Hi guys,
Instead of continuing to wrangle with the unhappy TVS2300 Hennessey offered me a deal to upgrade to their first twin turbo HPE800...

It looks like Hennessey has 2 similar threads on the 800 now:

It looks like when we stroked AND lowered the compression of my LS3 the air demand of the motor was outside the 'sweet spot' operating range of the 2.3l Maggie so we either neeed to go to a higher volume supercharger OR just do twin turbos... Who can say no to TWINS!

We did some paint and a car show here in HOuston that stretched the build out a bit but we're hoping to have it 'finished' at the end of this week. I'm still looking into some interior work after I get the car back though that depends on scheduling of potential media coverage. Can't wait to drive it!!!

Here's a couple of shots showing the Seibon CF hood and trunk with the metallic black paint scheme I added... We put the OEM wheels on for the paint process so these don't show the HRE P43 Monoblocks I have on there now.
