O.k. I have read some info but some contradicts each other. Some say that the explorer short block can't handle supercharging and others say it will handle just as much as the gt. from what I can tell is that the block it self is the same as a cobra so the block it self is no problem. and all the internal parts are from the GT so it should be fine. I want to do the explorer swap with the plans to put a kenn bell 9 pound stile supercharger on it. I know that everyone will say get started then talk about the future but I want to make a plan and stick to it. I see allot of people start something change there plans or just don't finish because that decide they want something else. I'm asking everything I can think of now so I can stick to a plan.
