Edelbrock 4.6L Ford Supercharger System
for 2005 and later Mustang GTs
Installation Instructions
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Edelbrock 4.6L Ford Superchager System for the Mustang GT.
The Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger System for the 2005-2009 4.6L 3V Mustang 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, 15 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. Further minimizing inlet restriction is the massive 85mm electronic
throttle body that is included in the kit. 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. It features a uniquely styled plenum, and
includes matching side covers. 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 3 yr 36,000 mile warranty so that there are no worries
when installing it on your brand new car.

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 3-year, 36,000 mile 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 result in voiding of both the optional warranty offered with
this sytem, as well as the standard Edelbrock parts warranty. 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.
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.
This kit includes all the parts needed to install this system on ‘07 & ‘08 Mustang GTs only. ‘05 & ‘06
models will also need the 15804 Cooling Upgrade Kit, while ‘09 models will need the 15805 Hardware Kit.
Mustang GTs produced in 2005 and 2006 were equipped with a cooling system that mounted the thermostat on the
cold side of the radiator. The Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger was designed to take advantage of the improvements in
cooling efficiency that are offered by mounting the thermostat on the hot side as found in later models. Cooling
Upgrade Kit #15804 will allow owners of ‘05 & ‘06 model year Mustangs to retro-fit their cars with the later model
cooling systems, and is required before the supercharger can be installed. 2009 model year Mustangs recieved some
minor changes from previous model years and will require a different pulley nut and intake manifold gaskets, offered in
kit #15805, to operate correctly. It is strongly recommended that these parts be purchased, if needed, before beginning
installation of the supercharger.

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 rear 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!

Installation Instructions
X. Installing Spark Plugs (Not Included In 1585)
XI. Installing the Supercharger
NOTE: The following steps only apply to Mustangs built
prior to December, ‘07. Later applications have the
proper heat range spark plug installed from the factory
and will not use the supplied plugs. These Mustangs
should skip ahead to ‘Installing the Supercharger’.
Early model spark plugs that need to be replaced have a
ground strap that extends all the way around the
electrode, while late models have a standard ‘L’ shape.
‘08 Mustangs should remove a single plug to determine
their style of plug, and if replacement is necessary.
