Exactly my thoughts. If there is ever significant evidence that an FI system works on the JL's 3.6 reliably under varying conditions in the continental US I will sign right up. Until then these FI companies and their silent responses to all of the nightmare stories can keep their kits.
Looking at the vid and the picture, you need to cut up the filter box, lower the sway bar (not sure how this would work with a Rubicon) and weld the oil cooler behind whatever bumper you are running... I don't see how this could become the official Jeep supercharger with that much hacking up.
Does relocating the rear trackbar reduce flex due to reduced clearance between the track bar and the body or something else? I am considering relocating my rear trackbar for drivability (MC rear trackbar) but don't want to give up flex.
In theory, yes. For some reason, these adjustments seem to be tricky to dial in on the new pentastar with the higher compression ratio. I am sure FI vendors have a very good idea of what adjustments to make to allow for environmental variables and varying octane availability and would gladly...
I think it's easier to get FI right at sea level especially where octane that's 91 and above is basically guaranteed.If you did a trip up to 8000+ ft elevation and got locally sourced fuel with the highest octane available and had no troubles I'd be willing to take my Jeep to your shop. Driving...
I know, I'm not worried about losing HP, just want gobs of torque under the curve starting real early. A heavy-duty belt setup would take care of reliability. It would be a small price to pay for a significant increase in torque where it matters most and cheaper than a V8 swap.
Does anyone have any experience with Hamburger's?
Just came across it, had never heard of it. Similar setup to RIPP it looks like.
It does make sense, I want peak PSI at the lowest RPMs as possible. Since superchargers run off the crank speed, reaching the peak PSI very early on mens the supercharger will surpass that peak with increased engine speed. Like you mentioned, these build up quickly at low RPMs and that's what i...
I'd run the smallest pulley and vent at 7PSI to build boost as fast as possible and leave headroom for safety..just want the low end torque. I'm looking forward to seeing some feedback on real world usage traveling through changing altitudes and octane availability.
