I'm assuming they rated it at the flywheel to hype up the car to sell it. It just may put out 150hp....at the flywheel.

Only 20 hp loss thru to the wheels isn't bad at all!

Since my winter wheels are too small to fit on the front...

I put em on the back. since they have more tread than what's on the back now. and my only slipping in the snow had been the back slipping out.

yes.. it looks terrible haha...

i'd go look under my car myself, but its too effin cold to lay on the ground! hahah. So the saleen's exhaust is just a catback magnaflow right?

So the exhaust manifold is connected to the cat converter?

If i want to get a hi flow cat, then I need to get a header with a cat connected?

Or a new header and a new cat? and what does all this mean for my o2 sensors? (is there one before and after the cat or am i just thinking of the zetec?)

Yes....the Saleen "factory" exhaust is a Magnaflow catback. As for the other, the cat is part of the factory manifold so you have to get a header with a flex pipe then have the high flow cat put in behind that along with some 02 bungs and extend the 02 sensors to reach the new locations.

On mine there is a 02 sensor before the cat, in the cat and after the cat.
