I suspect it will be better than most.

Please post weight information when you can.

Thanks

the net weight gain is someplace in the 55-60 lb range.

So is the 562hp and estimate at the crank or is Hennessey just pulling numbers out of thin air. I wouldnt be surprised if it's the latter.

I am sure the 562 HP is rated at the crank. The car will be that and then some.

If the G8 GXP put down 553rwhp with a maggie and CAI, I wouldn't think it a stretch for this car to put down 562rwhp...I don't understand why they would show a chassis dyno, then quote flywheel numbers...but again, they are selling a product. Seems rather curious to me FWIW.

The GXP in question did have a small Cam....out of a ZR1. Our GXP put down 509 rwhp through the A6.

I believe all of Hennessey's packages are rated at the flywheel.
So I take it the initial pulls are around 480rwhp? The numbers are probably initial, shakedown runs, wouldnt be surprised if we see a good deal more after final tuning. And if not, 110+ rwhp gain is nothing to sneeze at.

In the vicinity of 480rwhp. Hennessey is planning to send his tuner out to complete his tune next week.

I will be adding this eventually, but it has been a while since I had a car with this much power to weight ratio. I will be driving it a little before I go uping that number......bikes are a whole different animal, that's what I am used to.

My opinion....Magna did some initial runs to baseline and told HPE the numbers, and in there quest to garner customers asap, HPE released a somewhat true number to build sales on, could be higher, but won't be less!
