Thanks to Mark Cook for incredible customer support
HUGE THANKS to Mark and Chris for making this happen! First of all, I did call Mark and Chris a few times while installing to ask a few questions. They always answered and were very helpful. Great customer service.
I have a 97 Wrangler Sport 4.0 manual trans, 128,000 miles with 4.56 gears and this thing is quick!
Installation took me roughly 20 hours but this was my first endeavor with forced induction and this was a leisurely weekend job with other distractions.
The kit came with everything for the install. I could definitely tear it down and put back together in just a few hours if desired.
Stock internals and running safely at 7 psi and using the tune that came with the split second FTC. So NO adjustments were necessary for me living at altitude of 5300 ft.
There is a huge difference in how well/smooth it takes off from a stop and throttle response is amazing! Give it WoT and this thing takes off! Have not hit any trails yet but I have no doubt in its capabilities.
This is a daily driver jeep and I love every minute of it.
I ordered my kit from EBay on Dec 13 , 2016 and I didn’t get the kit until Jan 13, 2017 due to an issue with the tuner. Apparently Mark discovered a problem with the Split Second tuner for the 05/06 Jeep Wrangler TJ. I spoke with Mark about the tuner issue several times during the month that I waited. I got the kit and it was well packaged and appeared to be good quality. I started the install and got the supercharger mounted in about an hour. I did notice that the “tub” sat right on the injector rail, hopefully it will not be an issue later. The bracket bolted on perfectly. The belt was kind of a pain but it worked out nicely. Got the SS tuner installed with no issue. The only problem that I found during the install was the throttle cable bracket. The throttle only went half throttle. I removed the bracket & elongated the holes, then adjusting the bracket per throttle. My 2006 TJ runs well. No issues so far. I may need to go with the mid-boost pulley for more power. I live in Kansas and with the stock pulley it seems like it may need a bit more boost. I’m happy withe the BoostedTech supercharger kit. I will recommend it to all of the Jeepers here in the Kansas Flatlands.
I just want to say thank you to Boosted Technologies. They do a very good product. I love it. My supercharger in my Cherokee…I feel like I’m driving a completely different car. The power is excellent. It has a lot of more power. I just love it. It’s great. It feels like I’m driving a V8 very strong powerful car. Thank you very much Mark for helping me with this. I appreciate it, thank you! I am so happy with it.
First and foremost I have to give Mark, Rick, and the rest of the crew a job well done. I’ve had this kit on my truck for a week now and can say WOW!! This truck ran well before but had a bad habit of kicking out of overdrive all the time. This made highway driving a chore. Low end power was helped by regearing from 3.55 to 4.10. However there was something missing. This kit was what it was missing. Highway manners are awesome, no more annoying downshift at the slightest incline. Low end torque is well, INSTANT!! It won’t hesitate to turn 35 inch tires or sling some mud. I have a 18ft goose neck trailer and compact tractor I pull on occasion and hope Mark will let me add how that goes next time I need to pull it. I have no doubts the extra torque will make that chore easier as well. The tech support is amazing and the people are real and easy to talk to. If I had 100 of these trucks I would put this kit on all of them. Absolutely filled the gap where this motor needed it.
I can’t give a honest fuel consumption comparison yet due to my inability to keep my foot out of it 🙂 I’m running 6psi @ 1000ft elevation with 3 in pulley. 2006 ram 1500 quad cab 4X4 4.10 gears and 35×12.5 pro comp tires.
Got some needed repairs taken care of. It’s up and running strong! More or less magically bad ass while in boost. Impressive pull through sand spinning 35s like a boss! Thanks for all your help! TJ woke right up and I m wearing a smile ear to ear!
This review documents my experience with your Supercharger Kit. In short, nicely done. I purchased this kit in early September 2016. I received within two weeks. The product was well packed and included all necessary parts for my vehicle. I was impressed with both the quality and general appearance of the custom machined parts in this kit. After taking a deep breath, I began the installation process. I have slightly above average mechanical skills and found the parts fit well. I contacted you (Rick) about two times with some technical questions which he easily answered. It took me about three leisurely afternoons to complete. I was also detailing the engine bay at the same time. My guess, I could probably do it in about six hours if I worked straight through. I also followed the recommendation to get a lower temp sparkplug and gapped them down.
After installation, I turned the key and it started immediately. From my initial drive, it has performed flawlessly. I have a 2001 Jeep TJ with 60k miles I purchased new. The jeep has 3.73 gears and 29 inch tires. I have stock exhaust and a k&N filter in the stock box and am operating at sea level. Using an ultra gauge, I timed my 0-60 times after installation at 7.51 sec. I was not pushing too hard and think I probably left about 0.5 sec on the table. I have about 1000 miles since installation and again, no problems. The vehicle sounds and drives completely stock unless I put my foot down.
This is an impressive looking and performing kit. I’ll advise when I hit 10k miles. Again, Nicely done.
Jeep is great, runs real strong
Thank you for the support and an awesome affordable product! The supercharger works perfectly and the power difference is astonishing. I got the low boost pulley that came with it and don’t even think I need the med or high boost for my needs. The tuner came set up and was truly plug and play. It may need some minor adjustments but I have drove it so far with the tune on it! Couldn’t be more pleased.
Dont know if i ever sent you a picture. going to run the smallest pulley and spray methanol. already beat a v8 explorer, 300zx, and a prius haha
Very pleased with results, excellent cost to benefit ratio. Installed on 2005 Wrangler TJ with73K miles, 4.0 L, 4.56 gears and 35 inch tires. Home is at 7400 feet altitude. With the standard pulley it is a much improved driving experience. Hills where the Jeep would lose speed at highway speed I can now accelerate up in third gear. Smooth and much faster acceleration from standstill to 60 MPH. Increased tire size to 37 inches without changing gearing with no loss of performance.
I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with the SuperCharger. First off let me tell you about my Jeep. It’s a 93YJ with a factory 4.0, 6 speed and transfer case out of a Rubicon. It has 1 ton axles and 5:13 gears turning 40″ tires. These things weigh 150lbs with wheels. The whole Jeep is 4600lbs. Needless to say it was way under powered for living in Colorado and just about any other place. To drive from my house in Durango to Silverton/ Ouray I would have to gear down to 3rd just to keep it around 45mph. Yesterday after swapping controllers, I was able to drive the same passes in 5th sometimes hitting 70mph! I was blown away. I actually had to back out of the throttle?! My girlfriend is the one who talked me into the SuperCharger instead of the V8 swap. I’m glad I went with the SuperCharger, it’s a torque monster. The girlfriend a keeper, by the way.
Off-road is just like on road. The SuperCharger makes tons of power that is usable almost all the time. It makes climbing easier and keeps the motor from bogging down. This is especially important when you wheel at 12,000 ft. It just plan works everywhere.
Yes it has been trying at times but in the end, it was well worth it. My Jeep is a Beast!
Thanks for all of your effort and hard work. You make a great product that I am proud to tell people that I have.
If you or anyone else need more info on my install don’t hesitate to call.
