Lets also be realistic. Saleen and Roush make more exterior changes to the car than Shelby. We have more pieces. The 2010 Shelby does look nice and its always fun to say you have 600+ hp under the hood. Import guys might not like us but hen you start throwing out those big numbers "supercharged" they tend to listen.

I don't know about you, but I saw some new pics of the 010 Shelby today, and I AM NOT diggin that funky dyed plastic piece around the bottom of the rear fascia.

I loved the BlackJack though, which is pretty much the same setup as the 428R, and I was really close to getting one. I finally went for the S302E, but it was a close thing...

How does the S302 drive? I wonder how hard that thing pulls

I'll let you know as soon as I pass the 1000 mile breakin - yes, I am actually keeping it below 4000RPM right now. Its kind of heightening the anticipation!

I'm surprised nobody has stated the obvious, just get a Steeda Q car and be done with it.

Not a lot of love for STEEDA .... still.
I've had the pleasure of visiting their facilities and have them work on my ROUSH. They were top notch and their products were great. I guess their turn key products just haven't caught on like I think they should. Competitively prices, great alternative!!! I'm with you PolkThug!
