Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger System for
the 2010-2012 Camaro SS
Installation Instructions
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Edelbrock 6.2L GM Supercharger System for the 2010 Chevy Camaro. The Edelbrock EForce Supercharger System for the 2010 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 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, 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, 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.
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.

IMPORTANT WARNINGS (CONTINUE)
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.
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 to ensure you have the latest version, as described in
step #163.
