Question reputable engine shop in Virginia or N Carolina for Whipple/Pro Charger install...

After getting burned by someone here on the board who came "highly recomended" for engine work, I am interested in finding someone close to home who installs Whipples or Pro Chargers for a marine environment. I am looking for a real shop, not a part time mechanic.

I want to be able to walk into a shop before I even THINK about doing anything...

Any help is appreciated!

Central Boat Sales by Smith Mountain Lake has installed some Prochargers and I think are a dealer for them. One of the owners is Johnny Ford. I would give them a call, or I suggest Tyler Crockett in MI, hes far away but he knows exactly what he is doing.

Good luck

Sent a lengthy PM and found out your box is full

Anyway the builder we use in Richmond only does carburated motors and though he used to have a store front he now builds a dozen or so motors out of his garage.

I have been told that John Revis in Stafford, VA does Whipples and Procharges, has a shop that is spotless and it should not be more than an hour from you. A good friend of mine and neighbor has a 2003 single engine Dominator with a 500 efi that he is going to have Revis do for him soon.

I would also highly recommend Sonny Leonard in Lynchburg, VA. He did 2 quad rotor whipples on 572s for a 38 Cigarette in this area. He is a well reknowned builder for marine and street.

pm Mate229, he has a procharger on his Fountain. Maybe he can help you out. I've also heard good things about Sonny.

Joey Griffin near Fountainland could do that installation.
