    Also I know the m90 blower is not the greatest and it runs super hot but with full exhaust will these cars be able to keep up with stock terminators? Also with full exhaust should they trap over 110? As soon as I get the car it will be put on the rollers and tested at the track just wondering what to expect.

    Well how many miles on it? What are your goals with it?
    Any suspension mods done?

    If the driver in the termi sucks or you have suspension work done..... yes other wise no

    Well the funniest way to test belt slip is take every gear to redline if the tone of the blower stays the same then its slipping but if keeps getting higher pitched ur fine.

    If your SC does slip, that is an easy fix. MoSaleen sells a SC deflector pulley for our cars. It's an added pulley that wraps the belt around the SC pulley. Works great and I have had one on my 02 S281 SC since 2008. You can go to MoSaleen.com and check them out.

    Also, if you get the VIN and the bumper number, I will tell you what options it should have and if it is an authentic Saleen.

    Saleens are Specialty Cars, And They Look Awesome. Do A Little Research On Them. My Fav is the 99 To 04.
