Supercharged 3.6L Pentastar

So i came across, i think the first possible supercharged 3.6L pentastar. It is by RIPP superchargers and they did it on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler JK. Here is a video and i think they have posted couple more realted to that particular jeep.

The Jeep link was first posted here B&G 3.6 V6 Tune.... How many would be interested??

What boost are they running? Almost any motor will be fine wih really low levels of boost and alomg with that a modificaton to a car no matter what it is can actually do nothing performance wise unil its tuned properly...

Here...ive been installing this all weekend Attachment 52035

...granted not a challenger at all...but its still a turbo on a car that is not tuned for it and guess what it runs...BUT we are not driving it over 3k and about 25% throttle and he is buildig no the car is will run and not blow up...enough to drive it...but not mash on it...(we are taking it to the tuner in the morning)

So good for them..they installed a supercharger on a car and it duh...thats not a surprise...did the ecu learn that there is a s/c on their and change air/fuel ratios to run it well? My guess is a big fat NO...

And honestly i would never install a piece of forced induction equipment on my car amd let the ECU try and tune it...i want some one to look at it and who knows what they are doing tune it properly and get the most out of it possible in the safest way possible...

*edit* i just looked on their site and they do not seem to be selling this kit...thats because they cant tune it, so motors have an almost gaurantee they will blow up and/or the supercharger will make no real difference in power.

Do you have any more links to this building boost and making serious power? Or just them starting it up and not even revving it.

I will say this though its a step in the right direction on a whole for the 3.6 thats awesome!!

I have a dumb question. Does putting a supercharger on your v6 reduce the life span of the engine?
Adding a SC to my 3.6 might be an option for me after i pay it off and i still want to keep the car.
