Edelbrock cylinder head and Jeep Supercharger

Post by hatem61 » May 21st, 2016, 11:24 pm

Good morning gentlemen,

Regardless of the benefits we all know about an aluminium head vs cast iron head, and naturally aspiration vs boost...

Anyone actually used the Edelbrock aluminium cylinder head and has a feedback to share...

Also anyone used the Jeep Supercharger kit from Boosted Technologies or other vendors and has a feedback to share...

Appreciate your help..

I have the sidemount kit from boosted tech on my 1999 xj. Engine has 190kmiles on it. Stock 3.55 gears locked front and rear with 33 inch super swamper bogger tires. Really added the power to the engine, fairly easy install and great phone support. Highly recommend.

How long did it take to receive the supercharger from them? I have one on order.

Took me about 4 weeks. they had just depleted stock and was building more to orders. Mine also was being made while easter jeep safari was going on which delayed it a little.

and feedback about the cylinder head?
again, knowing the benefits of aluminium cylinder heads, anyone installed the Edelbrock aluminium head and felt a substantial improvement?

I have the edelbrock head. It's been worked over by Russ Pottenger though. Ported with bigger LS1 valves installed.

I suspect my stroker makes more power than a stock 4.0L with a blower on it. I had to debate between the same superchargers you're talking about and a stroker build. I wanted a fresh engine to start with so I decided to build a high hp stroker.

Also, as far as some of the other aspects of that head regardless of it being ported, I have had no fitment issues. Valve covers, t-stat housing, intake and exhaust manifolds, everything fits and functions as it should. I also run over 11:1 static compression on 94 octane gas.
