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 ?..
