Hennessey? LMI? BWoody? FastlaneTurbo? Oh the decisions!

I think Im leaning towards the Hennessey at the moment.....with LMI a close 2nd. Bwoody is the collest looking...buut I dont wanna mess with my washer bottle. the Fastlane is too raw looking. Hoping Volant comes out soon...i guess....LOL.

If you do the Hennessey get a dry charger. I have noticed water spots on the intake. I'm assuming it's coming in the heat vents in the hood. Plus, I think it looks better. You will notice a difference in throttle response. There was a huge change in mine, it was a real slug until I put on the CAI. Salesman on test drive said "Isn't this quick" and I said NO! He had no clue to what else I drive or have driven. Keep up the good modden. And thanks for your contributions.

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Volant would have one if someone in the SoCal region could loan a Jeep to them.

Maybe modify a 5.7L Volant to fit?

How so? They need a vehicle to design, test fit, and finalize the product I'm guessing?

Didnt mean the statement to be structured or sound harsh towards you Mongoose.

This is the last statemnt they should give any potential customer.

This should be a aftermarket bolt on manu's Forte. They design products for new vehicles. They are saying they have not yet begun designing a product for the SRT WK2 Jeep..........that has been out for over a year......and just happens to capture one of the most popular bolt on markets for the SUV segment .....and they're in CAL ! Sorry, I dont buy it. That is downright LAZY my man. Hell, a plastic tube, a filter and a surrounding heat shroud would be better offering than whats on the market right now.

They have had 1 year to beg anyone on "these and those" forums, in their area of CAL to come get a free CAI and probably a few dyno pulls. Hmmm, havent seen them anywhere.

IMO, this is why I think its BS and a FAIL for a manu to make a statement like that since so much time has passed. They just have the Cruise control set ready to buy one of the other leading manu's offerings only to tweek here and there and then send their version out..

HeHe!

Rant off

It's all good. I have no idea of long it took Volant to offer a CAI for the WK1, so I don't have anything to compare it to. I really don't know how long it took for any of the WK1 CAIs to hit the market. I bought and started modding my WK1 about 3 years after its debut, by then any part was available. I figure it'll be another year or two before the WK2s really start to be modded.

LOL nah Scott I just have a big problem with his lies, deceit, and just overall scummy business practices. Here is quick read I found for you in a couple seconds check this out and his attitude in the 300c thread as well.

I'm not a fan or foe of Hennessey, but some allegations and internet smack talk from 6 years ago won't deter me from buying a product if I think it's a quality product.

I think I'm going to go Hennessey for the CAI also and perhaps do the cold air tubing, have to think about the tubing though.
