    Re: Hennessey Performance

    I would most certainly be too, what timeframe do they give you for return after a build like that?

    Approximately three weeks is the turn around time currently.

    Did you compare pricing with some of the other reputable shops here in Houston? I'm curious how it would compare.

    Make sure you take off the wheels, the hood, or anything else he can sell on EBAY prior to leaving the car......

    Re: Hennessey Performance

    The HPE V700 installation does not come standard with wheel change nor hood change.
    HPE would never do anything like that.
    Do you have any substantiating proof that anything like that ever happened?

    Much has been locked and removed from forums, probably because of sponsorships.....do some digging lots to read. Much I read about 6-8 years ago when I was driving a C5 and on the corvetteforums has been removed. I don't have any personal experience; however I read enough to know there are a lot of shops around that don't have similar...issues...with a simple google search. The question was asked, I'm just letting you know what I know.

    Re: Hennessey Performance

    From my understanding he did make some mistakes several years ago with the Vipers. I believe in giving a person a second chance, and his record has been outstanding since his then. I too, plan to go with Hennessey next year
    with another purchase I have planned. I like what he's doing right now. I had trouble with another company on my present car. So, they are all going to make mistakes from time to time. I certainly won't go back to the one I dealt
    with. I do like the packages that Hennessey offers. Cecil..............

    G-Force is where I would take mine if I lived in Houston. Great reviews from those guys!

    Re: Hennessey Performance

    I know that HPE had some issues with the Viper crowd quite a while back.
    However, I have met the Hennessey clan & talked to them @ several car shows.
    Been to their shop in Lake Forest. There are several threads on this forum of
    instances where they have backed their 12K mile / 12 month warranty with
    integrity & class. I also am kicking around their V700 package.
    The shop up here quoted me unofficially about 6 weeks.
    I am also considering D3's competition package at about the same amount of $$$.

    Search for lawsuits against him in TX. You'll find many claims and some are still open. Chameleons don't change, only their colors and appearance do.

    Anyone who's been around the scene more than this being their first car or longer than 5 years knows the history. I guarantee you there are shops in Houston that can do the same for less (GForce for one). It's your $ though.

    Re: Hennessey Performance

    "once a rapist always a rapist" may not apply but if someone muffed up that bad, and if you read back had the balls to admit it, then I think the crowd is split 50/50. I personally, because of that reputation, would not take my V there. Besides the fact they are far away plays a significant role, who's to say that something like that 100% couldn't happen to my car? My initial post in this thread was without this knowledge. Thank you for advising me. If I were the OP and already planning it I would go through with it. He probably does many cars "on the list, those who didn't know like me" and it would be a slight chance only that yours would be, as I called it before, "muffed".
