Edelbrock is now making Magnuson Supercharger kits for small blocks, I can imagine that the jeep V8 Market would supply demand for these kits for AMC applications, maybe its time to start another email campaign to vic!! All they'd really have to make is the manifold for the magnusonblower-how hard could THAT be LOL!!.

What email from the edelbrock site do we use?? Anyone know any big jeep sites that I can start a thread on to tap that market for the campaign?  I suppose if we get everyone here and on amccars.net to send the email it would get there attention again and this time edelbrock already knows the parts will sell, I bet they have sold tons of air gaps and aluminum heads by now!!  That blower manifold should be very easy for them to make.

This is something I think edelbrock would be VERY receptive to!    If they could make aluminum heads this should be a piece of cake, I bet they would sell more of the supercharger kits for AMC than they would aluminum heads-easier to install , WAY more power, awesome looks.  For edelbrock the jeep market would be a no brainer for this the AMC  Muscle car market would also be a great target for a supercharger kit.  I cant think of any other product right now for AMC V8's that has as much potential as a bolt on supercharger package.

I jsut sent and recieved back correspondence from edelbrock Arty Feles Vice president of product research and development and they are going to discuss the possibility internally of a supercharger kit for AMC.  He responded right away.  I will also post a copy of the email I sent them. Please start sending emails to arty to get this campaing rolling for a bolt on magnuson supercharger kit!! Afeles@edelbrock .com. Be sure to let him know how much the amc community appreciates all they have done for the jeep and amc hobby!!!

 I havent done a search for that, but all this supercharger kit will need is a manifold and they are already making new intake manifolds for AMC, it should nt be very hard or take much development for edelbrock to make the manifold for the Magnuson supercharger to bolt on! They could probably develope a supercharger kit faster since they already have the superchargers and they are already making AMC manifolds.  They never made water pumps before so that might take longer, but you could certaily mention that in the email for this campaign!

Yes, mailto:edelbrock@edelbrocktech.com - edelbrock@edelbrocktech.com
 
Then some place on your e-mail put Attn. tech manager.
 
The Tech manager will insure it get's noticed and talked about by the right people. The Tech and Sales dept. need to see there is a demand before anyone will even talk about a new project.
Cool

Arty Feles   Afeles@edelbrock .com

Can we keep this in one place since there are now two threads basically the same. This isn't a technical question or how-to, so really should come under general discussion................

Yes you are right, "the squeeky wheel does get the oil", but the Sales/Tech dept. calls the shots, and Arty is not the biggest of AMC fans at Edel. I'm not saying not to send suggestions to him, I just know that e-mails to the Tech dept. will actually do some good.
For what it's worth, that's my 2 cents! (but hey what do I know) Confused
Cool

OOPS, maybe I wasn't supposed to say that here - although with his last messages, someone could have easily figured it out, I mean, how many others know where to write or who would pay attention?
Sorry, Dennis, if I tipped your hand or let the cat out.

As far as an engine mod, it would be a great option to have. If you look at their website they got over 500 HP and over 500 ft lbs of torque on a mild 350 chevy, imaging what a 360 would do, or a 401!  Full time on demand power is hard to beat.  The 2009 Corvette is going to be supercharged and make 620 horsepower.

E-mailing me won't really help much as I'm already sold on the idea, and I don't make the big decisions. When we have our new products meetings I'll be pushing for it. I'm always suggesting and pushing for new AMC V8 stuff. It tough to convince upper managment to do anyting for cars with engines that haven't been built for many years. We are lucky that the Jeep used the AMC V8 as that argument holds some weight. I can (and do) make suggestions (plant the seeds) for new products, but it's your guys letters and e-mails that bring to light there is a market out there. I like to see the right people receiving these requests and seeing there is a demand. For years I had suggested and pushed for aluminum AMC Cyl. heads, but it was all of the e-mails and letters from the AMC and Jeep comunities that made it happen.
I'm just trying to help us all. 
Cool
Dennis

Here is a good link to a dyno test using a very mild 350 with the magnuson roots supercharger that edelbrock is putting together for chevies.  It made 503 horsepower on 8.5 : 01 compression!! Iron heads, and a not very exciting cam and cast pistons!!.  That is an ideal supercharger for a 343-401 AMC!!!  Supercharging has improved quite a bit in the past few years, this little bad boy cranked out 114 Ft lbs more than the base line 350 it was installed on.  The edelbrock kit includes a pre-calibrated 800 CFM carb but a 750 double pumper was used by car craft.  Enjoy and send those emails to edelbrock!!

Feel free to post this on amccars.net forum tooWink
 
 Also if you want to hear what one of these superchagers sound like watch this video @ 46 seconds you can really hear the supercharger whine-an AMX-javelin-scrambler-machine-etc etc would be WICKED with one of these kits!

I started drooling when I saw the first Magnacharger in Car Craft earlier this year. Started hoping against all hope that they'd come up with an AMC intake & drive system. That would be super sweet!

there are two threads, so this one is locked.
Please, since this is the same topic, keep it in the "amc chat" section in the other thread.
