Yeah I saw that on the Red Site. I don't get it though...... it says it's the SRT600 package which is supposed to be blown, yet the seats say TURBO on it. The engine bay cut out shows either a BOV or a Bypass valve. If it is a turbo, it's gotta be a mid or rear mount. Definitely not my choice of setups.:(

Hennessey has a dubious reputation don't they? I've seen some disastrous builds of theirs, not just limited to Jeeps.

I would have tried to get the exhaust tips at least kind of straight! haha

Hennessy has about the worst rep. of a builder you can get! Luckily, John H. doesn't own them anymore so they may be getting better. That dude was a straight up thief. He'd sell parts to people's cars without them knowing then try and upgrade them to better stuff. Example..... a guy sends them his Viper. 8 months go by and nothing. So he pays them a visit. He shows up, no hood, no seats, car is basically stripped. John was trying to sell him his "race seats" and hood which he declined. The story is all over the web on quite a few places. Then he got pissy with John and he called the cops and had the customer arrested. Shocking huh? they just charge crazy stupid prices for under performing setups. I really feel sorry for anyone who buys anything from them. Only good thing about them is customers with more money than sense can buy a turn key ready to go ride....... at an extreme premium.

You said what I pretty much knew. There has been some horror stories. Some of the stuff they've done to R35 GTR's is simply beyond belief! (in a bad way. haha)

I haven't read any of the GTR stuff but I can only imagine. Of course, I'm not really trying to research Henny either. Haha. We kept trying to get Henny to run our Ford GT Twin Turbo but they never bit. Guess they were too scared that our TT kit that's $30K less than their would whip their ass!

A swing and a miss IMO. Only thing I marginally like is the steering wheel.

Steering wheel is nice, but it's not as nice as the WK2 SRT8's steering wheel.

X2 on everything said above!

Why is the exhaust so crooked?
