Whipple

Word to the wise, do not pay for a Whipple unless you have the blower in your hands.

They are running into problems with the supplier.

This is information from Dustin.

when was this taken in place? They have heard from me already, since I am having some problems with mine, so I have to send it back in and see what the hell is going on with mine. I already have a claim number and everything, just waiting on the tech to call me to tell me what to do!

I sell Whipples and recently delivered one and the problems are in Whipple's housings. They thought they would be fixed by now but they arent! The waiting time on most Whipple superchargers is 3-6 months still! I had a customer order one for their Ranger and it only two weeks to get but it arrived DAMAGED! He was pissed as was I. It is now taking them forever to ship the damn thing back out! It's been a month and still no word when they will ship it back out! I dont recommend Whipple to anyone anymore and I would advise anyone looking to do one to use the 2500+ as a down payment on a 4.0.

No No, its good man! Its driveable and all, I fixed the problem temporary for now!

Some jack*** put a knife to my vaccum line and that is why I wasn't getting any boost lately, and I've been having problems with it though, just it wasn't really affecting it at all, and now it just doesn't seem to do its thing anymore! LOL...It works when it wants to, I still get from point a to point b though!

No worries for the weekend man! i will show you what I am talking about though!

I sold one and it shipped pretty prompt once a pricing issue got worked out. This has been in the last couple of weeks.

hmmm interesting...., but 2,500 will get you more than a down payment on a 4.0, you can usually find one for less than that..

4.0 + EE S/C = Drool

The damage issues from Fed Ex for the one I delivered just now got cleared up after two months of fighting with Whipple. I DO NOT recommend them at all!

Whipple just raised prices also by the way. Again, you can use it as a downpayment for a 4.0L for sure now. Whipple is making a HUGE mistake.
