Hey guys,

RIPP is proud to announce a new side project we took on, the RIPP Front Mount Intercooler and larger piping kit for the Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 EcoDiesel. When it comes to intercoolers bigger is better and this one is just about three times larger than stock. Larger means it will keep the heavy breathing 3.0 in it's efficiency range and bring boost in sooner and cooler. It also rids all the plastic end tanks and piping and replaces it with heavy-duty aluminum.

Maximize airflow by removing excessive tight bends and comes with everything you need to replace the OEM intercooler with our bar and plate core unit. Constant tension T-Bolt clamps included.

Oh nice, I may have to look into this. This would be especially useful for those with more demanding applications like towing heavy loads, power tuned ECU's and off-roading.

Oh man, love me some intercooler upgrades. I think I'll let a few folks beta test this first though.
Certainly a good upgrade for guys who tow a lot! Now we just need some hard core oil cooling options and that should make a dependable setup.

Can you post a video of the turbo whistle noise the 2056 makes without the turbo silencer and the aluminum piping?

**edit** after really looking at the pics it seems like there are a few extra breaks in the line between the output of the turbo and the intercooler input. Any reasons for this? Also, is the pipe work supported anywhere to the chassis or does it just "float"?

How much heat will the BIG intercooler add to the radiator heat load, which is already at its limit when towing? Someone will have to make a good before and after tow comparison up a grade. It will be about 115F here today and I can't add anymore heat load.

I have the 2014 grand Cherokee Laredo and the v6 diesel which I may add seems pretty powerful and I use about 8.8 liters per 100 kilometers which is ok . Would the supercharger work that much better for me in Australia

You are onto it Mike V the cooling system has issues when towing in high ambient temps. The normal airflow and the big fan just can't get enough air through the existing tow set-up when working the diesel uphills.

I know the Hemi Cherokee has a larger cooling capacity but in may be in the block and not the radiator. They are different part numbers.

Exactly, our clients in Europe have been wanting RIPP to make this so we applied ourselves. Towing is the main design, but naturally when boost starts being raised on the EcoDiesel extended heat dissipation will be very important.

Actually if you look at this picture, we really took our time to enlarge the piping size and bring fluidity to the bends. The added volume brings quicker acceleration and broadens the power-band.

Actually, that's a common misconception. Larger intercoolers, when properly set up do not cause over heating. This intercooler is just shy in width of the factory radiator. And the bar and plate design flows much more air than the OEM intercooler could ever. In fact we would go as far to say that the OEM intercooler is more of a block in air flow than ours could ever be and the OEM fan is more than adequate to pull air through it and keep the engine cool.

Dave, we don't swap out the turbo for a supercharger, this is a simple intercooler upgrade which adds cooling capacity making the boost your turbo is making more efficient. It will also increase the air volume the current piping system delivers and therefore creates more power with very little effort or ramifications to the engine.

Group buy? ;)
We can do that .... how many of you are ready for this and we can set aside an killer deal on these.

Stupid question but will installing this effect the warranty?
It's hard for us to say what your dealer will nix and allow, we have many mod friendly shops for our wrangler program that seem to look the other way. It also depends on what you're going in for. If you're going in for a non functional wiper or the electronics, it will have no effect. If you feel you grenade the drive train, we would assume you would take the necessary steps to reverse out things like this. But we're not raising the boost, we're keeping it cooler, the OEM tuning can correct and keep the engine safe for a mod like this. We don't forecast any danger zones with this mod.

Awesome, thanks guys! I would be interested in a group buy as well.

Any chance you know the power differences with just the change in piping? I think that removing the charge "muffler" might free up some hp...

Sadly no (not yet) - the R&D vehicle pictured had to be delivered prior to us doing a full and customary Dyno demo (which we love to do). We're grateful to him for the time but saddened we don't have this info.

However, we would need a second vehicle in our facility to demo the power...

Anyone in NYC please PM us
