    Finally got a Marauder! Only took 18 years...

    I've wanted a Marauder since they came out when I was a young deputy sheriff. Something about making $11.17 an hour made that a bit impossible lol. I was searching for them the other day and came across this gem on Autotrader.

    2004 Silver Birch 300B, 89K miles, sunroof...oh....and a little something extra under the hood. Procharger installed by Reinhart per the seller.

    Flew out to CA to pick it up with a friend and am currently road tripping it back to Atlanta.

    Only notable issues are a lack of power steering and a weak alternator. Going to fix the alt when I get home and have the PS fixed in the near future.

    This will be my weekend/project car. Daily is a 2020 Explorer ST in Atlas Blue.

    Good find! It probably has gears and a torque converter too.
    It may also have kvr rotors too, they were a option. Did you get any Reinhart literature too?

    The V2 silver in my signature is a Reinhart car.

    Nice buy! It’s a Novi s/c, not a Procharger, but either way it’s sweet!
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    I thought I saw a paxton sticker on it! My only boosted cars until now were an 03 Cobra and now the Explorer ST. Still a newb to forced induction lol.

    Thanks for the good eye!
