The Ford GT went from concept to production in record time thanks to companies like ROUSH and Saleen that have niche manufacturing capabilities. Saleen handled the assembly of the GT in its 200,000-sq ft facility in Troy, MI, and whether it was part of the deal or just a thank you from Ford, Steve Saleen ended up owning a pre-production Ford GT, one of only nine built. There are some differences from the production version, including a 4.6-liter Mustang Cobra V8 that has been bored out to 5.4-liters, as well as a unique supercharger system made specifically for the car. The bad news is that its pre-production status means it can't be registered as a street legal vehicle, so this Ford GT will most likely be relegated to a collector's garage.

I wonder why you can build a kit car from scratch and register it but not this car.
Yeah exactly my thoughts. I don't see why you couldn't register it as a kit anyway.

You can not bore a 4.6 to make a 5.4!
and nor can you put a 5.4 crank in a 4.6......it's too bad the 4.6 and 5.4 parts aren't interchangeable like the 302/351
