Default whipple out of business??

I have called several times the last two weeks and cannot get dustin or anyone else to call me back for tech support. The girl answering the phone says they are still in business but I get the feeling she is the only one there.

I talked with Dustin a few weeks ago. I left a message with my number and he called me back a few hours later. Real nice guy and he gave me alot of good advice!

I have left several messages and no return call. I asked if there is anyone else that can give tech support on the marine whipples and she always tell me that dustin is the only one. I don't want to get caught holding a whipple product if they are out of business and have no support.

Yeah,

I went a few rounds with Whipple also. Your right about support. Dustin is the only one that can answer any questions. There's a guy name Keith that can help with a few small things but for the most part you gotta catch Dustin when he's in the office. My builder had a few problems getting a hold of Dustin also. I had to call and we bothed tag teamed him till we got what we needed out of him.

Thats when my builder decided to go with a guy in in Kenner L.A. who's suppose to be jam up on tweeking the fuel mapping and other things to get the computer right. Don't get me wrong, I've had my Whipple for 4 +_ years and have never had any issues with it. Dustin and the gang put out a jam up product. Most of the time we called to talk with Dustin he was out of town tweeking on other motors.

He's got a great product they just need a few more reliable , knowledgable techs for help when he's not there. I'm waiting to see what my new engine combo pulls on the dyno. We pulled to 4500rpm before it started leaning out and made 570HP. Were a far cry from the 53 to 5400 I plan on running.
I'm hopeing to see close to 675HP!

I have no use for a product without tech support. I dont care how good it is.Chasing people to answer questions about their own product SUCKS!
