Just doing a quick intro. New to the site. Own a 2016 GT350. Has about 3000 miles on it. Here are some pics. Looking forward to being part of the membership community here.

Basic story...Wife and I are originally from Alaska. Left for 9 years while I was an EOD operator in military. Went back to AK in 2008 - 2016, moved to Alabama in 2016 for work. Always wanted a Shelby. Finally purchased one. If we ever end up heading home to AK, it'll obviously be a seasonal car.

Looking to do a couple more cosmetic upgrades now. Deciding between the SpeedKore "R" style spoiler or the Cervini C-Series Spoiler. SpeedKore much more expensive. Considering carbon fiber interior upgrades. And last night was looking at some carbon wheel options from Lite Speed Racing. Just got in the Steeda Clutch Spring that I need to install. Fun car so far.

Anyway, nice to "virtually" meet everyone.

Josh

Welcome to the site, watch out for Texas Voodu, he'll have you posting more pics in no time :) Seriously, great site with helpful folks. I like your color combo looks sharp! I recently brought home a 2017 Lightning Blue and am really having fun with it. I noticed the Hennessey badging...do tell??

Sure man...The Mods were done by Hennessey. I picked it up from John H a few months ago now I guess and worked directly with him. Drove it from Tx to AL. It Dyno'd at 858 HP at the crank and 700+ torque. About 8 psi and slightly lowered compression, headers, and other mods. But to be honest, not the greatest experience. Don't want to publicly dog anyone, however. But so far, things have been a challenge and if I had it to do over, I'm not sure I'd go the same route. Been working now with DBR High Performance in TN, and they've been responsive and helpful. They worked with Lund to put a custom tune on it. Picked it up and immediately noticed it still wasn't right. So we are shipping it up to Lund to get it really dialed in. I'm confident it'll be right on this next round. The question is whether I should sell it once it is right. Even with the hiccups, you can feel the almost 900 HP. The car does rip and gets with it. It'll be nice to get it dialed in. I just hear about all these GT350 motors blowing (stock ones at that) and makes me uneasy. With no warranty from factory, knew that going in, and not a lot of confidence that the Hennessey group would back up their warranty, just a little uneasy...still new to me and that's probably part of it. 8 pounds of boost is easily doable on the stock motors w/out compression lowered. But mine is lowered a bit anyway. Anyway, not to get long winded. It's kinda been a big topic at the house :)
