But air gets hotter when compressed. Thats why they have intercoolers

I will write up a complete review for it after that. But for now i can say i am very very happy with the kit. It is very fun and responds very well. i have had 0 issues with it so far- no leaks or anything. The motor seems to be holding up perfect from it. It is an absolute blast to drive on the highway now. It no longer feels like a big SUV on the highway. I wish these came from the factory like this. I took one of my buddies who has a 850HP CTS-V on the highway and he couldnt believe how nicely it pulls on the highway at high speeds. I am not trying to go for the fastest jeep on the planet as most guys building up their jeeps are. But this is very safe and reliable kit that makes driving these performance SUVs even better. It makes a nice sound starting up and cruising. Some people are really not liking the way the pipes are routed but hey just take what you got and make the best out of it. I powder coated my pipes to match everything else. If you dont like the big silver piping then powder coat it black and it gets hidden. I was worried i wouldnt like the big silver intercooler but honestly now everyone knows it has something good done to it and it is a nice look walking out the jeep now.

I still need to get my custom tune from RIPP once they are back from vacation. But right now I am very satisfied with where its at and its a blast to drive. I have 2 Jeep buddies that are ordering their kits this week from RIPP. Also RIPP has been very easy to work with and they are always around to help out with questions. Both speed shops i have been to have been fairly impressed with the kit. One of them had just put on the first magnusun kit on a wk2 and they said the ripp kit was much more impressive and they told their customer they should have went with the RIPP kit. I will have more numbers and such after the weekend. But jon on here aka JVM lives 30 minutes from me and he is now hitting 3.7 0-60 in 100 degree Texas heat and his best before was 4.7 I believe before the blower. So i expect some good results as well.
This is an excellent review in it's own right brother - a big tick in the right box that your tranny has adapted to the boost in power
one of the most critical things is that a lot of driving will be in suburban situations so yeah everyday driveability is important
Top shelf stuff dude - cheers
