The standard wagon makes 520kW/230Nm.
RGM has bolted blowers to dozens of American V8 engines (including 20 Mustangs) so claim to have the experience needed to take a Top Dog title, but wait, there’s more… the power is said to be delivered with more refinement but less effort.
Also fitted to the Jeep is a TRGM-Techniflow dual 76mm stainless-steel exhaust system with ceramic-coated headers to blast out the hot gases with minimal delay. An ECU software download comes straight from the Whipple factory and is fine-tuned by RGM’s team to suit South Africa’s varying climates and elevations.
Each car is optimised on the company’s four-wheel-drive dynamometer and, finally, road-tested.
RGM’s full-house upgrade costs R268 700, including all management hardware and software, and the specialised exhaust. All RGMotorsport upgrades include a six-month or 20 000 warranty (wcf) but extended warranties also available.
