Let’s start a separate thread for Turbos or one to discuss Prodigy so we can keep this one just about these superchargers.

Spoke with RIPP yesterday and they are still fine tuning their setup. They said that they are shooting for April for release.

Seems that Procharger is the most aggressive company to support a supercharger for the JL. Anyone have a Procharger installed yet on a JL? Any opinions on RIPP vs Procharger on JK installs?

Sprintex is garbage. I had one on a 2016 JKU Hard Rock, manual. Constant tuning issues. Which is stupid considering it was a 6 speed and shift points weren’t an issue. I ended up getting rid of the Jeep bc they could never tune it right. I kept having the boost cut out. They don’t support their shitty products either. I also think the boost is too much for the stock pentastar even though they deny it. I blew out stock cat in 2 months and shredded my ring gear in the rear diff. Do yourself a favor and stay away from that.

So why didn’t you just have it tuned professionally. Everything you described is all due to tuning and can be easily fixed.. all the companies that sell forced induction regardless the platform you are using will have a generic box tune to start and allow you to drove and have a tiny bit of fun. They are built around the fact no matter what vehicles will perform different then others and are driven differently the others no 2 are the same. If you add a power adder you need to have it dyno tuned to run correctly.

They won’t warranty the product if it’s not using their tune. We did several data runs and sent to Sprintex for new tunes and the problems never were resolved. I don’t care if you dyno tune or not, I just don’t think the 3.6 is meant to have 14-16 of boost. Dyno tune or not, you shouldn’t blow your Cats out of an almost brand new Jeep. It being a Rubi with the D44 rear, I wouldn’t think the rear diff would get destroyed within a month either.

I thought it only ran on 6-8 psi of boost?

Most of these kits are going to be around 7 psi. Suprisingly, RIPP says on their site 11-12 psi for the Charger/Challenger 3.6 kit, which I think is a bit high. I've seen their kits on the LX platform vehicles and it is a quality setup putting out good power. I spoke with them at the LX Spring Festival last month about their JL kit and they were just doing finishing touches on the tune.

I've personally worked with Edelbrock on a kit a few years back. I loaned them my vehicle for the first 392 supercharger kit they did. I can tell you that anything they put out will be top notch, plug & play and near bullet proof.

Ripp makes good products i lived on staten island for awhile and had him do work on my old eclipse. Im definitely looking at his kit for the jhell as soon as i get these steering issues fixed

LOL, you're describing problems that are Jeep related. Destroyed a ring gear. Is that because of bad tuning? Should companies offer low HP blower kits?
