I have read a few questions about PCs becoming a lich and how to do it.

Now I was wondering if there is any information about what changes mechanically for a PC when turning in a lich. Are there stat blocks for it or should a DM homebrew these kind of things?

    \$\begingroup\$ @AntiDrondert I have seen the lich entry in the monster manual but that says nothing about the effect of a player becoming a lich and what effect it would have. you cant just copy the lich stat block and make that your character sheet, it would be to strong \$\endgroup\$

PC transforms into a lich

The only source I could find that directly addresses PC actualy becoming a lich is Curse of Strahd adventure.
This can be found at the end of Chapter 13, pg. 196:

When the beneficiary drinks the potion, he or she instantly transforms into a lich under the Dungeon Master's control (use the stat block in the Monster Manual, altering the lich's prepared spells as desired).
