goes well, I will sell this supercharger and use a different unit. Still not planning an inter-cooler but it will have the injectors pre-blower.

I hope I can make what's in my head work. I will working on it while trying get the motor/trans back to good. Details to come as progress gets made.

it did indeed run and split the block. (as of a year ago) a dart build is in the works

^that is what the owner of this video posted in the comments

No degree here, I am an electrician by trade. I am also an EPRI tech so I know my way around a schematic, the MegaSquirt is a DIY based ECU. I currently have 2 ECU in one case I maxed the I/O out on the first so i used a Tinyxio from JBperf to give me more options, otherwise i would have had to upgrade to a MS3x to do what i needed it to.
