that is definitely low. I have the saleen SC, kb bap, 39# injectors, 3.4 pulley and I saw 420rwhp on a jdm tune. I would think you should see around 440rwhp with the SS? I am surprised brenspeed would tell you your car is a "low producer" from the factory...

Is there a way to see what the brenspeed tune has it set at thru the tuner?

I certainly don't feel this matters as far as results, but the SC was not installed by Brenspeed, was a self install that my son and I did.... OK, mostly my son Brenspeed tunes of course, and was changed/updated when switched pulleys.
You could see timing on your aeroforce gauge during wot. It's probably around 17 - 19 degrees.

My tuner/dyno guy always shows me the info after every run, even tells me about stuff I don't understand like the importance of fuel trims. If Brenspeed datalogged your run they could tell you.

I love the sound of that supercharger. It truly has the best of both worlds. I love the shaker look, and I love the power superchargers add. This is a non-intercooled kit right? I would assume 400whp & equivilant tq is right on the money for low boost (6psi?)

But 8 grand including install... tall order...

My GT cost me 25000, so that would be a 420whp car for 33000. Not too shabby I reckon.
I pulled that 8 grand figure out my *** by the way, since the ss costs $6254.99 on it's own @ brenspeed. Install varies, but since it requires cutting of the hood etc I bet it could be between 7 and 8 grand easy. Maybe the topic owner can shed some light.

Yea, paid $6200ish for SS, and had a few other incidentals cost, but self installed...Brenspeed was asking about $1000 for install.

I bought my car for $20,500 with 4000 miles in Dec 2007.... sticker was 33k. Sooo, what, at least 1/2 the cost of GT500 vert?

if you dont race, i wouldn't worry about the numbers too much, i mean you dont drive around with the dyno chart posted on your window, so nobody really knows if you got 400 or 425 hp.
if you want to squeeze more power out of what you got, maybe a dyno tune is in order.

Very good point, but I was really stoked on being over 400, especially since it seems everyone else with similar is. I have hit the strip a couple times, but just for fun test and tune days, no actually competition....
