    Default NEW Edlebrock blower:Testing car needed

    It has come to our attention that there is a hype surrounding the new Edelbrock 2.3 E-Force supercharger. Edelbrock has come to us to test the power and prove the numbers for their supposed bad ass supercharger. So we are looking for a test mule to slap this thing on and put down some numbers on the dyno. Unfortunately, nothing in this world is free, however the kit will be considerably discounted from the estimated retail price of $5999.99, the only thing is you have to come to us to get it installed. For more information on the blower or any questions, shoot me a pm or call the shop 602-269-8955. For further information on the supercharger, follow the link below:

    Dan,
    Thank you for your interest in and support of the Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger. However, Edelbrock has not commissined Performance Solution to test our new E-Force. I left you a message last night to discuss further. Please call me at your earliest convenience to clarify this post.

    Thank you,
    -Jason Snyder, Edelbrock.

    Dan,

    Thank you for the follow-up call. Just to clarify to the community, Edelbrock is looking for support from installation specialists like Performance Solution. An Edelbrock sales representative has made a visit to their shop and we are encouraging Performance Solutions to try a package out and let us know what they think. So for anyone in the greater Phoenix area, Performance Solution will be a good source to have a new Edelbrock E-Force kit installed.

    Thank you,
    -Jason

    Thank you for clearing the misunderstanding Jason

    The kits def looks promising. One thing I dont buy though is the lower boost makes it more reliable. To my knowledge people break rods not intake manifolds. Too much power breaks a rod not boost.

    I believe what they are trying to say is you will not need high boost numbers to make as much power because the blower is more efficient. However I could be wrong. I would rather run 10-12 psi than to have to run 16 PSI to make the same power. We are not talking about the integrity of the motor nor the components such as rods and Pistons. I believe that they are merely remarking upon the efficiency of the unit its self, power used vs power made ratio

    Direct from the engineer - below is why we cite minimal stress on the engine:
    Boost is a measure of restriction. Horsepower is dependent on airflow, and not boost. For a given amount of airflow, the less boost, the better. This is because at a given air flow rate, as boost pressure increases, temperature increases. Increases in temperature result in a more volatile air-fuel charge, which is more susceptible to detonation. Detonation is the most common cause of engine damage on a forced induction application. In addition, as Dan said, the less restriction in the manifold, requires less effort from the supercharger to produce that given air flow rate. That lower effort translates to lower parasitic loss from the engine having to turn the supercharger. This means that for the same resultant HP out of the crank, the engine does not have to work as hard, i.e. less load on the rotating assembly.

    Our engineer settled on the 5psi for the bolt-on kit to stay within the HP limitations of the factory fuel system. Edelbrock also offers a competition kit and multiple pulley options in the event you want to upgrade your fuel system, build a stronger bottom end, increase boost and make more power.

    I'm sure this blower makes good power, but honestly from a cosmetic standpoint, it is butt ugly in my opinion. I know, I know, who cares what it looks like as long as it makes power....but it seems like they went to great lengths to design the cosmetics with the cam covers etc...and they missed the mark. I don't hink you could find another place on it to write Edelbrock again if you tried...

    Just my opinion......

    its advertiseing, I dont think it looks bad, def a bot over done. But edelbrock has a name to promote and uphold.
