Manufacturer's Warranty

Discussion in '2005 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo' started by boomerk9, Feb 25, 2006.

  1. Mr. Tally, just out of curiosity, does Saleen provide a manufacturers warranty for the S7TT's 1000hp kit?

    Thank you.
     
  2. No, I actually heard it voids the warranty.
     
  3. This is true, as the kit is not a certified emissions part, it is sold as purely aftermarket, it does void the emissions warranty it also voids the engine, all other aspects are kept intact. There is a aftermarket warranty that covers the parts and labor on the kit
     
  4. Whats the warranty for the regular car?, and what kind of will there be a warranty for the 1000hp production model?
     
  5. Does that apply to the turbo versions in general(750hp and 1000hp)? ie the factory warrenty only applies to the naturally aspirated car?
     
  6. No the 750 hp car has a full 2 year/ unlimited mileage warranty, + the full emmisions warranty, that all new cars have to have, it is impossible to not have a warranty any more as all cars must carry an emmissions warranty
     
  7. does Saleen plan to produce the 1000hp version as a complete new car?

    or will the 1000hp remain an aftermarket kit?

    Thank you.
     
  8. Time will tell
     
  9. I'm really starting to hate time
     
  10. Thanks. I thought maybe the turbo setup itself was an aftermarket item.
     
  11. No, its production. Now if we could see 1000hp go from aftermarket to production...now what would be nice is if somebody ordered the 2000hp after market, and ran full testing on it. Mr. Tally, you said before that that engine was dyno only up to this point...do you have any ballpark figures for an S7 with that kind of power? I'm sorry to ask again, but you could only really tap that with Bonneville tires, right?
     
  12. I think 2000hp will require a totally different transmission to cope.
    At that level it's basically a pure drag racecar.
     
  13. I thought he said the current tranny limit was like 1250hp, or was that ft/lbs of torque?
     
  14. SAR said that they've tested the tranny up to 1200lbft torque.

    Say the engine develops 2000hp at 6500rpm. At that rpm it's putting out 2000 x 5252/6500 lbft torque = 1616 lbft. Way too much for the tranny to handle.
     
  15. Thanks, OK. But how can you say it would anly be a pure drag car? With proper gearing and tires, I think it would be OK.
     
  16. Have fun comming out of corners with that power <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>.
     
  17. Floor it and half your tires would be on the track.
     
  18. man with 2000 HP you could make first gear go up to like 90MPH
     
  19. Meaning you wuld never take the car out of first gear during legal driving in the U.S., with the exception of Montana after dark.
     
  20. lol, unless u actually wanted traction when u pushed down more then (10^-100)th of a meter

    driving LEGALLY with so much power on first gear would be such a pain, the tiniest shift in pressure will either rocket u forward or bring u to a stop
