Turbo Shelby GT?


Recommended Posts

I just read in the latest Mustang Monthly that SAI showed a prototype turbo GT at Mid-America. It claims they spoke with a Vince LaViolette from SAI and that "Carroll ask all the time when we'll have a turbo package." Did I miss something from Mid-Ameica or is someone at Mustang Monthly smoking something?

There was no secret SGT in Tulsa. The only SGT's that SAI had anything to do with while at Mid-america was the SGT/SR and the KICKER Audio SGT, it is a Paxton car. (and It was broke, so they were working on it) I was with the SAI people the whole weekend. Spent most of it in the SAI trailer in the A/C. :happy feet:

This car will never be in the registry. It was not SAI authorized but was a one-off from Tasca from what I understand. Extremely nice job, very professional but not a SAI car.

 

EDITED:

 

maybe you should check the facts before you post something you know nothing about

Ah.....I have heard it from many authorized shops, j*ckass, it will go in as "your" mods and nothing else. A "turbo" was never authorized by SAI. Hey I liked the car but rules are rules. Why get so p*ssed off about it, just money spent is all. It will go in as a SGT NOT as a SGT/TC like you or Tasca wanted it to.

Well Dave, you can believe what ever you want from the mod shops, I'll listen to Roger/SAI. But you are right about the "turbo" as it's now a SC :hysterical:

If only you really knew it does exist come out to vegas maybe you could get a spy photo and as always when a company tests something its a "prototype" and they can register all mods as such and be legit!!!!!!

Notice the word they (SAI)

 

it was only a matter of time, Ford has them and EVO is building them :camera:

Like I said I loved the car but was only telling a story that I heard from someone else. When I think about it that person may have been a little envious of your creation? Ya think? As always though, take my posts with a grain of salt as most of them are very one sided and a bit jaded. Just telling it like it really is-

I drove the developmental SAI turbo Mustang GT at the 427 drag races in Vegas last weekend.

 

Very cool, different than my Whipple - not nearly as booming off the line.

 

Great drag race car - launched at 4000 rpms, it bit and ran 12.9s. Faster than the SC cars, which were all spinning their wheels.

 

I imagine with improved driver, 70 degrees and sea level this car would be in the low 11s.
