Default Hennessey Introduces 600hp Godzilla Package for Nissan GT-R





Quote:
Hennessey Performance Engineering has just made us even bigger fans of the Nissan GT-R. The Texas-based tuner released a 600 hp (441 kW) upgrade to the car just in time for the holidays.


Called the Godzilla 600, the tuning package also provides up to 570 ft-lb (773 Nm) of torque.


This is not the first GT-R specific upgrade from the company. They have a tweek to the on-board computer software that adds 65 hp (48 kW) and 75 lb-ft (102 Nm) of torque after only 10 minutes.


The Godzilla 600 is not as simple. This package includes an upgrade to the air induction system, electronic boost control, an improved wastegate actuator, and front-mount intercooler system. Also included are turbo down pipes, mid-pipe exhaust, and rear section exhaust all in stainless steel.
Hennessey will install the package for $14,500, or ship the items to you for $11,500.


We wonder how soon you will notice the difference as you try to outrun Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol as you race down I-10 away from HPE headquarters.

$15k for going stage2 plus what dealerships are asking on top of the supposedly modest MSRP... good bang for the buck my arse.

I'm surprised it's not claiming 900hp. It's Hennessey, it's going to void your warranty and blow up your motor anyway, so why not make up some huge number.

3000 to install that???? Wow. We charge like 1500 in labor for a motor block swaps in Subarus. We're doing something wrong....

Hennessy. Just the name is a joke in and of itself. I would never let those fools within a mile of my car.

The great part about Hennessey cars, buying them used. With the exception of the TT Vipers, they don't hold their value at all. An extra 200rwhp for $5k isn't a bad deal.
Plus the Hennessey cars get the super cool engraved valve covers.

Thiefs or not, at least it is a better deal than NISMO's titanium exhaust.

If they're actually adding:

Quote:
air induction system, electronic boost control, an improved wastegate actuator, and front-mount intercooler system. Also included are turbo down pipes, mid-pipe exhaust, and rear section exhaust all in stainless steel.
There's a pretty damn good chance the Hennessey package is MUCH more power than the Cobb AP, regardless of what Cobb says... and probably more reliable when actually supporting that power properly.

I didn't know hennessey was hated so much, I see their cars being tested on reputed magazines occasionally. Saw this thread and then I did a quick google search, now I hope the owner crashes into train.
