Ripp 3.6l supercharger

Hey guys...as you may know..I have supercharged my 3.6l and had awesome results...but I'm thinking of going to an srt so I may sell my supercharger setup

If anyone is thinking of buying a ripp system I'll let you come test mine out as I'm looking to potentially sell mine off ..I have this listed in the for sale section here

As its tuned now I can consistently get a 0-60 time of 4.6 sec

Re: Ripp 3.6l supercharger

Any dyno numbers? Just wondering. Other than the tuner and supercharger, any other mods like exhaust?

Thanks for your reply.

Thanks for your reply.
Start reading this thread and reconsider your options.
How much power you think the 3.6L pentatstar is capable of?

He posted in one or two other threads the actual numbers and detailed his quest for power. However, the thread above also details the demise of his engine, induced by...forced induction.

Yes, however, I wouldn't say the kit itself did the job. It's when you add more, and more, and more. Running the kit and canned tune as is, is probably more than safe. However, he wasn't running with power anywhere near what the kit came with.

Agreed but the owner knew he was pushing the limit of his stk. engine and transmission and wasn't totally surprised with the end-results........BOOM.

The biggest issue with an aftermartket supercharger on a non-MASS AIR vehicle with variable valve timing is drivability. It's going to take a good tuner some time (many visits) to get it perfect for all load conditions.

Dude, you are such a hater. Clearly the guy wasn't running a base supercharger kit. He was pretty much trying to grenade the engine with a ton of boost.

Sure, running a stock RIPP kit will put some added stress on the drivetrain, but based on the number of Pentastars in Wranglers running happily on this same kit, it's perfectly safe.

Re: Ripp 3.6l supercharger

The Pentastar might be a remarkable normally aspirated engine and would probably go down as a worthy successor it the famed Nissan VQ 35 DE engine. But it wasn't built to be supercharged. The engine itself may be built to be supercharged but it is not like that from the factory. Hence any boost more than a few psi is not going to keep it reliable.

I've seen enough blown SUBARU engines that come with forced induction from the factory to have an idea where the safe boost limit is on an aluminum engine block that was purpose built by the manufacturer. Our forum colleague was approaching or even exceeding boost levels on factory tunes on comparable forced induction factory engined. I commented on that elsewhere already in this forum.

I don't "hate". I admire him for trying, and Ripp for providing the kit. But I personally disagree with both Ripp's consideration of safe boost for the Pentastar and with the forum member's quest for more and more power by changing his pulleys.

FYI my SUBARU was stock from January 29 until August 5. After that everything else I did voided the power train warranty. That was in 2005. I still own it and knock on wood it is reliable, because I didn't pretend to have bought an STI but just a Legacy GT.

Re: Ripp 3.6l supercharger

I just want to post this for the record ..the base ripp stage 1 kit pushing 7-8lbs of boost worked really well for my stock block and tranny for over 12k hard miles over the course of 9 + months

I decided to see just how far I could take the stock block knowing that eventually I'd grenade it ....I joked with my installer all the time ..but wanting to see how far I could take it before it blew

I was able to reap some decent hp but even when it showed signs of peaking out I added more boost

Oh well..I'm not worried so I'm not sure why anyone else should be ..I just wanted to share my experiences but in no way should this represent badly on supercharging a 3.6l


I just wanted to see exactly how far I could take the stock setup ..now I know that a stock setup is good for up to 9lbs of boost and ~400whp before things get dicey

When I went to 13-14lbs it just tipped the threshold and grenaded

It is important to express, that to date, we have supercharger over 3000 3.6L Pentastar powers vehicles without incident. We proved the technology and tuning in the Wrangler market, and migrated it over to the WK2 program. Understanding our wrangler clients needs, reliability over absolute power. When your 15 miles deep in a trail, AAA is not coming to get you.
That is the reason more RIPP kits on Wranglers than any other kit on the market.

To that end, this one users quest to find the limit is just that. Completely outside of our included tune, or specifications.
What we strive to offer is an out the box plug in and forget additional 130+ wheel HP.
