I don't think the stage 2 RIPP for the 3.6l is planned for release anytime soon...if ever
I was able to score one of the 2 or 3 stage 2 kits they ever made...the difference between the stage 1 and 2 is as follows:
Larger Intercooler( SRT stage 2 intercooler)
the blower and everything else is the same ...the stage 1 kit is good to 320AWD HP safely...and the stage 2 GC that Ripp shows on their site only has larger injectors and is getting 400AWD HP..I'm not sure about this but I think the kit I have may be the only one they made with the larger intercooler...but i'm not sure.
When I installed the stage 2 kit it upped the boost to ~10lbs (up from 7lbs) due the volumetric increase from the larger Intercooler and piping.
HP went from 320Hp to 420AWD HP (to the wheels) at 9-10 Lbs
I ended up popping my motor though when I upped the boost to 13-14Lbs ...if you stay in the 7-10 lb range on the stock engine you'd prob be safe though
***last 2 pics is the stage 1*** ...and here's what the stage 2 kit looks like when installed
but if you are not careful you may find pieces of metal exiting the block like in my last few pics...this is what i found lodged in my front skid plate after the motor exploded
