Edelbrock 2010 Camaro SS Supercharger
Part #1596, #1597, #1598 & #1599
Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger System for
the 2010 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.

Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger System for
the 2010 Camaro SS
Installation Instructions
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 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 warranty, it is necessary to have this system installed by a
certified ASE technician, GM dealership, or Edelbrock approved installer. Failure to have this system installed by a
properly certified service center may result in voiding of the optional warranty offered with this sytem. 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.
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.

Additional Supporting Components
Now that the horsepower potential of your Camaro has been substantially increased, Edelbrock strongly recommends
upgrading the suspension, exhaust and braking systems in order to fully utilize these gains. The following components
have been designed specifically to enhance the handling and acceleration capabilities of your Camaro when used in
conjunction with the E-Force Supercharger.
Suspension Components
Front Sway Bars are manufactured from lightweight
hollow-core (4130) Chromoly steel for maximum strength
and durability. The CNC forming ensures precision fitment
for a true bolt-on installation. A gloss black powder
coated finish is applied for great looks, lasting durability
and corrosion resistance. They also include greasable
graphite polyurethane bushings and high quality zinc
plated hardware.
Rear Sway Bars are manufactured from heavy duty solidcore (1045) high strength steel for maximum durability.
The CNC forming ensures precision fitment for a true bolton installation. Edelbrock engineers have designed these
to allow removal of the vehicle's rear differential cover
with the sway bar fully installed. They include greasable
graphite polyurethane bushings on most applications, ubolts and high quality zinc plated hardware.
Front Sway Bar...............................................#52813 Rear Sway Bar................................................#52814
Complete Sway Bar Set...........................................................................................................................#52815
Heavy-duty Adjustable Trailing Arms allow suspension
adjustments for optimum handling and traction. They can
be adjusted without removing the arms from the vehicle.
Simply loosen the jam nuts and adjust pinion angle.
Spherical ball assembly with Delrin bushings allows rear
suspension to move more freely. Includes graphitepolyurethane differential bushings to replace soft OE
bushings.
Direct bolt-on Brake Hoses bring the ultimate in braking
performance. They improve your braking performance for
competition or every-day driving. Replacing the OE rubber
hose with Russell brake hose reduces hose expansion for
more consistent braking. Featuring stainless steel braided
hose with zinc-plated fittings; these hoses are factory
assembled for convenient installation and meet the U.S.
Dept. of Transportation FMVSS-571.106 requirements.
Adjustable Tubular Lower Trailing Arm.............#5200
Brake Hose Kit..............................................#692380

Edelbrock shorty headers have outstanding performance
features such as mandrel-bent tubes and laser-cut or
stamped flanges. They are direct replacements for stock
manifolds, so installation is simple using the factory
crossover pipe. Headers are made of durable 16-gauge
mild steel and are 50-state street legal. Two finishes are
available: Ti-Tech or ceramic coating.

Eibach produces springs with unparalleled precision and
quality, using Hi-Ten spring steel produced to exacting
tolerances. Custom CNC coilers yield race quality springs
with street-friendly performance and great looks. The
progressive rate design produces excellent ride quality
and aggressive handling characteristics. These springs
combined with Edelbrock suspension components will
improve your vehicles handling performance, cornering
ability, and braking stability.
Eibach Coil Spring Set......................................#5237
The all new Edelbrock Adjustable Rear Toe Links help keep the tires planted firmly on the ground and pointed in the
right direction to improve handling performance. They are constructed with aluminum adjustment sleeves, 5/8" heavy
duty Heim joint rod ends and urethane bushings for strength and stability. They replace OEM arms produced from
stamped steel that can deform under hard cornering loads and which use an eccentric for rear toe adjustment that is
susceptible to slippage. The Heim joint on the Edelbrock Toe Links allow the suspension to operate smoothly throughout
its full range of motion. The kit includes lockouts for the eccentrics to stop any movement of the rear toe adjustment
and relocates the adjustment point onto the toe link for a finer and easier adjustment.
