Thanks, one of the few good things about living in Los Angeles is
there are a TON of car dealers, so if one won't cover it, the other probably will.

Seems like the Saleen is the one to get, since Twin Screw's seem to be a bit more
preferred than Roots, and are quieter.

Now, once I pull the trigger on either a 2006 or wait for the 2007 MGT, I'll have to find
a dealer that will install and warranty the Saleen. I'd let them "tune" it too. But I'd take it
to a dyno to check the A/F ratios. If they are not acceptable, I'd take it back to the dealer
for retuning and ask if I can be there with the tech so I can make sure the tune is making
good power while keeping A/F ratio at or below 12:1

Thanks

To be honest with you I dont really think it is up to the dealership if they will warrenty the saleen s/c on your engine.
I'm telling because I know first hand --have family that works for ford--

NO DEALER WILL WARRENTY THE ENGINE AFTER A SALEEN S/C is installed--no matter who istalls it. Th best you get is saleen will warrenty the s/c. trust me i have a saleen, and they won't warrenty mine,...

One word for ya: Saleen.

If you have an existing CAI, that will bolt right up to the Saleen unit too.

Call Manny at HPP in Lewisville, TX and he'll fix you up!

I love mine. Drives like an ordinary car until you punch it and then hang on!!!!

I can just hear a bit of the twin screw whine when it revs up too. Nice sound.

Hope this helps.

Mike

I browsed the JDM website, and there they state:

NOTE: When using the stock hood with this kit you will require our 2005 - 2006 Mustang GT Motor Lowering Mounts.

Have you or anyone else here with the Saleen had to get these engine lowering mounts? Or a different hood?

If you want to use the C&L intake tube you have to lower the motor a half inch. If you use the Racer C&L it will fit, just will rub a little. No big deal since it is plastic. If you use the stock intake tube you don't need the motor mounts.

I have my stock hood and K&N FIPK with the Saleen. Everything fit just fine.

Thx,

Mike

Man, that's a MAJOR bummer.
Sounds like Saleen was the way to go.
The Twin Screw also sounds like the s/c of choice
as well.

BUT, if it voids the Ford warranty on the engine and drivetrain,
then I'd rather just go with the Roush and retain my warranty.

Oh well.

Whipple someday..

As of this morning, I went to their website and they have them listed now for
the 05/06 MGT.
They have an article about them in Mustangs & Fast Fords too.

Prices range from $4499 for the "base" non intercooled kit (6 psi) to
like $6600 for the HO polished intercooled version capable of 12 psi.

The middle one is $4999 which is intercooled and allows 8 psi boost good for
475 RWHP. That's a bit more than I'd want or need. I wonder if they
offer the middle kit with a slightly larger pulley so as to drop boost down to
about 6-7 intercooled PSI that would put about 425 hp to the wheels??

I'll have to give them a call. The other thing to note would be the warranty.
This is the company Ford and their FRPP division personally asked Whipple to
develop a twin-screw s/c specifically for the 05+ MGT. Ford gave them
"engineering support" in the process.
So how could Ford not support and warranty the Whipple??

We'll see.
