Negative Tuner Experiences: Henessey Strikes Again

For all of you who are fans of Hennessey and Vipers or Vettes, you need to read this thread Hennessey Strikes Again

This is another lesson to those of you who spend much of your time reading car magazines that are full of propaganda written about tuners like Hennessey. I hope that none of you ever have to go through an experiences like these.

Let the buyer beware...

Brad

Yeah, that's really scary! And all that great hype about Hennessey could easily sucker most people. That's an awful experience to be victimized by that crook Hennessey!

I posted this in OT as well. Not that people in OT care, but it shows that just because a magazine says something is good, oent mean it is.

Brad, thank you for passing the word on to this forum, the entire automotive community need to act as one when it comes to this "stuff". I read all that, and eventhough I'll probably never have the ability to spend that much on my vehicles, I feel that being educated on new subjects empowers people,

once again, I thank you

Hi Guys:

I am glad that I could help prevent this from happening to some of you or your friends. Keep getting the word on Hennessey out there. They are up to over 240 posts on this Corvette Forum thread, and over 43,000 hits.

Start writing to the car magazines about this crook. Let the buyer beware...

Brad

More on Hennessey...

You haven't seen these yet...

Here's where Hennessey had one of his own customers arrested...

Take a look at his D&B rating on here. It's got a list of lawsuits and suppliers that won't ship him anything.

Re: Negative Tuner Experiences: Henessey Strikes Again

Oh, jeezus, I think this sets a new record for the Oldest Resurrected Thread.

This thread is 6 years old. Please do not resurrect old threads. They have run their course and to do so is annoying to other members.

I would encourage you to start a new thread on this subject if you wish to continue the discussion.

Thread closed.
