Buy a SuperCharger need advice

Hello there!

I am one click away from buying the Edelbrock E-Force SuperCharger. I feel like I have done adequate research and especially living in California my options are limited for me to stay CARB/SMOG Legal. My other though was the SLP TVS 2300, but the Edelbrock to me seems like a better buy.

Is or has any one ran the Edelbrock Supercharger and experiences with it please?

Since I will primarily be participating in AutoCross, which I why I chose to go supercharger. I was initially looking I to the Turbonetics Single turbo kit, but the spooling time would hurt my track times and also there seems to be quite a few issues with that kit also (even though it is carb legal).

The eforce is a great, trouble free unit, that is proven reliable over a few years now. I am sure the heartbeat is also but haven't seen any results yet that show me one is better than the other.

Nothing but good results here. Lots of torque at low rpm. Should work good with sticky tires on an auto cross.

Unit installed as stock is OK, but even better with a knowledgeable tuner and the correct supporting mods for the hp you want.

I like the new look of the cover too.

Both the Edelbrock and The Magnuson Superchargers Heart Beat are great options. Depending on what your budget is, and what your goals are one might be better than the other. If you are interested in discussing this further please give us a call, we are offing some great rebates and packages this month!

Yes I do...we also offer discounts on our drive train products that you might need as well at a price that can't be matched when you purchase a blower.

How about customers in Australia that already spent $9000 on a blower spending nearly $11000 to get a heartbeat ?..

Why do you like it better than the Whipple? Just curious...

Edlebrock is a awesome unit, so is the magnuson and the whipple units as well, but my personal choice is the edelbrock eforce it produces the lowest compressed inlet temps and is a perfect fitment everytime. We have some great specials on all the above units so hit us up and see how much we can save you.

I was in the same boat as you originally. My car I road race all the time, I take to autocross events, but I wanted more power. I went with Vortech with a centrifugal supercharger, primarily because my 10 years of racing experience and my knowledge of how these superchargers discharge power, the centrifugal BY FAR for a road racing car is going to be suited for you much better than a twin screw blower.

Those who are suggesting twin screw blowers know that the torque you get from a twin screw is almost instantaneous. Putting a significant amount of torque down instantly is NOT good for road racing, nor is it good for autocross. I know this from experience, I had a Kenne Bell twin screw on one of my previous cars, and even at 2,500 RPM the torque was too big to put the power to the ground.

Now some might say, don't you want torque? That's true, BUT not the way the twin screw delivers the torque. Getting out of a corner, the most important aspect of racing, putting the power down out of a corner, is very difficult to do with a boat ton of torque. Where the centrifugal benefits is that it's a linear power band, still with a high torque level, but it's not going to cause a spin like a twin screw would. I personally prefer the centrifugal on my car because of that, making it easier to drive on the streets, and much easier to drive very fast on a track.

Think about it, seriously, you'll see where I'm coming from. I feel very adamant about the centrifugal for road racing cars, it's just too much torque on the ground too quickly with a twin screw. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions

Good luck with your choice.

Autocross is about handling and linear torque. Make your decision based on that .

I love my eforce and have over 33k on it .

I am leaning heavily on the E Force and can get it at a smoking deal $6200 delivered to my door. But I live on Cali so I can not retune or it voids the carb, I would love to run it with headers and an intake but once again there goes the carb... So I have to run the unit bone stock. And besides I don't want the hassle of changing parts every smog and retuning all the time.

What is the heart beat??? Is that just the Magnuson?

Heartbeat is a new Magnuson blower and an excellent choice.

If my only choice was an E-Force I'd stay Naturally Aspirated.

What do you mean by that? Stay naturally aspirated? The Edelbrock E Force is not a good choice compared to Magnuson???

In this thread there are about 5 or so people that praise this kit? So I don't really understand why you say that? The numbers between the edelbroxk and the Maggie are very very close ok a stock application.

I am happy for them that they have money to spend. Like I said, I don't doubt the heartbeat is a great blower, I just haven't yet seen proof its any better or more efficient then the Eforce.
The eforce has been around a while now and has proved to be trouble free, while making decent power. If someone wants really big power, or plans to go that route later, neither the eforce or heartbeat are the right choice for them. Of the two in question, I think it comes down to personal preference.

If you have some actual logs, results, or proof that the heartbeat makes better power or runs cooler, please post it up. I keep hearing that story but never seeing any proof.

Pretty dumb statement. I have yet to meet many eforce owners who are not happy with the decision.
