Never had anyone ask me what's wrong with mine from the sound of the supercharger.....whenever I pull up somewhere and people are standing around, the first thing I get asked is "what engine did you put under that hood?!" When I tell them it's the 3.8L factory engine, they reply, "NO WAY IT'S FACTORY!" Then I let them in on the secret that it's RIPP Supercharged and that the excitement begins!

Are you planning on installing it or having a shop do it?

JeepOuray Currently running the RIPP SC on my 2012 rubicon at elevation and would like to discuss what others are experiencing.

I am at 5,200', 3 1/2" lift, 35" KM2's, and 4.88 gears

Overall love the way Jeep drives and sounds, but am experiencing a few very annoying problems and I would like to know if others are experiencing similar.

Problem #1: when first starting Jeep it typically bogs down in first and second gear. Best way to describe it is that it feels like the Jeep is bringing in more air then it can exhaust. Once Jeep has gone through the gears the problem goes away and Jeep drives fantastic. While I have learned to adapt it makes pulling out in traffic after startup an adventure at times.

Problem# 2: at random times when first starting Jeep wipers run (although they are off), all dash warning lights are active, and no dash gauges work. Problem is cleared by simply turning jeep off and restarting.

Overall a boosted 2012 is a great driving experience, but would sure value the feedback of others with blown 3.6l's at elevation.

We do offer an optional snorkel adapter, The trinity is fully functional and is used to upload our calibrations.

jeepinit i have had it on my 2013 jkur for several months now with magnaflow exhaust and unless you are stepping on it it sounds pretty much normal. Jet engine comes in to play when your foot goes down. have to admit foot is in it a lot as it is amazing

TheGrinch I ordered the 2014 Kit today! Chris with RIPP told me it was released today.

Thanks for the followup.

I'll keep everyone posted on the install once I receive it!

If yes, can the SC kit be purchased now for the 2014 and one just wait until the tune update is released for the 2014?

How much longer is the discount code gonna work?

I want one for my 2014 NOW!!!

Good work on the units so far!

If you try to use the code on their website now, you get this message: "Coupon code "RIPP36" is not valid. The coupon expired on Mon Sep 30 00:00:00 PDT 2013."

I really don't want to get rid of the vehicle. It looks awesome but I seriously I don't Use it for wheeling at all. I figure the price of the SC on sale now and $850 install would make it better to drive around. From what I been reading. I know it won't be that drastic of a change. But a little more power would be nice.

I had a hemi for a minute and that thing rolled. Can't and won't afford a swap. I guess I was just hoping to hear that a blown jeep is awesome. I think with more power these things can be sick.
I test drove an Sti while my wife's Legacy was getting serviced and I personally think they are torque poor compared to the JK 2012+. I could see a disappointment coming from the Amg. My wife's Touareg had some get up with the V8. I have had an array of Z28's and nice tuned Diesel trucks and I guess after the talk and driving the 3.8L, I was impressed with my purchase in the power category. I initially thought I would SC it but now have my doubts.

NFRs2000NYC If you don't wheel just stick 5.13s in your 10A and you should be pretty happy with 35s. If you are still not happy then consider a blower. Do the mods in the proper order. Sounds to me like you bought the wrong vehicle for your needs.
11-29-2013 09:45 PM
Lowerumble I don't know what to tell you. I have the SC and it performs just as I expected (with a few tuning issues still) and I am happy with it. But, I just don't think it fits the bill for what you are expecting of asking for. I think with your history of those quick cars, you are just bound for a little dissapointment if you throw on 35s at least... Maybe with stock size tires, it may feel quicker, or with a 35s and 4.88s, but then you are delving in even further. A blown jeep IS awesome, for what it is, but is never going to feel "sick". Maybe check what the used 10A market looks like and sell it yourself. I'll bet you would be stoked with a couple year old SRT Grand Cherokee. Now those things are SICK!

I don't think a supercharger and larger tires will make you change your perception of acceleration and speed. Maybe a supercharger by itself may help. You then have to consider the supercharger cost plus installation if you are not doing it yourself, and compare it with the difference of trading it in for something else or selling it and then getting what you want. As it stands, the supercharger costs roughly $6,000. Have you done the comparison already?

If you already are unhappy with the jeep I would not throw more money into it and definetely would not add 35s. Do you have 4.10s now? Stock I feel like the pentastar is easily up to the task of pushing the jeeo down the road. Add some more mods and you are just going to be more bummed. I assume this is your first time driving a jeep? Because the pentastar really does perform nicely compared to previuos attempts...
