My Sprintex Super Charger install thread for my Jeep JK 3,8 l..., Under $3995

Hi, new to this jeep forum, but my son (chris38) has been here for some time with his CJ5 (was mine when i was 16!) and says this is a great forum... So I would like to post this...

With some guidance I had from some other forums members, along with much of my own reading and studying on the subject I have decided to go with a Sprintex Super Charger for my 2010 Jeep JK.....

I am very excited to get it, I was informed I may receive it as soon as March.

I understand I will be one of the first... thus kind of a guinea pig, but I believe this is a very safe bet for the following reasons:

Sprintex is very large company which has been in business for many years, and publicly traded.
The Super Charger itself is a true and tried design of theirs that they have been running for several years on other cars.
The Super Charger has won awards for being the most efficient Super Charger made.
It will be the only one that is CARB approved for our Jeeps.
Hypertech is doing all the mappings and CARB approval work.
Hypertech will be taking care of tech support!
There will be no cutting of any type, Battery location stays the same.
The castings for the intake and are made here in the USA! The Super Charger in Australia.
Install time is quoted to be 3-4 hours.


Before i install it I will run a Dyno, and then a second Dyno after the install. We will see together the results.... good, bad or indifferent, I will report all.

Here is a picture of the unit, I think it is an amazing design:

That is awesome! Someone has to be first.
I had good luck with hypertech before I put an Avenger in my JK, so for many reasons I will be watching this one!

So, this is really interesting to me. A roots style blower construction, but utilizes a centrifugal-style mount. Injectors are upgraded I assume? I would love to know what kind of power this thing makes compared to the RIPP system, I didn't even know it was an option when I put my blower on.

I am definately interested to see how this goes, does it come with an intercooler?? I just installed the RIPP gen 2 and very happy with it, but this definately is a really good design for a roots style blower..

Just because you bought every bolt-on accessory available for your jeep, doesn't mean you know WTH your doing or talking about...

Does not need an intercooler due to its arcatexture, the positive displacement SC has MUCH lower gas temps!

posted on another forum "what is the best SC for our JK?" got about 5 different units... RIPP, Sprintex, 505, Avenger and one other... looked into them all, and did a lot of reading and self education... Sprintex seems as it will be the best out there... and CARB approved!!!!

Doesn't matter if you're an actual dealer or not, the only posts you have on here are about this SC, so you sure as hell are probably getting something from them for schlepping their product. Just saying...

Speed has never killed anyone - suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you!
