How hard is the Eaton swap on a '01?

Hey guys, just curious if any of you or someone you know has done this swap before? Like what do you need and what did it cost?

Thank you!

Re: How hard is the Eaton swap on a '01?

first off the Eaton sucks (very bad heat soak, not efficient as its a root style vs twin screw *google difference if you want*)

but it can be done, its not super easy and you need far more than just the blower. You will probably have to upgrade many little things etc, costly for the little gain you get~ (well you will get good gains with the higher compression motor but you wont be able to go above 450rwhp without putting past the safe limits~)

Re: How hard is the Eaton swap on a '01?

Hmmmmmmmmmmm...........SpectorV, you have my complete and undivided attention. Please, do elaborate further if you could. Not doubting you at all, just eager to understand further. Cuz.....this is EXACTLY what I'm tryin to do.

What equivalent alternative would you suggest? Btw, I'm not trying to attain 800hp or what-not with this mod (yes, I know you can't get that figure with a M112), though, I am after 450 or so at the motor (which, I know is quite feasible). With that said, what all would I need? would my stock injectors support 450? Safe limits? what limits does the 4V have? Other than the rotating assy around 1000hp? How is it not super easy? what difficulties am I looking at?

Lol, you have my attention sir.
