More details on the Edelbrock E-Force StingRay: 624+ HP; 600+ TQ; 50 State emmisions legal. another option for your considers took ...


Corvetteblogger said:
If 460 horsepower from the factory isn’t enough to satisfy your need for speed from your 2014 Stingray, then you might want to check with the good folks at Edelbrock.

Edelbrock has just revealed an all-new E-Force Supercharger kit that won’t break the bank but will deliver numbers on par with the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06. The company says its supercharger will produce 624 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.


If you’re worried about the way your Stingray might look after such a transformation, Edelbrock says its new supercharger fits under the stock hood with no modifications, “allowing you to retain the factory look of this highly engineered masterpiece.”

Edelbrock promises the installation will be a hassle-free bolt-on job that won’t sacrifice runner length or the intercooler area.

The supercharger also is designed, cast, and made in the United States for those patriotic Stingray owners out there and furthermore meets the carbon emissions standards of all 50 states.


No price has been released on either the upcoming Z06 or the Edelbrock E-Force, but estimates are that the Z06 could go in the neighborhood of $100k or more when buyers get through checking the option boxes. The website Auto Evolution believes the Edelbrock supercharger might be less than $7,899 – not bad for a car that nearly matches the 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque of the Z06 at a fraction of the cost.

By the way, Edelbrock, a well-respected specialty aftermarket performance parts manufacturer based in California, says it’s using the same quality Eaton TVS Rotor assembly that GM used on the C6 ZR1.

If you want to save some bucks, this system sounds like it might be the way for power-hungry, but thrifty, Stingray owners to go.

Edelbrock says the new supercharger will be offered in three performance levels:

Stage 1 – Street Systems – emissions legal to provide the best combo for your daily driver.

Stage 2 – Track Systems – Includes the addition of a competition air intake kit, smaller pulley, injectors (if required), and a custom tune optimized for these upgrades. It’ll be for competition racing only and is available complete or as an upgrade.

Stage 3 – Professional Tuner Systems – Include all the essential parts that a racer or tuner would need to build a custom supercharged racing setup. It’s for competition racing use only.

Any idea if the advertised 624 HP is predicated on the Edlebrock's addition to an otherwise stock vehicle?

Would header's/longtubes further boost that number?

Rabelvett...your my hero..I am considering the same setup in a few months but am looking for folks like yourself to be the trailblazer and provide feedback.

Are/have you done anything else to the vehicle to prep for the eforce (i.e. CAI, headers ect)?

Hi lancekl The answer is yes.I picked my car Tuesday.It dynoed at wheels 536hp,541tq.I was told by national speed manager to expect a 10 to 15 percent drop at wheels from the 620hp,600tq claim by Edelbrock.I had to use Edelbrocks tune if I wanted a warranty that dos't get the most out of the supercharger.The National Speed tech said he could get more hp and tq if he used there tune but no warranty from Edelbrock.Have a good day

Hey rabelvett1. How's the car performing?
Did it void the warranty? Have you had to return it to show that installed it for adjustments?

Hi chlng The car has a lot more power and torque.Runs great,0- 60 in 3.5 using launch control.The only problem is the that the hood liner doesn't clear supercharger and ruined the liner.I have been fighting Edelbrock for 2 monthsto find a fix.I was sent shims to be installed,didn't fix.Talked to Edelbrock today and was told that they will send more shims to be installed.Lets hope this works.So much for Edelbrocks claim supercharger will fit under with no modifications to stock body. Hope this helps

Hi chlng Eldelbrock blames gm.I would not recommend the e force supercharger considering the problems I have with Edelbrock to fix my car.Also you can't get a warranty.The vender they were using went out business.I have been waiting 3 months for Edelbrock to find a vender. I have been driving my car now 3 months with no warranty.As you can see very poor service you get from Edelbrock.If I was you I would let your local Chevrolet dealer install something other then a Edelbrock supercharger and you can get Warranty from GM. This is what I wish I had done. take care

thanks for the info rabelvette. so, just to clarify, gm can provide a warranty if they install a supercharger? i am very much leaning towards a procharger and would definitely prefer the warranty...thanks
