    Reached out to Edelbrock to see what the update was on their EForce supercharger for the JL/JT 3.6. Below is a quote from the email response I just received.


    Hello Benjamin,

    We are actually doing a install on a Gladiator & calibration is working through calibration for passing C.A.R.B. E.O. emissions. Design & hardware are done. Hopefully calibration will soon (August - September) finish & submit vehicle for emissions testing.

    Thank you for contacting Edelbrock.

    It blows my mind (and maybe my engine) that these companies are spending the resources to develop products, that there is no sustainable supply of fuel for.

    11.3:1 compression ratio (before positive manifold pressure) is going to create a need for octane that you can't get at about 99% of stations.

    If they produced a cam/piston/supercharger package that reduced compression, they might have something.

    But all I can see coming from bolting something on, is destroyed engines

    Well I guess you guys are over looking meth injection or running E85........ both are economical ways of bumping up octane levels.

    If Edelbrock delivers a SC, I would be interested over any other vendors. They have been in the game a long time and do quality work.

    That would put the P-star at roughly 350 crank horsepower and 301 lbs/ft. of torque for around the same money as the EcoDiesel upgrade (assuming that unicorn ever actually happens). This makes a very interesting decision. While the diesel would still produce more torque, the supercharged P-star would decimate it in acceleration and passing power and would maintain more legal payload and towing capacity also. Hmmm..........

    If I were to pull the trigger on an SC I'd want it from the company with the biggest R&D team and the proven manufacturing track record. Not saying the other kits aren't good, but I feel the need to beat the competition sometimes outweighs the need to put out the most dependable product.

    Its all in the tune brother.

    I am running 28psi at 11.4:1 compression on 93, safely... on a different car.

    I would assume the Edelbrock is running under 10psi, probably closer to 7psi. But could be wrong.

    285hp and 260tq at flywheel stock, with 15% driveline loss, that would be 242 and 221, so that's 61/41 increase in WHP. That superchips 30whp increase is impressive.

    So the supercharger kit is about twice as much increase as the superchips.....So it'll make more, but.......:surprised:
