I would not recommend leaving out the injectors. Doubt your SC would do so well trying to sip an ocean thru a straw.

It took me about 10 hours over two days to install my RIPP SC. And that was only because I was taking my sweet time to clean the engine compartment while I was installing everything. If you are not a clean freak like me, you can do this SC install in about 6-8 hours using normal everyday tools lying around the garage. Very easy!

This is the best mod I've done to my JK. Yes, I'd rather keep my RIPP SC than have the large tires and lift! The power difference is unbelievable. Even on 37's, I know I can out-power a '12 that is on stock tires.

Im not worried about doing the injector swap i just wasnt sure if the stage 1 came with new injectors, what gears are you running with your 37's?

I am running 5.38's with my 37's...in addition to the Gen2 Stage 2 (intercooler) RIPP SC.
Where I live (an hour West of Atlanta) it is hilly, and I often tow a trailer. So, this makes a great combination. Extra power and the proper gearing.

one more question in the install video on Ripps website it shows coping the stock file and sending it in to be tuned, but the install instructions do not mention doing this, is this not needed with the new tuner being used?

thanks guys
Jim
