Re: Almost GO TIME...Ripp supercharger inhand and ready for install

If RIPP are unable to supply/support their s/c package down under (be great if they can!), there are a few locals that have installed a s/c (in Brisbane), or are very close to a "production" release of their kit (in Melbourne). Both locally developed kits (for the most part).

As this thread is all about RIPP and their great kit, shoot me a PM if needed (chances are you'll know at least one of the locals I'm talking about).

Re: Almost GO TIME...Ripp supercharger inhand and ready for install

I really like the RIPP ethos with this kit of getting the most out of our stock SRTs with their focus on reliability. I've spoken to my local Jeep dealer and they are happy to do the install but I take the point about being a loooooong way from RIPP if stuff goes south, esp on our RHD. That said, PM on it's way

Re: Almost GO TIME...Ripp supercharger inhand and ready for install

Update:

We have had 6 SRT's installed and put through our dyno with very similar results. The one thing we find odd is the way the vehicle configures itself for a HP testing. We have not nailed down why some vehicles elect to test AWD and some elect to test RWD. The one thing is sure they seem to have a mind of their own. In each case we followed the exact same procedure for testing. Pulling fuses and using the Diablo to over-ride the traction control. We have reported it to Diablo and will continue to work with this on the subject.

The hardware, power levels and install instructions are what we consider done. The latest 2 we did have headers and exhaust... A 2012 produced 561-RWHP AT 5.5PSI cleanly and drives wonderfully.

We are nailing down the 5.7 Durango next, it has required considerably more work than the SRT to tame. It has nothing to do with the hardware, its virtually the same as the SRT, it has to do with the OEM programming and how inconsistent it actually - there are OEM flaws that are amplified when SC'd.

RHD:
You can choose to wait - or you can choose to go your own route. We ask that company invest it's itme into the product as well and reported the information over the last six months, this too is work. We try to avoid all questionable's with regard to hardware, install and tune before we go 100% retail. We are currently in a soft launch if you want to be part of the soft launch and/or want to order a pre-production kit, call in or email in and we'll invoice you out and get a kit out to you for testing.

We know there are many FI options popping up our goal and objective is the be the go-to kit and the one that sets the bar.

I'm happy to buy when you think it is ready (RHD) in Oz.

Low humidity for us in Houston is 50 or 60% lol.
I'm seeing a low of 4.2 in Ft. Worth. That was last week w/ temp around 90. Admittedly low fuel and no passenger. So far only have Injen CAI.

We have not been able to locate any obstacles in any pics or technical bulletins that would interfere with our installation process. Purhapes getting a set of instructions to the installer for him to review would be the next logical thing to do.

email ripptuning@gmail.com with your installers email address as well as your own and we will have a discussion about getting one over to you. Once we confirm, we can pass over to billing guys and invoice.

What was the humidity? That has a bigger effect, at least from my experience.

Just placed my order. Can't wait! If anybody knows of a quality installation shop in the Harrisburg/Philly area of PA, please let me know or shoot me a PM.

E-Mail sent - FYI my local Jeep Service center seemed keen to do the install and I'll get them to look over the instructions to see if they can see any issues with RHD vehicles
