MFP 5.0L Crank Support Kit: No more broken crank snouts!
The crank support system on the Coyotes are a weak link when installing an aftermarket supercharger, especially the larger Whipple Superchargers units. The added force on the belt & pulley system has been known to flex or snap the 5.0L Coyote crankshafts causing catastrophic damage. See below...
MFP (Main Force Performance) out of Australia has come up with a solution to this issue in their Coyote 5.0L Crank Support Kit. Check out the video below and keep reading for more info.
(BONUS: We got our stock order of MFP Coyote crank supports in but unfortunately the shipping carriers weren’t so friendly with them and they got a bit nicked up. We’re offering them all for 10% off right now as a scratch & dent sale. The functionality and structure are not compromised at all, the nicks are purely cosmetic. Now is your chance to not only save your crank but also save some money. Grab yours for just $750 shipped HERE)
This bracing kit is made from billet aluminum with a billet 316 steel bearing. This crank support system helps to minimize any flex or movement in the front of the crank, via the balancer, to help prevent breakage.
The aluminum plate installs onto the timing cover around the balancer using the included spacers and bolts. The balancer bolt slides through the large 316 billet steel hub that will sit inside of the balancer to help keep it from moving/flexing from the pull of the serpentine belt.
This hub will replace the small, factory washer that is used with the balancer bolt.
The other end of the hub then sits inside of a large, high-RPM-capable bearing attached to the billet aluminum plate. These act together to keep the crank in place… and in ONE piece.
Right now this kit is only offered to those running a Whipple 2.9L or 3.0L on their 2011-2020 Mustang GT 5.0L with a 10-rib setup and the alternator relocation kit. However there are other kits in R&D and production that will be available soon from MFP for other applications (including the 2003-2004 SVT Cobra and the 2007-2014 Shelby GT500!).
