Re: Ripp vs. Whipple ??

With either, drop some forged pistons and rods in... And, I'd also say to validate your tune locally on a dyno with a wideband to ensure you are where you should be.

My Whipple ran great until the motor let go. I prefer the positive displacement blower over the centrifugal, which is why I went with the Whipple. I think either side is going to say their choice is the way to go...

Ripp's customer service seems to be good. Or it may just be that they are more active and vocal with the number of guys here that have put the kit on.

the pro charger includes a Fuel pump booster to keep it from leaning out.

I have the install instructions if any one would like them.

Re: Ripp vs. Whipple ??

I had the RIPP on my 5.7. Was great. Also with this type of product you really want to have the service behind it and RIPP is the BEST when I comes to service. Anything you ever need Ross is there for you. For me that is important.

Re: Ripp vs. Whipple ??

That is yet to be determined. We have some ideas from investigating the carnage, but Livernois wants to get it on the rollers and do some diagnostics/logging to determine the root cause.

At this point, the motor is back together and back in the Jeep at Livernois' shop. Currently, they are installing a new dyno, so the Jeep is awaiting that to be completed.

I was running a little under 8psi. The motors are the same between the '12 and '15 - 6.4L. Your ability to tune it varies on year along with the transmission of course.

Still, drop the forged pieces in with any route. It is a small price to pay compared to what it can turn into. Trust me...
