Earthshaker build

This has been a long time coming. I started working with my dealer in June. The car is currently at Hennessey getting the HPE650 package. The guys there sent me pics of the build.

Once she gets here, I have the Borla S-Type axle back, and Oracle Helos (in red for the headlights and foglights), Oracle turn signal lights, LED tail lights, and 1" lowering springs. Santa has been great to me!!!

Not yet. Talked to Hennessey and the dealer today. It is expected to ship by the end of the week. I hope to have it early/mid next week.

The internals were only top end. Cam with ported heads. From the prior customers I have talked with, the bottom end is stong enough for what it has.

You are right on both accounts...good looking photos you sent me and I am ready to get her home! I do want to say thank you for making this as easy as possible (considering the dealer is an idiot! The dealer is NOT a Hennessey approved dealer. I hear they are top notch also. I really should have went that way, but hey...she is almost home!). Hennessey has been top notch all the way. Staying in touch...dealing with my 100+ questions...dealing with me calling or email ALL THE TIME! You guys are great! Next up, final photos, shipping, perma-grin!!!

Day and night pics with the side marker lights and afterburner taillights. I also have 12% smoke tint on the lights with 35% tint on the side and rear window. These pics do not do the lights justice! These things are awesome! Thanks AAC for the best product on the market!!!
