Hey is there a supercharger out there that will mount to the 4.6L? I've looked at some Allen and Eatons but cant find one to *BUY*. I've seen some pics though. Would this require getting another hood to allow for it to fit? Just wondering. Seems like a good idea :).

I'm not going to say which is better, because I have no experience with any of them, but another choice is vortech. they are on ebay...for the mustangs, and many other places. I'm pretty sure they'll work with a little modification to the mounting bracket. You dont need an aftermarket hood for the vortech.

In our club we have one guy with a AED and another with a Vortech. They both have stock hoods, although I believe that the AED required some "trimming" but I may be wrong. Both cars look stock as far as the hoods go and both cars are pretty fast. Just kind of depends on what your looking for I guess.

The trick about the AED kit is that its designed for the 4.6L birds. It'll fit under your stock hood fine, with maybe a tad bit of trimming, but i don't think you need trim anything.

The Vortech requires some customizing to work on the birds, but its not too difficult.

You don't have to trim anything on your hood for the AED kit to fit. The only people that have trimmed their hoods is the ones that have the plenum spacer installed.

I have the allen engine kit and love it. It is not nessary to cut the hood of the car unless you install the 1 inch tall spacer from a-train. If you get the allen I strongly recomend you make the folowing modifications to the kit. I would get a lighting screw in air charge tempeture sensor and have it mounted just above runner #2. I would recomend that you get a BBK 75 mm throttlebody. It will be nessary to port match the opening behind the throttlebody to the 75 mm gasket from the stock 67 mm opening. The reasons these mods are istalled before the kit is that it will be very difficult to do later. You will want to upgrade the car to run with out the fmu but that can come later. In order to do that you will need a fordchip.com chip or computer flash 30# hr injectors and 80 or 90 mm lightning mass air meeter.

When I bought my AED kit, all but the TB mods you list were included in the kit. This includes the computer chip.

Mine's slightly different being a Rev II and driver side TB for the Panther platform.


The AED kit adds about 70 ft-lb's across the entire rpm range. This will put a lot more area under the powerband curve. Makes an excellent daily driver. By the way it uses an intercooled Eaton M90S (Ported M90). You remove your intake manifold and bolt this in its place.


Now if you're going to be a speed or track addict, get a Paxton or Vortech. Be prepaired to spend $$ on forged internals, heads, FRPP intake and an aftercooler. These kits make massive power, when you add in the other goodies.

FACT: ALL AED KITS FIT UNDER THE STOCK HOOD. No modifications are necessary on any AED REV-I MN12 kit.

The REV-II kits also fit under the stock hoods of any Crown Vic, Grand Marq or Mustang GT.

When I get the ambition to, there is a guy in Orem, UT which is about 50 miles from my house. He wants me to take my car to his shop so he can fab up a turbo kit for the MN12 V8 cars.

No where. Well there are turbo's for mustangs but the pipe routing is much different and we have much less space. If there are any companies willing to do it it would probably be $4000+.

Nothing is impossible. It's all about the money though. A turbo will cost a lot. For less money you can probably get a Supercharger to go just as fast.


Some people here have done turbo's but I havent seen one on the MN12(89-97 tbird or cougar) 4.6 yet. There is one on a 5.0 and I think one on a 351.

as of now my recomendation is the Kenne Bell 9 psi intercooled kit. On stock motors it is dynoing around 400-450 horsepower, itis ridiculous. And you get around 150 more ft - lbs torque at 1500 rpm, its just nasty. it'll set ya back 4900 or so, but its worth it if you got it, accept no substitute.

and its intercooler so you wont blow your internals if you have a good tune. or you can opt for the six psi kit and upgrade later. imo its the best thing out. only turbos woudl be better, but you would have to put in a forged short block(3000$) and then no less that 5000$ for turbo fabbing. :leftright
