    Heavy Chevy want to see my title.... You really think was a way to keep from paying $100 month in fees? Are you that ignorant? I write Dupont a check every month for $35k. I am trying to learn what I can about these cars and share the little we have learned.

    Never mind guys, I really don't need the grief. Thanks to the guys who PM'd me etc though. I didn't take it to Hennessey I am the General Manager at Hennessey. I never offered that information. I was asked to post "proof" so I did. I have owned and raced my own cars for years. It is my car, not a customers car. I am here to share and learn about the V but not at the expense of the BS. PM me if you want to see pics when I am done. I will be happy to share them. They have been building the headers all day. Suspension is done just not back installed yet. Modified Blower will go back on tomorrow. HeavyChevy can take over here for me since he is the knower of all. Sorry to intrude... on his space.

    Aw christ , this is gonna be worse than the "drone" thread. Now we have a NOOB droppin off-topic bombs on a uber performance shop's credability.

    Keep up the cool posts Dave. Looking forward to seeing the new 09 V's limitations.
    Lighten up Heavy, let's get to know each other here for a while.

    Ignore all the naysayers. If anyone disagrees with anything on this board, the flames don't stop. I'm sure that everyone here appreciates any information we can get on the V2. Please post pics and the HP gains that you've achieved when you're done with the monster.

    Ok nevermind. Now that I'm home I can see where it's at. Lot's of work places are blocking Youtube now, including mine so we can't view the videos there.

    Do a search, Hennesseys credibility doesn't have anything to do with me.

    Chris, I don't understand--once the drivetrain is wound up against the rollers (all of the "play" taken out of the bushings), doesn't it factor out? Aren't most drivetrain losses due to friction or slippage?

    Re: First Impression & Dyno

    Dave, keep up the posts! There are many, many people who view these threads who do not post and I am sure they all are extremely interested in following your progress. Its too bad we have one bad apple to spoil the bunch!

    I have no idea why anyone would be so negative towards someone who owns a V and is trying to PROGRESS/TEST THE VEHICLE'S LIMITS and is kind enough to share it with us on a daily basis!!

    Thanks Dave!

    Very close to equal length. Exhaust has an Xpipe and we will dyno with a few different muffler configurations to compare power, noise, drone etc.
