Default No more Whipples available??

I heard a rumor that the company that Whipple buys their blowers from in Europe is going to sell directly to Ford and by-pass Whipple all together. Whipple may take legal action and as of now the company Whipple got their blowers from isn't selling any more blowers to them. What's up with that?? Anyone heard this story? Whipple makes an awesome blower, I hope it all works out well.

If this is true, it sounds like Whipple has little to do with the actual "making" of any blowers...

Come on now guys, even if that happens dustin has always been a stand up guy and frequents the forum here. sometime suppliers and buyers have differences. dustin has always stood behind his name and I'm sure he will in the future.

This is all 42MTI B.S. propaganda!! He just doesn't want anyone else to get any, that way his SUV will be competitive with the cutting edge Nor Techs!!
