Internals are already forged. The compression is an issue as will be the extra front end weight. The GT350 has a remarkably balanced feel. Going to be hard to add a Turbo or supercharger set up and keep that.

Rumor was they were going back to the Cobra,Boss, or Mach 1 name.

As far as the engine if they were going to build a specific engine for this they could easily lower compression ratio and forge the internals. To my knowledge Saleen is suppose to warranty their cars. To my knowledge they do not do any internal engine changes.
