Matthew's 2005 Saleen S281 #221
I graduated in June of 2006 from the United States Merchant Marine Academy and wanted to get a toy to start off my life in the real world. I found this Saleen S281 3-Valve in San Diego and bought it off a CEO of some software company out there with 12K on it.
My brother, Nathan, and I have been working on getting the car show and track ready over the last year. It has been entered into the SVTOA Show and the North Texas Mustang Club Show which it was victorious in both. Many more items must be added before it will compete with the big boys from the bigger national shows but give it a year or so and it will be ready.
Current Part List:
The car pulled 295 RWHP on the dyno recently. It’ll run a 12.8sec ¼ mi. and an 8.5sec 1/8 mi. It should do about 4.5 0-60sec now. With the future mods we expect an 11.0sec ¼ mi. 6.8sec 1/8 mi. and putting out about 480 at the wheels and with the nitrous shot about 560. That’s all for now. Enjoy!!! I know that we have.
