Default Turbo Saleen will stomp you

Check out this Saleen that Livernois Motorsports (www.livernoismotorsports.com) built.

It makes 673rwhp now with a conservative tune.
See the vid of it on the dyno HERE

I Love that damn turbo sound. That high pitch whistle would definately **** off all the dogs in the neighborhood.

Good Video Unit, here's one you'll definately like. He's a local. Listen to the tires as he's going down the track, and look how close he gets to the wall on the topend, he doesn't like to lift at all.

He ran 8.90 on that pass but runs quicker up here in the thin air.

I agree. The color is somewhat suspect. Actually, the entire car is pretty beat up except for the Livernois built motor. No one can say anything bad about a car that makes nearly 700rwhp with a conservative tune. I've been doing too much with my boy from Livernois tonight. The car is sitting in the garage here. It's pretty sick I'll tell you that. It runs off accel DFI. I need a big blower on my '03 Cobra.

I watched your new track vid. Your car is sick considering the DA that you race at. You should be very proud.

I love the sound of the turbo too. I think my next plans are to go the Forced Induction route.

sure sounds good, but why did the dyno graph have the hp and tq lines cross at 4600? aren't they supposed to cross at 5252 rpm ?

I didn't notice that. I'll ask about that.

I know it was tuned in boost increments up to 26psi. It made the best numbers at 17psi which is better on the motor anyway. I guess it became inefficient over 17psi.

Thanks unit, I am pretty proud of it, just wish she would've hit 10's before we started swapping in a new one.

Maddboost, whats up, we are working on it

You'd hit 10's here for sure. I usually race with the DA around 2000'. Not great, but it's no where near what you're dealing with.

Unit, you ever see the dyno vid of the turbo stang pegging a 1200hp dyno? The dyno chart looks nuts... the curve screams up until it hits a hard flat line at 1200hp. That's pimp status +2.

(if someone wants to host it, I'll send it to them)

Not only have I seen the vid, I was just under the hood of it a day ago. Dan Millen is a good friend of mine. His car makes roughly 2100rwhp.
