I have the opportunity to trade my low miles 2019 Bullitt for a lower miles Steve McQueen Edition with 775HP and all the other Steeda/Galpin mods that list out at $30K extra on a new Bullitt. Cash and my trade to make the deal is also $30K. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Depends on how much you want the extra HP.
Honestly, I wouldn't be able to justify it because I don't track / competition my car. There is plenty of HP on a stock Bullitt for my street use.
... but that's just me

Good point Bob. However, I built a 750HP '48 Ford pickup and a 1200HP 55 Chevy and they kept breaking at the track until I decided to sell the money pits and buy a 'reasonable' HP late model hot rod and that's when I chose the '19 Bullitt. So, I would be just getting back into the same old, same old of breaking a McQueen Bullitt on the track. It's probably best to enjoy my Bullitt and keep the money stashed in a hole in the ground ( a very small hole). And, the Bullitt is never a boring ride!

Although I wouldn't be opposed to being gifted the extra HP, I can't reasonable say I would benefit from it just doing street driving. The Bullitt "as is" is already a joy to drive.

The biggest advantage that I could see are the wheels, however they can be purchased for a lot less than $30,000

Same here. I built my 2006 GT and it ended up being a never ending scenario of issues and wasted money. No thanks.

If I had that opportunity and the cash, I'd do it in heart beat. Not that I'd every use the extra HP, just that fact that it's a Steve McQueen Edition and it would be much different than most others. Just me and my opinion.

I learned How to become a Millionaire, Start out a Billionaire and build your own Vintage Mustang Race car and race it Fun ! I love my stock '08 Bullitt with only 15,000 miles on it. I drive it & just enjoy it. They all told me I would never live this long to figure all that out !

If I had the money, I'd have a stock '19 and then another '19 I could modify with this package (naturally aspirated though). I really like what they did with this car.

So I have ordered a 775HP Whipple and it will cost me about $11K installed. That gives me a lot more yahoo!! and keeps the bank account in the black. All the other McQueen stuff is nice but would I have a trailer queen and not a daily driver?
