Now, if you believe WXman, we have to. If a JLUR with a supercharger doesn’t perform remotely close to a stock F150. Then without the supercharger, we are doomed to the slow traffic lane. :giggle:

Why are we supercharging Jeeps on again?
Ironic you ask, after you being asked "why do we put LEDs on Jeeps when we live in cold climates again"?

And again and again, the answer is not to please people but to please oneself. Goddamnit.

Let me know when you guys are ready to add the most powerful product on the market to your JL and I will give you a forum member price. Prodigy Performance makes more power than a v8, of any kind and that of a SC! We have more kits on the road than any of our competitors.

I'm waiting on Magnuson to release theirs. Instead of reworking the old 3.6 JK unit to fit they decided to start from scratch and build a more efficient unit for the JL. Waiting...........

They had to redesigned it because when they moved the oil cap to the inside of the valve cover the JK design would no longer fit. The same probably goes for Edelbrock and Sprintex. At least that's what I was told.

I called Edelbrock and asked about their new supercharger for the 3.6 that they showed at Sema November 2018 they have no ETA on release.

I hope to one day, the 8 speed and 3.6 charged is handily putting down V8 numbers for 8 k of investment. And the trasmission is the real key to that. Thats a real reason not to get a 2.0. Its going to have a celing as far as safe power goes. Safe to say the right blower or turbo and the 3.6 will put out Raptor numbers.
The displacement isn’t necessarily a good indicator for safe peak power, especially with forced induction. Head bolts and ring gap play a big part.
