Installation Instructions
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Edelbrock 5.4L Ford Supercharger System for the F-150. The Edelbrock E-Force
Supercharger System for the 2009-2010 5.4L 3V F-150 utilizes Eaton’s new Gen VI TVS Supercharger rotors, featuring a
four lobe design with a full 160 deg. of twist for maximum flow, minimum temperature rise, quiet operation, and the
reliability for which Eaton is known. These rotors however, are merely the foundation of the system. The Edelbrock
Supercharger is a complete system that maximizes efficiency and performance by minimizing air restriction into, and out
of, the supercharger. This results in maximum airflow, with minimum temperature rise and minimum power consumption.
In addition, Edelbrock inverted the supercharger and packaged it down low in the valley, allowing for an incredible, industry
leading, 14 inches of runner length, maximizing low end torque. The supercharger housing itself is integrated into the
intake manifold for a seamless design with minimal components, eliminating the possibility of vacuum leaks between
gasket surfaces. The system also utilizes a front drive, front inlet configuration giving it the shortest, least restrictive inlet
path on the market. Sitting right above the supercharger and below the enormous runners is the largest air to water
intercooler available, measuring an astonishing 110 square inches. Last but not least, the E-Force supercharger is without
a doubt the best looking engine compartment upgrade imaginable and features a uniquely styled plenum. In summation,
the Edelbrock supercharger will provide you with the most power at the lowest amount of boost resulting in neck snapping
performance that is safe to operate on a completely stock engine. It is also pending 50 state emissions legality, and can
be had with an optional 5 yr 60,000 mile warranty so that there are no worries when installing it on your brand new truck.

Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT WARNINGS
Proper installation is the responsibility of the installer. Improper installation will void warranty and may
result in poor performance and engine or vehicle damage.
Due to the complexity of the Edelbrock E-Force Supercharging system, it is recommend that this system only be
installed by a qualified professional with access to a service lift, pneumatic tools, and a strong familiarity with
automotive service procedures. To qualify for the optional warranty, it is necessary to have this system installed by a
certified ASE technician, Ford dealership, or Edelbrock approved installer. Failure to have this system installed by a
properly certified service center may void the optional warranty offered with this system. Please contact the Edelbrock
Technical Support department if you have any questions regarding how this sytem and/or your installer of choice will
affect any warranty coverage for which your vehicle may qualify.
Any previously installed aftermarket tuning equipment must be removed and the vehicle returned to an as
stock condition before installing the supercharger.
Any equipment that directly modifies the fuel mixture or ignition timing of the engine can cause severe engine damage
if used in conjunction with the Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger System. This includes, but is not limited to: ignition
boxes, air/fuel controllers, OBDII programmers, and any other device that modifies signals to and/or from the ECU.
Aftermarket bolt-on equipment such as underdrive pulleys or air intake kits will also conflict with the operation of the
supercharger and must be removed prior to installation. Use of any of these products with the E-Force Supercharger
could result in severe engine damage.
This kit includes all the parts needed to install this system on a 2wd truck. 4wd models will also need
the 15834 Oil Filter Bracket Kit to clear the front differential.
91 octane or higher gasoline is required at all times. If your vehicle has been filled with anything less, it
must be run until dry and refilled with 91 or higher octane gasoline twice prior to installation.
Inspect all components for damage that may have occured in transit before beginning installation. If any
parts are missing or damaged, contact Edelbrock Technical Support, not your parts distributor.
Edelbrock periodically releases improved versions of the calibration file found on the supplied handheld
programmer. Check the website to ensure you have the latest version, as described in step #165.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLING A BOOST GAUGE OR PRESSURE TRANSDUCER
Your E-Force supercharger is equipped with two options for measuring boost. The TMAP sensor mounted on top of the
manifold at the rear of the driver’s side, outputs a 0-5 volt signal through pins 1 & 2 (pin 1 is signal & pin 2 is signal
return,) that can be converted to an absolute pressure reading using the below calibration curve. Use of this signal
requires an ambient pressure correction for calculating boost pressure.

The second option is to utilize the pressure port at the front of the passenger side intake runner flange. Your
supercharger has been pre-drilled and tapped for a 1/8” NPT fitting. There is currently a plug sealing the hole, which
can be removed, and replaced with a fitting to adapt to your sensor.
CAUTION: Never cut into the vacuum lines leading to the fuel rail pressure sensor and bypass actuator, on the driver’s
side of the manifold, for the purpose of tapping in a boost gauge. Interruption of the vacuum signal to the fuel rail
pressure sensor can affect the fuel pressure reading to the PCM, which can result in engine failure!
