Who in town can unlock the computer and do some dyno tuning on my Whippled hp500efi? I want to go through the motor and tune the efi as its too rich on the bottom end. Thanks.

Did you fix your motor? If so it must have not been bad........ good news.
Not yet hence the thread, Im so pissed about the Bennington deal that I told the wife F**K it and we are looking at other options now.

Nice stuff but without an engine dyno and the key, you cant change the program.

Gary, I would check with Aaron at Absolute.
Bernie at BMC Machine San Juan Ave. LHC did much of the mock up work for Whipple's boat applications and still machines parts for Whipple. You can't get much better help that him for a Whippled motor.
Glad to see your getting the cat back together,hopefully the damage is minimal,might want to ask Lance(Oster),I still think he's the best kept secret in Havasu...
There is a guy here in Albuquerque,doing bunches of EFI marine stuff,if your interested,I can get his number for you...
It is what it is
If you're are going to dyno it, I would highly recommend Larry's Engine in Tucson. Anything high performance I deal with goes to Peto's shop. He's done a few motor re-mapping jobs for me and I have nothing but good things to say. He's also done some big hp carb blower motors for me. I also know Pfaff can do it, they seem to have a loyal following, I haven't worked with them personally. If you have the o2 sensor welded in your exhaust, Pfaff could do at the lake for you. I not sure but Id be willing to bet Dustin at Whipple could program it as well.
Hey stalker, don't go away mad, just go away.
I do have the bung for the o2 sensor, want to have the motor freshened and remapped as it always been a little rich on bottom. Looking for someone local that can do both. If I were closer to Peto that would be my first choice.

You would be surprised at how much difference there is between an engine perfectly tuned on an engine dyno and then how it performs once installed in the boat.
Gordon from Pfaff's and I may be out in Havasu in the next week or 2, give me a shout if you need help or want more information.
Gordon did some work for a friend of mine. Blown 540 with whipple. He charged a ton of money and still didn't get it correct. He did it a couple of times and LETS JUST SAY,,,,,
HE WON'T BE USED AGIAN ON ANY OF OUR NEW STUFF OR WILL HE GET A RECOMMENDATION FROM US.
GORDON DID NOT TUNE IT EVERY 200 RPM'S and DID NOT CHECK THE 5 SETTINGS EVERY 200 RPM'S AS HE SHOULD HAVE.
There are a few other people in Havasu and the LA area who can help.......
STAY AWAY FROM GORDON.....
