I bet it's a new 1900 Maggy'.

I could've swore I read in a post buy one of the Maggy' guys, on another forum, that he's running 8 psi with a TVS 1900 and got 475 to the tire. Maybe Hennnnneeeesssseeeeyyyy is running a 2300 at low boost. That would almost make sense, as that 8 psi TVS 1900 would be making probably around 550 at the flywheel.

Meh - I'd just find me a TVS 1900/2300, catback, maybe upgrade the OEM rotors (if that's even necessary) and a tune and call it a day. Like you guys are saying - you're paying for the name. If that's what ya' like, all the power to ya'.

I agree.
But, make sure you guys do the 2300, and NOT 1900.

Lingenfelter is better, but you pay A LOT for that name also!
Thats what i'm sayin. Why Why Why would you pay extra for the badges you could have your own supercharger installed. As far as a warranty I'm sure GMPP are gonna offer something.

Good for people with more money than sense.

How much profit do you suppose he's making per Camaro? $10,000?

The good news to me is that it looks like a blower can be added to the motor and with a good tune it will survive. now we just need a smog legal blower,,,,maybe whipple?

just got off the phone whith the whipple boys. they are going to be producing a smog legal kit for it.

kenne bell is also going to make one. looks like we are going to have some nice choices

Soo anyone wanna explain why everyone on here hates Hennessy? Don't they make the Venom 1000? Isn't that the most powerful street car in the world or something like that? I'm not saying they are not overpriced...but I had never heard that they are not amazing performance cars.

"According to a lawsuit filed in Salt Lake City, Utah resident Taig Stewart sent his Viper GTS to Hennessey last May for an engine upgrade to 1100 hp along with several other modifications. For that he wire-transferred $142,500 to Hennessey. The lawsuit states the parties agreed the car would be done by mid-July 2001. As of press time the car was still sitting under a tarp in Hennessey’s shop in Houston. Or most of the car, anyway. Stewart’s suit claims Hennessey sold the car’s engine, transmission, wheels, tires and hood. The suit seeks return of the money, the Viper and “no less than $1 million” in punitive damages. "

"William Walters said he is out over $22,000 after shipping his Corvette to Hennessey for a head and cam package that was never done; he did have five rods bent and a head gasket damaged on the dyno in Hennessey’s shop during an experiment Hennessey tried with nitrous oxide. "

"Bruce Iannatuono said he ordered $8,500 worth of Hennessey parts for his mechanic in Baltimore to install but was only able to use two-thirds of what was shipped, and then only after haranguing Hennessey for six months on an order that was originally promised in five weeks. "

“If you were out of state, man you were fair game,” said Kyle Kent, a former employee at Hennessey Motorsports. When an out-of-state car came in it was sometimes parted out, with the wheels, tires and whatever else looked good going to other cars waiting to be finished or sold outright, according to Kent and others inside Hennessey Motorsports. Then Hennessey would call the car’s owner and try to sell him an upgraded kit. If the customer balked, Hennessey would take parts from other cars in the shop, or just let the job sit.

Kent described one typical disassembly on an out-of-state Viper. “The motor and transmission went into a Durango John was putting together, the brakes went to someone else, the hood went to a guy in Ohio, the rear bumper to South Carolina, man you name it. We had multiple cars like that.”

Another common practice was putting stock parts on what was supposed to be an upgraded car.

“One customer spent $130,000 to $140,000 and that guy thought he had purchased a Venom 650R package which he thought came with the stroker motor,” Kent said. “John told him he was getting a stroker. He was just getting heads and cams.”



do i need to go on?

a 100k camaro that you put together will be twice the car a 100k hennessey camaro would be.

You could cry warranty all you want but after reading up on hennessey do you really think that guy warranties anything?
