Default Easy to swap Eaton M90 ported?

I've recently purchased the same Eaton M90 supercharger I own on my 2005 SS, but this one was ported on the inlet & outlet.

Is it an easy swap? Is there something I should look out for? I was planning on utilizing the Northstar throttle body along with it. The kit came with the supercharger oil needed, thankfully.

Yeah it's easy enough. Just unbolt everything, and reverse to install. Definitely swap the gasket at the same time, and don't reuse the throttle body gasket, get a new one of those too.

Thank you for the assistance and advice on the gaskets. I probably wouldn't of replaced them if someone hadn't said anything.

They claim to be reusable, but I've experienced stretching in them where they wouldn't seal right again. My TB was whistling until I swapped a new gasket on.

x2 on the gaskets. I have an EasyPerformance rubber TB gasket that's reusable, not sure if they are still sold though.

I might just grab the gaskets on ZZP's website in the Spring, when I'm ready to swap the supercharger, throttle body & exhaust. I know the website isn't as booming as it was years ago but I'll make sure to post updates and ask for advice.
