They liked the look of the kit and had no issues with it. Only comments were in general that:
- a cold air feed would help (I pointed out that once moving the Air Temp is only 6-7C above ambient)
- one of the sensors go thought a rubber pipe not the stainless and it may be a point where boost could be lost (I pointed out that we are only talking 5-6psi).

One thing that are looking at is if I need to fit a shield over the Air Filter (something about legislation being changed on this), but apparently that would not be a big thing.

The testing was done on a drag strip (Western Sydney) and while they would not let "me" have a go (or sit in the car), I did "convince" them to do one 400m run. Nothing to special with a 4.2sec 0-100 (hot days, lots of weight and a couple of hours running the car) ... but at least I've now got some other figures on my SRT apps of:
- 200m = 8.1sec @ 147km/h (91mph)
- 400m = 12.6sec @ 180km/h (112mph)

...now all I need is to pass the emissions test tomorrow.

Hey Nathan,

Great thread! I've been following it for a few months now.

I'd been talking with RIPP about their SC for my 5.7L Overland, but I wasn't sure how much work I'd need to do to make it legal in Australia and how helpful they'd be in that regard. After following your thread I've been very impressed with their customer service and attention to detail!

While I'm still interested in the kit for the 5.7L, (my off-road Jeep) I've now decided to buy a 2015 Black SRT. I take delivery later this month, and passed on your experience, one of my first mods is going to be the RIPP SC.

A few questions...

Did the engineers tell you whether all of these test would need to be performed again for each vehicle? Or would certain tests, like the braking only need to be done for the first vehicle?

Now that you've passed the tests, is the next step getting your official mod plate, or are there other steps that need to be done?

Has adding the SC effected your insurance at all?

Has RIPP mentioned whether they thought exhaust mods would help increase performance very much? I'd been planning to install some Kooks headers, high flow cats and a Corsa exhaust.

Thanks!

Cheers,
Bill

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Welcome to SC SRT fun! You will love it

To answer your Q:
- They did say at one point they may be able to re-use my braking tests but that was only verbal and I don't know if it would be transferable to QLD. You would need to give them a call. It is all a crock - as if a SC changes how the Jeep will break from any given speed or load.
- I'm waiting for the Engineers to tell me what to do next in regards of the RMS rego stuff so will update when I have it done. I "think" I just have to take their certification in but don't know if they then just update their computer system or issue a physical plate.
- I'm with AAMI at present but they will not renew my insurance so will go with Just Cars (also owned by AAMI.....) and the costs is about $1Kpa for me so about the same.
- I remember a post from RIPP about one of their installs have a full exhaust / headers done and that it got some more power. Better check with them on the tune but at the end of the day there is only so much additional power you can put down before something breaks!

Look forward to hearing how you go
Thanks
Nathan

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

I got some "colder" air on my early morning drive to CBR (about 20C air intake) and it was much more keen! I pulled a couple of 3.7 0-100 but it hit the limiter on one of the gear changes both times and lost a heap of go. I even got some wheel spin from my second launch (and all just using stock Launch Control!!!!) From my previous experience I lost a couple of tenths with this so would be down around the 3.5 with a different tune..... but I did not have the InTune plugged in at the time so no logs to send . Will try to grab one tomorrow if conditions were right.

It felt much much more urgent

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

On the topic of Cold Air, I notice that with the stock install - the engine intake temp is around 5-7C (plus or minus a bit) from ambient air temp when moving (even at modest speed). One of my 3.7sec runs was after 2.5 hours of freeway driving, the same as one after a cold start so engine/trans temp is not a factor (both around 20C intake temps). My previous efforts had much higher intake temps (say 40+C) which saps lots of urge and was due to low spead driving and sitting on the side of the road prior to launch.

The Air Filter sits in the Engine bay and to me is perfectly fine sucking cold air when moving but if you are just sitting expect your intake temp to be much higher.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Far out, 3.7 seconds 0~100kph is fast. To put that in some perspective, that is a faster 0~100kph time (just) than the top of the line Aston Martin V12 Vanquish at 3.8 seconds. That however is about the only time you'd think the SRT gets the nod however apart from when it comes time to towing something heavy or carrying 5 in comfort .

I seriously can't wait. I've not looked forward to the xmas break so much as I am now since I was 7.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

1) Got a log of another 3.7 run hitting the limiter and have sent it to RIPP.

2) Also the certifier just said, "After reviewing all applicable Australian Design Rules, Motor Traffic Regulations, Vehicle Standard Bulletins and Vehicle Standards Information documentation, I am satisfied to certify the vehicle with the installed air filter system." So all good!

3) On my run to CBR and back I got 12.5l/100km there and 10.2l/100km back

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

You've just been using standard LC for these 3.7 sec runs you've been getting?

Excellent work. Comforting to know the path should be clear to get this legally on the road.

That economy seems much closer to stock doesn't it?

Have been meaning to get verification on whether or not the RIPP tune disables MDS?

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Yup just std LC for the 3 x 3.7sec.

Also the economy seemed about the same as what I've previously seen to and from CBR (but each trip is different). I'm pretty sure MDS is being used as at times as you see the consumption as low as 4-5l/100km and other time it is around 11-12l/100km on what looks like similar (or pretty similar) flattish road. No idea how it picks when to do MDS. It would be good to know what the specs are for MDS to kick in (eg under some rev, load, speed gear etc etc combo)

Hey Nathan,

Thanks for the info!

I'm definitely excited to take delivery. I figure I'll wait until 1000km or so before installing the SC. That should give some time to break in the engine, and give it a little while to make sure everything is 100%, before I possibly void my engine warranty.

I'm going back and forth about the exhaust mods. A few extra ponies would be nice, along with a bit more of a growl at WOT. But if it only adds 15hp or something like that, it doesn't really seem worth it. I suppose if it adds another 40-50hp I'd be happy.

I definitely don't want to start breaking things. From my understanding the transmission can handle about 700 lb ft. of torque. I was also worried about drone, but I've heard the Corsa exhaust keeps this to a minimum and new for 2015 is a noise cancelling system that uses the audio system to cancel outside noise.

Wow... 3.7 1-100km is wicked fast. if you're able to get 3.5 1-100km with an updated tune and colder weather that is really impressive!

Are you running stock tyres?

Cheers,
Bill

Great news on the fuel economy. That is very respectable for that kind of performance. MY 5.7L Overland gets far worse.

Cheers,
Bill

I'd be curious to know this as well. My understanding was the RIPP tune disabled it.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

I changed the tires for Hankook Ventus but simply as the ride on those run flats is more than firm... and you have a spare so why bother?

I also changed rims for some in "brake dust grey" as I could not be bothered trying to clean the Goliaths every two days.

Apart from that it is stock!
