Thought I'd start a separate thread on how the RIPP install goes for us RHD. I've ordered the RIPP kit with a Black Intercooler (just to attract less attention).
Install: Prior to the Install I've spoken with:
: Send them photos of our RHD engine bay and there was nothing obvious about our layout to prevent the install of the kit as is.
: I've taken the install instructions to my Jeep Service Centre (Artarmon NSW), who don't see any issue either and are happy to do the install
: These guys do Compliance/Engineering Certificates and think the kit looks good. Only areas to note on the kit is it will need to include a "Plumb Back" for the Blow Off Valve (mandatory in Australia). We also need to do a IM240 Emissions Test.
Costs: In addition to the purchase price of the Kit:
to OZ (NSW) is about US$400.
: Apart from the 10% GST, I "think" there is no more duty on parts thanks for the FTA - https://www.dfat.gov.au/fta/ausfta/o...utomotive.html
which I presume is in force now.
: I'll get the Jeep Dealer to do it, they will charge normal workshop time so I guess it is say A$1,500
: EVO Compliance quoted A$1,500 for the certification including a brake test due to the increase in power being over 20% from stock. Apparently this part only needs to be done once per kit, so they don't have to test each car they do, just the first.
IM240 Emission Test
: Free in NSW (RMS in Botany do this).
I'll keep this thread updated as the install goes.
