Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Thanks Nathan,

Do you have the option of rolling back the RIPP tune if previous ones give better results? Any quarter mile run data yet? Really hoping you achieve that 3.5 sec mark. Pretty special for such a versatile "family" suv.

According to the RIPP website they saw a 4 mpg improvement after installing this SC kit for pure highway. Going on factory claimed consumption rates this should put the SRT somewhere around 10.2 l/100km (23 mpg) for pure highway driving which is the same as my wife's Rav SX6 which is currently serving as the family chariot.

Interesting that you see no difference with the ECO mode on, come to think of it I have not read any sort of real world testing for this, certainly nothing based from over doing hundreds of kms. Think this might be my challenge for the first 1000km's on my SRT when I get it. I'll be doing a lot of highway kms, so over a year even a few litre's per 100km improvement is going to save me around $500.

I really like the RIPP SC kit as unlike the Whipple which leaves no doubt there is a super charger bolted to your engine, the RIPP looks really subtle when installed. I think you mentioned earlier, the black version looks factory fitted to me. Also being a 100% reversible install is really important I think.

If I go ahead it will be March/April next year, so I'll be following this thread with great interest. Really hoping you get the support you need to get this fully legal, and would be thrilled to see RIPP offer an Aus variant based on your install.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Yes you can load / unload tunes easily.

FYI - pre SC, my runs to CBR and back I was getting around 11l/100km around town it is 17l/100km. The city driving has not really changed that i've seen but it is so dependant on the conditions on the day it is very hard to compare for sure. Post SC I get sub 10l/100km on the local freeways when under 100km/h and cruise control.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

FYI, I did 100KM today on a run to Liverpool and back down the M5 and got 8.6l/100KM. Mostly 80km/h with the Jeep idling along on adaptive cruise control in 8th gear at 1,250rmp. Just me and about 1/4 tank of 98ron fuel.

Wow, that is like 27mpg, very impressive. With the amount of boring (as in constant speed on a pretty flat landscape) country kms I'll be doing. The results you are seeing would have the Ripp SC paying for upto around a quarter of its purchase price in what I have budgeted for in fuel costs over the 4 years we tend to cycle cars.

I meant to ask, does the sound of the SC fill the cabin at all when doing "sensible" driving? If not, I'd say my pro's vs cons list is now weighing noticeably in the pro's favour.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

You really don't hear the SC at all under normal driving conditions and while you can hear the SC under hard acceleration it is the BOV venting to atmo that makes a scream when coming off WOT.

On the fuel efficiency, I noticed that 80km/h is the "sweet" spot as it is still in 8th and just ticking over, I need to do some post SC install driving at 110km/h to see what that is like. That said, it's a big tank and easting 98ron so expect $150 fill ups!

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

Good news! RIPP have sent me a new Tune to play with and also posted the PlumbBack BOV. Bad news, is I'm away with work till the end of the week so will not get to play till then I'll post some pics of the BOV when installed and then off to the Engineers for Certification and get the Emissions Test done.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

So close now. Looking forward to seeing those pics, and hopefully this BOV will be a catalogue item from now on for us Aussies.

I think I saw you mention that the Engineers cert is only needed for the first vehicle. I take it this is a per state/territory thing?

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

I believe all vehicles will need to pay to get the Eng Certificate but they did say that the braking test component may only need to be done once.

Re: Australian RIPP Install (RHD)

The latest tune felt good on a few runs. It was a warmer day 31C (88F) and while my best was still a 3.8sec 0-100, the gear changes were almost unnoticeable and the Jeep’s acceleration feeling very linear all the way.
Thanks
Nathan

Did a run down and back on the M2/M7 at 100km/h today and it was 9.7l/100km, warm day and a full tank and more undulating than the M5.
