Time to give "Addiction" a little boost in performance! :)

The RIPP Supercharger system, along with RIPP long tube headers and Flowmaster "Hush Power" resonator exhaust system, arrived yesterday evening and will begin the installation today! :beer:

Be sure to install the air filter aluminum housing before installing the supercharger....as you can see in the following pictures there is not much wiggle room, enough not to be concerned about the sensor and spacing of the supercharger but not enough to manuever the canister install once the supercharger is mounted:

Air filter in place.....the yellow tag is connected to a plug bolt that will be removed in order to install a pressure release valve. The V3 superchargers are self-contained and this pressure release valve prevents too much pressure from building up in the oil case:

Stock exhaust heat shields trimmed and mounted to the RIPP Superchargers Long Tube Headers.....very little trimming and easy re-install:

Still need to install the FlowMaster "Hush Power" Resonator, but for now everything else is complete. Everything functions exactly as it is designed with no error codes or warning lights!

Gotta order a set of these!

The FlowMaster "Hush Power" Resonator is installed! Talk about a sound difference....With the Ripp Superchargers, long tube headers and Resonator, it sounds more like a V8 in it than a 3.8L V6!! :)


(And yes, the color zip ties have to go...ran out of black rerouting the rock light wiring).

Fantastic work guys! I've been running the Gen2 on my big 2-Door and have been very pleased. Just ran Red Cone and Webster passes last week for 2 days at 13,000 feet. The Ripp really helps pump in the little air that's available up there. Huge difference at altitude!

One thing I might recommend...
After a couple years of use, I've noticed some oil buildup in the intake housing and the IC plumbing. This is the same thing that is common on turbo diesel trucks.

The CCV valve feeds back into the end of the air filter through a tube, similar to OEM. But over time the oily blow-by crap builds up in the intake and blower components. Not usually a problem in a stock vehicle, but you don't want that crap sludging up your turbine and boost components.

They route the CCV this way to keep it emissions legal. But you can easily install a catch can or vent breather under the hood somewhere and re-route that CCV hose to the can or breather. This will keep your Ripp components nice and clean internally and keep that crap out of your motor. If you ever need to pass an inspection, you can simply plug that hose back into the intake.

DISCLOSURE FOR GREENIES:
This is technically illegal because you are venting crank case vapors (emissions) into the atmosphere. So the catch can is the "cleaner" method.
I would not eat my own poop. So I don't expect my motor to.

You know I have been following your Red JK build and fun for a while! :D Good call on the breather and thanks for the tip! Will look into setting this up....definitely don't need blow-by getting into the system. :beer:

Windows were down and hood was closed. It is fairly quiet.....but the does sound "stronger" than the typical mini-van motor it sounded like before. :beer:

Just a little feedback for everyone who may be looking into a RIPP Supercharger for your Jeep.

This is a picture to show yall the results a week later after going through 3/4 tank of gas with the RIPP installed! This gas gauge reading includes in-town driving and approximately 15-18 miles of highway driving.

For a 6spd, the shift points and "ideal" RPMs with the RIPP for fuel efficiency on my JK is back down from 2500 (pre-RIPP intall) to 1500-1800 (post-RIPP install). (NOTE: prior to RIPP install 2500rpm was the ideal range with 4.10 gears on 315x70x17s to increase mpg from 11.5-12mpg in town to around 13.5mpg in town and from 13mpg to 15
15.5mpg on highway).

Overall I am VERY impressed with the system for both the power/performance gains as well as with better fuel efficiency during "regular" driving!
