How do you like them? I have the 525efi so the whipple is the only charger for it now. I like the whipple. just don't know what to think about the company.

ordered a kit for the 525, in November of 04. come the end of February still did'nt have it. my customer started to think i spent his money, and never ordered the Whipple. come to pass never got the kit. put the engine back together. ended up doing nothing.

another customer was lost due in part of a similar situation, who as well thought i was full of it. that situation did not end as well a the first.

low and behold i learned what was stated previously, in that a product is only as good as it's support.

being a small business i could somewhat understand how a person could fall behind when they blow-up as Whipple did. and how critical finding quality help and having understanding people around you actually is.

good luck to you.

I sent a few things back about 4 months ago. I am still awaiting my credit. Maybe there is no money left ???

I guess I will try to get a hold of Dustin again tomorrow.

It's a shame if they're out of business or somthing like that. They make a great product. I called a while ago with some questions and the only guy to talk to was Dustin...and he was usually hard to reach. Doesn't make much sense to me business wise to not have tech support available.
