Supercharged JK/JL/JT 3.6L Jeep Carbon Fiber Sealed air box
This carbon fiber sealed air box features a high-flow washable cotton element air filter internally and is specifically designed for use on RIPP Supercharged Jeep Wranglers.
This system is intended to be used with JK's, JL's, and JT's that have vented hoods so that water does not enter the regular air filter and for those who wish to add some performance and bling factor to their engine bay. This moves the air-inlet from the OEM position to a safer position behind the headlight. If you do not run this and have a vented hood you risk water leaking directly onto the RIPP supplied air filter which will then spill directly into the RIPP Supercharger. This can and will cause a supercharger failure because the supercharger is not designed to compress water. This can also cause permanent engine failure because naturally the engine should not ingest water. Replacement filtration elements only come in one piece, carbon fiber housing and filter.
Note: This will not work on 2007 - 2011 3.8 Jeep Wranglers
Awesome addition to the RIPP supercharger kit.
Really shows off the supercharger. Great quality and fit.
I had the AEV Snorkel installed when I bought my Jeep, but the soft connection finally failed and I wanted to get more air to the supercharger. This was exactly what I needed. Now I just need to close the hole in the hood where the snorkel came through.
This sealed air box system is a must if you own a Wrangler Hard Rock Edition, or have an aftermarket hood that has air vents. The vented hood on my Hard Rock allowed water to drip through the hood when it rained, and it would have landed directly on the other cone filter that was sent to me by RIPP with the supercharger kit. Luckily, I knew this would be a problem before I installed the supercharger by watching other videos, and I had to purchase this to relocate the filter from under those hood vents. The quality of this air box is superb. A must have if you have a true vented hood. I believe this is also what you need if you want to install a snorkel.
