Re: RIPP 3.6 Cherokee Project Another World First

Just an observation but the W5A580 seems to be able to handle a lot more torque than the 3.6 can put out even boosted.

ps I thought much of the power increase for a boosted engine comes from a bigger chamber (lower compression) allowing a larger charge with the same max cyl pressure. Without that and/or direct injection the max power is going to be limited by detonation.

Is the w5a580 the 5 speed trans?

You are correct that you can obtain more power with low compression by running higher boost. You will still get good power from 5-8 lbs of boost safely with our compression. I am curious to see how much but if the get the 340whp, that would be really good.

When kits are new we welcome local installs for testing purposes, keep an eye on our threads and social media for info.

Once you start seeing pics of a blower hung on the engine and dyno shots reach out to the shop and see where we stand for on going testers like yourself info.

That's the plan - Our 3.6 Wrangler kit is very popular, no reason the WK2 3.6 shouldn't come together nice and tight.

Re: RIPP 3.6 Cherokee Project Another World First

The V8 options is an additional ~$3,500. How would this new kit perform against a V8 when it comes to pricing, power and warranty-related issues?

The V8 option (5.7L) vs the pentastar for me was a difference of 10grand. We get destroyed on vehicle costs here in Canada.

Going by the JK crew with the pentastar kit, it seems to be a very reliable kit
