Do the pistons already look burnt or what? They do not look in good shape at all.

I did ask about that and was told that is a combo of the oil, sweat & dust, and not to worry as they are going to clean it during the rebuild.

09/28/2010 - Update from Hennessey - "Good afternoon. We are aiming for later this week but it may roll over into the first week of October. I always plan for the worse and hope for the best. Right now they are waiting on a gasket to be installed then dyno tune the vehicle. No new photos at this time."
.
SOOO CLOSE
