A good supercharger is the only reasonable way to make significant power.

A tune can gain a little power and can certainly change the way the truck drives. You should be very careful with who you allow to tune your truck of course.

We haven't seen any exhaust except ours add power and it's really easy to get terrible drone. Ours is the only "full" exhaust (replaces the Y-pipe).

We also haven't seen an air filter or intake add power, even when combined with the blower. The AFE is the only one that could because of the little port you can open. We modify the stock airbox when installing the blower.

A pedal controller won't make more power but they will change the way the truck drives so that could be worth the low cost.

So the only serious power adder is a blower. Ours adds 100hp and makes the truck much nicer to drive. We can then add 20hp more with a smaller pulley, which is a great value.

Edelbrock will presumably be producing in larger quantities and using cheaper parts, so I expect theirs to be slightly less expensive than ours. Edelbrock's supercharger has an Eaton 1740 rotor, which isn't as nice as our 1900. They'll have to drive it harder and it'll be less efficient, less linear and put more heat into the charge air. Their components will also be cheaper. That's not to say it looks bad at all, in fact I'd say it has the potential to be almost as good as ours if they get the tuning right. It won't change our position though. To make a significantly cheaper blower you'd have to make huge sacrifices in quality.

You say that you modify the stock airbox when you install the blower...I opted for the GMC Power Package which puts in a GMC Performance Cold Air Intake. I am looking at getting a supercharger within the next year but am a bit concerned about having to give up an expensive part to make it work. Can you install the blower with the GMC Performance Cold Air Intake or do I have to re-install the stock airbox? Also, I am thinking about adding a Pedal Commander...is this something that can work with the Supercharger install, and if so is it something that I should add on before I get the Supercharger installed so that you can include it when doing any tuning?

Our Mallett Supercharger will work with your GMC Performance Cold Air Intake, it is not mandatory to reinstall the stock airbox. You can add a Pedal Commander at any time before or after supercharger, it does work with the supercharger installation, no special calibration is needed. We have many customers with the Pedal Commander on their trucks.
Feel free to contact us directly [email protected] 216-905 0029. If you would like an installation manual, PM or email us your email address and we will get that out to you.
