Sorry for the long post and if it’s hard to understand in advance

Hey guys I recently got a 17 JKUR it came with a ripp super charger. I got several issues and now I’m stuck with this thing. Anyone with a ripp supercharger have an enormous amount of blow by coming into the air filter? My air filter turns into an oil filter and it’s going to fry the motor eventually. The picture below doesn’t do justice but the bottom of the filter above the elbow is saturated, the frame, air temp sensor, everything past the filter is coated in oil. Gotta figure something out any help is appreciated.

Very curious.

I’ll be monitoring the situation closely.

No doubt in my mind, some good info will be forthcoming.

OP, you may want to provide a little more info.

Miles, other Mods , who did the install, what if anything has been done to correct etc.

I purchased the Jeep used here recently, it already had the super charger installed not sure how long it’s been up there to be honest but the Jeep only has 36k on it. Other than that the other mods are 35s with a teraflex 3” lift

I have about 18000 miles on my 07 JK since I installes a RIPP supercharger and the only issue I have had was the air filter separated from it's base. I don't have a Pentastar engine so this may not be pertinent to you. Have you contacted RIPP they were good with comunication with me when I first installed my supercharger.

No fix yet but when I talk to Ripp about it they say it’s common and some 3.6s are dirtier than others. That I need to buy a universal catch can to install in place. My theory is since Ripp installs a check valve in the pcv line so when boost is applied the check closes to protect from pushing boost into the crank case. That check stays closed in all boosted situations, which forces all off the blow by to come from the passenger side pcv line through the block to the driver side vent into the air filter collecting oil on the way.

Yes I have they are very helpfully, they keep giving me different things to try so I have ordered a catch can and see what that does from there. Since the Pentastars have two vents from the crank case I guess I would have to run on the pcv side and one on the vent side. The vent side it the one that is causing all my problems right now.

Sell it to me. Problem solved.

I think the most typical issue is people realize they wasted 7k. :lol:
EDIT: I know White13FWDriceracerJKUR is going to bitch slap me.
Not only am I still in FWD mode and back on stock wheels, I pulled the shocks so it's a bouncy ride too.

Lol if I felt like spending more money to get the power I wanted it to have I would yank it off in a heart beat. Not just yet though.

If it's one of the K&N oiled filters, could it just be that the last owner cleaned and over-oiled it? What color is the oil?

I over-oiled my K&N for the stock air box. That thing never did stop spreading oil everywhere (over a year) until I cleaned and reoiled with proper amount.

Otherwise, either new piston rings (like Total Seal gapless) or maybe dual catch cans for vent and PCV lines. I know which way Id go lol.

Wtf at that point there shouldn’t be any wear on that motor he’ll it shouldn’t even be broke in yet. But hell same here why am I dumping ounces of oil out the air filter with a trip from Kansas City to Iowa. But that’s normal lol.

If I ever do another one, I'd look for an old engine (or high miles) and rebuild it. That way would avoid gambling with OEM assembly issues.

So I do believe I have found the issues with all my blow by checked oil this morning before starting and it was way above the hash marks almost in the cable to be honest. I’m sure the dealer over filled it. Which with a boosted motor will a shit load more blow by. Any thoughts?

I dont know about FI, but overfilling can screw up lots of other things like lifters with foaming etc.
