    It would be a great addition for a Collector (right-hand drive and all), after details of the lien were known.
    The trans was built, convertor, intercooler, etc.

    BUT: TT and STOCK internals?!! I'd be concerned about actually using it as a daily driver unless it was shipped to JMB Justin or Hennessey for a proper rebuild/reinforcement and turbo tweaking. Or leave it as is for posterity in a collection.

    118 miles per hour (sea-level) for the weight is a bit over 800 HP but, did I mention STOCK internals?!?!

    Regardless, a nice vehicle for someone to own!!

    I wonder how well those Hennessy's hold together.
    Mine has blown a head gasket and today it spat the exhaust manifold gasket out.
    That's only luke warm compared to 800hp
    Makes you think

    Not boasting, nor bumping the thread but I'm very close (within just a few of 800 flywheel) and I have complete confidence in my build. I mention that only for common reference AND... you "asked".

    The blocks are reliable to approx. 1000 horsepower before they are past their original design limits and start squirming around. Using the Program main caps help in overall rigidity and that is important. Even high powered builds like Dom's/JB Justin's can survive for a time.

    As long as you pay attention to all the important stuff (after all, you ARE re-engineering the engine), you can expect a reliable, solid platform.

    Thank you sir.

    Today's tech provides some incredible options.

    Stock gasoline powered motorcycles that produce 150 horsepower per liter and are emission compliant, have smooth operation, get decent gas mileage, are reliable and make that much horsepower without power adders.

    At that rate my 8.3L engine should be making 1245 horsepower.

    Apparently I have even more work to do. ;)
