      The ulimate reliable INEXPENSIVE alternative to a gladder....
      There are some older pics btw..






      It is currently getting re-finished... so it will look new when its done...
      The inside is ported and polished...

      Who else has one....
      Time to share ideas and sssshhh, trying to lay low on the tex

      let's talk prices.
      how much you get that eaton for ? $200?
      any plans to sell a kit??

    3. 03-26-2006 04:14 PM #3
      Is the Eaton more efficent than the G-Lader?

    4. 03-26-2006 04:18 PM #4
      That is not specific enough.
      Perhaps you need to ask something
      is the EATON (m45,m60,m62,m90,m112) more efficient in this specific engine configurations? If so, where? If not, where?

    5. 03-26-2006 04:25 PM #5
      I guess first of all.....which eaton is most widely used in a G60 application. Secondly, which eaton requires the least amount of custom fab work? Thanx

    6. 03-26-2006 08:33 PM #6
      Really interested in this. No g60 will EVER go back on my car.
      Bump for you from a guy weighing his options.

      I like the reroute

      2 days my eaton is coming off and getting a good porting [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      i will get some updated pics also

    9. 03-27-2006 11:57 PM #9
      Whose going to post the pics and dimensions for the brackets?

      thats plenty specific, you will get a slight improvement in adiabatic efficiency as the charger gets bigger, however none of the eatons are as efficient a gladder in the adiabatic dept.
      every company that ever produced a kit, most were m45's, scrapped it because the charger couldn't even come close to stage 4 g60 numbers, a few 60,62 & 90 conversions have popped over the years, but i don't think there has ever been a dyno chart

    12. 03-28-2006 06:16 PM #12
      all the eatons are more efficient to the pocket book. for the cost of other blowers you could afford a TURBO and an EATON
      pocketbook efficiency. very important for corrado owners to consider.
      i bet a stage 4 G60 and Eaton will make withing 10hp of each other, but one supercharger will cost more than 10X more for a used one than the other
      rebuilds of eatons with porting go for like $300-400 too. not to knock the g60 but damn thats cheap.

    13. 03-28-2006 09:24 PM #13
      How much do u have to fab and what do u got to fab??? How long did it take to fab?
      What eaton is the best? Which one can be put on the easiest And such..???
      And whats the total cost and time.. I want to do this setup on my g60 rabbit this summer looking to spend around 1000...

      THANKS

      this was a long time ago and Mark (91g60gti) is no longer an active vortex member, Ricky (VW1990CORRADO), had the same dyno results years later w/ one of Joezx6's kits
      the bottom line is eatons suck compared to a gladder, and the only thing they are better than is nothing

      I never was priviledged enough to see a dyno of Joezx6's kits... only 156 whp? What model of Eaton blower did JoeZx6 use?
      Its interesting reading those past threads... Wolf Rocco - have you dyno'd your Eaton install? Have any of these Eaton setups been dyno'd? The results would be interesting to say the least...

      156whp isn't bad consider most g60's are in the 160's on a good day..
      i bet if you setup the choices of boost at the same 15psi you'd get a +/-10psi spread at best.
      but the cost to the pocketbook spread would be much wider!

      Well I would have to say that you have a good argument there [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Do you perchance have a link to the 156 whp dyno?

    20. 03-29-2006 11:31 AM #20
      Here's my best argument for an eaton. Low boost eaton forced by a turbo... better boost response and you don't have to overspin the eaton.
      3-5psi from eaton in this setup, the other 10-13ps coming from the T3-60. Makes the turbo boost response much better. We'll probably experiment with smaller pullies for the charger in the future, but for now it's a fun experiment and will see the dyno in the coming weeks.

      Sam were talking about an all out Repoman crazy 8v built motor, w/fully built bbm glader i think Marks car jumped to the 190+ whp range, 156whp is only 15 or so hp lower than a bone stock g60 and charger

      bone stock g60 is 134whp when brand new. keep the facts straight there's some noobs here that might get confused.
      the eaton is still up to 20X cheaper than the lysholm, street prices. it is also up to 10X cheaper than the g-lader street prices (aka what i can find and buy right now).
      This flexibility is definitely worth it. Heck you can even have a spare eaton so when you need to rebuild your lysholm, you won't be missing boost.
      im gonna get an eaton, sell my rebuilt g-lader, and get a turbo kit. twinchargin' is where its at man.

    24. 03-30-2006 10:53 AM #24
      sorry dude, but its pretty obvious i meant to say higher not lower, and i agree the twin charger setup is a good setup for eaton, problem is that the $ value and complexity just skyrocketed... where are you getting 10-20 more than(g60/Lysholm) multipliers from, junkyard eaton prices aren't comparible to brand new kit or rebuilt charger prices... and we're not talking about twin charging, we're talking about single charger replacement, lets try to stay on topic brother...

      I'd love to see some Eaton dyno runs... so far though no one has posted up Post em up Eaton folks! I'm sure there are boatloads of folks that would be interested... perhaps we can pool some cash to help one of these guys dyno...
