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.

Intake boot trippled up:


Stainless steel intake....note MAF cutout



Sheet metal screws holding MAF in intake tube


Bent up MAF tabs, Fubarr'd sealing gasket

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


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

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


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.

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

It's called adapt, overcome and innovate! Just don't want them do any of that to my 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!
