Ohh i wouldnt do that....yet! I got the saleen side skirts waiting for install but havent gotten the bumpers or rims. I see nothing wrong with saying Saleen on the banner or on the side if u got all of this. Why not? U are using saleen genuine parts so why cant u wear their name? just like a k&n filter sticker or flowmaser or whatever. Now i wouldnt go as far as numbering it on the bumper and if someone asked me, i wouldnt lie, id say no its a gt with a saleen body kit.

thats sweet.... now i know what i should have done. bought a Quad Coupe, put the redline bumper and rims on it, slapped its ass and called it a redline. I dont mean to argue but the use of the name Saleen is lil more than just a component to your car such as an air filter. You cant go to just any Ford dealer and buy a Saleen. If you kitted it out, that would be cool, but if you badged it... that would just be wrong.


p.s. Aeain... sorry about hi-jacking your thread.

here we go again..man i got on this sight to talk to u RL owners and praise the car u have because i like it very much but since i drive a mustang seems most on here have to dog me. Anyways i would never tell anyone its a saleen if asked and if u have a body kit on it and all, then u can display the name saleen because thats who made the freaking stuff. I didnt say add a saleen air filter , if there is even such one, and call it a saleen

I don't think it's the fact that you have a Mustang, it's just that to some people, you're doing kind of a ricey thing by putting Saleen stuff on a GT. Even though if someone asked, you'd say "no, it's not really a Saleen".

It'd be the same as taking a v6 Camaro and putting an SS style hood and spoiler on it.

It sure would make that camaro look better by adding those parts. If i took a v-6 and did this then i can see all of your points. A 98 base model saleen is not much different then a normal 98 gt. A few suspension pieces here, some body parts and graphics, some better plug wires, air filter and a lil better exhaust, some brakes and thats about it.The biggest difference is the body itself. Now the supercharged model thats a different story. If i was to drop a cobra motor in my car and add cobra emblems then i guess that would be posing too. even tho thats the MAIN difference in the 2 cars is two more cams! oh well...i like the Rl :D

Also saleen in those years usually took off the fender GT badges and put pony emblems on there. The kind the v6 stang has. I guess Saleen is being ricey since it doesnt have a v6 in their! :eek:

I know it doesn't have a V6, I was just using the V6 Camaro as an example.....

Whatever man, I was just trying to explain that people aren't just giving you a hard time becase you drive a Ford.
