I've been following the development of the Avenger Supercharger System for the JK for about 2 and a half years.
I drove the original 3.8 kit a couple years ago and was pretty disappointed. At that time, I decided that I would swap in a Hemi or maybe a 4BT Diesel because nobody had successfully supercharged a JK yet. By "successfully", I mean making it run "right"... all the time.
Well, Jack from Avenger partnered up with the best tuner in Colorado and got the thing dialed in! I recently had the chance to drive the latest version of the supercharger, on both a 2-Door JK with 40's(Jack's half-cab) and Alasha's 4-Door with stock wheels/tires.
I was extremely pleased with the performance of the new system! It doesn't feel like a WRX Sti or anything, but it changes the drive-ability of the Jeep dramatically. Lane changes, freeway ramps, and mountain passes will no longer require 5000 rpms!

STOCK BASELINE dyno with Auto trans, 41" Iroks, 5.13 gears, K&N cone filter on Rusty's intake tube, and custom exhaust with a Flowmaster 50 Series:


Started the install today!:bounce:




Got a young helper!

As well as some mature help!

Install should be done by next Wednesday and I'll post the baseline and supercharged dyno graphs for an honest comparison. I'll keep updating throughout the process...:beer:

OK, now to be serious, who is a bigger help - Alex or Jack? LOL
I think they enjoyed each other's company. Alex kept bugging Jack for stickers, so they got a little side-tracked once in a while.
But I think Alex could install the whole thing by himself.:laughing: It's really quite a simple install!
