Saleen Superchargers

I am looking to purchase a Saleen supercharger for my 2006 Mustang GT.
I want my car to remain a fun daily driver and not turn into a moneypit. I've talked to one shop in Houston Texas, and they quoted me $6500 for the SC, installation, Dynotune, a new fuel pump, new Ford GT fuel injectors. Is this a fair deal? I would also like to hear from anyone who done any modifications such as Cold Air intakes, exhaust, or gears.

Re: Saleen Superchargers

ah i dunno how great of a deal that is honestly considering the gains from the saleen s/c are quite minimial. If your gonna honestly drop that much cash why not invest into a Procharger or something where the gains would be worth and justicfiy spending that much.

The only real reason people go with the Saleen s/c is cause of cost and not wanting huge gains cause more then likely its a DD

Re: Saleen Superchargers

Don't listen to the man behind the curtain. I will check with the shop here in town who is putting down 505 rwhp in his 05 GT with a saleen SC and a couple other mods. I will see what it would run for that type of setup and get back with.

Re: Saleen Superchargers


The kit suppusly comes with a Saleen ready tune. heard it was quite lean though from the local guys so they dont bother it what also im thinking is what size inj. are the Ford GTs? cause this is from the most recent local guy who did this job got

Quote:
A big thanks to Chris for all his efforts to draw out the max horsepower and torque from my 05 GT that I just installed the Saleen Blower in.Chris worked for two hours to tweek the tune for it's best proformance.
Keeping in mind that I am running the stock 4.00 pulley and 80mm MAF meter and stock 24lb injectors.Chris was able to get out of this configuration,

Horsepower: 333

Torque: 331

And this is being very conservative with the tune.The 80MM MAF pegged the meter and the injectors need to be upgraded to 39lb and a 3.6 pully will make one helleva difference.We deceided to play it safe and reload in the spring once I've installed all the new hardware.
No Baelins as the a/f ratio was way to high like 14.x so Chris took his time a adjusted the fuel a bit at a time and reloaded the tune after each change.Chris was really patient and explained to me what he was doing and why the changes need to happen.

Re: Saleen Superchargers

Thank you for the information. Ive heard some good things and bad things about prochargers. One thing that Ive heard is that 8PSI can blow the motor. I don't know much about superchargers, thats why I'm here, trying to find the right one. How much boost can you run safely with a stock 4.6?

Hey, PM me your number if you would like to talk to the guy over here that did it to his shop car. He can talk things over with you and answer any kind of questions you might have. He is wrapping up work on a Ford GT today and said he would give you a call later this afternoon if you want.

One of my friends is running 8psi on a 03 gt one is running 14psi on a 96gt and one is running a twin turbo kit from hp at 10psi my opinion its more in the tune than anything.
As for the saleen supercharger my mechanic just finished a 06 gt with that kit and the tune it came with was very lean for his standards.

Yeah, here he didn't even bother with the tune from saleen...just passed it over and did a custom.

The 05 GT here is running 13 psi...

An 02 GT of a customer with a vortech is, errr...was, running 14psi on a hot day...until he went to midnight madness this weekend and blew the bottom end to kingdom come...after being told not to run because he would probably see 16psi in the 40* temps....and was on a stock bottom end. Boomage...

No, he is blaming the tune...even though it was a stock bottom end running waaaaaaaaay above its psi abilities. I was there when it was tuned...it was dead on...in fact, it was a little on the rich side for safety and the cooler weather coming up.

Re: Saleen Superchargers

The Saleen setup can make good power when done correctly.
