Yeah it certainly works with the AEV but it does decrease your HP by about 30...
Ripp is testing with the ARB snorkel now but it looks more promising and I beleive they have tested with the River Raider but I will have to double check.

Theres a conversion/adaptor kit RIPP has available for the ARB Snorkel so you won't loose the 30hp in non required snorkel conditions.

Not sure I follow...Ripp hasn't released the dyno with the ARB to my knowledge and the conversion kit only allows for use with the snorkel I do suppose you could take it off when you do not need the snorkel but you would still have to swap air filters out.

My Bad, I meant to say AEV...Too many dang abbreviations out there!

On the ARB note, I can see it being more promising than the AEV because the intake stays about the same diameter throughout the entire design.

No worries,

Yeah the ARB does seem promising but I just do not like how it is mounted...The River Raider H1 style has attracted me some but after running the AEV previously on my last JK I am still in the air about putting on a snorkel.

It is funny though because that is the one upgrade that the good ol' ball and chain wants to see on the Jeep. Just might be something seh will have to get me for christmas lol.

Ditto, old thread, but yes, RIPP sends you a new tune on the Diablo inTune. No, you do not need a new exhaust, but you need some good mechanical skills to install the unit. For top performance from the unit you will need the RIPP headers and exhaust and they have a special tune for that also.

I have a jayco baja pop up camper which is a big heavy popup, 3400 lbs unloaded. it has a 6' platform in front for an atv. Every year i go up to the North Carolina hills (some call them mountains) with elevation between 2500 and 6000 feet above sea level. I just added the RIPP SC this year and can tell you the difference was huge. Before the supercharger, there were some hills with 7% grade that I would be in 3rd gear doing 30mph at top of hill. this year with supercharger, I could maintain 50-55 mph in 5th gear. only on one occasion close to Asheville on a 7 mile 7% incline hill did i have to drop it to 4th gear.

I can tell you, that I live in a state with average elevations the highest of all 50 states (Colorado) and the Ripp Gen II SC has made one hellava difference in doing the hills. Most in overdrive, some in 5th. I am running a custom tune from another programer that is even better than the one Ripp supplies...wow, nice to have 300 horses at your command.

What custom tune do you have and who is it from. How did you get the tune and does it work as flawlessly as the Ripp tune.
