I love my camaro so don't get me wrong. Why didn't they do all this from the beginning.. Or at least make like a Z28R. GM LS7 CNC Heads on LSX 454 block with a LSX mainifold.. I doubt it adds any extra weight.. They all ready have the parts in the performance mag..

If Hennessey puts a 100,000 mile powertrain warranty and will honor the Federal emissions minimum warranty for parts, then go for it.

GM has deep pockets, Hennessey might get fined a couple hundred thou worst case. GM has to warranty the cars by law or face huge fines.

And you do know the Z/28.R makes 400HP right? It's a factory sealed engine and ECM from GM with an intake restrictor and 6300rpm rev limiter.

Apparently it's virtue is not megapower, but a good chassis.

LSX block are cast iron, so they are heavier than the OEM LS blocks.

Well said. Somehow, all of his screw ups and borderline frauds, regarding how he treated out-of-state customers, didn't really seem to stick and tarnish his reputation. He may have changed his ways, but I'd be far more likely to buy a Prius than give Hennessey one cent of my hard-earned money...

I have some info on this you guys might find interesting. I spoke to Katech about working on my Z/28's engine after getting it and they told me they will no longer install long tube headers on cars. If you want long tube headers, you need to install them first before sending the car to them and sign a wavier stating you installed it prior to sending it to them. By federal law, you aren't even allowed to move the location of catalytic converters, which would happen with long tube headers. It doesn't even matter if it can pass an emissions test after it's been modded.

Who knows. I can pretty much bet that 95% of the posters haven't even done business with them. I like Hennessey. I think they are a bit overpriced, but it's America. He may charge as he so wishes.

wow.... Post 136 on the 300c forum from 2006:

Just for fun, click this link. Type "Hennessey" in the spot for party name, and select "defendant." How many lawsuits can you find?

Not sure any of this has hurt him that much. He seems to be doing well.
