It has option for it but you don't need more force on a 6 rib, already has 450 ft lb of force.

Sorry, I did not see this until this morning or I would have taken some.

The installation looks pretty straight forward, I think it is a 4 or 5 step process in total. I will not be able to do anything until the weekend.

Eagerly awaiting the results of this new fix. My chirp is horrible now that the ambient temps have dropped.

In regards to whipple's service in light of this and the hesitation issue they have really come through for there customers like no other company I've delt with. Consider these are not across the board problems, not every car had alignment or the hesitation issue. Yes we would all like to not be in the percentage of Whipple customers who had these problems, but it amazes me how Whipple doesn't argue or denounce a problem when it's brought to there attention, but rather they listen and and eventually find a remedy to make there customers happy. My hats off to Dustin and the Whipple team.

I agree, their customer service has been really good. My only complaint is the one person that needs to send me a new voucher has not, and I have made attempts since August/September.

But, any and every issue I have had (minus the belt squeals was just a bad IAT2 sensor) they have not questioned the validity of the problem or tried arguing that it is not their problem.

There is no doubt that customer service and customer satisfaction is a top priority of theirs.
