Welcome to my world...its all YELLOW

I'm happy to see the new owner of my old car is taking good care of it.  I got a few messages today regarding the pics below.  Thanks guys!  Below are the pics from Auto Enthusiast Magazine.  Here's the link : http://editions.amospublishing.com/KRPR/default.aspx?d=20101201
 
Here the pics.   Thanks for keeping it up Mark!     It's nice to know she went to a good home. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In order to take in the full experince while browsing our site, we've added some music that we feel compliments the look and attitude of our car.  Please enjoy
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A Brief History
 
Well lets see where to start…This is my first stang…I got it as a gift from my wife for our 17th anniversary…oh ya, she also made me quit smoking as part of the deal, if I light up she sells it. DOH! We live here in the miserably sunny fare weathered state of California …where all the sunshine makes me…well...happy.
 
About the car, It’s a brand new 2004 Saleen S281, got it in August of 05. Saleen added a Supercharger to it in December 05, it was ported, polished and tweaked at Saleen by one of the S-7 engineers…it puts out just over 10lbs of boost with the stock pulley. The list of upgrades is pretty short but here it is.

 Here's the pics, and thanks for stopin by!

       
 
       

This would be me representing the two websites that I've had the most exposure to and that have made me feel more than welcome to this new world.

Here are some pics of the ZEX install
 
This is the active fuel control unit, mounted to the driverside fender, near the firewall.
 
 
Below is the dual purge system installed to vent out the cowling.
 
 
Check out the bottle and bottle bracket.  The bracket comes from RPI Racecraft Distribution and in my opinion is one of the best brackets on the market.  Notice the nice little nitrous line wrench attached to the out line.  This handy little baby makes disconnecting nice and easy.
 
  
 
 
 
       
 
We got the new SOS A-pillar installed.  Check out the finsih, this looks and installs like an OEM part.  NO drilling, No painting, NO screwing on.  You might also notice that little shift light, that's from Raptor Performance and installs in a snap.

I finally got out to GTR Hi-Performance and got these bad boys installed I'm very VERY happy with them!

Brand new resevoir tanks, radiator, supercharger and powersteering.  I'm going to try and get these on next week.

   
   
 
A very good friend of mine came over and helped with (did) the install.  I'm very happy!

   

   

 
Got some new hose clamps to add a little bling under the hood.
 

A Speed of Sound A-Pillar Pod set.  This is an outstanding piece.  It's made from OEM Ford parts and the quality is top notch.  The color match is spot on molded plastic.  No fussing with paint matching and peeling down the road.  I highly recomend this one for anyone considering adding some gauges.

   

 
An Afco double pass heat exchanger.

       

Meizer High Flow Elecric Water Pump, free up a couple more pony's.

   

My wonderful wife got me a Yellow Top Optima Battery.  Nothing says I love you for the holidays like a brand new battery.

   
 
 
Something I thought was sorta funny.
 
 
Installed some Redline Hood Struts.
 
 
   

GTR Performance installed a Magnaflow X-Pipe.  Thanks guys you all rock!  I highly recommend these guys to anyone in Southern California.  They where professional courtious and very patient even with someone like me, snapping pics.  GTR ROCKS!  See you guys soon for more mods.

Wiper delets, a much cleaner look in my opinion

       

 
I just thought I would add a little glitz and glam under the hood.

       

Dragon Performance 75mm Throttle Body.  SCHWEET!  It's like a jewel.  The quality and craftsmanship is outstanding.
 
        

       

   
 
SCHWEET!
Look how nicely it goes with that JLT CAI

   

  4130 chrome moly alloy steel tubing subframe connectors.  These bad boys will get welded in soon.  I can't wait.

   

Some new shiny eye candy added to the car
 
       
 
 
I just got this trunk lid mat today from my wife as an early birthday present.  She got it from Saleen who is working with GrandMatDesigns.  Let me tell you it's high quality.

       

     

She also got me the EJECT button you see below.  I think it's cool.

       

Time for a rear break upgrade

In one word, WOW! Sorry to hear that the Saleen is no longer in your possession, but i can see why. Your whole site is WONDERFUL! Very nice pics and what an AMAZINGLY CLEAN automobile! Right up my alley! I hadn't really been a fan of too many Stangs after 1972 and before 2005, but that Saleen in yellow...I would slap down my hard earned cash for one! Before grabber orange came out, i was prone to screaming yellow as well. I actually planned on finding a supercharged Monte Carlo in yellow, but settled for red instead. Thanks a whole lot for the rating and good luck with the NEW, YELLOW wheels! Vroooooom, Vrooooooom!!!
