IMO, the JT motor doesnt produce enough exhaust to spool a turbo fast enough to destroy a SC. A SC has a more consistent power increase through all RPMs in a V6. And this engine is plenty powerful to turn a SC. Turbos are great for V8's .

you know how many turbo 4s there are that make huge power?
the v6 is just fine to spool a turbo, Get a small twin scroll, it'll spool like instantly.

Very true. I wonder if/when a turbo kit will be available for the JT? Hell at this point, engine or not, I just want my JT!

If little 1.6 liter Hondas can benefit from turbo kits,so can a 3.6L v6

I emailed RIPP to ask about the missing JL kit. Here's the reponse:
it is coming, our IT guys posted it too early, it was not
supposed to be made public yet. We're about 2 months out on JL systems.

I will say, they've taken a very long time to get the kit out but they want it perfect. I've had mine on since March with absolutely no issues. But considering all the negative press the turbo company has been getting, it's better to wait for RIPP and all the other S/C companies to get their system before going to market and blowing customers engines.

I emailed them as well and they said the JT SC from RIPP will be ready for production this year so I am guessing around X'mas... I am not sure if I want to do the V8 Hemi engine swap and might try out the RIPP supercharger when it is available... It doesn't make sense for me cuz if I want to spend that kind of money might as well get the ICON FJ 40 and I would get to enjoy both the Jeep and the FJ40 :involve:

I was early adopter on the RIPP for JK. Got a discount for being first. It was a nightmare. It took about 2 years total to get a usable tune. As it sits now, it is not perfect still. However, the additional power is great. I will wait this time for some of this to shake out, but still intend on adding a supercharger.

I thought the hemi used a different bolt pattern but could be wrong.
