    Default Whipple help

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Hi Blown Lavey,
    No need for an engine dyno or a key, you can tune any MEFI controller with the MEFIburn software. Dyno's get you close, but the correct way to tune it is in your boat, with a wide band O2 hooked up and monitoring your air/fuel ratios under all operating conditions. 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.....
