Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Welcome to the never ending cycle. Mine is 100% stock at the moment but my other car is heavily modified. Not sure if I want to go down that path with the SRT just yet.


I know of one SC SRT that's currently being re-built as ringlands decided they wanted to divorce the pistons. Lasted about 2,000 k's

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

The beast is much better post changing the Spark Plugs - Just did another trip Syd-Cbr-Syd and got a 11.0 l/100km there and 8.9 back (full loaded and with 4 of us + luggage) and just did a PB of 3.6 0-100 this morning (22deg cent and just using std LC) .

I'm still getting a Rough Idle and CEL P0172 however and after some googling it looks like I need to try:
1) cleaning my K&N filter +
2) cleaning my Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor - EDIT: I don't even know if our Trucks have a MAF Sensor to clean!

I'll report back on this!

Also any other RIPP's in Oz?

There would be if they replied to emails. Their pre sales service has been rubbish

Great to hear the beast is firing again after just a change of plugs. Was a bit nervous for you there. Will be interested to hear how you get on with the rough idle.

3.6sec 0~100 is insane. I finally managed to give mine a few real runs and managed a 4.6 on a cool day at sea level which felt quick to me. Can't imagine what a full second quicker would be like.

Any issues with the transmission at all? For some reason I had always thought the ZF auto had a max input of 700HP, obviously that figure is actually 700nm. Doesn't leave much room to play over the stock 625nm.

I ended up having to put my SC purchase on hold until updates for the 2015 model come through. Other than that not sure what other SRT RIPP's are out there. Pretty sure Mark's workshop have done a couple, think there are a couple in Brisy in progress too.

Have to agree somewhat with Luster's comment however. I've now been in contact with three performance shops regarding SC kits and RIPP have been by far the most difficult to get consistent communication from. No doubt it is because they are so busy, bit of a pity really as I still think they offer the best kit for a stock SRT.

We'll see how 2015 goes...

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

You would think the RIPP sales team would be keen to flog as many as possible!

Shifting is fine, though in Auto it seems to take a bit to "learn" when to shift after any TSB update. I did read a blurb from RIPP about working back from the Max Trans Spec to get their boost of around 5-6psi to be "safe"
-----------------------------

I've put my older smaller K&N airfilter back on as I clean it (the original one from the Ripp Kit without the plumb back fitting).

I noticed there was some black oil between around the throat of the SC where it meets the Air Filter. I cleaned it out, reset the rich code and so far it has not come back and seems to idle better... but we will see.

FYI - I'm not sure where this oil is from (but would explain a Rich Code). The K&N Filter uses a Red Oil Spray, and I've checked the oil in the SC and it is red as well (and looks clean). I check the oil level in the SC but I'm not sure if I'm reading the oil level correctly as the dip stick is on an angle but it is at least max (first oil change for the SC is 2,500Miles) so I'll get that changed and checked by the dealer in Jan.

Yes it's a shame the RIPP pre sales service hasn't been a bit better. I'm sure they're very busy, but if you're going to spend those kind of dollars on a kit and void the engine warranty on your pride and joy, you'd like to feel pretty sure about your purchase. I know a fair bit about cars, but a bit of hand holding would still go a long way in my book. I contacted them regarding the 5.7L kit for my Overland many months ago and received the same sort of responses then as well.

I'm still considering the RIPP kit, but I've also begun to look at a very impressive kit put together by Skip @ Demon Performance.

Cheers,
Bill

I second that... 3.6 0-100 is crazy fast!

I'm curious about this as well. I was reading a thread here about a twin turbo install on a SRT that was producing 800+hp and they reported the trans was holding up fine, but I'd still be a bit nervous.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

I'm still getting my RIPP unit installed by Marks Workshop. Been O/S for couple of weeks and Marks Workshop is shut due to holidays. Waiting to ring them next week to get an update on whether my kit has arrived and when I can book mine in for the install.....

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Looking forward to hearing how you go!

----------

On the Rough Idle - I've tinkered the last couple of days with the air filters, plumb back, BOV settings, even pulled the MAP sensor to check it out (looks fine), but no dice. I've grabbed some logs and sent them to RIPP to have a look at when they are back from holidays.

In the mean time is there anyting else I should look at?

Thanks
Nathan

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Just had the dealer do all the new ECM flashes for the car and I've now got an e-mail from RIPP saying a new tune is out so I've started that flash process. Will let you know how it all goes.
