Default Doug Rippie DRM 480 questions

I am seriously considering installing a DRM 480 package, basically this is their 383 conversion for a LT1/4. This is a lot of wood to shell out so I thought to get some input from all of you first.
Anyone has experience with Doug Rippie's work first hand? How does Rippie compare to Lingenfelter?
Any input would be appreciated!
Thanks guys and gals. :)

everything I have heard is good... but I have not direct experience. I would like to know what the world does think on this, too... I am considering the same kinda upgrade in the future.

Sames as bogus. However, DRM charges alot. You can get the same numbers or betterif you do your homework, and instal it yourself or have a local shop do the work.

Reference this post http://forums.corvetteforum.com/zerothread?id=177204

Alot was discussed about the DRM team. The ydo top quality work and make sure you are completely happy. It has a warranty which you won't get buying and doing it yourself. The other factor is when you resell the car, the work has been done by a recognized shop and not Joe Shmoe.

Actually I have not seen many Forum members with DRM setups.

I have bought alot from DRM. I have always been happy. I deal with Peter and he is willing to take any amount of time you need to talk about any of their products. I learned the hard way about dealing with the small guys. It will end up costing you more when the big boys fix it.
