Ripp installed.

Got the RIPP kit installed with the stage 2. Piping was kind of wonky. Brackets for the big IC was kind of wonky. Overall install took way longer than the predicted 5-6 hours because we had to fabricate some new brackets. Piping hit the top of the hood no matter what, had to notch the bottom of the vent. Overall, its a decent kit. Not incredibly stoked with the power gain, but the BOV sure does sound nice. Hopefully after a Johan tune it wakes up a little more.

Re: Ripp installed.

The longer you drive it the less you feel the added power. If you don't feel it right away, it only gets worse from there. We get used to the power quickly after we drive them once power has been upgraded. Also not a big fan of centri blowers in these trucks. With 5300 LBS of weight, they benefit greatly from PD blowers, which is why I went with a Whipple; much more bottom end grunt.

Centri blowers don't require much more custom fit other than a few brackets, unlike a PD blower that requires a serious amount of engineering and design to fit the specified vehicle, which also means the companies behind the PD blowers are usually much larger entities, and spend much more on R&D.

Most centri blowers use a universal Vortech head unit...which are better suited to racing applications. I always found PD blowers to be way more fun in the street. I have some cars with PD and some with centri blowers. I much prefer the PD's. There always some to be some annoying, stupid fitment issues with the centri blowers, just due to lousy R&D, or a lack of it altogether.

Most companies building centri kits are buying the head units from Vortech, unlike Whipple/ Magnusson/ Eton/ Paxton/ Rousch/ Eldelbrock...etc, who build their own kits from scratch, with perhaps the exception of the intercoolers.

I also hate the BOV's making all that noise - LOL
Just my .02 cents worth...YMMV

Yah, if I did it all over again I think I'd go whipple. Not a huge fan of this kit at all. Hoping some fine tuning makes it more fun.

Re: Ripp installed.

Man I hate reading this But honestly can't say I'm surprised.

I tell everyone I can on the phone my thoughts and most don't seem to listen and I'm not starting a long detailed thread I hint around enough here as far as the tuning and kits available goes.

Re: Ripp installed.

8k for a blow off valve? lol keep the blow off valve and boost low before you fry the rings.
