i have an 07 gt and in june i bought the whipple non-intercooled system from cj pony parts and had them install it....a week later the serpintine belt snapped ripping the hood liner all up....a week and a half later they had it fixed with a different idler pully....but it squealled horribly everytime i started it.... so i took it back yet again and had the original idle pully put back on and two days later the belt snapped again.....both breaks occured at a shift.. so they came and picked it up again.....this is the third time it has been back to the shop....its been a week and a half and my car isn't fixed yet....i am very un satisfied with this system and the service that i have recieved[:@]

now, it sounds like an alignment issue with the belt. you
may need to have CJ get with whipple, to install
a shim behind the s/c pulley. this will bring the pulley
out a tiny bit towards the front of the car.
good luck and please keep us updated, those of us
with the whipples would be interested in how you get
your issue resolved.
no its not the allignment they said something about the tensioner was not set right??? i'm very pissed .... the service i'm getting sucks i'm on the phone everyday trying to get my car fixed i'm about ready to tell them to take it off and give me my money back cuz i didnt pay them 5500 bucks for my car to break every week .. and they're not even compensating me in any way for all this crap i've been put through..
well aparently art whipple was rushed to the hospital wednesday night and he was the one handling this whole thing and thats why they cant get it done today and bill at cj's said he's gonna try a belt from napa which i dont think is a good idea but o well......cuz if i have one more problem after this its coming off
