    Sounds like you have a flake dealer. They should know all of this already.

    Is this a true Ford dealership that sells new Fords or just some other brand of dealer that takes trade-ins and sells used Fords?

    After numerous phone calls I finally got them approved through warranty. So much hassle over something so petty. Hopefully get it back early next week.

    Another update, truck is still in the shop, they put 39lb injectors in but after installing them they now say that it toasted the catalytic converters when the injectors went bad. As of now I am supposed to get the truck back today. So to recap, they put new plugs in, new coil packs, 8 new injectors and a new catalytic converter. Hopefully I can finally drive this thing some now, keeping fingers crossed. They have had my truck for a month, I'll never go back to the same dealership for work. The dealership was going to try to make me pay for the plugs but I told them that since they were faulty secondary to the injectors failing then the warranty should cover it and they said no, that I would have to pay. SO I called up my warranty and they gladly said they would pay for the plugs. I think my dealer is just too lazy to call and get the work approved. So all I'm out is $100 bucks on all this for my deductible on my warranty. So far I'm pleased with my warranty I purchased.

    Guess I jinxed myself by posting this. Dealer called and said the other converter is clogged up now and it will be 3 more days waiting on parts again. This is never gonna end.....

    that's ridiculous, it's warranty work they should just replace both sides of the mid pipe / both cats at the first sign of a problem with them.

    Thumbs up

    Yeah, too bad you're having all these issues....but great job on getting that extended warranty! It sure sounds like it's taking care of things for you.

    You'll love driving it when you get it back on the road with all the compliments and head turning going on!

    Here's to better days ahead!

    I said the same thing Blind. I was already under the impresssion they replaced both converters. I asked if they could just bypass them and he said it wouldn't run right if he did that so I said whatever another few days, it's already been a month. It's like a dangling carrot in front of me lol

    Finally got my truck back in the 6th week of it being in the shop. It seems to run fine, the miss is gone. Injectors were the culprit. Maybe it's just me but it doesn't feel nearly as fast as it was before, I guess it's time to start modding.

    That's great that you have it back and it is running better without the miss.

    The previous owner might have had a updated flash tune in it and the dealer flashed it back to an OEM stock tune so they could work on it.

    See if you can find a Saleen dealer and see what tune they recommend or maybe try to find an SCT or Diablo handheld tuner for it and at least use their performance tunes until you decide if you want to change pulleys and get a dyno (preferred) or email tune.

    I may have the answer to your problem, I also have an 07 Saleen HD but mine has about 120,000 on her. Several months ago my truck started experiencing the same problem. I changed the fuel filter, transmission filter and fluid, and attempted to change the sparkplugs. I bought the special magnetic socket with extension and broke the #1 plug. Had it towed to the local Ford dealer who did finished the plug change. They broke 4 more and the and only charged me $50 per plug to fish them out(bad head design). Fixed the problem for only a short time and the problem started again. I'm a decent mechanic but for me, I would have to start changing: injectors, coil packs, etc... so I took it back to Ford. They spent 6 hours running every test they could run with no success, spent 90 minutes with Ford in Detroit and had them scratching their heads also. Then they called Saleen and spoke with a Technician who had been with Saleen before it was sold. He stated which ever bank the problem was on(mine was on the drivers side), the Catalytic Converter was more than likely bad. Had to have one special made due to the super charger but that did the trick, truck runs like a screamin eagle again. I'm fixin to change the one on the passengers side but having a little finding where to purchase the correct OEM part. Hope this helps. Phantom F-150.

    My time ran out and I missed the part where you found the problem, sorry for the above.

    I have the same truck 07' Saleen supercharged Harley Davidson. Mine has 40,000 and the cat went out on my drivers side. Replaced with one from autozone for $100. Ford mechanic said it would be fine. Seems a little slower now though. Do I need a different cat?
