Did you dyno below 2500 RPM (either stock or with the supercharger)?

Our chassis dyno tests begin at 2500RPM. Starting below 2500RPM in a high gear would lug the engine and be unrealistic. In a real world situation, during low MPH driving, the automatic trans will downshift under WOT. An experienced driver also knows to downshift the manual in the same scenario.

Except for 1st gear...

No first gear tests to share. Chassis dyno tests for power output are completed in 1:1 or as close as possible for best representation of crank power increase. Drivetrain and tire speed limitations usually require testing in one or two gears below 1:1 depending on the transmission for Jeeps.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I am aware that you don't dyno in first gear.

This is what my first gear comment was referring to. In a real world situation the automatic transmission will not downshift under WOT if it's already in first gear. Same goes for a manual.

Low end torque is desirable in an off-road vehicle, and rock crawlers spend a lot of time at low speeds.

Thanks for clearing up the first gear comment. We were worried this thread was going to take an odd turn LoL.

I'll be honest, we're the calibration team, not sales. Our goal is to provide accurate info, not wishful thinking. With that being said, any forced induction manufacturer that is selling their product as a crawling upgrade doesn't understand the Jeep world. Proper tires, axle ratio, suspension and transfer case gearing is where you're money is better spent IF this is your only focus. However, a roots style supercharger will create more torque across the entire RPM range vs stock by design. Especially when compared against centrifugal.

In our opinion, the supercharger is best geared toward individuals that have turned their "brick in the wind" JL/JT further into a heavy tank. It goes without saying but larger tires, lighting accessories, armor, tents, etc. add rolling/weight/wind resistance that handicaps the Jeep in day to day situations. The supercharger will make accelerating onto a highway, passing at higher speeds or higher speed off roading (such as sand like the pic below) much easier than stock. It's also fun for surprising full size larger displacement trucks off the line at a light!

The EO legal kit has been available for a couple months now. From our last count we've successfully supported 11 JL/JT's so far.
Word to the wise, invest in the complete kit with calibration. Aside from being emissions legal, we've had a couple customers go the "no tuner" route and still need our help. Resulting in added unnecessary cost and downtime for them. As for calibration support, we are utilizing HP Tuners for the ECM unlock and their RTD Flasher for the reading/writing of the software.

What size wheels/tires and what gearing did the jeep have with this graph? Thanks.

The advertised results are from our 2018 JL Rubicon 8AT with stock 33's and 4:10's. Emissions, baseline and supercharged power testing was completed with original equipment. Our marketing team added Dick Cepek wheels and 35's for "show points" after completion of R&D. I believe the Edelbrock website lists this info too, at least we told them too. Engineering and sales don't always see eye to eye.

Thanks for coming onto the forum and sharing this info.

Couple of questions

-what lead to the decision to use the 1320 vs the 1900 as seen in 'other' kits?

along the lines of "is the tune complete? or just a starter to get you to a tuner?":
-can you comment at all if/how your tuning file addressed EGR function?
-What steps were taken to adjust cam phasing?
-are there any modifications to TCM tuning?
-is boost linked to throttle request? ie, if I'm just trying to catch 10mph with a small pedal request, do I end up with all the boost on the hit? or is it progressive based on engine load?
-Im assuming with being CARB approved, fuel trim functions still function as normal?

Thanks much!!

Our design team stuck with the 1320 for ease of manufacturing. Had they opted for the 1900 a new rotor housing would be required. The goal was to get to production ASAP.

As for calibration/tuning, I can't provide specifics since this is proprietary info. However I can touch on some of your questions:
  • The EGR is taken into account especially since it is required for the EO.
  • Cam phasing has been adjusted to optimize combustion stability throughout the RPM range and optimize peak performance.
  • TCM updates are also included to improve overall drivability. I believe Edelbrock was the first and still the only supercharger manufacturer that even offers TCM updates for the JK as well.
  • Boost and accel pedal input are generally tied together in a positive displacement supercharger however we still utilize a vacuum controlled bypass actuator which mitigates response at low pedal percentages.
  • All OBD functions are retained like stock.
