This I was aware of as well.
My only thing and why I want to know the fine print of these warranties, is will they really honor it or give you a hard time when trying to claim....
A phone call with them will have my questions answered

a stock 545 will never hold up once you add F/I...maybe if you detune it with tq management but what would be the point then.

Yep, that's exactly where we are 400whp MAX, and still have to not beat it.

Buddy of mine just bought a bullseye turbo and is going to fab up a kit for his express. If you can get the welding done it is cheaper than a supercharger without the parasitic loss. You're still limited by the powdery pistons, but it would be the strongest 6-8 lbs you could put on the engine.

He's redoing my 545 to. I notice on mine sometimes when pulling hard with a magnuson that the 3/4 shift flares or just won't kick in on the highway in a passing situation. Needs a few more clutches in there.

Finally got mine installed Saturday...

The best part of the Ripp kit is you can DIY in your own driveway with basic hand tools...

Comes with custom tuning emailed to me by Ripp after I sent them a copy of my stock backup and last tune written,
along with a list of current mods, then it was just and play on my Diablo Trinity

I was a little intimidated at first, but broke it down into bite sized chunks over a couple weekends

I swapped the 180º T-stat 3 years ago and the Big E-Fan swap/clutch fan delete last year both made things a lot quicker.

I did the spark plug swap last weekend along with mounting the intercooler and pump/hoses.
(also replaced front brake pads and rotors as they were down to almost nothing)

Took a couple hours the following Friday to swap in the larger injectors, MAP, PCV valve, T in the vac line...etc.



Saturday afternoon the new drive belt and the larger pieces and brackets bolted right in.
Relocated my Catch Can, installed tune and fired it up...










100% driveway install, 1 man job






and Holy Crap does it Pull Hard !!!
it was already fast at 13.8's NA...now it's so quick its scary!
With my Edge stall it has instant power at launch! Can't wait to see new track slips!

Best $4K I ever spent !!! Thank You Ripp!

next phase:
triple gauge pod to be wired in,
Water/meth kit from Alcohol Injection Sytems install,
L&M customs "built" transmission install and tuning and an ATS Triple Lok 3K stall

all parts are in, just need to find time to install everything
