I put about 30 miles on it today around town and so far it's looking good. Very quiet and smooth power.

I'm not going to post too many Pic's of the current setup.....Don't want the competition to copy...
Good! I see too many people assume huge drive train losses so they can post a BIG horse power number.
Plug and play is good especially if it's supplied pre-programed (at least 90% of the way). We actually see greater than 100% power increase at 1bar boost on our BMW engines. Proper tuning is key.

Any thoughts on how much power the stock internals of the 3.8 can handle?

I still have my '98 TJ... been toying with turbo charging it but... well, it's way down the list.

So you know I some clue to this forced induction stuff, this is me and a buddy... a side gig for me... www.turbochargingdynamics.com

I look forward to seeing your progress.

we can hook you up with a nice Supercharger setup for yor 4.0 or even a 4.7 stroker kit and aluminum head if your interested

We were messing around one day on the engine dyno and bolted the supercharger i'm currently running on a stock 4.0l out of the junkyard. No fuel or timing changes...6 lbs and run it to redline 300+hp at 13.4 to 1 AFR. The 4.0 is one tough engine...we tried real hard to blow it up and the dam thing still run's as good as new
I wish they would have kept the 4.0L We are gonna miss it.

Thanks, but if I go FI on the jeep I'll build a turbo system from scratch... no offense

The 4.0 is tough like the old BMW 3.5. We're pushing over 400lb/ft of torque at the wheels from 3000 -5200 rpm and 400whp with our kits. This is with all stock internals with a MLS head gasket and studs.

Do you guys have a "delivery" date for the kit?

Let me know when your ready to boost her, we have a plug in play unit that works really good.

either way i'm hoping to have the kit out by the end of next month. We are going to début it the second weekend of feburuary at the world of wheels car show in Birmingham Alabama http://www.worldofwheels.info/

Is this a handheld programmer, and can you mention who it is made by? Also, do you use your computer to modify parameters then load it to the programmer or can some of the changes be made directly from the handheld? Thanks!

its not a handheld unit, It plugs into the factory computer and has preset programs based on your mods. Up to 6 different tunes can be selected via a switch. Updated tunes can be emailed to you and can be download into the unit via laptop ......or desktop for that matter.

Its a full tune...not just a Wide open throttle tune like most handhelds and such.

I can't release the name of it yet but after we get the testing done I will post up all the specs.

Well I dont have a JK, but I do have a YJ that I plan on strokeing in the next year or two, or when ever it starts crapping out on me (210K and still strong!) But I would like to have one of those super bling aluminum heads for it. Yall gonna have one of those on display at the W.O.W. show? I have never been to one, think I might go this year. I am just up the road in cullman.

What size and injectors does the 3.8 come with stock (19lb or 24lb maybe?), and are they standard size injectors?

Well we cranked up the boost today. We are now running on production base kit boost levels. Testing diferent combo's and measuring air temps. There is not a lot of room under the hood and it seals up very well so not much air gets in or out. Hopefull I will be able to post up some dyno numbers soon

We should have the tuner tomorow and testing will begin soon on it.

I know your boost level is relativily low, but has there been any discussion of charge cooling?
