427hp for 3.6L Pentastar JK Wrangler with Edelbrock's E-Force Supercharger?
Bolt-on boost for the JK Pentastar
The 3.6L Pentastar engine in the 2012-present Jeep Wrangler JK puts out a factory-rated 285 horsepower. Edelbrock's new E-Force Supercharger for the 3.6L Wrangler that we spied at the 2014 SEMA show could add up to 50 percent more power on top of that. The system is still undergoing its final tweaks and tests, but we like much of what it promises.
For starters, Edelbrock uses a tried and true Eaton Gen IV 1320 TVS rotor assembly to promise a long service life. The supercharger and components are designed to bolt right onto the Pentastar engine with no cutting, drilling, tapping, or oiling mods. The supercharger holds it's own oil that is good for 100,000 miles before it needs changing. An integrated bypass valve dumps boost at high vacuum signals so the blower doesn't eat excess power and hurt fuel economy under light load conditions like cruising. But mat the accelerator and the boost seamlessly kicks back in.
Final numbers are still being worked out, but the system should deliver around 7 psi of boost. An included hand-held programmer is included to modify the timing and fuel delivery. In all, the Edelbrock E-Force system for the 3.6L JK Wrangler could hold the potential to up your V-6's power north of 400hp at the crank.
