I honestly believe that guy would slap a turbo on his desk chair if it would make it recline faster. Although they do build rocketships so why not? I'm sure Lingenfelter & Callaway won't be far behind in the hp wars.

I am all for early adoption, however I think they are jumping the gun just a bit here.

This is a whole new engine and the ECU has yet to be cracked. While I have no doubt that the aftermarket will form quickly, I would just hate to be the test mule for Hennessy to test on my car..

1000 HP Stingray!

My question is, how does he know he can get this power level into an LS1 engine when it hasn't even been released yet? Maybe he plans to install an LSX engine?

1000hp aside, what do you guys think is going to be the first power related mods that C7 owners want to do?

I already have one demonically modified car, so I'm going to keep my warranty on this one. With that said I will be jumping on the first proven...

-Cold Air Intake
-High Flow Cats
-Aggressive Catback

Once the warranty is gone the blower goes on~

LMAO - I waited until 5,000 miles on my current GTI then chipped it, intake, exhaust. Couldn't bear waiting 3 years until messing with it. Having said that, I hope I'll be happy with 450+/450 for a while. Probably not but will give it a shot anyway.............

I waited 1800 miles on this car (http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=273686) before going nuts on it. Just wanted to make sure the engine was sound .

For the folks who want to put their brand new and shiny 7th Generation Corvette in the ditch even faster than if it was "just" stock.

I've never had a high powered RWD car before (my GTI and an Accord V6) so the first mod is going to be ME high performance driving school here I come. I do NOT want to be the next guy on Youtube stuffing a Z06 into the barrier after a burnout...........

Seriously, I've never even driven a 450hp Corvette yet, much less a 1000hp one

Would be a serious treat though, to even be a passenger in one

Why anyone would take their car to Hennessey for anything is beyond me.

Well I think this is a little premature, seeing he has not even had a chance to test the LT1 and besides how does he know if the ECU can be cracked. I heard that GM has done there homework on the ECU and the aftermarket tuners may be in for a little more then they planned on.

Callaway as we all know is an authorized GM partner and they have been working with the GM engineers to see what they can do to the ECU for their applications. If they have to work with the GM group, it may be difficult for the outsiders to to a lot. Even Lingenfelter is only thinking in the 700 range.

Recently from Autoweek:

Hennessey Performance plans to offer upgrades for both the C7 coupe and the C7 convertible. Supercharged systems will bring output to 700 hp and higher-priced twin-turbo setups push power to anywhere from 800 hp-1,000 hp.

Other bolt-on and performance parts, which will probably be offered as standalone parts as well, include cold-air induction, cat-back exhaust, stainless steel long-tube headers, wheel and tire upgrades, braking improvements and suspension systems.

We don't doubt that Hennessey can achieve these crazy numbers for a minute. This is the same guy who squeezed 800 hp from the Grand Cherokee SRT8 and 700 hp from a Dodge Challenger. And of course, there's always the Hennessey Venom GT, a Lotus-bodied, Corvette-V8-powered supercar.

Hennessey says he expects the first vehicle to be completed within six to nine months of receiving the first C7. The price for the HPE1000 Twin Turbo upgrade is $69,500. Go to hennesseyperformance​.com for more info and to check out some of the company's other tuned supercars.
