Very clean. Dyno numbers will do wonders for this kit.

Any recommended upgrades to really bring out the power? Headers, etc?

Looks like any snorkels that work with the stock air box will work with this kit?

Dyno numbers and video coming soon. Thank you for offering up your vehicle for R&D. If we need it we will definitely be contacting you. However, I believe the next vehicle we are going to use will need to be 100% stock.

i was probably going to be going supercharger next year sometimes to address the terrible power the wrangler makes.

glad there is another option. the ripp system has a great reputation and glad there is another option on the market!

anxiously waiting on the dyno... hoping the power is waaaay down low on the powerband.

my fav part is stock intake location!!



*edit* a question... i read about the bypass thing with low parastic power loss. does that mean that this system wont provide much power up top? im cool with that, but i would also like some "freeway passing" power as well as power to help the anemic 3.8 hold 70 on the freeway without shifting out of o/d constantly when i have a headwind and the a/c on.

Looks to me like it's priced nearly $400 below the competition.

Don't forget. They are not the only competition around. I have an Avenger and it works just fine. Yeah, I had to cut a hole in my hood. So what....


There's gonna be bugs in the first generation model for the JK. It's always something when it comes to a product like this!!!!!!

Can we get a zoomed out picture, or do you know if this will fit with dual batteries? I have a benchmarkdesigns and wanted to make sure everything will still fit. Might be close. Thanks

Check out their Facebook page for a few more detailed pictures. They are using something other than a factory battery tray.

The system will not fit the traditional dual battery set ups. We did leave room in the new battery tray (which we provide with the system) for a group 31 Optima.

The bypass is a vacuum actuated mechanical door. It allows the air to "bypass" the rotors when you have the vehicle at partial throttle. As you increase your throttle input, the vacuum in the manifold drops and the the bypass closes. The supercharger is then making boost. The low parastic loss is referring to the 1/3 of a horse power it takes to spin the blower when in bypass mode. Also, there is no compression in the rotors, so there isn't heat building in the housing when the blower is in bypass. This doesn't affect the top end boost, either. You get full boost (5-6 lbs) through the whole RPM range.

Thank you very much for the interest! The system, currently, is intended for 2007-2010 JKs...we are not able to tune the 2011 JK at this time. We are working on the 2011 and 2012 calibration as we speak...a little love from Chrysler would be much appreciated!

It was great to meet you guys at Moab Wes, your JK looked good. I especially liked the water to air intercooler you run; however.....

I'm looking forward to putting your LS 5.3 SC on our shop JKU, over 400 hp and 20 + mpg

This kit looks pretty sweet. With the boost across the dyno curve, would you say it helps on the low end quite a bit, like in the 1500 to 2500 range? Guess wanna see how it does with slow crawling as well as helping to hold OD on the highway. I know the best solution there is regearing, but a little more power to the engine would help out I would think.

I have seen 2 Avenger (roots style) equipped vehicles and they seem to have plenty of low end. At a stop light they blew me away and I have a stock 2 door rubi 6 speed. 1 was a JKU auto and the other was a 2 door with larger tires.
