Ripp Supercharger

Just looking to see if anyone has one and could answer a few questions.
1) How is performance on normal driving
2)How is performance at Highway speeds trying to pass
3) Any gain in fuel mileage.
Thanks

You aren't going to gain gas mileage with a power adder or stroker. I don't know why people keep spreading that info around.

Do you have a dyno test to back up this claim? Superchargers don't turn themselves you know; the drag to run them costs you fuel efficiency.

One of the guys from Ripp use to frequent the forum a lot. There is a pretty good thread on their products too. Give them a shout sometime, they were really friendly to talk to when I was at a local Jeep show last year.

if you want better MPG and power go with a 4 cyl cummins diesel or do a V8 swap.

The Magnacharger I installed on my LS6 dramatically decreased my gas mileage..... of course some of the decrease can be attributed to the fact that I constantly roll on the throttle just to feel the power

But seriously, my mileage dropped from the low 20's to about 17 mpg on the highway.

Absolutely. It's the most exhilerating car I've ever owned. I've never had a car that makes me giddy each time I turn the key.

It's great ain't it!

I put a pulley, injectors and tuner on my 06 supercharged Saleen, caused terrible tire wear, terrible gas mileage and a goofy grin that just wouldn't go away.

The guy that used to post to JF no longer works there ... found that out a few months back. But like you said, the RippMods guys are great to talk to (I'm lucky since they're local) but I've seen Ross talk to (potential) customers at great length on the phone. Just check out their site and give them a call.
