Can anyone explain the Paxton and certificate issues? New to Shelby’s and thinking about getting a SGT and adding a SC for DD.

all has to do with California and emissions and money for Paxton to get certified  search and lots of topics on it in this forum

I have a Paxton and love it (installed locally)

So in Delaware which is not quite as strict as California for emissions, shouldn’t be an issue. 

So my choices would be upgrade a low mileage SGT with a Paxton or get a low mileage 07-09 GT500 and upgrade the suspension

Some will claim that putting a non-Shelby S/C on it will decrease the value of the Shelby.   That is consistent with the general assertion that mods are on your nickel and won't increase the value of the car.  In the case of the Shelby GT "bone stock" or "Shelby factory upgrades" are best.  Like I said earlier, if you're just looking to get power out of the 4.6L, get a regular Mustang and put a blower on it, don't pay the premium for the Shelby underneath.    I know you want a Shelby so do consider the GT500.  Unless you track the car you won't notice the difference in handling.
