Saleen or Procharged GT?

so, as you guys know, I'm now looking for a replacement car for my totalled Mustang... and I have this scenario starting to shape up. I can get a 2000 Saleen, with 33,000 miles on it, not supercharged... or an undetermined Mustang GT with a procharger (so, like 450 horsepower)... But that's how it's looking... I could've had a 2003 Mustang GT today ... but I was busy when my buddy called to tell me about it, and it sold.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

Hrm.. if you think about the future, you could always sell the Saleen for more money thanks to the label and parts.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

I won't be selling this car... I also won't be doing much stupid crap in it... I think the crap load of horsepower in the Procharged GT would keep me from messing around too much.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

n/a saleen is just suspension and a bodykit.

you can afford those a lot quicker than a supercharger.

so get the procharged GT

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

I'll be different here and say go for the Saleen. It's got the handling, looks, re-sale value, and the name. You'll be amazed in how many people will stop and gawk at a Saleen compared to a regular GT, even if it's blown.

But the main reason is this... you can always put a blower on the Saleen. You can never really make the GT into a Saleen.

Really, a blower isn't terribly expensive when you stop and think about how much you can spend on other smaller mods on a car. You'd be amazed how quick you can save up that kind of money when you really try. It may take more time this way, but in the end, you'll be happier with your blown Saleen than you would have been with a blown GT.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

buy an 03 cobra, if you can afford 23k you can get a good one. Dont buy a base saleen aka a near stock gt with a body kit.

If you need something a bit cheaper you could pick up a mach 1

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

saleen's suspension is meh... there are better to be had. I personally wouldnt pay a good bit extra for a body kit and a couple bolt ons, but thats all your choice.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

you also run the risks of taking somone else's problems with a blown GT. They dont have forged internals and much over 400rwhp you really start to push the limit, 450 is about the limit stock~ 500 definatly is pushing the boarder, and its probably only a matter of time...

Very true. Get the Saleen and then do the work yourself. I don't think I'd ever buy a vehicle that was modded beyond the basic bolt-ons. I don't trust anyone else's work, unless it was one of those things where you could just tell it had been done right.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

def saleen, there are a million and one mustangs on the road, you need one to set you apart, and a saleen is just that, if you decide you want more power, then get a saleen supercharger later.. but i really dont think anything can compare to the beautifulness of a saleen

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

yeah, the GT doesn't have the procharger yet... I can get the procharger and the GT for the same price as the Saleen... I think I may get the GT, and then add the Saleen crap to it, we'll see though.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

Just curious here, but can someone give me an estimate of how much it would cost to make a GT look exactly like a Saleen? This should include wheels/tires/full body kit/paint and any other interior pieces or anything like that which I may not know about. I'm far from an expert on the Saleens (way out of my price range).

The reason I ask is that you may find that the cost would be nearly as much as the cost of a blower. So, if you're planning on making the GT eventually look like a Saleen, you may be better of just getting the Saleen to begin with.

Plus then you'll have an actual Saleen which will help with resale value and overall coolness.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

I have a friend who fully converted a 2000 GT to a 281, complete with the blower, I'm trying to get him on this site..eventhough I'm not sure he even knows how much he's spent on his car.

Re: Saleen or Procharged GT?

making your own saleen clone would be expensive as ****, cuz they charge out the *** for their parts. especially their "authentic" body kit pieces. if you go that route, plan on spending at least the price of your car all over again
