I was just at the ford dealership pciking up a part and i saw a saleen on the showroom floor

I was like damn since when do they make those and the parts guy was like i dont i just saw it yesterday but its crazy

After i got the part, I went out and looked at it and it comes stock with nitrious looks like a great like car but i cant get over the fact that the svt has more Hp than the saleen

i was also surpised it wasnt supercharged but it does come with nitrious so i guess it the only car with a warranty that you can use nitirious

Thats one sweet looking focus minus the hood scoop.


23K is way to much for anyfocus unless it has a V8 in it.

The nitrous must be a new thing, the one I saw last year only had an exhaust and intake to go with the body kit and suspension.

LOL if they warantee it with nitrous just go get some 125 or 150 jets and when [censored] blows up go put the 75 jets back and get your new engine. [censored] you could do that all year long! LOL

and why wouldn;t you? a blown engine means a crap load of smoke 95% of the time. nothing more nothing less...as far as safety is concerned.

I don't mean run around town with 150 jets but at the track it would be fun to go balls to the wall with a 150 jet or 200 jet knowing you can throw the 75jets back in and take her back for the new engine/tranny/clutch... thats was a bad idea if they warantee that thing.

exactly what I was thinking Zex.

Prolly use that blue chalk film, as soon as it's turned the stuff will crumble off and tell them right away that you were messing with it.

Something tells me that maybe Ford approached Saleen to make their version of a Focus to compliment the SVT. Since Ford loves the Fukus so much it was only natural.

Saleen, known for making bad-ass, throaty V8 beasts looks at the 4 banger and says "WTF is this sh!t? Throw a N20 tank in it, slap on some stickers & a wing and call it a day."

What I'm saying is that this is a very un-Saleen like car for them to do.

Fords been beggin Saleen to do other stuff than the mustang for a while. I remember when they did a concept Saleen contour, it was pretty sweet and they also had (my personal favorite) a Saleen Windstar...oh yes...:hitit:

what's under the hood of the Saleen Windstar? I always thought souped up minivan was the ultimate street racer - no one ever suspect your 4000 lbs minivan can whup Civic ass.
