^^ Seriously? Don't want to be a test platform. What do you think all the people with the 3.8 that purchased Ripp's were? And I'm talk about as recent as last year.
To the OP, I'll just say that when you read about issues that people are having, Sprintex, Ripp, or any others, remember that no 2 vehicles react the same to such an add-on. Issues that already exist that you aren't aware of can come to light. No 2 installs are the same either. Installation errors happen. A simple little o-ring that isn't really worth 2 cents can plague you with issues.
And then there is the tune. With all the SC companies, unless you dyno for your vehicle, your going to use a one tune fits all tune. If you have issues, they might tweak it for you a little, but that's it unless they release a new tune altogether.
I was fortunate that I did not have the issues with my Sprintex install like others that did. Mine ran well from day one. Did it run perfect? I kind a thought so, but no it didn't, because with each new tune it was an improvement.
Mine is a DD and I've got over 8k miles on my SC now. This includes wheel'n at Moab and several places more local to me. On Highway, I can set the pace of the pack if I want too. Even when I am pulling my custom M416 expedition trailer.
For me, that's thousands and thousands of proven miles!
