    GT350 doesn't need a hennessy pkg. It already is more than what is needed for street. What are you doing that you need more?

    If you're just playing then why pay hennessy? For the street, start with a R, do long tubes, E85, Gear, and call it a day.

    On the GT500, see if you can drive one that has suspension mods and is more dialed in. From factory they weren’t comparable to IRS. Frankly, they’re not confidence inspiring

    I put a watts link in mine (cortex) and everyone who has driven it that has come from an S550 has been amazed. It still wants to kill you but it will do it with so much more precision

    I think the comparison of a stock GT500 to a GT350 may be unfair otherwise

    I've had 2 13/14 gt500's and currently have an 18R. Even in factory form I enjoy the R more than my previous modified gt500's.

    A Gt350 is in a totally different category in driving from a GT500. I had a 11 with a lot of 13 parts, and I can tell you that it was in no way able to outdrive my 350. The only thing it had over my 350 was raw acceleration, straight line speed. Now maybe a GT500 with watt's links and other mods may do the trick, but you can as others pointed out drop F/I on the GT350 and be in the same position.

    I know of several F/I Gt350's and man.....yeah they are fast and can still turn a corner. Honestly if your looking for that blower feel, and want the newer platform, then a GT350 with any of the F/I options will do just fine. I would lean more towards a Procharger or Turbo option...but that's just me.

    So, the bottom line is just buy my '13 GT500....

    Whichever you choose just stay away from Hennessey.

    You'd think the Hennessey package would at least include a boost gauge...LOL
