By now you should know that the Whipples keep busting . Several guys have sent their blowers to Whipple for various repairs including bearing replacement , rotor replacements, jack shaft upgrades. So far nothing has resolved the issues and they keep breaking . It's obvious that Keith Cring of KDI did not perform sufficient R&D on the product prior to putting it on the market. It wasn't tested properly and was never proven to work effectively, efficiently. Also, when it did work it wasn't any better than a stock or stock ported blower. It did not make any more power than a stock blower. I don't know of one guy that is still running his Whipple . So basically guys are stuck with a $7200 paper weight. Keith knew there were problems with the blower and he kept selling them, touting how great it is, blah , blah.
He also stated that the Whipple came with a warranty which it did not . Fortunately, Whipple came through for some, possibly all the guys , and did repairs at no charge. I'm sure they did this to help Keith out . The bottom line is Keith sold an untested, unproven inferior product. He also grossly misrepresented the power capabilities of the unit . He has screwed over a LOT of guys, not just guys that bought whipples. Whipple may also have some liability here as they sold the head unit with its name stamped on it. I have several emails from Mike at Whipple that will not help Whipples case.
The damage is much more than $7200, the cost of the blower. A new hood had to be purchased ($1500+), cost of removal and installation, shipping both ways, etc.
If you bought a Whipple and want to explore various options to recover the money you've spent please send me a PM
