Some show in power curves, whether it's lack of top end, bottom end, etc... some are noisy, some are known to be more delicate than others, etc. Everything is compromise, so if it bolts on and you don't like it... unbolt and trade for another option. We have a lot .
the inability for the traditional eaton to effectively pump at over 10psi, which cannot be overcome w/ a bigger eaton, that on this motor a healthy underdriven g60 can effectively and efficiently push 15-17psi, makes the eaton a performance downgrade as a standalone, i applaud you and Sam for all the digi I work, and the twin charger setup is a good solution...that being said, I want the noobs, as well as anyone going the eaton route to understand that as a single charger replacement, the eaton is good on the wallet but the consequence is lower performance after you hit the 10psi wall, this fact makes the eaton a poor choice. No porting, displacement increases, or anything else will make this charger anything else but the worst choice for this application, a fact that has been absolutely beaten to death over the years on this forum
Those who have been since the late 90's may recall that BBM scrapped their original plans to use the eaton due to the fact that they couldn't get the performance of a gladder...sorry dudes, but for this application this charger is the suck
