495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

Discussion in '1999 Ford Saleen Mustang S-351' started by 4 the man, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. The new vette z06's get to 60 in less, and they "only" have 405 hp. They also cost about 5 thousand less, so i think they vette remains the better deal.<!-- Signature -->

    I'd still rather cruise in this, maybe if it was a hardtop though.<!-- Signature -->

    The low profile Pirelli tires that Saleen uses seem to have poor traction for launch. Make no mistake, this car is a beast.

    What do you think of the GM 454

    wheelspin-need i say more?
     
  6. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    thought it was its rear end?
    3.27 is extremely tall
    if it was running a 3.91 i reckon it could get to 60 in about 4.1

    I love the Saleen Mustang S351 but this is pitiful. 0-60 in 4.6 seconds with 495 hp and 490 lb-ft of torque and the car weighs 3400 lbs. And why the hell do they run a 3.27 rear end in this? could at least run a somewhat performance like 3.55 or better yet a 3.73. Or go with one person mentioned a 3.90. Saleen was SO CLOSE in having a absolute monster.

    it probobly goes a little faster than that, more like 4.0, think tho,they should prob run 3.73 gears on this car, then it would be good, but u no its gotta go faster than this

    4.10's and drag radials, problem solved.
     
  10. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    THe 0-60 is hindered because of so much wheelspin, you can't get them to go they'll just sit and spin theres just to much power
     
  11. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    2 reasons: traction and ratios. Put a better rear-end on this and equip some wider, better tires and u got a car capable of smoking a Z06. Id personally throw some slicks on there, just to really get some boost of speed.
     
  12. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    probably put on some hoosiers or MT I tires, because on a syock mustang you can fit 315's in the back and like 285's in the front, this has 225's and285's right, put on 285's in the front and like 305's in the back

    will u shut up...this is a mustang forum
     
  14. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    makin a model of this car if anyone cares...But do u think Saleen will come out with a faster version of the 05' Mustnag?
     
  15. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    probably....better technology and that stuff
     
  16. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    YES, they will. But not till the 06 Model year probably. At that time the Cobra will return too. And hopefully a BOSS version will debut too. Id like to see the MACH 1 come back for 06 as well. Here should be the order of performance from worst to best: coupe, GT, Mach 1, Boss, Cobra, Roush, Saleen, Shelby (if they even do get back in the game).
     
  17. Re: 495 hp and it only gets to 60 in 4.6

    Don't forget Steeda. You could probably include Kenny Bell, but they mostly just make the performance parts for the Mustang.
