Jeep Intake Supercharger Kit Turbo Chip Performance
 
Hey guys!!

i am new around here :)
i have owned a 98 5.9L for couple of years now, and decided it was time to mod this beast up :D

does anyone has tried or heard of the 'Jeep Intake Supercharger Kit Turbo Chip Performance'

Any other basic mods i should be aware of or something ? all my parts are still from the manufacturer

Thanks a lot :)

I'd save my money for something else. Headers, exhaust and tune are worth around 30+ hp.

900 watt motor? That will be drawing 65 amps or so. That is a lot. The whole thing looks pretty bogus.

Electric superchargers are 100% bogus.

I've heard a crankcase lamp can give you at least 50hp, and a flux capacitor will give you another 50 horses. Also, adding a vacuum pump at the end of tailpipe gives a lot of oomph because of no restriction in the exhaust flow :2thumbsup:



..my ideas are just as useful as the idiotic "intake supercharger".. :rolleyes: Feel free to try, I want charge you a cent :D

Just get an electric weed blower and put the motor from that on there. Just as good :rofl:


Sounds like a dumb idea doesn't it?

hmmm haha ok bad idea :P

so, what should i focus on getting first?
by the way, i need a new fuel pump for the 5.9L... i passed by a gas station and i got water and sand instead of fuel... now the fuel intake is bad, i have bad times getting the engine to start after couple of hours of standing, and whenever the fuel tank is below half, and i take a left turn while gassing, the whole engine get hiccups.... any ideas/replacement? i found the BOSH one exact match of the current one, but at 160$ on amazon...

Many thanks :D

I would take your money and fix all the old worn out stuff on your 5.9 before you spend any money modifying it. Stuff like Bushings, plenum gasket repair kit, replace all coolant hoses, new plugs and wires, ect. Fix all the wear and tear items and get it running great then mod it later.

you could always use the hair dryer that way you have hot and cool air intake hah:laugh:

if you really want to spend that much money on something get a 3 inch lift from RC, with the adjustable control arm.

yes the 5.9 is a fast ba motor, but its still an suv

Headers, exhaust, programmer, better air intake, ported throttle body - all will wake up the 5.9 substantially.

PM me if you would like information - I have solid suggestions in all categories.
