ADM or Lingenfelter or Hennessey or....

Just finished the break in on my '14 ZL1 and I'm thinking about having a 700 or 750 package installed. Looking for input on who would be the best to do the work. I'm 25 minutes from Hennessey, but not inclined to have them do the work based on the volumes of bad press about them.
Any advice/recommendation is appreciated....

I have nothing but good things to say about Hennessey. Love the work they did, great service and turn around. Certainly can't go wrong with ADM from what I hear either.

They had some really bad issues awhile ago regarding their service and quality of work, bad to the point I was surprised they were able to weather the storm (you can find info via Google). Lately I've heard they turned things around.

Google is your friend... Hennessy (viper) there is a lot of negative threads. But with that being said that was a long time ago, and Hennessy has made some incredible vehicles.

Also with that said, there is a lot of negatives about other vendors on this site and shops, it just takes some reaserch.

Me personally, ADM is putting out some of the nicest street cars and dependable. They get my vote.

If I were in the area, I would go to ADM hands down, but I just was not aware of the negative reviews. Thanks guys

They say their under "new management", but my understanding is that John Hennessey is still running the business....and he is at the center of the controversy.

Make sure you look at the dates of the articles too. At least ten years ago. He got to big to fast and add to that supplier problems, and you get bad press. Like I said myself and others I know have nothing but good things to say about there work.

ADM built ZL1's hold every record there is! You will not find a bad review about an ADM built car.

I know....most of them are 2002 to 2004, but they show up in 2010 as well. And the list of complaints and lawsuits on file with the state of Texas is pretty long. I'm not one to pile on, but it's a $60k car and a lot of money for the upgrade (Hennessey is not cheap!), so you can't just discount all of that.
