3k? ha!

you need:

s/c pulley brakets, ac relocator, and lower intake, and intercooler. Be patient and piece together.

You can find a decent swap for a good price if you watch the forums like a hawk.

thats a start! but you need a lot more parts than that.. your going to need all that plus the heat exchanger, all the hoses and brackets and fittings and little misc pieces from an 03 04 cobra. ive seen swaps go for around 3-4k if you look around. but a COMPLETE swap is hard to come by. and unless you have someone with the ENTIRE swap it would be more efficient for you to just buy a centrifugal blower setup for your car and possibly cheaper in the long run

those are really the only "essential" pieces.

hoses, connections, etc can all be purchased via multiple runs to home depot, autozone, etc. I helped a bud do it only spent 1.3k...but it was kinda "African" engineered.

A centri blower (Vortech/Procharger/Paxton) will be easier on the engine (because of our higher compression) than the Eaton will. It will also be easier to make more power with than the Eaton should you choose to build your engine on down the road

not to hijack the thread but john mihovetz built a 4.6L 2.4 kennebell that made 962 hp on 10:1 compression

i agree a centri will be a lot easier.

run a wastegate and bov setup, and you can actually have a torque curve that almost looks like a PD blower graph.

Compression isn't everything I know, but we're talking a stock motor not a built one.
