I say if you are going to buy one I would suggest a used Saleen, I forgot the name, but the one with the 351W with the supercharger.

Besides that I believe that the Saleen is a better car. Check out the Roush article in the last Hot Rod magazine. The Roush seems to be more about look than go. I hope this helps a bit.

the latest issue of muscle mustangs & fast fords has an article on the saleen s281-e. the 4.6 with the supercharger. with slicks it ran like a 11.70 on a good gripping track. The roush looks better...But for speed id say the saleen. if your rich just go buy a saleen s7. good luck!

There are three S281 Saleens. all with different engines....powerwise. The first is a 4.6l engine that is not supercharged. it is basically a stock engine with a couple bolt on mods. it has 265 hp. The second is the same engine except has the supercharger. It is rated at 365hp. The third car is the S281-E. This ones engine is rated at 425hp and everything on the engine is different. The 2001 Roush Stage 3 mustang DOES not have 425 hp. it is rated at 360hp. The Roush info was in motor trend a while ago. The Saleen info can be found at there website. So i guess you can say the Roush stage 3 has more power then one Saleen....and thats the saleen, that has a basically stock engine. Good luck on your venture...go head and ask any other questions, ryan

i have been looking at pics and roush mustangs just look better and im sure if some more mods are done you can get more horsepower out of a roush, and finally i dont care what anyone says roush mustangs are the best sounding cars

hmm have you seen the Saleen SR? that is one sweet looking mustang. 5.4liter fuel injected....505hp and very fast looking.only like $160,000...the fuel consumption tax on it alone is an extra $3000 lol. Check it out at www.Saleen.com. I dont care what anyone says. Id take a Saleen car over any vehicle made. There cant be much to compare to an S7!!!
