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!

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.

 Also send an email to art feles-he is VP of Marketing and development-he is the guy that would be getting feedback from the sales and tech people.
 
Arty Feles   Afeles@edelbrock .com
