Lingenfelter vs. Hennessy

Hey guys,

I live in Vancouver, Canada and have a black 2SS auto, with grey rally stripes, new 20" wheels, painted GM ground effect kit, tint, and Eibach 1" lowering springs. Would like to put a 600 hp supercharger @fly by reputable company.
What are your thoughts about Lingenfelter vs. Hennessy?

Cheers,
Bob

Can't go wrong with either but I love Nickey Chicago. If you haven't checked them out it's worth a look.

Look up Davenport in Calgary. They can put a car together that will make the power for the same money, or less. Talk to Nimala.
They have done this before, making better "kits" for better money.
They do a ton of Vettes and Camaros.

LPE>Hennessey I got turned off to hennessey after reading about all the lawsuits people filed against him for ripping them off 100+ thousand dollars.

Lingenfelter was my choice from day one. They have exceeded both my expectations, and performance standards! While I have no experience with Hennessey, LPE has blown me away with their customer service, and quality of build! Give Ryan, or Kevin a call you wont be sorry.

Another thing to keep in mind. LPE can and will build you about anything you want. While they have standard packages, they are also very good with the custom wild builds to over 1000 horsepower.

You're in Canada and are considering shipping your car to Hennessey in So Cal or SE Texas? Surely there's a capable shop closer than that. Those guys would have to have some serious magic for that to be a viable alternative. Not saying there's anything wrong with their service, but I live 14 miles from them and have yet to do any business with them.
