Confused.:dunno:
3V with the 4V eaton?
Sounds like a project .... with more work than I'd care to take on.

yea see I don't know what engine is in the saleen. I know its a 05 naturaly aspirated. I think saleen is a 3V which would make for some serious complications with the blower..

N/A 2005+ SALEEN's are 3V (http://www.saleen.com/s281_3v_specs.htm).
So yes, it would take some work. Far more than it's worth considering packaged kits are available.

I would look into mangunson first and compare the kits (if they have any) for the 05 mustang. Magnuson is the new trade name for Eaton now... They may have something.

I would at least contact them and see if they have something available for doing the mod.

that would be an awesome conversion, but would take some effort. He's better off getting the Procharger or Vortech setup specifically for the 3V's...or if he waits just a little bit, Whipple is coming out with one :thumbsup:

If you have the Eaton already may be better to sell it to Magnuson (they buy Eatons) or on Ebay. The install probably could be done but would be more difficult and cost more to fabricate the needed parts to mate the unit (especially if you only have the blower and not the lower plenum to go with it). Why not a Saleen blower? I believe it is a whipple unit which was OEM for Saleen and has a custom intake and was designed for the 3v motor.
