    Has anybody tried out the RIPP performance coil packs? Their website says they give you a 10- 15 HP boost and improved fuel economy. Anyone can say it is too good to be true, but let’s see if anyone has real experience with them.

    I had to look... what it doesn't say is if the claimed added power was with a supercharger or just 91 octane fuel. I would bet those are an important part of a S/C built engine. As for our engines, I bet it is close to snake oil. Toyota could tune these engines further but 300k+ miles is better marketing!

    When you supercharge an engine, ignition upgrades are a must. 10-15hp gain with just upgraded coils seems like a stretch. Maybe with a reflashed program in the computer, then if someone reflashed the computer, maybe you wouldn't need the coils to gain the horsepower.?

    It certainly looks that way. If you could really get the kinds of gains they are selling I’d think these would be very popular, but I haven’t heard anyone crowing about them. Plus, not cheap and have to use 91 octane- maybe even a supercharger as Ryan points out!

    Can you say JC Whitney? If you put all their shit on your vehicle, you'd be takin' gas out yer tank and dialin' back the power so as not to fry yer tires. LOL!

    I witnessed this setup on the dyno it did show a 14hp increase and a smoother idle I didn’t go through with it because I want to see longer term usage my truck has only 8k on it so I’ll wait

    I put them in my 19 TRD ORP. I’m happy! After watching their Dyno run online and seeing the numbers I bit the bullet and pulled the trigger. It definitely helps!

    No gains and I'll take that to my grave until I personally see a proper dyno sesh (most are done incorrectly...) that illustrates results.

    This is snake oil and the difficulty and confusion surrounding dyno testing is what fuels it.

    It's simple science. I've been in the car game for decades and these always pop up for each model because there is sheeple money to be taken. The only ones that should be interested are the guys who have fully built their motors, and frankly probably already have a better (custom) solution.

    Unless I missed something I see a guy that says he tried it out and used his butt dyno for results.

    Seems legit.
