Best bet is to join the Shelby American Automobile Club (SCCA) , headquartered in Las Vegas, for more information . Not trying to discourage you, but I would never attempt to modify my GT500 . Some reputable tuner guys can do it , but the best people to go to are the Shelby American factory in Vegas - they work hand-in-hand with Ford SVT and engineer it to run to it's full potential without creating engine problems. They may be able to recommend an approved shop in your area to make the modifications. Check out their website. What I know is that a SuperSnake has the same 5.4L engine but has a higher compression super charger than a GT500 and the engine control computer is "tuned" to work with this specific supercharger. Good luck ! Not a project for the novice as you can create more problems than the changes are worth - and your "cloned" SuperSnake will not have the $ value of the real deal.
