Edelbrock E-Force for LLT

i contacted Edelbrock through their facebook page and asked if there was any plans to develop a system for the LLT engine for the 5th Gen Camaro.

they replied, "Right now there are'nt any plans but I will forward your information on to the R&D guys and who knows? If there is enough of a demand, it could happen."

i say let's send them enough enquiries to make them do some serious research and possibly develop a system for us!!!

so everyone who would like to see this happen, send them an email through facebook or directly and see what happens!!!

Facebook; https://www.facebook.com/edelbrockperformance

Contact; (they don't seem to list a direct email on their website) http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive_.../contact.shtml

yeah, that's what i figure, but the public could speak volumes to let a manufacturer know what's wanted in the marketplace. at least worth a bit of effort on our end to give them some idea of the desire we have.

I'm all for more options and for some of these larger companies throwing some R & D dollars at this platform. Even so RX is way ahead of the curve as they've been working on FI for this platform the longest.
I got an email from Lingenfelter yesterday advertising all of their usual products for SS's CTS-V's and Vettes. I took occasion to let them know of the recent flury of activity surrounding the LLT/LFX and to let them know that they're missing out on the business.

Forget those big companies. I am not going to give them any of my money the way they abandoned the LLT.

We got plenty of FI support these days....

2 SC's... RX and IPF

2 turbo's... RX and coming soon HPS

only reason I see the need for more companies is because of a roots style blower, but lets be honest, we have all the options we need for the LLT

I spoke to magnuson about this very subject on the Hot Rod Power Tour and this is what I was told:

Not enough demand
Would not be financially viable

My suggestion is to have a group meet with magnuson at camaro5fest if there's enough interest in those of us who haven't invested in a system yet!

sounds like a good plan.

i am thinking of developing an intake myself, and finding an off the shelf supercharger, and getting a shop to help put it all together. should be straight forward as far as the bolt together part, should be able to adapt the knowledge in the centrifugal SC data to get a tune started.

we'll see!!??!!??

Really!

Ask Maggie how many they have to sell a month to make it viable. The lfx is going in a lot of gm models. Camaro and cts alone are big markets.

So how about it fellow V6 owners? I see Magnuson will be at the fest. Any interest in developing an "RFP"? I'm really excited that Tracey and IFP and HPS and others are doing this, but wouldn't it be awesome to have Magnuson behind us?

If I could be there, I so would. Hopefully enough FI'd V6 Camaros will show up this year to make a few of these larger companies take notice that V6 owners are not only interested but actually buying FI kits for there Camaros.

I agree a roots type blower would be seriously cool. Not gonna lie, if it was available it would be going on my car.

That said I'm definitely looking forward to the Vortec V3 based RX kit that's going on my car here shortly.

Totally convinced to buy a supercharger after today! Just saw a cts-v run at the local track and the whine on it was insane! It sounded amazing going down the 1/4 mile. I really hope we can get a roots kit cuz if not, tracy will have my money soon.

Well if 3K for the SC and another 2K for everything else, you might be good since that's what the superchargers are going for anyway..... I'd buy a whipple in a heartbeat!
