The ultimate 'wanna-be' SS owners poll!  

41 members have voted

  1. 1. What would be the best option for a not-so-rich SS lover:

    • Buy a 2007-09 (or 2010,too,if you like) GT500 and upgrade it with the SS package?
    • Buy a 2007-09/2010 SS(used,of course) straight away?
    • Get a 2007-09 (or 2010,too,if you like) GT500 and upgrade it with the other aftermarket packages which offer 750-900 hp upgrade?
    • GO FOR A FULL-FLEDGED 2011/12 MODEL!!! :happy feet: ?

Lets suppose,I want to own a SuperSnake and I prefer newest models over older ones (thats my choice,mind it!).And as we all know that the newer ones' prices are sky high!

So,if you were me,would you:

 

a.Buy a 2007-09 (or 2010,too,if you like) GT500 and upgrade it with the SS package?

b.Buy a 2007-09/2010 SS(used,of course) straight away?

c.Get a 2007-09 (or 2010,too,if you like) GT500 and upgrade it with the other aftermarket packages which offer 750-900 hp upgrade?

d.GO FOR A FULL-FLEDGED 2011/12 MODEL!!! :happy feet: ?

 

Yeah,I know it might sound silly,but then again,I want your opinions on "which will be the best option as well as affordable one.

 

Thanks,

Max. :shift:

Max,

 

If you really want an SS and "affordable" is a primary consideration... get a gently used one. You'll have the "real" thing, but with depreciation and/or the current economic conditions already built into the price.

It all depends on what you can spend.

 

If it's a newer model SS that you love......and funds are an issue......wait a few years and get a well taken care of used one.

 

 

 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^These are my thought also.

 

Buying a used Super Snake is the least expensive option, but there are not many newer body style Super Snakes for sale used. Then buying used also gets into desired colors. options etc. Finding a used car of any type "exactly" the way you want it is slim.

 

All of this taken into consideration, if you are of the finances to buy a new GT500 at 550 horse, for just a littel bit more, you could be at the 725+ level, but used. The new body is cool and 550 is nice, but it is not a 725 level car.

Buy used and build to suit. Modded 500's are everywhere for good prices. Then set it up exactly the way you want. You can build a better car for the price of a SS in ANY stage of its life. A Real SS is best to leave alone as far as value. The real fun in this hobby is to change stuff. Build your own

I agree with this also^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^.......if your interest is a "run of the mill" GT500, they are everywhere and modded ones are worth about as much as a lower mile used example, basically the cost of the mods are worthless except for the fun factor. Very few people are interested in someone elses, well worn, beat up GT500.

 

On the other hand the Super Snake..........................If you want a "unique car", not run of the mill, a CSM'ed Super Snake is the best option in my opinion. I have a feeling that you are interested in "unique", so run of the mill is not your interest by reviewing your poll options. As for "other packages" that offer big GT500 horsepower, yes they are out there, but cost to cost comparision quickly shows that you will not save much, if any, by going with another aftermarket package. I also dare say that the resale on a "Shelby upgrade package" Shelby will be better than a brand X upgraded Shelby, and this is not a Joe Lunchbox modded Shelby as spoken about in my first sentence.

 

As for modding a Super Snake, if you are just buying parts from Summit, Jegs, or any other non-Shelby authorized source..................well, this shows real quick at sale time. If you buy Shelby authorized parts through either SPP or a SPP outlet, different story especially if some parts "were" offered at one point in time and are now obsolete from SPP. <<<These types of parts can be worth gold at sale time. One item that comes to mind from the old days is the Shelby/Paxton S/C option that was available to owners of the GT350 Shelby's. SPP has good sales from time to time, 15%, even 20% off, so waiting for the right sale can net you Shelby authorized parts for Joe Lunchbox prices..............Nice! If it comes time to sell and "stock/original" is the bigger $$$ cars, bolt the original parts back on and sell the Shelby parts seperately, I would also bet that "used" Shelby authorized parts will sell for better $$$ than used Joe Lunchbox stuff.

 

To the original poster...........................When comparing the options.................are you looking longer term, or just right now. "Right now" is everywhere and it is fast, cheap and "unique" does not even enter into the discription.

With me being almost 17 and wanting a SS, I'd say that I'd probably buy a 2007-09 model and then upgrading it and then put the aftermarket stuff I want to put on. I'd get the JBA full exhaust system (with cats and Shelby JBA turbo mufflers), 605 TVS package only to swap it out for a VMP 750 HP TVS, add cutouts, pulley, griggs suspension, black Alcoa wheels and copper/orange calipers, shaker 1000, 345 nitto tires on wider alcoas, better injectors, K&N intake, McLeod clutch and better tranny, MGW shifter, and of course: CAMS!

 

What? Can't a guy live his dream? :hysterical:

 

OR

 

Wait for 2013 when a better GT500 comes out and "Self Super Snake" it meaning get parts that a legitimate SS already has only you will get the power and whole nine yards for less. 2013 the GT500 may be in the $60,000 range and I don't want to spend over 100K for a souped up mustang that is supposed to be "bang for the buck" with 800hp under 100K. Will it be in the registry as a real SS? No, even if I get my hands on SS stripes and logos, but it would be a hobby worth doing. And on top of that, you can modify it YOUR WAY! Just like Burger King! :hysterical2:

 

*sigh* if only the super snake price stayed the same like for the 2007-09 models or price was even lower...........

You got me there,friend! I,like most of you guys out there, want "SPECIFICALLY" a SuperSnake and not just a dumbass looking car with 750/800 hp on it.As for the SPP sales,well...you'll have to wait for indefinite amount of time to get your SS to look exactly like you want,as the sales' time and auctioned materials will vary time to time.

I agree.But I won't be playing around for that Shelby GT500 for long,I guess.You see other posters have claimed that the aftermarket packages don't significantly make a decrease in the costs to make it more affordable.So,I conclude I can go for a 2009/2010 used SS

BTW,every year Shelby offers a new SS package with refined looks and performance;I know its like a noob question,but can't we obtain the old (i.e. 2009/10) GT500 and get it modified? Do they only/strictly offer the package for a specific year?

And thanks for your valuable opinions,guys!

If the price per hp is the main consideration, then doing your own modding is the lesser expensive way for sure.

 

If owning a Super Snake is your dream, then owning a wanna-be will never satisfy your dream................you will still want a CSM'ed Super Snake in the end.

 

Discontinued parts that are already valauble from recent Scott Drake/SPP history, the Paxton S/C for the SGT and the 3" JBA exhaust pieces for the Optional Super Snake 700 exhaust system. The SPP/JBA parts from Shelby had "SHELBY" on them, the parts currently available from JBA say, JBA. It is already happening, and this has been in the past 4 -5 years.

Well said Robert. As of for a legitimate SS, I'd probably just go for the 2007-09 model and SS that with the 605 hp package and register it as a Snake, go to JBA for the exhuast that has "SHELBY" written on them, and the do the rest of my mods on my own.

 

Color wise with my mods in my last post to this thread with the VMP TVS, cams and all, I'd probably do it on a White, Black, or Grabber Orange Super Snake Coupe with block offs. White, Black, and Grabber Orange go really well with Black Alcoas and Copper or Orange Shelby Extreme brake calipers IMO.

Yes, a used 605 horse Super Snake, they are not discussed often, but are definitely in the price range of the average new GT500 buyer. Any Super Snake registration is done at the time of the cars build by SA or an authorized modification center, there is no "owner" registration for a Super Snake. If it's not done by Shelby or an authorized site, it isn't a recognized Super Snake and would a wanna-be car. Once the 605 that you mentioned above was built by SA, it is in the Super Snake registry.

 

The other consideration is the body style change in 2010, if a buyer desires the earlier look (more retro), the 2010-up is not going to be the car for them, same with the later body style, if someone really wants the 2010-up body, the older car is not going to be for them.

 

I recently checked with JBA to see if I could purchase the 2.5" to 3" catback that has the "SHELBY" identifiers on the 4" tips since it is no longer offered through the SPP catalog. They (JBA) told me that the only tips they offer are the JBA labeled tips and that the SHELBY labeling was proprietary and the only way to get it was through Shelby. Just recently Shelby had a basement sale and sold all of the old stock JBA exhaust and it is no longer available through SPP.

Ok, thanks. I don't mind if it doesn't say "SHELBY" on it. As long as it's still the same JBA chambered muffler, I'm fine with it. I don't mind if I have go go for a Non-chambered system as well, but I still really like the JBA tips that are used on the super snake.

So,basically what you're saying is that we can buy a 605hp SuperSnake and then mod it the way we want (i.e. making major modifications to make the engine churn out more hp),huh? Great idea,both of you! This way it'll be a registered and CSMed SuperSnake and we can mod it for higher hp outcomes like we want and IMO this one,SPECIFICALLY THIS ONE, is the best choice as its affordable and you'll get your dream CSMed SuperSnake!! Wow,man! Thanks Robert and SS94! :worship:

But can you guys brief me on the 2010 model compared to the 2007-09 one? Obviously,it'll cost more,but as Robert said somethings have changed till then.I basically need an estimation of the 'price comparison'.Oh and how much (on average) will a 605hp cost? Would you go for a vert or coupe then (I think we've to have a poll on this one too :P)?

The entry level 2010 Super Snake may have moved to 650hp, or 620, 630 etc., I'm not sure, but at some point it moved up from 605 after the 2007-09 production. As for mods after the Super Snake conversion, as long as you don't butcher the car up, it can easily be returned to the way it was, if that is where the most resale value is.

 

I am not sure about current 6xx horse power prices, I see most of the 725's going well into the $60's depending upon options and color, so the others are not going to fetch those kinds of $$$, however, they may not be far behind. It mainly depends upon the seller in this current market.

 

As for Coupe vs. Convert., the converts were only available at the lower hp level in the earlier Super Snakes, so that will be the starting point. Since the coupes were/are available either way, there are many to choose from as they come up for sale and like I said, it depends upon the seller.

 

The 605 cars have the same suspension options, brakes, hood, wheels, etc. as the 725's so a blower change and a ECM flash and you will be to the higher level. <<< I think? The question will be..............can a 605 be bought for the cost difference of the blower upgrade and still save some $$$? If not, you might as well watch for a good price on a 725.

 

One other "add" that was 725 and not 605, was the 1-pc. alum. driveshaft.

The "SHELBY by JBA" tips that you have seen are not regular production Super Snake, they were an optional exhaust that was offered through Scott Drake/SPP 2-3 years ago in the parts catalog. My Super Snake came with Borla catback originally and they say "BORLA" on the tips. As far as I know, the current Super Snake conversions still come with Borla catback, but the type/style of Borla mufflers may have changed since the earlier conversions.

 

From what I was told that this JBA exhaust system was originally planned for the 725's, and then the reality that only the catback portion of the system can legally be altered as part of the SA Super Snake conversion and still be 50 state federal emissions compliant. Then this system became an "option" in the SPP catalog. SA builds 50 state emissions compliant vehicles. Now, Shelby Motorsports is the outlet for further mods.

 

This is the 3" JBA that was offered by Shelby a few years ago.....................

 

Picturedownload5-2-09035.jpg

Picturedownload5-2-09035-1.jpg

 

I would guess that for the cost of $1600 (including shipping) for this full 3" system, not many Super Snake owners spent the extra $$$.

 

Somewhat viewable in the picture below, the full 3" JBA tucks nicely under the car. It makes the OEM 2.5" system and 2.5" Borla catback look small...............

Oh,well, now I doubt if the 605s are actually up for sales in the market.And if they do exist,they'd be very rare to find.But what I wanted to ask was what'd you prefer- A 605hp Vert or a 605hp Coupe? And why? Just another poll-like question ;).

+1 it really does make the car look a LOT nicer with the JBA system. May I also request a sound clip of what it sounds like on your car? I know that you have FRPP shorties on it and I already heard a SS with the JBA longtubes on it and would like to hear one with the shorties on it.

 

I just wish that it was also standard equipment on the SS the JBA system, makes it sound like what I think a Super Snake should sound like.

I don't think that 605's are uncommon, there were two thoughts on the 605 package....................one thought was, why would someone "need" 725hp?!?! The other thought was................$27,995 for the 605 vs. $31,995 for the 725.

 

Personally, a convert. would be nice. The top down option is something that is just plain cool!!

You're saying this because you own a coupe LOL.You'd have preferred a coupe if you owned a vert.Humans are always wanting things they don't have :D

No, I would have done a vert if it were offered at 725 back then..............but I preferred over the top power at 725, instead of a drop top option limited to 605 by SA.

 

It is just now, for 2011, that a Super Snake conversion is offered at the higher levels on a convert. I like the 2007-09 retro look better.

Wh...WHAT? What do you mean exactly? Do you mean that Super Snake conversions are being offered at the higher levels on a CONVERT? :o I'm sure you know what you said... WTF? I haven't been notified about this fact till date! :ohsnap: Can you please provide me with more details on that or probably a direct link on this?

Go to the top area of the main page of this Super Snake forum and click on "Build your own Super Snake". For the 2011 model click on Convert., choose your colors, NEXT, and click on 800hp KB option. The total so far with no other options is $84K+. It was announced earlier this year, or late last year that the 2011 convert. had some structural changes and is now available in the higher hp levels.

Oh,that? I've tried that one before--long ago,even long before I visited teamshelby forums.I've noticed the 'higher hp' with the converts,but I ignored the fact thinking,"Oh! It might be some bug or just another way to please yourself by thinking that you're gonna get an actual vert with THAT high hp..."

I didn't know it was for real!! But why is it that 2009-10 models didn't offer 725 at verts? I thought that due to the reason that at higher speeds,the vert might lose its windshield due to higher wind pressure,which the coupe could resist.But as I see this isn't the reason.Though I may be completely wrong,can someone explain me the physics and thoughts behind the idea?

Max,

 

The SVT Shelby vert chassis was beefed up in the 2011 model year, eliminating concerns about undue torque on the frame from a hi-po engine.
