For an easy setup you could get a turbo setup off a BA and it would be enginereed for the car.

Or are you set on a supercharger?

The OP clearly stated he has a 4.0L. The YT Whipple kit is for the Boss.

you can buy the chargers separately and use them on whatever engine you feel like....of course you would then need to fabricate a lot of the extras yourself, if you were capable that is

I get better economy commuting,but when i thrash it it goes out the door.
It's not intercooled, doesn't need it at this state of tune but if i ramp it up i will intercool or water/meth or both.

eaton have a 4th generation setup now, and the mp90 seems the right size for the 4.0l. has a slightly different casing, the "magnusun" or something like that, looks a lot like a whipple. capa sell them for about $2900. dont know what they are worth from eaton...
