Don't hold your breath waiting for Steve Saleen to renumber any cars. SMS obviously went the cheap route and had one placard made for all Challenger conversions.

[sarcasm]SMS isn't charging enough for customers to expect a high quality product. Do you really expect to get a unique number for your car?[/sarcasm]

That is not cool with the price those cars carry. For being one of the most expensive "tuner" companies that do Challengers that would be inexcusable in my opinion.

I totally agree, not very professional on SMS's part, but very cool cars. I love the butterfly hoods.

You can buy the butterfly hood for $1600 as a stand alone piece from SMS. Not bad IMO for a cool hood with some MOPAR nostalgia

I would report this to my state attorney general's office - it could very possibly be considered fraud. Good luck with that - and I hope you get it resolved to your satisfaction.

I was considering putting one on my IE down the road but only if the linkage is strictly bolt on and requires no midification of the original throttle linkage.

Wow.... I would raise hell about this.
I am starting to hate this Saleen guy more and more I read about his crap.
Give it back to him and buy the Hurst which is Top Dog in every department anyway.

There's a couple of SMS Challengers for sale at this dealership:
Sacramento & Folsom Avenger, Challenger, Durango, Sprinter, or Ram 1500
Checked it out it's a #13 CAR thanks for info. Looking for the two #20's One Is New other is USED. Found them before, which when I mentioned there were two #20 they assured me they dont exist. Rancho Chrysler Jeep Dodge had one and E-Bay Tomball Dodge and recently showing up on YAKAZ CARS. That will be some one else's problem ? hope not! hope they see this article.

It appears that the TWO # 20's that I found and proved to my dealer,and informed Mr. Saleen, Found that one # 20 is being renumbered as #29 as the literature shows, and number was changed on bumper but NOT on the dash PLATE. Must be waiting for the new plate.
