Default Saleen purchase after many years

Hey guys itís been a while since I been on the forum. Iíve owned over 8 saleen in my life time from 1997 to 2008 which was the last years I got the extreme abs sold it to get married house kids and pool lol. I been looking for a extreme yellow or red low miles and lost a couple before I made a move. My question was after all these years is it a wise choice to get a extreme for future issues and concerns that the car may have mechanicals and parts or better to stick to s281sc and modify with less worries if things go bad since it still more vase mustang got platform rather then extreme. What are your thoughts. I worked on them all my life Iíve owners several cobra and terminators as well so Iím very familiar with the mechanical standpoint.

The main differences between an S281 SC and S281 Extreme are the rotating assembly and transmission. Same supercharger.

All of the exterior trim and interior parts from Saleen can be / are difficult to locate.

Here's some banter that I downloaded and saved a few years ago when I installed the series V1 supercharger in my 2006 Mustang with the 127300 comp cams and was doing some research back then.

Posted by Brenspeed

"The most popular VSR camshaft for naturally aspirated cars would be the Comp 127300. This cam typically produces a 30 rwhp gain on a mild engine and idle and drives like stock. This is also the cam that was used in some of the Saleen Extreme Mustangs. A comp 127350 has a mild change for supercharged applications but we have found the gains are very similar to the 127300 being used also in supercharged applications."

and another opinion:

"Nah, 127300s, same cam saleen used in the s302/pj. They work awesome with the saleen blowers. Imho blower grinds are best suited for centri blowers. With the saleen blower and full boost down low the 127300 na cam is more suited to the power band."

Stage 3 530 HP Brenspeed, Comp Cams VSR 127300, 410s.
