99-04 saleen.

What made the 281 99-04 Saleen different from a regular gt? Could I make my own Saleen as the real thing from a gt?

What's the motor package ? Just a blower? Or are there more parts?

I Don't believe they have a blower. I think the main differences are the body kit and badass rims, suspension and seats I believe

Re: 99-04 saleen.

most S281's are simply GT's with appearance stuff, perhaps a few handling options and rims~ maybe brakes..... and a few have superchargers, but overall they are GT Mustangs.

You cant make your GT an official Saleen but you can make it look the same, just keep the Saleen badges/stickers off and your good

Re: 99-04 saleen.

saleens really dont hold value well in the eye's of loan value due to their VIN says GT most always FYI

the newer models may have fixed this but I am doubting it

Look up the VIN. They are Saleens.

Saleens are GTs..Saleen purchases the mustangs from ford, and then modifies them. They hold a NADA value...but 'autotrader' doesn't recognize the 'saleen' part...so to them...they are GTs cause you can't search 'saleen'...this is why I searched keyword 'saleen'...

Bet you didn't know the 99 S351s were base model V6s before Saleen got them, did ya?

Do some research. The post...

Back in 2003-2004 I was looking for a "Saleen". and the banks recognized Saleen as 'ford' authorized and gave a 'adjusted' value..but not Roush, (my buddy had a 2000 Stage II roush, and went through hell to get financing cause the banks saw it as a 'GT"). When I asked why, is cause Saleen and ford were considered a partner type if thats how you want to put it...and roush was/is and aftermarket tuner. It seems now, Saleen is that way too. YOu can't find a NADA or aftermarket Saleen value any longer.
