Thanks. I had Doug Studdard, former owner of Bama Chips, tune it on the dyno. Boy did it wake up. The past two tunes from Saleen were very mild.

We got 420 rear wheel horsepower from it. Still debating the reat wing vs current Shelby 500 spoiler I have installed.

Did the racecraft have the 475 hp kit from the factory?

The Racecraft didn't have the 475 from the factory. I got that upgrade when I did the supershaker upgrade. Then we just tweaked it on the dyno and got 500hp at the flywheel. He said I would gain a little more by adding a larger cooler.

Nice job.

Before the S281 front end, it looked a lot like a Dark Horse.

Nice transformation. Maybe see you at the WA Ford Cruise in Saturday with my 08 420S. Would like to get Doug to tune mine, where is he located now?
