Definitely sounds like you are heading in the right direction now Nathan.
Thanks for updates.

Well done to whoever at RIPP did the custom tune overnight. I'll post back some logs again.

3.8 felt great and has me wondering what time RIPP is targeting for the kit?

Thanks

What mods do you have Nath ?
I still think you should be getting better than that out of it, if the roads wet you should have better time due to wheel spin, Im stuck with a 2.9 best from doing one in the rain but i dont know how to remove that.

keep logging mate and sending back and forth. Have you had it dynoed or booked for a dyno run as yet mate ?

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

No other mods and just testing using Launch Control so far. It is 1 sec quicker than the same run prior to the install. More logs have been sent. It would be interesting to hear others time.

I also will also wait for the new BOV prior to emissions test, eng cert and at which point I may put it on a dyno if need be.

No problem Nathan, we appreciate you providing the data.

Our Shop tester with 2800 miles, stock Exhaust from the heads back on a cool night did a 3.5 0-60mph and a 12.02 1/4 mile without messing with the launch control as pointed out by Scott. Had we raised the launching rev limit to 3000rpm is would go much faster.








There are reports on a 11.79 1/4 mile from a RIPP powered 2014 SRT with headers and cat back. But again as weather cools we should settle is to an average on times. We've shipped lots of kits and they seem to be coming together a little at a time as guys report and we grab data to average our calibrations out we should find a realistic target for various combinations.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Thanks - I think 3.5 is a good goal and once it is all settled in I'll get more aggressive in the Launch.

I've attached a pic of the install and it is superb. Even the installers were very impressed by the layout being mm perfect (it looks factory to me). They are making a couple of notes on the install instructions but they to were first rate.

I also just did 400KM of mixed driving down the coast and the Jeep was great. My wife did a short drive an commented that it now feels much more "settled" post the install. She always thought the stock vehicle felt a bit "unpredictable" and was more comfortable driving it now! How good is that.

One thing I did notice having the Jeep on ACC was down a steep hill it would drop gears / increase revs to hold to the speed limit but of course as the revs build up so does the SC. No hard driving but overtaking and merging is very easy . These means the BOV opens and makes it's distinctive noise (the kids think it sounds like a bunch of babies screaming)... so the nick name of "Baby Eater" as been cemented. I'm kinda getting used to the noise it makes and if the VTA BOV was not illegal here in NSW then I'd probably keep it.

I also kept an eye on the Temp Gauges, and:
- Engine was 90 degrees Centigrade
- Trans was 90 degrees Centigrade (but I don't know what is "normal" for this one)
- Input Air Temp was 5 degrees Centigrade above ambient when on the free way and 10 degrees above in slower trafic which I think is much improved on my stock Air Box.
Good fun weekend.

Thanks
Nathan

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

On thing my installer said was that I should now change my Oil more often, is this recommended?

FYI - My installer was actually the Jeep Dealer's service centre in Artarmon. I picked them over a speed shop as they obviously know Jeeps and have all the little bits if needed (like some clips etc that they replaced). They do not have a Dyno but I figured that with a pre-canned tune from RIPP there is not much that they could do in this regard except give me confirmation of the power generated and doing a few 0-100 runs will prove it anyway.

I was happy with the install and they are also now confident on doing other vehicles for those that live in Sydney. For me the cost was:
- A$1,818.18 for Labour
- A$14.88 for parts (8 x Rivets)
- A$44.18 for Power Steering Fluid
- A$146.60 for Antifreeze Coolant (this stuff must be made of Liquid Gold)!

My Jeep has also been registered with Jeep Aust as a Modified Vehicle and I signed the following (which I thought was fair and reasonable):

"Customer has been made aware that any unforeseen complication which arise in the operation of the motor vehicle which can be linked to the modifications will not be covered by the Manufacturer Warranty. Any adverse effects of the modification to the performance of the vehicle are the responsibility of the owner"

Thank you Nathan, we really do appreciate the solid perspective you outlined here and hit all the key points we try to emulate in posts and videos.

In our honest opinion modification like this should just be easy to own and we try real hard to make that happen. When we are engineering these kits we first take the installers perspective; if he can find it enjoyable to unpack, easy to install and easy to deliver, then to no fault of his own would he have any regret or apprehension to endorsing our systems.

Once we are done with that we apply ourselves very heavily to drive quality of the vehicle. If the vehicle is no fun to drive, or if the end user is dealing with things more than he's having fun, then what fun would that be? Both the power and investment would be over shadowed by the presumable issue. In our opinion we are unearthing the hidden soul of the vehicle and do not take that lightly. We feel it's our duty to find what the SRT engineers may have hidden under rules and regulations. What the competitors are perceiving as "small compressor" and/or "least powerful" we actually engineered to be perfectly balanced between drive quality and power. Lastly, we steer very clear of the mechanical limits the vehicle was born with. Again, what fun would a more powerful broken car be? To that extent we also let our wives drive all our kits. Their opinion on drive quality and feel is equally and important as the full throttle feel you're enjoying when putting it to the test.

The yield is what you outlined and to that extent we cannot thank you enough for how well its worded.

Question always welcome,

RIPPTECH

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

I've been travelling so much for work that I've hardly got to drive it much in the last couple of weeks...but as an update:
- Still waiting for the new BOV and Plumb Back Plate for the Air Filter (so I can progress to the certification etc)
- Hard to judge the fuel efficiency but it seems about the same. I get 16-18 l/100hm around town and on the run down the coast and back was around 11.5l/100km on V-Power (98RON) fuel. I see in Melb / Adl, that 100RON fuel is everywhere but I don't see it around my area.

Looking forward to seeing how you install goes.

We are currently working on a solution for the recirc and are nearly there. We cannot PM you for some reason, but can email you pics. The system is slightly crude but very functional. and very easy to install. All components should be in mid next week.
