A 50-state street legal, 5 year/100K mile warranty S/C kit for the SS!

This thing is sweet. Saw it on Hot Rod TV today. A complete 50-state street legal, 5 year, 100K mile warranty, supercharger setup with programmer, fuel system, everything. puts out 545 hp they stated on the show.

The warranty bit caught my eye.

The limits are not horrible, but not great either.

From the PDF about the warranty:


LIMITS OF LIABILITY
TIER ONE’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY PER COVERED VEHICLE UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO $8,000.00.
THIS REPRESENTS THE TOTAL OF THE INDIVIDUAL COMPONENT GROUPS’
LIABILITY AS FOLLOWS:
ENGINE COMPONENTS ARE COVERED TO A MAXIMUM OF $5000.00,
TRANSMISSION COMPONENTS ARE COVERED TO A MAXIMUM OF $1500.00
AND REAR AXLE COMPONENTS ARE COVERED TO A MAXIMUM OF $1500.

I was about to say, uh, am I using different math?

So basically, the only way the warranty will ever pay out $8000 is if the supercharger blows all three things at the same time? Am I assuming correct?

If the supercharger costs more than 5k, then that warranty is BS to start with, right? Or are they saying in addition to the supercharger itself, the warranty ALSO includes up to $xx amount of the rest of the car?

Either way, we all know if you destroy one of these blocks, you're going to be paying way more than 5k...

Thats just a vendor covering his backside. Almost all performance parts will have that or "for off road use only" on it somewhere.

You are correct, if the engine, trans, and rear end go out at the same time, or at different times, the warranty will only pay $8k in repairs.

Or if the engine blows two separate times, and each time the bill to fix it is $4,500, you'll have to eat the $4k left over from the second issue.
The warranty repair amounts are a total over the life of the warranty, not per occurrence.

Who would have thought I actually learned something from working for a sleezy aftermarket car warranty place.

And the more detailed info on what is covered from the PDF...
It looks like they may be lumping the SC kit into the $5k for the engine.

The "competition kit" is basically a "tuner kit"...leaves out certain components,injectors,tune ect...making it no longer qualify as "street legal" as the kit would not be as tested for CARB certification.


As for the warranty...looks to me like it has to be purchased...$775 for the 60mo/100k
Also just some other tidbits the kit must be installed by a GM Dealer,Edlebrock certified installer or ASE certified installer ect ect...

As for the block it says if the heads or block are damaged by failure of one of the covered parts the warranty will pay up 5,000 toward a "remanufactured long block"

these supercahrger warranties are almost useless in my opinion. there's too many "if's , ands or buts" to hold any concrete proof that they're gonna be there for you should something go south.

now give me a specific story that proves otherwise and I might have a more positive outlook on this.

If you don't alter the tune. If you don't alter the exhaust. If you don't add a shift kit. If you don't get different than stock size tires. If you change the intake. If you don't...........

One of my neighbors had Cummins deny warranty on a spun rod bearing because the PH wasn't right in the coolant. This was on an ag tractor. He broke a heater hose and just added water to get back running. What the hell coolant PH has to do with rod bearings is a mystery to me. Moral is.......it has more to do with the company behind the warranty than anything to do with what the warranty actually states. I think they'll pay or not pay based more on how much revenue this blower generates. If it turns into a cash cow for them, they'll be fairly easy to deal with. If margins are tight, it will be a whole nother story.

Yes, a Chevy dealer can install them.They just need to register with Edelbrock as an installer.

just received my new edelbrock catalog in the mail today.
the E-FORCE s/c has a 100,000 mile "OPTIONAL" warranty.so i guess the warranty will cost extra.
the cost is $6,495.87 for the A6,part # 1597
the cost for the M6 is the same part # 1598
there is a competition s/c kit also part # 1599,but doesn't list a price.

Note that is a manufacturer warranty. It does not mean your factory warranty is still valid if you install the kit.

I was going to post Magnuson's supplemental warranty to show it was the same but their website has been down.

These warranties are thru an insurance carrier. The Edelbrock parts themselves are covered by Edelbrock's warranty.

The reason for no additional mods is simply because the "package" has been durability tested. Start throwing additional parts, customs tunes, higher boost, and the "package" is no longer the same.
