I've seen Scott (1FST4DR)'s car run in person. That Edelbrock makes power! It's ONLY drawback is being so new to the game, so people don't know what it's capable of.

Speak for yourself! You certainly aren't speaking for this motorhead.

I love modding my car! But I very much dislike that "over the top" look of some aftermarket parts!
(see my HID / HALO solution for prime example of OEM feel/look)

As a matter of fact, I am about to add one more to the Edelbrock Poll score right after I finish this post.

...I'm just patiently waiting for DS to make some breakthroughs on the 2011+ before I buy the E-Force and their Platinum Extended Drivetrain Warranty!

I absolutely LOVE that OEM look of the E-Force S/C!!! ABSOLUTELY!

Your Mileage May Vary!

p.s. I too suspect that it is only because Edelbrock was a little late to the S/C party to have much of the popular vote.

Thats an impressive video. You get a feel for the quality put into the product. $7000 sure puts a hurting on the wallet and you still have a stock bottom end.

No fuel pump change or booster needed? Why do all the other kits need them?

Actually, if you go peruse their website, and download their installation guide...you'll see that they do indeed change out the fuel pump (at least for the 5.7).

...heh, can ya' tell I'm in the recon phase of my research LOL

I did not get further than the above video which was obviously a marketing/TV spot. The install looked really easy and they mentioned nothing about fuel system other than the line disconnect. It does not suprise me if fuel pump change is required and they did not mention it because they did not mention releasing fuel pressure before line disconnect.

I down loaded that pdf several weeks ago myself . I've installed an SC kit on my old Solstice. That was pretty simple and you really didn't have to crack anything open that might leak when your done other than putting in the bigger injectors. This kit makes me a little more nervous with the whole pinning of the crank process and replacing the intake. I still don't get the crank pin. Isn't it already keyed? The pin is stronger than the key?

The crankshaft pulleys on these cars are press-fit without a woodruff key. With the extra load of spinning the supercharger, they need to be drilled and pinned so they don't spin (and then spin off!).

Most cars over the past decade have had "press fit" dampeners, the days of keyed dampeners has long since faded, unless it's a Supercharged application where you have excessive forces on the pulleys that could cause the dampener to shift. That's where the pin comes in, it does the job and it's easy for any average Joe to do, in the garage at home. Woodruff Key, not so much!

I stopped by Corvettes of Houston and they had an edlebrock supercharger kit on display. I asked how they were selling and they said that they were a very hot seller in the vette world.
