Norman, was that S281 one of the supercharged ones?PerforminNorman said:
BTW, I was at the dyno last year and an S281 dyno'd at only 280 RWHP. He was not happy.
Correct...in N/A or supercharged version. I ran a supercharged one from a highway roll in my Lightning truck. Side by side to 110 where we had to slow down.normjack said:The S281 isn't even a match for the SS Camaro or WS6 Trans Am
Yuppers. He immediately pulled the blower and bought a Procharger. I haven't seen the car since it was torn apart at the local dyno shop.WA 2 FST said:

There are a LOT of them that are just basically stock 2v 4.6 motors with the suspension/body kits.
None of them are worth the $$ new. I bought my S351 used with 12k miles on it...got a great deal, and sold it 6 months later for more than I paid.
I don't know which year model you saw, but my '98 car had 295/35-18s on the rear and 265s up front. These are the stock sizes for that make/model year.VettTheRipper said:I saw a Saleen a few weeks ago. After looking at the back side I could care less what was under the hood......there's hardly any rubber. Even if that car was 400+ HP, there is no way the tires could have handled it.
