Our Houston showroom is proud to offer this 2002 Saleen Mustang S281-E series! The E, for “Extreme,” goes far beyond the usual bolt-on power route, with a highly internally modified version of Ford’s 4.6L SOHC V-8. Saleen developed and built this new engine in house, under the eyes of powerplant guru Bill Tally and chief engineer Neil Hannemann. You may recognize the latter as the guy who taught the Dodge Viper how to race. He developed the GTS-R into a multiple GT-championship and three-time Le Mans class winner. Out go the stock crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, camshafts, and valve springs in favor of more durable, highly tuned Saleen-spec components. This modified long block is fed air and fuel through a 90mm mass air unit, a larger inlet tube, and a new intake manifold. The leftovers exit via a 2.5-in. stainless-steel exhaust system including a newly developed X-pipe and dual center-exit tips. Saleen tops it off with a high-quality Lysholm twin-screw supercharger and a water-to-air intercooler, then backs it up with a Tremec T-56 six-speed manual trans and an 11-in. clutch. The result is 425 hp at 5400 rpm and a 440-lb-ft torque peak.n order for the chassis to keep up with its newfound power, the E gets 18-in. alloys and Pirelli PZeros, larger vented and cross-drilled brakes, and Saleen’s Racecraft suspension package. Not to mention the composite hood/fascia/rocker panel/wing, plus a full Saleen interior and a host of other upgrades.The S281-E’s specs and performance are impressive; in terms of numbers, it’s an amazingly close rival to SVT’s own Cobra R. Only 0.06 seconds slower in the 1/4 mile than the 2000 SVT Cobra R! This car is one of only 3 made in mineral gray and the 2002 only Recaro seats rock! The front bumper was repainted due to some rock chips and all the work was done here in Houston. This specific car is signed by Steve Saleen on the dash and the radiator cover. Also signed on the dash by Saleen's designer Phil Frank from 94-2010. You will kick yourself if you let this rare beauty go. Please visit us at gatewayclassiccars.com for more HD photos and HD video.
