I would get rid of those flow masters. Get a tune with new exhaust 373s or 410s. Your choice. Injectors. Cams.

I don't know if its been tuned. The guy I that had it last gave me a slip showing that the car made 386 rwhp. The paper was torn and ragged and really could not tell what car was making those numbers.

I want borla(stingers) exhaust. Cams. CAI(don't know what kind yet). And an awesome tune.

Nothing. I love the way it sounds now. I wouldn't change it anytime soon because the mufflers are new, but they had turn downs on it. I put it back like it supposed to be.

Had them on my 97 cobra with offload x-pipe. No car I have ever heard sounded better. I still miss it. My wife even wishes my Shelby sounded that way.

I have just read constant threads and forums Of people saying flow masters restrict your motor and I've had flows on my car and I just think it's a common sound. Everybody has flow masters. I just think other exhaust sound better.

I'm not sure really, maybe 10psi but it's all in the tune, you can run 400hp on a safe tune

Can u show off some pics of this 360r ive always loved them. In your case the 360r is already supercharged and I honestly would go with a new mid pipe. Your car should have the side exhaust and dont know how many options there are out there. A sct tuner would help a bigger air intake and throttle body. Gear would be nice but dont go too high its supercharged and 4.10s might be too high. Overall your car factory is dang fast.

Profesional Bench Racers Responce.. Start with a plan. Overall mods should always depend on how far you are willing to push your car. Is it street is it strip is it a corner slinger? A few things first depend on where your mods should start. Whats the best aftermarket block you can afford? That determines how much horsepower you can build. How much money you are willing to spend is the largest contributor to performance mods.. Next is tires. What kind of tires will this car use? Multiple sets of tires? From there comes power adders and then you can determine Gears and weight. Next is bolt ons. Seems a bit reverse I know but it will keep you from buying the same type of performance parts twice and overall save you money and give you a car that drives and performs like you want it to. Once the car is fully planed then you can start spending anyway you want starting with bolt ons if you wish.

Absolutley and remember to listen to your fellow stangers when it comes to specific parts. If everyone says somthing works better than somthing else they are most likely right with rare exceptions. Also when performing mods a variation of mods like intake exhuast pulleys tune driveshaft etc. will give better gains than sinking all you money into say a giant exhuast system for example. In other words little improvements on multiple "systems" of the car will yeild more performance than fully upgrading one system. If you have any questions reguarding specific parts and their performance dont hesitate to ask.
