Q: How to visually detect the 475hp option?
 
I'm shopping for a 2009 420S. How can I visually detect whether a car has the 475hp option if the seller doesn't know and has no paperwork to determine the matter?

From the factory, the Racecrafts had no upgrades.

I could be mistaken, but the 465 and the 475 "kits" were the same except for the tune (that may be a debate as well).

The only two differences I can recall between the 2008-09 Racecraft and 2008-09 S281 S/C are...

1: Bottom of the stock airbox was not cutout on the Racecraft.
2: The Racecraft ran OE Ford Motor Company mufflers.

Someone that owns one of these vehicles may have more details.


The "old" Saleen S/C upgrade kits were marketed towards owners of 2005 & 2006 S281 S/C editions and people that purchased the Series VI in the aftermarket during 2005 & 2006.

The 2007-09 S281 Supercharged cars have the physical content (intake, pulley, injectors) from Saleen... though the tunes may be different (may).


I could be mistaken.

Blue injectors are a good sign that the SC has been upgraded

The 475 hp makes 6 lbs of boost and the S/C pulley size is 3.87. You will need a set of calipers to get that measurement.
