Here is a little background on this really cool event!

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputies Motorsports program were challenged in Las Vegas at a race by the Edmonton Police Service Blue Line Racing organization.  They invited us up to race them at the International Hot Rod Association Rocky Mountain Nationals. They were represented by (3) cars from the Edmonton Police Service, and (2) cars from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  We won 7 out of 7, of the heads up races.  The Canadian police are great competitors.

Here is a little background information on the LASD Motorsports Program!

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputies Motorsports program is a public outreach organization developed  and administered by Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputies on their off duty time.  Although not an official function of the Los Angeles County  Sheriff’s Department, LASD Motorsports has long been recognized as a valuable public relations and recruitment resource for the department.”

753HP!! Enforcer Supercharged Small Block Chevy

July 18th, 2014

Edelbrock engineers decided to test the potential of the new Enforcer supercharger. So they took a 350 cubic inch Chevy and threw in a forged rotating assembly, cam, then topped it off with Victor Jr. heads #77629; this setup resulted in a 9.5:1 compression ratio. Finally, they fed the SBC some 91 octane gas, and turned up boost to 14 PSI by swapping the stock pulley with a smaller 2.75” pulley. The results were astounding! The Enforcer Supercharged SBC pushed out 753 HP and 636 ft-lbs of Torque.

Anything But SLO

June 11th, 2014

Check out the this video sent to us from the 2014 Cal Poly SLO Formula SAE race team. The race team consists of students from the engineering division at California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo in California. Edelbrock supplied this team with Russell Performance Plumbing products to help get their car on the track. Here is their latest race report from Andrew Cunningham, the team lead.

“The first event takes place at Buttonwillow Raceway’s kart track and includes straight line acceleration runs and driver training. Next, we traveled to an autocross race with the Golden Gate Lotus Club near Monterey. For those of you that may not know, an autocross race consists of a course defined by traffic cones on a large tarmac. Participants race against the clock and have time added for any cones hit. At the Lotus Club event, we took second place in the morning and first place in the afternoon. If you are wondering, the car that beat us in the morning was a 33 horsepower, 200lb shifter kart. We look forward to more competition coming once finals are over and to summertime sponsor appreciation events.”

Good luck… we look forward to hearing more!

____________________________________________________________

It’s that time of the year again… the Hot Rod Power Tour is right around the corner. We’re in the final stages of getting ready. As you can see in the video below, we’re shipping two of our company R&D cars to join in on the seven cities in seven days cruise.

Vehicles the Fun Team will be driving:

1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Concours Station Wagon

wagon 2014 Hot Rod Power Tour

Dubbed “Gold Member” by our online follwers, this wagon was added to the Edelbrock R&D fleet two years ago. It was originally purchased to help develop our E-Street throttle body style electronic fuel injection systems in late 2012. Since then, the small-block Chevrolet 350 has been replaced with a new LS3 powered by an Edelbrock Enforcer E-Force supercharger system. This Enforcer system has increased the LS3’s performance to a very streetable 604 horsepower and 536 ft-lbs. of torque, making this big boy move! It has one of our Universal EFI Sump Fuel kits (#3605) installed to help feed the fuel demands of this supercharger powerhouse engine combination.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

stingray 2014 Hot Rod Power Tour

The last time you guys saw this car was its debut on the floor of the 2013 SEMA show when we announced our LT1 E-Force supercharger for the Gen 5 engine platform. This Stingray now makes an impressive 624 horsepower and 600 ft-lbs. of torque, for an increase of 169 horsepower and 140 ft-lbs. of torque.

2012 Ford F-150

f 150 2014 Hot Rod Power Tour

This F-150 features an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger system (#1584). This truck has been custom tuned by Brenspeed. Giving it more power than the base kit, which upgraded the horsepower to 421 and the torque to 422 ft-lbs.

2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD

chevy hd 2014 Hot Rod Power Tour

This truck is used by our Midwest Sales team to haul our display trailer to events and shows. It features an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger system (#1579), which upgrades the horsepower to 407 and the torque to 422 ft-lbs. for improved towing performance.

Vic and Christi Edelbrock will also be autographing hats and posters each evening, so come out and get yours while they last.
