Hey guys so I am looking into buying this 05 Saleen but there is a nasty noise coming from right on top of the engine, I am thinking that the supercharger is hooped? It only has 18,000 km's ..I will upload this video or a link to it that I took today and hope you can hear it ok. The intercooler resevoir looks clean? When I rev it up there is also no boost registering on the guage?... Let me know what you think, thanks guys!!
i have to wait for the video to uplaod I will post it as soon as its done...

The Saleen s/c sounds nasty anyway especially at idle when cold. Depending on the pulley and vacuum line routing you wont see boost till WOT.I just noticed you have an 05 so you know what they normally sound like.
I had to pass on it... the price of the car was good but I can't afford to fix the blower or buy a new one. More than one ford certified tech called the blower as needing replacement, Its only a matter of time before that blower goes and sucks everything thru the engine and then I'd be in big trouble. It sucks cause its a sexy *** car but I just cant spend $26,000 on a car that needs a $6000+ blower install.
if you guys could post a video of yours running at idle I might change my m ind if they all sound the same but even still with more than 1 ford tech stating the blower is screwed.... lets see some vids guys.
I saw Jasons comment on the SOEC site, don't know what he hears. It got me worried about mine because mine sounds like your video from what I can tell. So I took it to the dealer that originally sold these cars and had the service forman,who knows these cars listen to it. He said thats how they sound ,they sound growly.They had another one in for service and he started it for me, sounded the same. Are there any others for sale on the island? I would go look at another one just to listen to it.
