2006 Saleen or GT better?

Have a v6 at the moment, saving up to trade in for a v8 type of car. I think the Saleen is v8, right? I'm having a hard time finding out information on what exactly is in either, but I don't know anything about modding, or what parts are good so even if I found something I wouldn't know much.

I really like the look of the Saleen model, but would it be as powerful as a GT model?

if it is a real saleen it should be a v8 and have a number on the bumper and yes it is more powerful than the GT and more expensive!


2005 Mustang GT Auto: Mineral Grey with Black stripes, Steeda UDPs, Flowmaster American thunder Axle backs, Bassani catted X-pipe , JLT CAI, Ford racing 4.10 gears, Cervini here and there.

The most powerful car in the parking lot.

Supercharged is plenty. If your not familiar with modding an Extreme is wayyy more car than you will be able to use...... & way more money as well.

Obama whines that we don't build stuff like the Hoover Dam anymore. With his EPA in charge nothing CAN get built.....ANYMORE!

If you put the Obama administration in charge of the Sahara desert they would find a way to run out of sand in a year....-ME!

Yeah the base saleen's are basically a GT with body panels and wheels. The extreme version will probably run you something close to a GT500.
