Any part that has a mfg'ing defect will be replaced at no charge within 1 year of ship date. thats our standard warranty. I think your refering to the idler pulley and the fact that somebody ground the spacer (on locating side) it runs on causing it to not run true.
Hello Mr. Whipple:

It is great to hear your delivery and production is now within a 10 day window. I also commend you on bringing the intercooler manufacturing within your control.

As for the idler pulley great recall on the facts but for one point the idler pulley did not line up properly and the installer a [Whipple] dealer ground the wrong side not the customer. Thus, it was not anything I did and should have been covered especially since my delivery was delayed.

I will say that despite our hiccups you do take the time to answer questions from your customers. It is not everyday that a principal of a company does a Q & A with their valued customers.

Keep up the good work and your products will continue to be recommended by me to all my performance boating friends.

Gotcha, I was mistaken and thought you already had one.

That was a D rotor, which I sold and had to ship for the new buyer.

Comment:

I would rather not say because I like my Whipple Dealer and installer he is friend. It was an easy mistake he machined [better word] the front of the idler stand to align the belt properly. When in fact he should have machined the rear portion of the idler stand.

When you machine the front the bearing/pulley will wobble and wear the idler stand down... when your really leaning on it. Whipple should have just said no charge on that as it was obvious the customer had nothing to do with the alteration.

I am really happy with my set-up it puts out monster power rather easily. It sounds like a sewing machine at idle and a jet engine when you peg the boost gauge.

The only difference between the C and D is .25 Liter per rev. At 125 over, which is actually 2.25 over is 20,700rpm, with the new sc, 1.45 ratio ends up at 13,340. Thats a very significant difference in power consumption.

I loved my PSIs....

They only really make sense over 8 pounds of boost. I however am dying to see this new Whipple 10.5/12L....I'd like to build something big and I think this would be a killer combo!

If I built anything again, I would go whipple hands down...

Its very tough to get all the idlers to have perfect alignment on different mfg cylinder blocks and cylinder heads, as there is somewhat of a large variance between dart, brodix, world and GM when you combine cylinder heads bolt pattern to the front cross-over mounting point.
