Biggest issue is the pulley package on the front of the crank snout gets really long and you run out of real estate for a fan that you need to cool all that heat. Long time ago Explorer Express sold a roots kit that fit the Explorer accessory drive.

I have seen one, inner fender modification and a bracket to move the blower back it fits. But a single turbo is easier to package in my eyes and drivability is better. I dont have pictures but it was a cool setup not for the average guy in his garage, custom machine work all to run on the explorer belt

So the PowerDyne just uses the original drive belt and doesnt require a second belt.

Someone needs to do this on a explorer so I can copy.

If someone has already done this it might save me a ton of time.
Building brackets with dual acc mounted on them take time.

They way these explorer 5.0 have the intake to the side work perfect for these single driver side supercharger.

We have to get some orders in and promote this new product if it's ready.
