Thank you, I've been watching this one on ebay for over a month. The most its fetched is $18k and I'm sure the guy must have paid $18-22k range. Those Chrome accents belong on a Buick. Whats up with all that writing all over the windows. Flea market behavior.

Anyhow, thanks for looking out for me, I appreciate it.

Saleen190 11-18-2009 06:09 PM

no problem and glad you saw it....by the way, I emailed them a question and "per the salesman" those accents are magnetic and do come off.....I told him he needed to take them off and reshoot the pictures for the ebay listing hahaha .....sorry I couldnt resist , I had to know for myself so I asked them. i was hoping some idiot didnt ruin that truck and drill those in.

Install Videos on JDM website
 
I was just watching the install videos on the JDM website. April can't come soon enough. I am pumped about getting back to my truck and finally getting some time behind the wheel. Got the money set aside already for the stage 1 kit. I plan on getting that and the mosaleen idler set up haven't had a chance to measure the water pump pulley to see if thats correct or not; and probably the 4.56 gears (although I'm not going to even begin to attempt to install those myself). Anyway, just thought I'd put that out there about the vids.

Off topic but I've been seeing a few more than the usual s331's up on ebay. Sad to see people having (or choosing) to get rid of them already. I still love just looking at them, but then again I've only been able to put a few thousand miles on mine and I'm across the pond from her.

I just bought my first Saleen this week off ebay, # 26 (2007 F150) Red. Great looking and performing truck!

331Dave325 01-15-2010 02:56 PM

congrats, I got mine on ebay as well. Also, my first Saleen. I never considered them to be in my price range. I got mine for what I consider to be a steal at that time. I only wish I would have known about JDM at that point considering I bought the car in Jersey and drove it home. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time, for once!

Thanks for the tip on downloading this performance site. I'm happy with the handling on the truck after I had it aligned, apparently these 23 inch mags are hard on the ball joints and the tread on the inside of the front tires wear a little bit if you don't keep an eye on them.

The braking seems okay, yet I don't have the optional upgarded brakes, but once new brakes are needed, I might upgrade the rotors and rubber brake lines like I did with my Cobra Mustang Convt. It's an in-expensive upgrade and improves matters well enough for my tastes.

As far as the engire performance, it does appear that it needs to breath a little better, so this kit makes sense.

Ok, keep in touch and let me know how your upgrades go later in the yeear.

2007 Saleen f150 # 26. Mark.

I am into having a car or truck as stock as possible, so to really make the engine compartment look "stock" I have had a new aluminum nameplate made to replace the one JDM supplies ... not that I wouldn’t be happy to let anyone know the kit is from JDM, but I could not resist making the engine compartment look stock. I modeled the nameplate after the one on my '03 Harley F150. Have included some photos below showing the install and the replacement vs. JDM name plate. I have a few additional nameplates I am planning to put up on eBay, so stay tuned if you are interested.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
I know there have been a lot of posts based on the pros and cons for the JDM and Troyer kits, but my experience with JDM pre and post sale have been very positive. I’m sure the Troyer kit is great as well, just wanted that stock look.

Here are some pictres of the install ... the last photo is of the nameplate JDM delivers with the kit ... the first three are with my modified nameplate.

Believe the photo at the end of the slideshow is your truck. Unless someone else has a red S331 with Saleen nameplates on their JDM kit.

Anyone still interested in seeing about a group buy on the Stage 1 kit????

1966-Galaxie 01-26-2010 02:27 AM

Wow ... amazing what shows up on the internet ... yes this is definitely my truck. I guess everyone loves my cars. Had a 2003 Harley on eBay show up a few months ago with a photo of my Harley in the ad. Also, had my 1966 Country Squire show up in a bazaar photo being shot out of a battle ship as a 6,000 lb missile.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Where can I buy a 3.2" pulley and the alternator bracket for my S331 supercharger project???

2007SaleenS331 08-04-2010 12:37 AM

You can get the 3.2 pulley on Ebay...they usually have quite a few listed. The alternator bracket, you may have to call Saleen Speedlab to see if they have it in the parts stock.

SoKleen 08-04-2010 11:22 AM

How do I know which one to buy, most of them say 4.6l 3v on them and then the others say for mustangs. Which ones can I get?

2007SaleenS331 08-05-2010 12:57 AM

If you have a Saleen supercharger, all you need to know to get a pulley is which series charger you have. Mine had a 4 bolt pulley.

SoKleen 08-18-2010 05:28 PM

How do I know what series it is, it came off a 2007 F150 and it has the 4 holes in it. What is the lowest pulley I should go with, to keep the bottom end together, Troyer says 3.2, JDM says 3.0????????:confused:

2007SaleenS331 08-18-2010 11:30 PM

My 2007 S331 has a Saleen Series VI integrated twin screw supercharger. Yours should be the same thing. I have a 3.2 pulley on mine right now, but I do have a 3.0 that I am going to put on after I get my wideband and Mosaleen idler installed. Then it will get tuned on the dyno.

SoKleen 08-19-2010 09:23 AM

Where can I buy these pulleys?

JDM
EBAY
Troyer Performance.

Apparently the ones Troyer sells has some wider grooves for gatorback belts.

I always run gates belts, so that didn't bother me much..

The Roush intake JDM uses for the stage 1 kit is top notch. I love the "factory" look to it.

Don't forget to get the MoSaleen Idler... It gives a lot more belt wrap.

2007SaleenS331 08-19-2010 02:05 PM

I got my 3.0 off Ebay and it came from Brenspeed. Stage 3 Motorsports has them, too.

I've recently learned that JDM's web price is showing $300 higher than I was qouted a year ago. Of course I can't approve that qoute since my Harddrive crashed.
Anyhow it makes it harder to justify the HP per cost ratio and then combined that with the new talk of all this Pulley slippage stuff. Well that just ruins everything, one vendor offers the upgrade and the other doesn't.
Then several of the websites contradict each other. Well maybe not contradict but don't line up. One individual is selling the pulley slippage kit for one price and another is supposedly using the first vendor's kit is selling for nearly twice the price. And strangely the second vendor doesn't credit the first vendor anywhere on their site, so it all seems suspect.
Then the kit requires a software upgrade which of course is additional 'hidden' costs. Cost for the software(~300) and cost for a hand-held programmer(~400). So there is no cheap, quick fix in buying the pulley slippage kit; you're talking nearly a grand to perform the pulley slippage kit if you are starting from zero.
This is my biggest complaint about after-market products. Inconsistent pricing, confusing web information, etc.
Sorry for the rantt, I feel slightly better now.
With that said, I'm going towards suspension. I'm gonna lower my truck 2inches front and rear plus a rear sway all for around $550. It should look bad-*** and I'll try to take pics of the installation.

This was an old post and our new price is $1795 but if you want to call me Ill see what the best i can do for a SOEC member is ; ) With our kits we have no issues with belt slip. You will not need the idler kit with our package!

Do anybody know where to get a cold air intake for my sc s331 used or new please help

1966-Galaxie 12-21-2013 01:56 PM

Here are some companies that have offered cold air intakes in the past ... not sure if they still do, but a good place to start. Of course, on any given day, you never know what might show up on eBay.

Is there any reason for not selling the jdm upgrade kit anymore? ..WHERE CAN I GET ONE ? Thanks

Contact JDM Engineering or Jim Jr directly and see that they can do.

Metalcop 08-10-2015 06:02 PM

I contacted JDM, directly, and received a reply this morning. I received a brief, very negative response. The gist was 'the parts are no longer available.' I also asked about a long tube header installation and I was told 'there are no direct fit headers for your truck.' The impression that I was left with, after that response, was that I was dealing with a company that really didn't want my business. That is my opinion, but I believe I have the ability to interpret when I am being told to 'buzz off.' That is how it felt. Team JDM did state that they could help with a spark plug change and a custom tune, gee thanks.
:frown:
There are literally hundreds of cold air intakes that fit our trucks. I am sure that at least a handful of the better designed, more expensive one will match the flow of the Roush pieces used in JDM's kit. As far as the pulleys, I have not done my research, but I would also venture that there are still options available. So I guess I will have to piece together my own kit, and then find a good tuner, who actually wants my business.
Installing long tube headers might be challenging, and require some modification, but I'm sure that any competent shop would be up to the task. :cool:

For right now, I am happy with my trucks performance, in stock (SC) trim. When I am ready to upgrade, this is the route that I will be taking.

JimIII@JDM 08-11-2015 08:47 AM

Hi, I just saw your message here about your S331 truck and wanted to give you an explanation for our response. You see there weren't very many Saleen S331 trucks made, the market is minimal we get a call like yours about once every couple of months. Also your truck was built custom by Saleen and the under hood parts and exhaust especially are limited to the modifications that you can make. Unless it is all done custom. Which we did here back in 2007-2009 when we had our S331 truck. Now since the parts are no longer available and we don't see as many of these trucks we don't offer parts for them. Or at least very minimal options as you were presented. Really all we can offer currently for a mail order customer is this...

*SCT X4 with custom tune (adds about 30 HP, better throttle response, firmer shifting, and fuel economy improvements)
*Autolite HT0 spark plugs - good maintenance and prevents against spark blow out or detonation with added power.
*JDM Electric fan kit - some S331's came with fan's often they failed due to wiring and design issues. Saleen recalled some trucks and put the stock clutch fan back in place, as so they did with all production Harley trucks. Our fan kit is made of Ford components with a custom harness and Heavy Duty fan motor, circuits, and relays.
*4.10 or 4.56 gear - gives you better acceleration.

Now as far as air intakes go because your truck has a supercharger we are limited, there is nothing out there of those hundreds of air kits that is large enough to support the power of the Supercharger. Your mass air flow sensor pegs 5 volt reading in current stock form. If you want to add boost you have to fix this. So naturally you need a larger air intake. We used to make one but we can no longer get the parts from Roush who supplied us with a 108mm air box. The stock air box is 80mm and every aftermarket airkit is about 80mm. To support the air flow from a supercharger the mass air flow sensor needs to sit in a housing of 100mm or larger. If you can get an air kit that can support this then we can tune the truck and add a smaller blower pulley. But no one makes them, I've had a few customers find old Roush parts or make their own. Now one of the other problems with fitting the Roush air box and tube is you have to relocate your intercooler reservoir and power steering fluid reservoir.

The headers, as far as it goes no one makes a system that will bolt up to your side exhaust. We installed headers on trucks only when they came to our shop. Even then it was a lengthy and expensive job. The gains are worth it, especially if you get the air kit and pulley figured out. We can offer the headers but you have to get an exhaust shop to make the rest of the system from the headers back.

I read Nick's email to you, he was trying to be helpful. Sorry if we could not support your truck any longer for the upgrades you wanted but your going to find the market is slim and what you need to do is something custom. Good luck, and you can contact us anytime if you need help.

Thanks,

JimIII

Great reply Jim III. You are always a great help. :smile:

Metalcop 08-11-2015 03:34 PM

JimIII@JDM - I appreciate the in depth response, to my original inquiry. One exception that I will take is the assumption that I am/was a 'mail order' customer. I am located in Southern NH and JDM is only about 4.5 hours away from me. My plan was to drive my truck to your facility for installation of long tube headers, air box and tuning etc. Unfortunately I didn't do a good job conveying myself, as a serious customer, in my original inquiry. After the initial, dismissive email I received, I did a search for parts and found this thread. That is why I posted my opinion. Had I received a constructive, positive response, even with the same content, I would not have done so. Thanks again, for your time. I may still consider JDM for my upgrades.

JimIII@JDM 08-22-2018 11:44 AM

Just wanted to share we are re-releasing our S331/Harley Supercharged upgrade kit!! After coming up with a new air intake system we can use and tune with we are able to bring this kit back to the market and at an ALL TIME LOW PRICE!! $1095.00 + S&H Call 732-780-0770
