It’s no secret that I have had a great relationship with my friends over at Edelbrock for years, in fact my “professional media career” started on their steps as the host of Hot Rod Magazines radio show. It also meant that having them as partners with Cars Illustrated was sort of a no-brainer for both them and us – but it does not give them the golden hall-pass to taking it easy on their products.
In fact, it opens the door to me beating on them even harder than normal….enter the Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger kits for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS.
Built with internals from Eaton and their TVS Supercharger rotating assembly, it features 160° four lobe design that we’ve seen in other E-Force packages and is set up to maximize air flow and power. Combined with efficient intake designs and an air to water built-in intercooler it’s an attractive choice for someone that wants more out of their 2016 SS and wants to do it under the stock hood – the unconfirmed number I’ve been told was 624HP, but more was left on the table.
But I’m just gonna beat the snot out of it and they were just crazy enough to say that I could…so look for updates on their development and more importantly look forward to me testing this car on both the street and the track sometime in the spring…maybe this is a good time to start passing the hat to collect bail money? – the Janitor
