More than 3,000 new products were showcased at the 2019 SEMA Show; more than 2,400 companies were exhibiting and about 1,500 feature vehicles were on display serving as eye candy to draw potential buyers into booths for a closer look at the latest merchandise that the automotive aftermarket has to offer. All of this is packed tightly into 1.2 million square feet of Convention Center real estate, and this does not include another million square feet of additional features and attractions located around the main halls, in the neighboring Westgate Resort and outdoors.

Edelbrock’s video recap of SEMA 2019

For Edelbrock, a founding member of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), preparation for this show begins early in the year with a team dedicated to building displays, coordinating products and selecting vehicles for the display. This year, Edelbrock featured five custom cars and trucks, all showing what can be done with Edelbrock parts under the hood.

New Edelbrock Superchargers at SEMA 2019
One of the three new blowers that Edelbrock had in the New Products Showcase was the Stage 1 kit for 2017-20 Chevy Colorados and GMC Canyons.

In the South Hall truck display was Pete Palma’s 2016 Jeep Wrangler JKU built by Rebel Off Road in Laguna Hills, CA. Pete’s Edelbrock-supercharged Jeep is no stranger to dirt and was driven from California to Las Vegas for the show. Pete says that the 50-state emissions-legal system restored power that was being lost to due to bigger wheels and tires, and heavy accessories that have been added. Read more about Jeep JK and JL superchargers here.

Jason Aldean designs custom 68 Ford Bronco
Country music star Jason Aldean is all into trucks and he showed it by designing this custom 1968 Ford Bronco for Outlaw Energy. Outlaw will be giving this truck away later in 2020. READ MORE about the Bronco HERE.

Here’s what it looks like under the hood of the Jason Aldean-designed Outlaw Energy Bronco. Power comes from an Edelbrock Performer 347 Crate Engine #45270 topped by a Pro-Flo 4 EFI kit #35930. Note that Edelbrock Crate Engines may show up as “out of stock” because each one is built to order. For more info on Crate Engines, call 888-799-1135 or message us via Live Chat on our website.

Outlaw Energy Drinks brought their custom 1968 Ford Bronco to the Edelbrock booth at SEMA. This trick truck was designed by country music star Jason Aldean and is powered by an Edelbrock Performer RPM 347 Crate Engine topped by a Pro-Flo 4 EFI system. Outlaw will be giving this Bronco away sometime next year (see contest details here).

Showcasing the new Edelbrock Supercharger for 2017-20 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups with the second-generation LGZ 3.6L V6 engine was the bright red Lingenfelter ZR-2 Colorado. But the biggest attraction in the Edelbrock display was Kevin Huth’s LS-swapped 1973 Toyota Celica called the “Tokyo Trans-Am” built by JH Restorations from Ontario, Canada. This retro-styled first-generation Celica is powered by a 5.3L LS that was scavenged from a Canadian Saab SUV. The engine was bored out to a 5.7 and outfitted with Edelbrock E-CNC Heads, a Rollin’ Thunder cam, Cross-Ram intake, Pro-Flo XT Throttle Bodies, Billet Fuel Rails, 35lb Injectors and a Pro-Flo 4 ECU and Harness Kit. The Celica not only turned out to be a surprise hit of the show, but it also made the SEMA Battle of the Builders Top 40 list and Top 10 Imports.

Among the 3,000 entries over in the SEMA New Products Showcase were three Edelbrock Supercharger Systems including the new Colorado/Canyon V6 kit #15180, the new Stage 1 kit #15995 for 2016-20 Chevy Camaro V6 engines, and the potent Stage 2 Supercharger for 2019-20 Ford Mustang 5.0L Coyote engines. Two new products at SEMA that are not yet listed in the Edelbrock catalog are a Pro-Flo 4 EFI kit for AMC V8 engines, and a new Victor EFI Throttle Body designed to fit most of the Victor and Pro-Flo 4 EFI-style manifolds or any other 4150-style flange and standard bolt spacing.

Edelbrock introduced this new Pro-Flo 4 EFI for American Motors V8 engines. Kit #35660 is for 1967-69 AMC 343/390 and kit #35650 is for 1970-91 AMC 304/360/390/401 engines.

We found no shortage of A90 Supra builds and “brodozers” in and around the halls of SEMA 2019, but we managed to cover most of the two million square feet of grounds during the week and photograph our favorite vehicles and personalities at the show. Scroll through our gallery below and be sure to visit us at PRI booth 1713 in Indianapolis, December 12-14!
