I purchased a 2012 GS Convertible M6 new in December and have been lurking on the forum since. After hearing the positive commentary on the Edelbrock E-Force supercharger I elected to take the plunge.
I live in Miami and investigated the local installers and solicited quotes for doing the job. Ultimately. I ended up purchasing the kit from DynoSteve here on the forum (otherwise known as Steve Leerentveld at RDP Motorsport in Ohio. 440-358-5500) and had the installation done by Rob Koeppel (Forced Fuel Injection in Miami. 305-235-6160).
I can't speak highly enough about either Rob or Steve and their respective companies. About a week after placing the order a big Edelbrock box (about 4' x 4' x 2') arrived at my office. Every single part required for the install was in there. Rob and his crew did a meticulous (bordering on neurotic) job of the installation. I received the car back with not a scratch nor a fastener not re-installed.
The real beauty is what the E-force has done to the car. I mostly drive the car to work and had enjoyed how the original LS3's low end torque sponsors gratifying lazy shifting. I launch in 1st. shift to 3rd about 10MPH. and then 5th about 35MPH. The low end torque makes for a gratifying feel without a lot of shifting work. I didn't want to lose the bottom end and the E-force delivered in spades. Low end torque is improved and the car is simply content to tool around a parking lot or on the road anywhere above 500 RPM without chugging. fussing. or complaining one bit. It is amazing!
Reality is in my normal driving the extra power does not come into play. The extra torque makes the car more gratifying but it doesn't feel any faster when on my typical trip the engine rarely exceeds 2000 RPM. Get this beast on the highway. downshift to 3rd. mash on the throttle. and all of sudden you realize what 600HP feels like. It feels good. The speedo more resembles the tach. With a brief mash on the accelerator. the car vaults past 120MPH effortlessly. Obviously. exploiting the new found race in the car too often won't lead to anything good. but it is sure nice to know it's there if you need it.
It was near 90 degrees here in Miami this weekend. I drove the car to South Beach for lunch and a drink. Did about 20 miles on the highway before hitting bumper-bumper for the last 3-4 miles. Temperatures crept up to 212 and just stayed there. AC on the whole time.
I couldn't be more pleased with Edelbrock. RDP. or Forced Fuel for their parts in helping me build the most gratifying super car a fellow can own for not too many $.
