I am looking at an 07Roush Stage III supercharged 427R with 35k on it that looks to be in really good condition. Since I'm new to mustangs what is a good price? The dealership is asking 32k. Would it be possible to talk them down any? Thanks in advance!

The 427R is cool car. You get a very nice supercharger, performance suspension, and great looks. $32k isn't out of the question, but it's still a bit high for my taste. I would offer $30k, and find out if they bite. I don't know what the car market is like in CO, but in CA they are wanting to deal. However, the banks that don't want to give loans.
Went to the dealer and took it for a drive. It's a good bit slower than my sti but it'll do for now. Talked them down to 29.5 too!
If you plan on getting more power, you might want another car then, the supercharger on the 427r isnt very upgradable and is a very small supercharger. Maybe look into a gt500 if you want more power or a stock gt and put a better supercharger. However its still a great car and i would love to have one lol

Is the supercharger on the 03/04 cobra the same size or bigger? My buddy had an 03 that was wicked fast and didn't really have much in the way of mods. The only difference was we were at sea level. If the 427r would be as fast as that with a few mods then I would be satisfied. I just have to deal with being at 6000' elevation for now.
The roush blower is perfectly capable of giving you all the power the stock block can handle. You can get 450whp out of it with a pulley swap and a good tune, maybe the CAI roush makes. You will be fine. the intercooler kit on the 427r m90 is the same kit used for the Roush TVS blower so it will cool just fine. YOu will nee dsome sort of fuel systme upgrade for higher power though, BAP or GT500 system. teh roush cars only upgrade teh injectors, uses stock fuel pump.

03/04Cobra uses the M112, Roush uses an M90 on these. There are lots of upgrades to squeeze more power out of them, though. Roush offers the TVS blower upgrade as well (similar to what was standard on the 510 hp P-51A/B models in '08 and '09). That upgrade will put you far beyond what your STi was doing if you have the bottom end that can take the beating.
Ok here's some more questions. I have looked at Saleens a little too and the chick at the dealership said some stuff to try to steer me away from them. Said Saleen is going out of business, that 427Rs are more of an all around upgrade, and that all Saleen's cars are defective from Ford and they buy them and fix them to get a break on the purchase price. Is one really that much better than the other or are the about on par? I'm looking for what will be the best/funnest at an auto cross.
It's interesting that you're coming out of a STi. I drive the Mustang and my wife drives the WRX. Both are great cars. My Mustang is definitely faster, but that AWD system provides tons of traction during hard cornering.
My fiance is in love with mustangs and I am looking to lower my monthly payment but keep a fast car. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my STi. It really moves. I just don't want to pay as much as I do per month to drive it. The 427R will be cheaper on my insurance too.
