Anyone rocking the RIPP Supercharger? (3.6)

Hey Jeepers!


Looking for feedback from anyone who has been running the RIPP supercharger on their pentastar wrangler.
Ups, downs, installation difficulty, performance I'd like to hear it all!

Been running one for about a week now. The jeeps my daily driver that gets wheeled about once a month for a weekend. Can't say enough about the transformation on the street/highway. Haven't had it on the trails yet.

My original plan was to go from my 4.10's to 4.88's but I'm now thinking that may be too much and I might just go up to 4.56's.. Either way loving it so far..

It was installed in their shop so no problems/issues there..

I'm also curious to hear about the install...RIPP's website says it is completely plug and play. At risk of sounding like a complete n00b, does this supercharger kit require any upgraded engine internals? Like pistons, piston rods, etc?

There's another RIPP thread going on. You might want to go read through it.

Got 10000 miles on mine so far. 2012 6sp manual 4.10s on 315 duratracs. Installed it myself. Install went smooth. Tons of power. Mpgs went up by ~1.5

no internal motor mods required with canned tune. I believe its at 6lbs of boost.

fyi i also have the dreaded "AA" head. I have 41000 on the jeep so far. Runs strong and quiet with no tick whatsoever. Doesnt use a drop of oil either. Im very impressed with the 3.6 thus far. havnt taken it to the dyno yet but i have seen (youtube) 317 rwhp with same setup as mine. I believe that was the canned tune from RIPP with no further tunning. Im also running a completly stock drivetrain right down to the factory clutch.

No upgraded internals. Logged about 2500 supercharged miles so far. Runs great.
