Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger System
2010-2014 Camaro SS
Installation Instructions
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Edelbrock 6.2L GM Supercharger System for the 2010-14 Chevy Camaro. The Edelbrock
E-Force Supercharger System for the Camaro SS 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” individual intake 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 Camaro, 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.
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 at a licensed business, 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.
Please see warranty contract for all details and restrictions.
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: OBDII programmers, MAF sensors, adapters 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.

IMPORTANT WARNINGS (CONTINUE)
Edelbrock periodically releases improved versions of the calibration file found on the supplied handheld
programmer. It is recommended to check the website, www.edelbrock.com, to ensure you have the
latest version as described in the PCM Flashing Procedure on Page #9.
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.
Tech Center: http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive_new/misc/tech_center/install/index.php
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

Installation Instructions
Supercharger Installation
NOTE: It is very important to perform the PCM flashing
procedure prior to starting this installation. This will
prevent any major installation delays due to non-compatible
calibration files.
In the rare occurrence that you encounter an error message
during the PCM flashing procedure, please refer to Page 28,
titled E-mail Edelbrock Your Stock PCM Calibration.
WARNING: Battery must be sufficiently charged before
starting the PCM flashing procedure.
Only begin the PCM flashing procedure when you are
ready to install the supercharger. Once the PCM is
flashed, DO NOT START the engine until the installation
of the E-Force supercharger is complete.
1. Before starting the flash procedure, check the
Edelbrock website at:
(http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive/mc/
superchargers/support.shtml)
to confirm that you have the latest calibration file. Once
you have found the latest calibration file on the website,
power on the programmer. Press the left arrow and select
the “Device Info” option. Scroll down to “Tune Version”
and compare the tune number to the one on the website.
If they are different, download the new calibration file with
the supplied USB cable.
5. Use the directional pad to highlight the Pre-programmed
Tune option and press the Select button.
6. Read the disclaimer then press Select to continue.
7. Verify that the ignition is in the ‘Key On’ position and
that the engine is not running, then press Select.
8. Use the directional pad to highlight your vehicle and
transmission combination then press Select.
9. Use the directional pad to highlight the Begin Program
option then press Select.
10. Depending on your specific drivetrain configuration,
several separate operations may take place during this
step. Completion of each operation will cause the progress
bar to reset to zero.
11. DO NOT unplug the programmer until prompted.
2. Put the car into ACC mode, but don’t start the vehicle.
12. Turn the vehicle off when prompted to do so by the
handheld programmer.
3. Connect the supplied PCM cable on the handheld
programmer to the OBD-II connector located below the
steering wheel, and to the left of your knee.
13. Read the parting message from programmer then
press Select to continue.
4. Use the directional pad to highlight the Program
Vehicle option and press the Select button.
14. Unplug the programmer cable from the OBD-II port.
This concludes the PCM flashing procedure. DO NOT start
the engine until the supercharger installation is complete.
15.Open trunk and lift trunk liner to access plastic hold
down. Unscrew plastic hold down then remove air
compressor and foam support.
16.Use a 10mm socket to loosen and remove the negative
battery terminal.
