This is the only one I could find Avenger Superchargers http://www.avengersuperchargers.com/Product%20Info.htm Personally I wouldn’t buy one of these there not a “name brand” supercharger theres enough problems with name brand superchargers ex. Overheating keeping lubricated ect. Just go for a engine swap get one at a pick-a-part. You could always use nitrous just for an instant boost but you got to go easy on in.

uh oh, can of worms time. Most everything below this post here is gonna consist of "why do people wanna make jeeps fast?" and "just tro a tree fitty in er"

avenger is the only company currently making and sorta forced induction for the jeep 2.5
Ive toyed with the idea of a turbo from a lebaron or from an eagle talon, or even looked at some generic non model specific ones on ebay but decided the time and energy involved in trying to cob somthing together just to have the stock fuel system not accept it is really not worth my effort

but thats just me, g'luck

Same here. I'll just re-gear and be done with it.

also, put a grpaefruit shooter, its an instant 15 hp, and cold air intake is also another 10 hp, stickers are only 7, so thats not a good performance part for your jeep, that only works on honda's.

Don't forget the muffler with the lit tailpipe that's sound like a duck fart going down the street...oh and must we not forget the big a$$ stupid looking wing that's bigger than the whole vehicle and stands about 3 feet higher than the vehicle does. All these should add all of about 2-3 hp...yes?,lol

Well I never wanted a supercharger, but a turbo would be perfect for a Jeep. Especially with the big tires, it'll help at highway speeds.

Then again, I could just do what those guys said, a sticker that says "speed racer performace upgrade speed products" haha

Leaf Blower, haha, funny, then you really could say, "yeah, my Jeep is a straight six with a blower." haha

For the effort your talking about, get a six cylinder model, hop it up with a hesco supercharger, and your breaking dana 30's left and right. Oh yeah, those small 4x4.5 plastic jeep hubs all the wranglers have on them. Seen warn models out live detroit lockers.

An acquaintance with an airfilter/throttle body upgrade on his 95 4 banger wrangler broke one hub, and two, not just one, but two detroit lockers in the Dana35 rear end with warn kit installed.

WTF is up with some of you people? What in the hell about adding horsepower to jeeps make them "rice?" If you have ever been wheeling you would know that the 2.5/4.0/4.2 could use a little extra power in certain situations.

If someone puts a 302/305/350/351/ect... in place of their "weaker engine" does that mean they only want to go faster?

some of you need to get over the TFATF

Hey bud, I'm on your side too, but if this forum isn;t just for wheelin Jeeps, it all Jeeps, including rice Jeeps , so if they want to discuss turbos, superchargers, or whatever, then let them do it by themselves. I'd like to have a tirbo just for the heck of it . But I'd rather get new gears and lockers instead

Who would want to lock a d35 anyway? Unless you're doing a Super 35.
