A few of those in the know will be aware that for a few years I have been toying with the idea of a supercharger install on my EF 4.0 Fairmont.

The idea started out with using an Eaton M90 with a custom manifold. This progressed well with the manifold being partially fabricated and 2 Mustang M90 Chargers aquired. Front dress was designed and other things investigated.

As luck would have it I was offered what was said to be a Whipple Charger an manifold. I purchased this and dropped the Eaton project, still in the shed whith all the bits. I redid the front dress etc and went ahead. Charger is actualy a Lysholm AX1600, 1.6 litre charger.

New engine: AU 4.0. 0.040" oversize, full ACL Race bottom end, modified AU sump to suit the EF K frame, Stage 3 CMS Head with a 2a Cam, all new lifters etc.

Install has now started and after a few hicups is progressing well, Engine install is being done at CMS and working around their other work as well.

Anyway here's a few pic's of the engine on the crane.

I love how subtle these whipples look!
I don't think you mentioned it but apologies if you have, are you retaining the factory ECU?

Not a Whipple. Charger is a Lysholm AX1600. Lysholm used to be aligned with Whipple but no longer. Lysholm® is now an AirPower® Group company along with Vortech Engineering, Paxton Automotive and Vortron Industrial.

Probably best known in Australia as the company that supplied the supercharger for the Miller cycle engine in the Mazda Millenia .
