RIPP Superchargers #ProjectBarnFind 2dr JK Build

Hey Guys, let me introduce you to our newest in house project, a completely virgin low mileage (60k on the clock), 2008 6-speed Sahara.
Finding a 6 speed 2 door JK is a rarity in the NYC area, so its safe to say this one is special.

This thread will be updated regularly so make sure to check it weekly.
Our first episode is a simple baseline run on stock horsepower and torque. No modifications at all!



Intake Time! The RIPP cold air intake will yield 8-10 horsepower with no other modifications.
We utilize a stainless steel, powder coated intake pipe along with a carbon fiber, sealed air box with a high quality filter element inside.
Offered for both the 3.8 and 3.6

These filters are washable and can be used to connect a snorkel system right into the inlet.

Check out the dyno video and commentary

Working on the exhaust side of things, it was time to install our brand new RIPP Exhaust System for both 3.8 & 3.6 JK Wranglers

We've sampled a bunch of the Jk exhausts out there and while each are nice we wanted something quieter with a mature sound to it.
This system went through 4 different generations until we were satisfied with the sound and overall performance gain.
The RIPP Exhaust uses a flow-through design with small compartments through the inside of the muffler to cancel out those high pitch sounds that come out of the v6, making a nice overall sound without drone or sounding like a lawn mower.
All of the pipes are mandrel bent that stay consistent from tip to tip and are tucked up neatly under the chassis for the wheeler in mind. You won't get it caught on a long arm or drag an exhaust tip when going over an obstacle.

Next up on this build will be long tube headers. For our 07-08 3.8 owners, you will benefit from these greatly. With 4 cats in your exhaust manifolds,
your exhaust temps are already skyrocketing from the factory manifolds with a significant bottle neck of flow. This heat soaks the engine and hampers performance.
Our long tube headers use equal length runners and high flow cats to a race collector to provide maximum efficiency and scavenging.
Let's not spoil things, you guys and girls will have to wait!
