    I am so glad he is not known to do our cars.

    My understanding is he is starting to do a Performance package for the Hellcats. Like anything people need to do their research ahead of time.

    Run, don't walk away. This guy gives a new meaning to the word shady. There are so many good vendors out there like HHP. Why would anyone go to this creep.

    Hennessey has been known for years as rip off artist and rumors of him being addicted to crack have been going around for years. Most people know to stay away. He has taken motors from customers cars and put them in other cars and never delivers. I have read this on many forums and rip off reports.

    If he is that bad, how has he made a name for himself? Was he reputable and really good at what he did at one point in time?

    He may have been legit once. Google him. He needs a whole filing cabinet to himself.

    As I've said before, never confuse HPE with HHP

    John has had trouble ever since he started business. Makes some interesting and fast vehicles but the collateral damage is out there.

    when the day is done, and you have a car from John and it's trade time, unless it is his own serialized purpose built vehicle, you have a VIN that states it's a everyday Mustang, Camaro or whatever.

    my son had a Roush, took a beating when he wanted to trade for something else. I know, never trade in but some people don't have the patients to wait. So, co ahead and buy that 727hp Mustang. You got a Mustang GT.

    not interested.

    We have a HPE850 HC here that we're going to rebuild from the ground up. They claim 852bhp for this package, it made about 25 more than stock.

    Came with embroidered floor mats and headrests, a badge on the doors, a badge on the spoiler, a badge underhood, ati lower, hurst catback and some wheels for 20k.

    After we received the car, we took it straight to the dyno as is/untouched, it made 663. After the dyno session was over, it sputtered and died on the street while cruising along. We later found a pretzel shaped pushrod under the driver's side valve cover.

    Sorry for your troubles. Are you going to join the long list of litigants against him ?
