    A centri blower? really? Not dogging them in the aftermarket, but on a Hennessey car? Way to take the easy way out. BTW, is Hennessey still Ponzi-ing people? or am I thinking someone else?

    You are thinking of the right people. The story goes that they would sell OEM parts from customer cars to fund new builds, and then use cheaper materials when reassembling the original vehicle.

    maybe its just me but that sounded like a 500 hp pull and it appears to take forever to get into the power band.

    looks like a total dog on the street. little Vtec Honda will be two blocks ahead b4 it makes any usable power smh

    6 speed??

    Lol. It's going to be the biggest fail in Hennessey's history when this thing doesn't run as quick as the demon. And given their history that's saying a lot. Talk about putting your foot in your mouth.

    .....and all that can be yours for a BASE price of $117k.

    Looks like crap and sounds like crap. Wonder how many stolen parts he used to create this.

    Agreed.

    Unfortunately someone will need to buy one from them (which will be pretty difficult given there past) and test it against a demon.

    Anything that comes from HPE and numbers will be bullshit. I can't believe they are even still around.

    Didn't seem violent like a 95xRWHP pull should be. Sounded less impressive and much longer than when my GT500 made 652.

    That was a nice belt tensioner, though.

    Isn't slow boost a hallmark of centrifugal blowers? It'll probably be more usable on the street than you guys think.

    The Centri cars build boost in a more linear fashion but most 4.6 cars making 600-700 with a Centri seem way more violent.

    Hennessy's past is well documented, one thing you have to give him credit for is putting out packages for just about every performance car on the market. If and that is a big IF he is on the up and up now, he's really building some cool stuff. With that said I'm not sure I'd pay the price of his stuff....

    Most people won't realize how God awful loud that bypass valve is. VERY annoying to cruise around with.

    I have heard so many horror stories about Hennessy, I would never consider doing business with them.

    One could build so much more for so much less.

    Same thing can be said for the Demon too or any other "factory" race car. Same shit you or I can get, just marked up.

    Agreed. Car you can buy from the factory with a warranty, vs. Hennessey's nonsense that'll only probably put down 600rhwp and be using parts from other peoples vehicles.
