    I think he might have been running without it though...

    The Supra apparently had a single T-72 turbo, and the usual big turbo upgrades, the Lambo and Z06 were both stock, and the Viper had cams, headwork and exhaust.

    must be nice to afford a sweet ass supra

    and then your friends owning a viper/z06/lambo, hell they all must be teammates or something from a pro sports team.

    i would love to see them compare these cars to each other again. I mean a modified supra ok, it fast as hell, but not really comparing it fairly against the others. Why don;t they compare it to a modified hennesy viper 600, a modified lambo, a lingerfelter z51r corvette......... I can tell ya what the out come would be then, bye bye supra...

    Well, they sent their Viper to Hennesy to get modified, but 6 months and $150K later all they got back was a non-running car missing a bunch of parts that Hennesy sold on eBay....


    ... and this is the never-ending pissing contest.. sure.. you can modify a Viper and make it faster, but the modded- Supra is already cheaper then the stock Viper and yadda yadda yadda the pissing match goes around in circles for ever.

    That being said, there are street-driven Supra's getting 900hp at the back wheels, so don't think a modded Viper or Vette would trounce it so easily...

    Exactely, on all counts. Actually, that reminds me of a funny post by this guy on my CBR list a few years back.
    Out cruising on his 'Blade, and comes up next to a Ferrari at a red light. He looks over at the Ferrari, guy looks back at him, both grin, light changes and they go. Bike, of course, kills Ferrari.
    Next light, same thing, and they go again. Same thing happens.
    Third light, guy in Ferrari pulls up next time him, looks over and says, "Nice!.... but this gets me WAY more pussy...." then he turns right at the intersection. :)

    Interesting, seeing how my buddy just ordered and recieved all his stuff for his 2004 viper the other day.

    So can't see how this company has that bad of a rep, but must of been something go wrong.

    Should be fun, watchout for a black 2004 viper, has the hennesy 600 package, 605hp...............

    Yeah i would say, theres a test of the car (indentical car) in car and driver a month or two ago. Something along the lines of 11.7 1/4. Scary thing is this kit drops 7 secs off the 0 150 mph time, a time which SOME of honda/vw/mazda guys haven't even reached the 1/4mile yet or just have.

    Here look

    Acceleration (tested by CAR AND DRIVER on stock tires):

    0 - 60: 3.4 sec.
    0 - 100: 7.5 sec.
    0 - 150: 16.1 sec. (vs. stock 22.5 sec.)
    1/4 mile: 11.4 sec. @ 127 mph
    Top Speed: 201 mph (estimated)

    Well, there were numerous websites dedicated to it... helll... Car and Driver even did an editorial about it last year.

    But, I think after all the bad press they got it woke them up and they cleaned up their act.
    Also, your buddy ordered the parts right? Everybody who got "hennescrewed" (type the word into google.. comes up with a ton of viper-board hits) sent their car too Hennesy to get the work done. People were dumping money into their cars with no apparent work getting done.. one guy showed up to take his car back and not only was it not running, but Hennesy had stripped a bunch of parts of his car and eBayed them off...

    Either way, your friends bad-ass car should be even better now....

    *edit: Nevermind, I followed some of the links I got from the Google... bunch of people got screwed on parts too... this guy (for example_ ordered and paid for $34K worth of parts and 9 months later had no parts and nobody returning his calls. Everybody responding basically said, "Serves you right for not doing your homework and actually ordering from Hennessey"

    Yeah well my buddy didn't get screwed, this is the second time he has dealt with John hennesy. His first viper (blk 02) was mod'd with hennesy stuff.

    Anyhow the parts are in, saw them myself.

    This car will be one of the fastest car in halifax, one of, not the fastest.. don't need to start going on about what is faster etc.

    Anyone in Halifax that needs to upgrade their Viper with the help of Hennesy is seriously trying to compensate for something. :rofl:
    Should be one pimptastic ride once completed!
