sounds like a good project
the rear saleen bumper is only a little damaged easy enough to fix so i am going to continue to keep the full saleen kit on it. I may just keep the SVT wing though im not quite sure.

I actually have bigger plans for my 05. I was unaware that it was such a hassle two swap out the motors. If its that much of a pain i will just sell the svt motor and just rebuild the 2.3 later.

the reason it would be a pain to swap motors is because all the wiring,ecu etc. would need to be swapped as well

Yeah it was a very sad day, But in the end it seems like it will be working out for me. The worst part was i saw the guy coming.

Wow, you got LUCKY with that rear bumper! There was a thread awhile back where a guy was talking about a company he found that either made the Saleen body kit or something like that. I'll have to see if I can find it.

EDIT: lofl, i think that was you. In my research someone mentioned that you knew the guy who has the original molds or something. So there you go, and perhaps I don't read and you already said this.
