Well, I've received the spark plugs and wires through Amazon. Unfortunately will be returning the plugs as they threw them in a bubble bag, got tossed around some, and came delivered damaged. So I just learned not to purchase spark plugs through Amazon.
I have the aFe exhaust manifolds as well. The box was damaged, but the contents were all good. I'll pass judgement on them once installed and in use.
I don't know what it is with shipping any more, but just about all packages through Amazon, UPS, and FedEx come with some damage to them. It's really like they just don't care any more. Okay, enough on that issue.
Currently still waiting on Magnuson's reply. I'll send a reminder e-mail to them tomorrow
My top choice was Magunson, Sprintex and then Ripp. But im pleasantly surprise how well it turned out. Would of sucked if the Ripp was a disappointment especially how much it costed lol. if i had to complain about something is it does require some revs to really start building power but its really not bad. It still has more power across the board compare to stock
Yeah, down side it doesnt have a good way to hook up to a snorkle. Even Ripps solution looks terrible
For me it was either Magnuson or nothing else. The other superchargers out there have various issues that I don't want to really deal with. If someone is truly interested the issues I find with the other supercharges out there, just ask.
And don't get me wrong here, I'm not bashing the other superchargers out there as there are many successful installs for them. I'm merely pointing out they were not an option for me.
I hope it works out and you like it.
I personally hated the SC on my 3.8! I was getting around 4mpg (with the auto) and it was still less power than my wife's 3.6 pentastar in her Rubicon. I dealt with it for two years and finally gave up and swapped for the 6.0l V8. My only regret was not going with the swap first because I thought I would be "saving money".
I'm sorry you had an issue with your supercharger install. I almost felt like asking which one you went with, but honestly it really doesn't matter and in the end I just don't care. There is always someone that will have a problem with any of the superchargers out there, but most of what I have read has been positive.
And honestly I'm glad to hear you're happy with your new setup. After all, we all want to be happy with what we purchase. And I feel that I will be happy with the results at the end of my project.
