Supercharge the Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wrangler Supercharger

The 3.6 Liter Pentastar is a good motor and provides reasonable economy and power for a stock Wrangler. But what about those living at a higher elevation, towing, or hauling a heavy overland load?  This new supercharger is 50-state legal and works on 2012-2017 Jeep Wrangler JKs (maybe a JL option is on the way? Hint, hint). The dyno-proven numbers are impressive, with a 40- percent increase in horsepower to 317 and a 35 percent increase in torque to 278 pound-feet at the rear wheels. The design of this new supercharger is intentionally quiet, with power coming on sooner than most superchargers and turbochargers. Factory fuel economy numbers are maintained, and the system comes complete with an air-to-water high-capacity intercooler.

Reliability was one of their major focuses, with the product designed, cast, manufacturer, and assembled by Edelbrock in the USA. The case is cast from T-6061-T6 aluminum, and the rotor assembly is produced by Eaton (Gen VI). The installation is bolt-in, and everything comes with the kit. All quality systems comply with strict ISO-9001 standards, which has allowed the company to offer an industry-leading 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty with the unit. The service life of the supercharger is designed to match that of the vehicle. Edelbrock has been around for over 80 years producing high-quality aftermarket components, and it is exciting to see them address the needs of the off-road community and Jeep owner. I still remember the shiny Edelbrock valve covers and 4-barrel carb on the 289 V8 I had shoehorned into my 1953 Jeep M38a1. $6,069.87 |
