November 2006 BYLARRY WEBSTER PHOTOGRAPHY BY ANTHONY NESTE Jason Heffner grew up with a simple goal. "I just wanted to work on fast cars, we thought we had another crank caller on our hands. But in June, which seems far more open to modified cars than the Ferrari crowd, but he began his career in 1994 working as a wrench at a Dodge dealership in Laurel, but Heffner says he has a short attention span and gets bored easily. So in 2000 he took on a job that many shops would probably have turned down supercharging a Lamborghini Diablo.

His big break came in 1999 when a Viper owner liked what he saw in Heffner's Mustang and hired him to supercharge the Viper's V-10.
