2005 Mustang Saleen S281SC. This is 1 of just 31 Mineral Grey Saleens every built on
the S197 platform and 2005 was the last year that color was produced. It was originally supercharged with 400hp to
the crank and backed with a manual transmission. I have owned the car for 10 years and at one time used it as my
daily but here more recently have only driven maybe 300 miles in the past 3 years. It's time to let someone else
own it that will be able to enjoy it! It has been heavily modified, well know, been on vendor websites and can be
seen on youtube. It stickered at 59K new and came optioned with HID Headlights, Front Big Brake Upgrade with cross
drilled rotors, supercharger, Saleen exterior package, interior package, extractor hood and wing. I have around 25K
- 30K invested in modificaitons on top of the vehicle cost. I did not buy 2nd hand parts, all were purchased
direct from the vendors with no expense spared.

Different Springs for different boost
Countless hours on the dyno between Dallas Mustang and HPP Racing
NT05 tires all on all 4 corners.
The car has made over 700 rear wheel horsepower on pump gas, 18lbs of boost with Bosch 80lb injectors, and 76mm
precision turbo. The car had little low end power and significant turbo lag.
In the last 200 miles I have had some additional work done.
Morgan and Sons installed custom forged pistons and rings with slightly higher compression to bring it up from
8.2:1 to 9.0:1 to be more in line with the 2013 GT500 compression ratio. They also did a valve job
When I got it back I used new Cometic gaskets and ARP studs again for another $750
I also replaced the Precision Journal Bearing turbo with a Precision 67mm Ball Bearing and the difference in how
fast the boost spools is significantly better.
