Supercharged??

Anyone here done it to their NA 5.4l V8? Looking to see what kits are available for the 2V tritons. Maybe a wrecked Lightning for parts?

Quite a few choices out there, cheapest way is to look for a wrecked Lightning/Harley/Roush or find a guy with a Lightning that has upgraded to a KB and weasel the used Eaton.
Or go brand new Roush/KB/Whipple, there are quite a few manufacturers.

- injectors (42lbs?)
- fuel pump
- lightning maf
- harmonic balancer
- lightning intake
- intercooler
- custom tune for the pcm
- blower belt
- gasket kit

im workin my way there... i have done bigger furl rails, bigger fuel injectors.. msd ingition, headers and full side exit exhaust. it alos has the diablo programmer...the problems i ahve experinced so far is i am still runnin outta fuel at the redline. gonna add an aftermarket fuel pump too help with the fuel delivery problem. if that works than i am pretty much ready for the charger. i dont believ in just boltin a charger onto a strock motor. if you want too achieve the full benefit of a charger or turbo there are issues tha need too be addressed. like fuel delivery, exhaust removal, timing, spark etc...

tell ya one thing i cant wait too install it. i'll most likely be going with the ford motorpsort one..

Im a bit curious about doing something like a harley swap in mine. But without being able to find much for wrecks ive pretty much ruled that out and im probably gonna go to a roush when i decide to take the next step. Although im thinking of just buying a weekend warrior to spend my money on and get my HP fix.
