RIPP supercharged 6+ month update/review

I have now been RIPP supercharged for about 7 months and 12k miles. I still have the same opinion from the day I got it back in April. The car is so much more fun and exciting to drive. I drive over 100 miles per day and I could not be happier with the performance from the kit. I am a tester for RIPP and they have been great through the whole process. The look that I get when I pull next to an SRT and you come out on top to a motor nearly twice the size is priceless. The kit has been reliable to the point where my wife drives it whenever and wherever and my biggest issue is trying to keep her foot off the floor. Gas mileage is anywhere between 18-27mpg. I get 20 all around but will hit up to 27 when taking long trips(far better than stock). I have a total of 51k miles on my jeep and its holding up just like the day I bought her(except the rattles me squeaks from be lowered). Those looking for some more power and aren't afraid to tinker, you won't regret it. I would do it all over again if I had the choice. When I bought the 3.6 it was only because I couldn't find a hemi with color and options I wanted. I regretted the 3.6 after 48 hours and knew I needed a little more power. My jeep now puts the 5.7 to shame from every angle and will outrun a stock to slightly modified SRT. I have tested it against both wk1 and wk2 and had two very disappointed friends.

The kit is $6299 and install will run you anywhere from $600-1500 depending on location and shop.

Yeah...that's pretty spot on ...I paid $1300 I think to have mine installed...although after install you do want to factor in the cost of running Super Unleaded and you may want to add a BOOST and A/F gauge like me and GMGC2014 did as well...it really helps you keep an eye on the boost(for leaks) and the Air/Fuel mixture to prevent any leaning

WOT with Ripp supercharger = priceless.

Awesome to see sub 5 sec 0-60, but still wouldn't come out on top of the SRT, mine ran a 4.4 sec stock.

I agree though, if you pulled up beside me and showed that kind of speed I'd be hooting for sure 👍

Re: RIPP supercharged 6+ month update/review

Jb 15 srt,

Remember that's stage one kit running those times. The new kit is running another 70whp in 90+ degree ambient temps. I will eat a stock wk2 srt for breakfast lunch and dinner. 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.

All good mate, we are all friends here right??

You should post your times with the stage 2 on then I would have kept quiet had I known.

Jersey might be a stretch for me from Downunder

I hear you and agreed all good. I'm just waiting now to do an official run on a 1/4 mile run at the track. I don't have a g-tech and don't have a reason to buy one. When the tracks open back up in the spring I'll send the time slips.

That's why I've been anxiously awaiting for stage 2 to be released to the public

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