Your buddy most likely just got Hennescrewed.
Muffler and Brembo's. $50,000.
So turbo LS then?
That's pretty silly.
Not really. Go look up Hennessey's history of poor management and scams.
I meant the implied claim that the mods are brake calipers and mufflers for $50K.
The friggin' thing has a blower.
Oh, a bolt on blower. Very impressive. How much was that? Triple retail for parts and 100 hours labor for half a days work?
At best, Hennessy is a backyard mechanic and a con artist. Engine building is cake, especially when your customers throw blank checks at you. And he still can't pull it together.
Hopefully your bud gets his money back before they change their address for the forth time.
She prefers to be called soccer-mom.
Yeah it’s hard to fake put a blower on a car

You guys should check out what Hennessey did with one of those Track Hawks LOL.
Would you prefer they welded the blower onto the block?
You and I both know there is no way they are simply bolting on a blower. At an absolute minimum there has to be additional cooling for the blower.
$142,500?! AFTER he purchased the car? Are you SURE this isn't a scam?
I thought Hennessey made whiskey...
You, sir, win the Internet for today.
Brandy/Cognac. Not whiskey.
But Teslas are fugly. Rather have sexy and fast.
Wait...are you talking soccer mom or truck?
Why not the soccer mom IN the truck? It’s got the room!
650hp in a 5700lb brick that handles like a tug boat built by a total scam artist..probably from someone elses used parts..lol, thats cute.
< laughs in hellcat.
I like your car.
It interesting that threads like this degenerate into "look how cool my stuff is and awful the other guy's stuff is" nearly always.
1. I don't know my neighbor well, however, people who buy modded full size SUVs are not taking them to the track except maybe as a one time, lap or two deal. I'm sure this guy bought the thing to have a nice, streetable, luxury cruiser with some real passing power that will also haul four in great comfort and two more in a pinch plus a lot of gear and maybe a trailer.
2. So far as Hennessey being a cheat. I'll go with the group that says he cheated some people back in the day. But all of the complaints I've read are from ~20 years ago. Currently, the rep seems much better. There are lots of Hennessey mods running around Houston, Dallas, Austin and the oil patch. If they had a bad rep. now there's no way they'd be as successful. Along those lines I know an oilman from Abilene, you know the type dresses like a field hand but probably has $30,000,000 in his checking account........he's on his third Hennessey F-150, he loves them.
3. None of that really matters much to me. I don't own the Yukon but I like it.
You are very correct.
Having a powerful SUV is very nice for going over high mountain passes while carrying ski/snowboard gear and having ground clearance (and AWD / 4WD) for when the snow really starts falling.
It is about power while driving for normal daily activities. And the SUVs are easier for old people to get in and out.
