The Internet is a wonderful place that keeps getting more wonderful with each passing day. Other than laughing at cats doing stupid stuff on YouTube, the Internet is also the home of my other guilty pleasure: unboxing videos of car-related goodies.
This time around, Hot Rod network’s unboxing video of a supercharger system caught my attention by the scruff of the neck. Intended for the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro SS (2016 and 2017MY), the Edelbrock E-Force blower for the sixth-gen Camaro SS is a stage 1 upgrade priced at $7,000 or thereabout, depending on where and what reseller you're buying it from.

Be it the 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission, the Edelbrock supercharger ups the ante to 580 horsepower and 548 lb-ft (743 Nm) of get-up-and-go at the wheels. That’s a massive gain, especially when put side by side to the flywheel horsepower of the standard Camaro SS (455 hp and 455 lb-ft or 617 Nm). Better still, the blower upgrade is 50-state emissions legal.

Fitting nicely under the factory hood, Edelbrock’s system makes use of an Eaton Gen VI 2300 TVS rotating assembly with a four-lobe design and 160-degree twist. For maximum low-end torque from the LT1 6.2-liter V8, the supercharger employs 12” long intake runners. An integrated bypass valve is also on the menu to cut down on parasitic loss under light throttle.

As a bolt-on package and as presented in the unboxing video, Edelbrock’s supercharger system needs no cutting, grinding or welding to fit into place. Like all products in the E-Force range, the company offers 3 years or 36,000 miles of warranty for the system, with up to $16,500 coverage if something does go wrong. The self-contained oiling system is good for 100,000 miles.

For owners of the 2010 to 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS, the supercharger is available for either the manual or automatic tranny. The manual model is the better pick thanks to 599 horsepower and 547 lb-ft (742 Nm) of torque.
