I thought it was the ultimate sleeper until I saw an SRT8 owner checking out the inner cooler. When he saw me, he said "Whatcha got going on under the hood?" Busted!
Hahaha I would've trolled him saying that it helps make the blow off whistle in my exhaust sound better ?

For you guys running the RIPPs, which gears do you run? Do you still use the puny stock diff or did you upgrade? A few months ago I went with a 3.90 LSD and R/T axles for my 2019 G/T RWD, that's why I'm wondering.

I'm still running with the 3.06 ratio which is what my car came with as part of the Super Sport Group.

The RIPP tune is fat and super safe. I supercharged my '12 SXT+ back when Tidalwave was developing their package. Mine was one of the first cars that had the "package" instead of them buying the parts and making them work. The tune that was developed for the package was done by DTP Racing and without getting back into the tune and taking it apart, I'm pretty sure it's going to be very close to the RIPP tune. These are general tunes and by necessity have to be safe for their warranty. The initial tune took me from 249.7 RWHP to 439.6 RWHP. Not bad, but I've since done a few more mods that compliment the supercharger and have been working with Josh at High Horse Performance to discover what we could do with the 8 PSI pully arrangement that I have. The result....501 [email protected] 7000 RPMs! BTW, I have over 20k miles on my 3.6 since supercharging it.I wanted a tune that wouldn't put too much strain on the engine since I still drive it on the road a lot and I think we've got that.

I've been debating on taking it to the next level by putting a 75HP shot of nutritious on it with a window switch programed to help me launch the car then taper down to off as the boost builds, but I'm not sure the gains would justify the $3K price tag.

Anyway, the wife said I can get a used Hellcat after her car is paid off and the first thing I'm going to do to it (even before I get it home) is to take it over to HHP and have them put their 1000HP kit on it.!:rolleyes:?

My whole deal with trading up my car is the color configuration I have. Jazz Blue Pearl (PBX) with the Pearl/Black interior. Not many cars got the pearl interior. So swapping out for a different color car is not an option for me. Not unless the Chicago Bears change colors! So for me, a Supercharger would be my upgrade. Insurance is still for a V6. I would have to go with 93 octane, which is fine until gas prices shoot back up! Plus, my car is paid off now. So any boosting/mods is done with money I save up, at my pace.
