4.2L V6 F150 Supercharged

Hey all. Kinda new here, and havn't posted much, but I thought I would share with you all my little project I have started on.





I'm putting a Eaton M112 off a Ford Lightning onto my 4.2L V6 F150. I did a lot of research into this and was looking around on the v6 mustang forums and found that this can be done since we share the same block. The adapter plates made for this setup is for the cobra m112 only, and since our cab forward design doesn't allow much room about the lower intake, the Lightning blower was the obvious choice. The only issue is, I have to build a custom adapter plate.

I will be running 42# injectors, 255lph fuel pump, lightning 90mm MAF housing with the stock sensor, the lightning 90mm throttle body, and some NGK step colder plugs for the supporting mods. I will be tuned by a SCT dealer who specializes in Ford Automatic transmission performance, and I am planning to run 8 to 10 psi of boost until I get forged internals.
