Edelbrock GM LS3 Supercharger System for
2010 and later Grand Sport Corvettes
Installation Instructions
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Edelbrock 6.2L GM Supercharger System for the Chevy Corvette. The Edelbrock E-Force
Supercharger System for the 2010 and later Grand Sport Corvette (not compatible with Z06, ZR1 or base models) 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. 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 minimal temperature rise and power consumption. 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. The supercharger is inverted, expelling the air upward. Air pressure then builds in
the plenum, before being drawn down through each of two intercooler cores, oriented horizontally, next to, and below the
supercharger outlet. After passing through the intercooler cores, the air travels through the long 12” runners, which route
underneath the supercharger housing to the cylinder head ports, in a horizontal, nested configuration. The upper plenum
area is enclosed by a top cover that has been designed to provide an appealing and distinctive under-hood appearance.
This configuration allows for a compact package that can fit under the stock hood and cowl of the C6 Corvette, without
sacrificing runner length, or intercooler area. The E-Force supercharger features a uniquely styled plenum, and includes
matching side covers. The Edelbrock supercharger provides neck snapping performance that is safe to operate on a
completely stock engine. It is 50-state emissions legal, and can be had with an optional 5-year 100,000 mile warranty
so that there are no worries when installing it on a brand new car.

Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT WARNINGS
Before beginning the installation, use the enclosed checklist to verify that all
components are present in the box then inspect each component for damage
that may have occurred in transit. If any parts are missing or damaged, contact
Edelbrock Technical Support (800-416-8628), not your parts distributor.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR OWNERS OF THE 1575 599HP KIT
If you have purchased the 599HP Complete supercharger kit P/N: 1575, then your system includes an upgraded
in-tank ZO6 fuel pump, to support the additional horsepower that this system provides over the standard, 554HP, kit
P/N: 1574. Installation of this pump is complex, and not something we recommend for the do it yourselfer. Edelbrock
strongly recommends that before beginning the install of your 1575 supercharger kit, you take the vehicle to a Chevrolet
dealership, or experienced Corvette repair facility, for installation of this pump, per the specified GM workshop manual
procedure. Once installed, you can follow these instructions to fully install the Edelbrock system.
NOTE: Competing systems often recommend, or utilize, voltage amplifiers for the purpose of increasing the output of
the stock fuel pump. While these systems do work, and will work in conjunction with the E-Force superchargers as
well, Edelbrock does not endorse their use, as they can significantly reduce the life of the stock fuel pump, resulting in
possible engine damage. Edelbrock strongly feels that the increased effort to install the upgraded, in-tank, ZO6 fuel pump
assembly, included in the 1591 kit, is the proper way to address the need for increased fuel volume.
WARNING: Installation of this supercharger will result in a significant change to the
performance characteristics of your vehicle. It is highly recommended that you take some
time to familiarize yourself with the added power and how it is delivered. This must be
done in a controlled environment. Take extra care on wet and slippery roads as the rear
tires will be more likely to lose traction with the added power. It is never recommended to
turn off your vehicles traction control system.
Proper installation is the responsibility of the installer. Improper installation will void all
manufacture’s standard warranties and may result in poor performance and engine or vehicle
damage.
Due to the complexity of the Edelbrock E-Force Supercharging system, it is recommended 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 supplemental warranty, it is necessary to have this system installed by a
Certified ASE Technician, GM Dealership, or an Authorized Edelbrock Installer. Failure to do so will void and/or disqualify
any and all optional supplemental warranties offered with this system. Please contact the Edelbrock Technical Support
department if you have any questions regarding this system and/or how your installer of choice will affect any warranty
coverage for which your vehicle may qualify.

Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT WARNINGS (CONTINUE)
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.
91 octane or higher gasoline is required at all times. If your vehicle has been
filled with anything less, it must be run until almost dry and refilled with 91 or
higher octane gasoline twice prior to installation.
Failure to use the required 91 octane gasoline or higher could permanently
damage your engine. Any failures associated with not using premium 91 octane
gasoline or higher, will be ineligible for warranty repairs.
Edelbrock periodically releases improved versions of the calibration file found on the supplied handheld
programmer. Check the website, www.edelbrock.com, to ensure you have the latest version, as described in
the PCM Flashing Procedure on Page #10.
It is also recommended that you check the Edelbrock Tech Center Website for any updates to this installation
manual. Please refer to the lower right hand corner to verify that you have the latest revision of this
installation manual before beginning the installation.

CRANK PINNING & OIL COOLER INSTALLATION
CRANK PINNING NOTE: Some of the following steps,
while not strictly related to installing the supercharger,
detail the process required for installing a lock pin between
the harmonic balancer and the crankshaft nose. The
factory design uses a press-on balancer that does not
include an anti-rotation mechanism to prevent the balancer
from loosening. The additional torque of the E-Force
system increases the likelihood of this occurring. Any
damage caused by failure to follow this procedure will not
be covered by the optional warranty. If you have already
had this procedure performed on your vehicle, skip steps
72-106 and 124-139.
OIL COOLER NOTE: Installation of oil cooler is explained
with in the crank pinning procedure as It is easiest to install
once the crank pinning procedure has been completed, but
before the steering rack and other parts are reinstalled.
If you have already had the crank pinning procedure
performed on your vehicle, then the Oil cooler installation
(Steps 107-123) can be performed after the supercharger
installation has been completed, albeit with a greater
degree of difficulty.
