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.

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.

Lingenfelter will meet or exceed your expectations.

There is a reason they are #1 - quality builds, reliable, and exceptional Customer service.

I live in Texas and sent my Vette to LPE wheras I could have gone to Houston and Hennessey. Several years ago the Viper and Vette forums were full of hate mail regarding many law suits against Hennessey. Search for yourself. Sure, I would rather have gone close to home but did not and will not for any future mods. My 2 cents.

I did a tonne of research before deciding where to go and Lingenfelter was the best choice, and I love having a warranty. I have since bought alot of upgrade parts from them, and will be bringing it back to do a cam/pulley/headers upgrade soon.

Lucif3r - You have obviously done some research. Those Viper hoods are not cheap either. I saw a show recently where Jay Leno drove a Maggie charged Camaro from Hennessey and made comments. He does have a way to be seen. Still you cannot change a leopards spots.

Not so much research as I was a regular for years on the Viperalley forums back during that time. Was planning to buy a Final Edition ACR.....then had kids. If I remember correctly, the hoods were right around $17,000.

The best was when he exploded and went nuts on the SRT forums back around 2004~2005!
