1995 Saleen S351 R code #49, laser red car, leather recaro car, original Saleen Vortech powered
Here is how I bought it. It would start but stumble, and really had no power! It would not drive around the block. It was missing a key gasket in the MAS body so the voltage was jumping all over the place.Approx 23K miles. Anderson power pipe. Bassani X pipe, 3 inch exhaust system. Not loud, deep but not overly loud.Car was repainted VERY nicely). Carfax reveals a slight front ended in 1996 I think. New core support at that time.
What I have done:
Remove, repaint,re-install side skirts. I could not open the doors ( mainly the drivers door) so it had to be done, plus the paint was coming off all over.
Added NOS Alcon rotors, nice used Saleen Alcon Calipers, new pads. Originals were gone, had wrong brakes installed.
Complete AC redo, all new components
Clean and tastefully/carefully redye seats to cover some stains in the leather. It took weeks, they are now stunning. Soft, not cracked in any way, head rests are PERFECT.
Added MGW shifter, have old one, it is dead
Lightning 42MM MAS air. Have old one.
Added Bilstein shocks, all 6. Have original rear shocks
Disabled super FMU ( left it in place) added a proper adjustable fuel pressure regulator, and rail mounted gauge to check rail pressure.
Discovered that one rear 10 inch chrome LeMans wheel was bent, so I bought another. Its chinese ( as many were in 1995) , and the original had no driving issues, I just got a little freaked out when I saw bent written on the hub when I added new tires
Replaced EVERY suspension bushing with new high tech bushing parts. All in red.
Replaced a lot of MSD after market stuff with FMS original items.Coil, wires etc.
Added an MSD box.
Replaced after market clutch cable that was binding with an original piece. It has a big boy stiff clutch. That remains.
Ford racing wires, stock coil to replace MSD stuff that was causing mis fires.
Have but not installed, set of original NOS 1995 351 black mats, and Saleen marked NOS spark plug wires. These may not be included with a sale. Not sure. Second set of wheels may be available.
New dash Fuel pressure gauge. NOS from my stash. All gauges now work perfectly.
Brand new Continental tires.
New Maximum Motorsports steering shaft to replace a worn ford item.
Fixed Boost a pump. New plugs. Cleaned 42 pound injectors.
Dyno tune to rid it of bad habits. Did approx 452 HP (492 torque) to the rear, it has a lot more in it, but at the time, he sent me away to replace the msd stuff, to bring it back. Jake Lamotta did the tune. He says it has another 50+ HP in with another tune,it will need more fuel and an SCT tune. 450 is enough for me.
NO LEAKS! No oil drips.
Corrected some door shut line slop. Some scrapes on front spoiler, front under curb damage. Not terrible.
No bad habits. Does not stall at stop lights, starts and drives like it should, FRIGID A/C. Nice linear power. Blower does sing louder than I am used to.
