Adding a RIPP Supercharger to "Addiction"!

Time to give "Addiction" a little boost in performance!

The RIPP Supercharger system, along with RIPP long tube headers and Flowmaster "Hush Power" resonator exhaust system, arrived yesterday evening and will begin the installation today! :beer:

Be sure to install the air filter aluminum housing before installing the supercharger....as you can see in the following pictures there is not much wiggle room, enough not to be concerned about the sensor and spacing of the supercharger but not enough to manuever the canister install once the supercharger is mounted:






Intercooler is installed:




Drive belt is in place along with the supercharger securing bracket.




Air filter in place.....the yellow tag is connected to a plug bolt that will be removed in order to install a pressure release valve. The V3 superchargers are self-contained and this pressure release valve prevents too much pressure from building up in the oil case:





Final assembly of the Supercharger components:

Intercooler tightened up and grill back in place:




Stock exhaust heat shields trimmed and mounted to the RIPP Superchargers Long Tube Headers.....very little trimming and easy re-install:





Tightening the upper headers retaining bolts:




Still need to install the FlowMaster "Hush Power" Resonator, but for now everything else is complete. Everything functions exactly as it is designed with no error codes or warning lights! :Beer:

Just a little feedback for everyone who may be looking into a RIPP Supercharger for your Jeep.

This is a picture to show yall the results a week later after going through 3/4 tank of gas with the RIPP installed! This gas gauge reading includes in-town driving and approximately 15-18 miles of highway driving.

For a 6spd, the shift points and "ideal" RPMs with the RIPP for fuel efficiency on my JK is back down from 2500 (pre-RIPP intall) to 1500-1800 (post-RIPP install). (NOTE: prior to RIPP install 2500rpm was the ideal range with 4.10 gears on 315x70x17s to increase mpg from 11.5-12mpg in town to around 13.5mpg in town and from 13mpg to 15
15.5mpg on highway).

Overall I am VERY impressed with the system for both the power/performance gains as well as with better fuel efficiency during "regular" driving!
