Default Whipple HP525

I am considering a Whipple for my Laveycraft 27 Cat HP525. I need a dealer in my area (Tennessee) for purchase and installation. Whipple is not my only consideration but my research shows that it is very reliable. Any ideas? Thanks. Quent.

http://www.offshoreonly.com/esvon/page-6558.html don't know if that will help you or not. Give Dustin a call and he can let you know a dealer and approximate time you could expect delivery. Good luck.

Try Mark at Precision Marine in Kenner La. # is 504-469-7463.He is a Whipple and Procharger dealer . He knows what new computer system to put on the 525 and also has a in house Dyno.He is the only one in this area that can program the ECM's

The Whipple will be a good bit more expensive that a procharger but the Whipple is a much nicer and compact package .The problem is you will have a hard time buying one . there having a supply problem.I am glad I bought a Whipple and I made some real good #'d .I just hope I don't have trouble with it ,if they have a hard time getting them I wonder about parts for them.

Give Mark a call.

When I was looking for Whipple for my truck...I found out that the compressor manufacture from Sweden was the problem and can not meet Whipple's demand or supply....he is to busy making them for Ford and Mercury
I also checked for 2 for the boat.......they do not know when they will have them....their answer in May was about 8 months to a year

Sounds like you've given up the little rocket rides too. Welcome to OSO..............
I have your guy. EB Marine here in Nashvegas. Call me if you still have my cell and I'll hook you up with him. Great wrench, very reasonable pricing. Whipple does have 2.2s, but the 3.3s are in short supply at this time.
Regards,
Steve
PS PM me if you don't have my #s.
