A couple of people on here, have posted they had nothing but trouble, with aftermarket headers.

☝️ This. I'd be more concerned about having to torque header bolts every month and constantly dealing with melted plug wires.

The 3.8 wasn't built for performance. Accept it, move on, and enjoy your Jeep. If you want speed, do a Hemi or LS swap. Or buy a sports car. You're asking for trouble trying to eek HP out of the 3.8.

If I decipher this correctly, didnít you answer your own question? Uv saw so manys say its makes a difference and what not uv probably got to see their setups to back that up now ya hear?

so looked into to the header he has and its a shorty not a long tube and from what i have saw on different forms its a known issue on melting plug wires, i havent seen anyone yet having melted wires or having to tighten there blots with the ripp kit yet. also to add there is no tune for those shortys or dyno data to show they make a difference. im not looking to make a race car out of it or peeking the HP on it all im doing is opening it up making it more efficient. im sure your a guy that says a tuner doesnt do anything and thats bullshit it does i have one and i have noticed a power difference yea its very small but its there and so did my MPG it went up by 1.5

I don't understand people like you.
Why are you asking for advice, and then getting upset because someone gave their opinion and experience but wasn't what you wanted to hear.
Sorry, but you won't last long here.

Actually, I run a FlashPaq tune and it does run better and the milage went up about 1MPG, so there's that. I also run a LiveWire Screamin' Demon coil pack and wires which boosted my mileage by about 2-3MPG, so there's that too. I also run a Dynomax exhaust, but that's for clearance, not performance, because I actually wheel my Jeep not try and look cool chasing ladies off base when I'm on leave.

I'm just relaying experiences that others have had and potential issues you may run into to save you some money and frustration.

Judging by this and some of your other posts here, I'm sure you're the kind of guy that doesn't give a shit what others with more experience tell you and just want to be told what you want to hear, so go ahead and put those bad boys on.

Next you'll throw $5k into the Ripp Supercharger and wonder why the bottom end of your 3.8 has extra holes in it a few months later.

While you're doing all this, don't forget the Grumper grill and 22s cuz those add at least 35HP. It must be true cuz I read it in the internet. 🍻

Lol. I spend my money where it counts... No need to spend $800 on headlights or $1500 on a light bar. Or $1600 on headers.

Yeah, I'm old. I put in my time on a manual. I enjoy my automatic and my roof rack. Good luck with your headers. Happy to hear you're not fucking dense enough to do the supercharger and 22s... There may be hope for you yet. Until then, go ahead and fuck off.

Oh, and thanks for your service. 🍻

You're asking about modifying a Jeep because you want to run headers, and you're criticizing another member for driving an automatic? Wow. I have no words.


By the way, as far as the resonator that you asked about earlier, I think installing this in its place will be the best solution for you:

any one have experience with the ripp headers? i mean real first hand experience. yeah i know there not going to turn my 3.8 into a super car just looking to pull a little more power and maybe another 1-2 MPGs out. im pretty well sold on them iv looked at the dyno sheets and its pretty decent, there is definitely a difference according to the sheet, but may main issue is fitment. i have a 2 dr and iv seen a few people complain about not being able to fit the resonator in or having to do some mods to it to make it fit but they did not include pictures or how they modified it to make it fit. im trying to run the headers, resonator and my magnaflow muffler i already have. if any one can shed some light on it please do.

Yes they are garbage. Get hot as fuck and burn shit in the engine bay causing everything to go to hell.

And 1-2mpg? Do you seriously think that is real? You are a fucking retard if you think thatís true.

Here is some math. Assumimg you're getting15mpg. Here in CA you're spending 3.50 a gallon which is approx 23 cents a mile. Say you get a 2 mpg increase now you're spending 21 cents a mile. You have a tank which is 18.6 gallons. So you'd be saving 36 cents a fill up (if you run until completely empty). $1500/.36 = 4167 fill ups to realize the cost savings, great idea! Sounds like a Ripp off to me, but it's you're money though.

Edit: Made a mistake. My previous statement reflected per mile savings not per tank. 17mpg x 18 = 300 miles per tank. You'd be saving approximately $6 a fill up. 1500/6=250 fill ups. Not sure how many times a month you fill up let's say 5 for easy math. At that rate it'd take 50 months to break even. Just over 4 years. More food for though.

I donít think the OP said the headers were for MPG, only small HP gains. If they pick up 25 HP it would be in line with full length headers on old 145-250 HP engines so not an unreasonable expectation.

The engine bay is pretty jacked on these things, and heat control is enough of an issue that many members have cut their hoods to put slotted panels for removing the hot air so installing long tubes without coating or taping them is probably a bad idea.

To get real benefit from the headers the exhaust and injection maps need to be changed and possibly the throttle body. The idea is to get more fuel and air into the engine and more used fuel and air (exhaust) out of the engine.
