May The Force Be With You

Competition fuels the world. It’s what makes businesses better, it drives the stock market, and it’s what makes guys get out of bed in the morning. When you and your buddy have the same truck, you obviously want yours to be better. Whether it is taller, lower, faster, or more efficient, you want to brag about how your truck is better than his.
One of the biggest ways to make a truck better is by increasing its performance. Intakes and exhausts are great and all, but if you want a big jump in power and torque, you want to look into forced induction. Recently, Edelbrock Performance finished production of their E-Force supercharger kit for the 2009-2012 Ram 1500s with the 5.7L Hemi. Edelbrock packs a big punch into each of their E-Force supercharger kits. At the heart of each system lies an Eaton Gen VI 2300 rotating assembly. Using this assembly ensures maximum airflow, minimum temperature increase, and quiet operation for excellent drivability. Built into the supercharger housing is the intake manifold for a seamless design and less opportunity for a vacuum leak. For us truck guys, torque is king, and the E-Force intake manifold has 7-inch-long runners for huge gains in low-end, stump-pulling torque. A duet comprised of an air to water intercooler and a low-temp heat exchanger keep intake air temperatures to a minimum. All of this guarantees you receive the highest power gains for your money. The entire install was a bolt-on affair.
Always wanting more out of our project trucks, we took a trip to Edelbrock as they bolted on some serious power atop our Hemi-powered 2012 Ram. Follow along to see how an E- Force supercharger may be the missing link to your performance needs.

The black and machined housing looked great in the engine and really set off the engine bay. The after dyno numbers revealed a final horsepower and torque increase of 102 and 118 respectively. This resulted in 414 hp and 449 lb-ft at the wheels. All that power doesn’t mean the truck isn’t drivable. Around town, you wouldn’t even know any changes were made thanks to an integrated bypass valve that keeps boost low under light loads, and it’s super-quiet. However, the minute that throttle is mashed, the boost kicks up and the truck pulls like a freight train.
