I have the Spark with seperate coils ontop of each spark plug,they are all located in the intake side of the Heads instead of the exaust side of the Heads.
So how would a supercharger fit on??

One way is to do a lightning swap so it looks like this..... and it's a cop (coil over plug) not a cod its in the head not the intake.

Okay you meant COP (coil on plug) and it makes no difference that you have individual coils, you can still install pretty much any supercharger kit out there on your vehicle. For an expedition I would definately do a lightning swap for the lowend power.

I put a customer supplied Kenne Bell twin screw kit on a 2000 HD F150 and it worked pretty good, the customer just wanted to be able to spin the tires and that it did. it was an easy install, less than a day.

You can't just bolt up a kenne bell to your motor, I don't think they make a kit for your truck. The only kenne bell that I know of for our trucks is an upgrade kit for the lightnings and harleys to replace the Eaton M112. The Eaton blower is a 1.8L blower and the kenne bell blower is a 2.6L blower so it makes more power.

It won't bolt up because your intake manifold is different. The only way to make it work is to get all of the parts for a lightning swap MINUS the eaton blower and then get the kenne bell upgrade kit instead. You are looking at a lot of money and a lot of work to get all of this to work.

Take a look at this kit. It is very easy to install. If you are good with your hands you could have it installed in about 8 hours. With fuel mods (42# injectors, 90mm lightning MAF) and a dyno tune you and assuming your engine is in good working order you will make about 380HP with the 9 pound pulley. This kit will net you the highest horsepower out of all of the supercharger kits out for the 2V motors. The ONLY downfall of this kit is that your torque curve will be much steeper than if you had a positive displacement blower. So you will have less low rpm power but it makes up for it in the high rpm's.
