***DM1's Eaton swap build*** all eaton stuff in here
Wonder which set-up ends up costing more/less. I know you can slap a procharger on in the driveway, but doing an eaton is a biotch and from what I've seen and requires lots of extra parts, relocation of stuff, etc. The eaton can be found dirt cheap though, as opposed to a procharger kit running into some pretty big money. I just wonder if the extra stuff and labor required for the Eaton will end up costing more than a procharger? Either way, I still like the roots charger on a 4.6 engine, but thats just my preference.
well with a procharger kit your getting everything needed for ~5-6g's
the heatons can be bought failry cheap 250-500$ depending on port job etc.. problem is getting all the parts you may have to go threw a ford dealership and that is big $$$$$$.. i think eaton swaps were ~3,500$ from start to finish
Sounds like you can get off a good bit cheaper with the Eaton, but you're going to pay for it via pain in the ***. I bet a lot of those parts could possibly be found in a junkyard or off a wrecked Cobra.
WOW! I didn't think this thread was gonna turn into a "I should've" kinda thread. Yes, I could've gone with a centrifugal kit, but why pay 2-3k more? For that just go with a 100-125 shot for a couple hundred bucks. I had a centrifugal blower on my previous car(an import), I didn't like the fact that it didn't hit full boost til almost redline and it wasn't real reliable. I could've gone with a 2.1L kenne bell kit, but why spend 5k more? its not like I can push whatever power I want. Like I said before, I'm just looking for around 400-415whp now, I'll be happy with that. Yes it requires a lot of parts (95% of which I already have) but you can't beat the whine. If I build the bottom end in the future and feel like pushing it to around 500whp, with less than 1k, I can have a stage 4 port with a pulley. I'm just saying that everyone has their own likes and dislikes, some people spend thousands just to get to 350whp on a n/a setup, if thats what they like, more power to them.
