While it is implied they took a Coyote engine to 351ci, I want to hear them actually say it. They Weisco 351ci stroker kit was in development hell for over a year, it seemed like there were too many issues to move forward.

This is a major tease!


edit: I've been searching for Saleen superchargers for 2011+ 5.0 Coyotes and it does not look like they are even available yet.

What the hell happened with Steve losing control of his own company? Did he sell out, and then buy it back?

What's the base engine for his 351CID engine.

My wild guess is that the price is probably going to be $10K more than a shelby...

It was a big hooplah that lasted a few years. Basically he was ousted by the board then bought it back as a private company, if memory serves. There should be a lot about that online.

Nobody knows what the base engine is. The guys over on S197forum are thinking the 5.4/5.8 Shelby as the base engine.

I think that is what the current S302 is going for, I'd say this car is $80k+.

I still think the Shelby is a much better looking car, it would be interesting to see a road test with both cars.
