The white Hennessey GT-R that was in you-tube videos and then was sold on E-bay to a young man in Washington State ended up at Cobb/Surgeline Tuning in Portland today for some much needed mods. Has running problems and I'll post a few pics and see what you guys think.

Dang, so the rumors are true! They do half-assed ish :lmfao: :doh:

I can't believe they didn't even use a MAF flange and tapped straight into the intake pipe :irock: ....talk about CHEAP!!

I feel for the owner....luckily he's in VERY good hands now with Dustin wrenching!! :cheers:

Gotboost, should've told Tim to do a before and after dyno

I think Larry Ellison just bought one of Hennessey's "kits", but I think the car that is @ Cobb/Surgeline was Hennessey's personal car.

Lucky the owner was smart enough to realise he needed to take it somewhere genuine before it just died.

As for Hennessey, I guess all the talk he did on the forums about how the past is the past and it's all behind him now is revealed right here for what it's worth.

Said it from day one and got a ban on 6speed for asking him to see pictures of the turbos when they claimed this car had them and a dyno sheet showing whatever power they claimed. Hennessey BLOWS

I shudder to think what other things may have been done under the hood. I hope he got a good deal on the car

Wow, I hope we get more pictures of the teardown and this guy gets exposed.

This guy couldn't even resell the HKS 570 kit properly!
