Anybody running a ported Eaton with Stage II heads? I've searched but, not come up with much. I know that in my new setup, the Eaton will likely be the "weak spot", but I am curious as to what to expect. My previous Dyno was 400/510 with the %3 lower, CAI and Hi-Flow mids on stock exhaust.

My setup will be:

built short block (no power - just support)
Stage II Heads (added power)
Comp Cams HE270 aka Stage II cams (added power)
a ported Eaton (power added)
ported upper plenum (power added)
a 2# upper pulley (power added)
a 5# lower pulley (no power - was already there)
Long tubes (power added)
Hi Flow cats (no power - already there)
Bassani X-pipe cat-back (power?)
60# injectors (no power - just support)
255 lph pumps
SCT Big Air or MAF Extender (no power - just support)
SCT PRP tuning by me (power? - I hope so!)
Open Element CAI - (no power - already there)
58" traction bars (already there)
MT ET Streets 28x11.5

I'd love to top this with a Whipple, a KB or a MP, but it looks like my money tree stopped bearing fruit.

Thanks,
Herb


BTW - I've heard that JJ may have some experience on this, so please chime in [smilie=fingersx.gif]

Ported Eaton should be fine with that combo- from what I hear is that your boost will be less due to the fact your adding heads, cams and longtubes. Just do what im going to do with my JLP shortblock, im going to run a #6 lower and 2 upper until the motor gets broken in then im going with a #8 lower.

If the right deal falls into my lap I might do that. I'll see what at the swaps and the midway in Houston at the end of April. My money tree is pretty damn withered here lately, so I've got to re-use what I can.

hmmm, actually, I guess I'm not re-using much here, am I?

i just recently added a ported heads and stage 2 cams.

i picked up 50 to 60 hp and torque :D

that gave me 3 tenths at the track


porting the eaton will help you to keep the heat out when you spin that puppy.

and remember you are gonna lose some boost when you have those heads and cams on that motor
