I'm not trying to start a war but it is a completely different truck with stage 2. I'm only running 7 degrees of timing and it feels so much stronger. I have now lined up against multiple wk2 srt jeeps and haven't lost yet and some by a long shot from a roll. From a dig I play a bit of catch up but will pass you by 65-70. Believe or not I can only show you if you come to north jersey for a little fun.

Is 0-60 is still slower than the stock SRT on stage 2?

Re: RIPP supercharged 6+ month update/review

Yes slightly due to torque advantage.

With my stage 1 kit at least I'll lose to an srt with dignity ..

So what ya'll doing for brakes and suspension? 'Cause I hear all this gym talk of how my smaller (engine) size is more pleasurable (at WOT) than your bigger (engine) size.

But for an uneducated plebeian like me, the SRT comes as a complete package, with its stiffened suspensions, sway bars, and big big brakes. What are you folks doing about the other items that need upgrades ?

I think at least someone here purchased Willwoods but I don't know if it is one of you two.

I can't speak for anyone else....but I built up my suspension and braking system before I even installed the Supercharger

I did the following enhancements to my suspension/braking:

2014 SRT Brembo brake Calipers Front and Rear
Hawk Sector 27 Cross drilled/Vented rotors Front and rear
Hawk Pads
Stainless steel Braided brake lines front and rear
SRT Sway Bars front and rear
Black Ops Heavy Duty Sway bar End links
Road Magnet Mid Level Springs
Bilstein Shocks Front/rear


So pretty much...the SRT suspension/Braking system has nothing on mine...at least that I know of

Damn, you can start a fight in just about any thread, can't you?

The guys here are strictly talking about power to the wheels and straight line performance against an SRT. Nobody is saying they can beat one on Laguna Seca. Being fun to drive is the most important factor in my mind, and it seems these dudes think the same way. I think my Jeep drives pretty well on the street, but it would be a hell of a lot more fun with another 100whp, which a blower is perfect for. I'm not taking it to a road course anytime soon, it's a 5300lb SUV. I just want power and good road dynamics.

However, clearly Ajag has addressed everything you came here to 'tease' him about.

No. I have the ability to start a fight in every thread but that is neither my intention nor my track record.

Clearly AJAG did it right. It is not my intention to tease anyone. A while ago (and you can search) I asked RIPP if they offered a brake upgrade kit as a companion to their power adder. The answer was not. I am certainly curious to see what people do about it because any engine power increase should be matched by a corresponding increase in the brake stopping power. And some of the suspension/brake upgrades might interest me as well, despite not committing to the supercharger.

Re: RIPP supercharged 6+ month update/review

Honestly, there is no reason to upgrade the brakes because of a power adder. You can accelerate faster when you have more power, but what reason does he need to stop faster than he could before? Unless he's using the power to drive around at 120mph all the time. I doubt you'll be pushing the stock brakes bad enough on the street to fade them, and even then a pad upgrade will probably cover it.

Brake upgrades are necessary when:

-the vehicle weight is increased
-the wheel/tire outer diameter and/or weight are increased
-the vehicle is run on a track
-you tow a lot of weight and often

Honestly guys ..the only reason I did the brembos was for the look

And they're not a lot of money ..so if you can afford it why not then?

That's how I see it at least

But here's my point on it.

If you add an s/c chances are you'll be using the power. Ajag has already said he's ran an srt. That there says he's using the boost. Therefore upgraded brakes make perfect sense. Go fast, stop more RELIABLY and safer. No telling how fast his ride truely is now, but personally I'd feel safer and more confident in knowing I have the brakes to reel it down. Plus there's more to it then that. It also means shorter stopping distances. That helps big when you get that one idiot that pulls out in front and you need to panic stop

Nice upgrade! Now I really want to put a stage 2 on the V8...

I have talked to the wife about it, she is ALMOST on board with getting the RIPP kit. She has to approve since it is her car...

I would upgrade the suspension and brakes and I haven't added any power. They handle like crap and the brakes fade quickly.

Exactly. The stock setup is "just" adequate for stock and normal driving. The brakes, oh them brakes, suffer badly with any real hard driving
