Well I still can't get the transmission out of the car. But while I'm doing that I have a boost gauge to install. Is it pretty difficult to install? Is this something I should have a shop do to make sure it's done right? I would like it to work similar to my stock lighting.

What has the trans caught?

I'm asking because I have to eventually pull the transmission in my car and deal with what sounds like an input bearing.

I am following your thread (and the thread of others) to learn as much as I can. Ford does things a bit different than everyone else. I have been a Pontiac and Mopar guy my entire life.

The only Mustang I owned was a 64 1/2; and that was easy to tear apart. My baby brother had a Fox Body as his first car, and I had the chance to play with that a little, but I was not as involved with his car like a big brother should have been.

The New Edge Mustangs we own remind me of full size go carts with a body slapped on top. Everything is compact and tight. There is a sequence and secret combination required to take these little beasts apart. That said; I'm trying to learn from everyone else's mistakes.

I enjoy my car though. It really is a labor of love. My car is my personal therapy and relaxation.

Ok, back to your issue; what is holding you back with the transmission?

2002 Roush 360R #071 Build Thread

You get the one bolt that needs like a 3 foot extension?
Installed one in my 427R. Not hard at all, though I doubt you can mount it in the same place I did. Wasn't difficult, but need to do some more wiring work. It lights up but its dim. Also if you get the Roush gauge the instructions can't be more vague.

Well, the bolts holding the transmission in at the top are halting me right now. I just don't quite have the right extensions for the job. Every little part of this except the exhaust has been such a struggle. I thought the transmission would be pretty easy. It's actually really discouraging and kind if upsetting that I'm having so much trouble with it. I don't really want to mess with it more for a while. I'm planning on having a friend that is a new edge guru come over and help me. I will definitely say to make sure that you have lots of tools and extensions. Even using the cut off end of a bat as a cheater bar over a wrench still won't break the bolts loose on my transmission. It's making me kind of mad at the car. I'm sure you won't have as much trouble as I have with it. Everything is twice as hard, takes twice as long and costs twice as much when I do it haha.

Well I have the same gauge but I got it from a friend for free so it doesn't have the wires or tubing with it. I need to gather all the materials to install it and I'm actually putting it on my steering column. It will be put in a bezel like this one. I just don't really know what all I need to install it. Things like how much wire and how much tubing and where to nearly connect the tubing. I know I need a "add a circuit", white, red, and black wire as well crimp connectors. There's just a lot going into this and it's kind of overwhelming. I wish now I would have purchased a kit that was new with the stuff.

Anyway, it will be mounted like this one.

That's a good place. I would like to get mine in a spot similar to that.

So when I pulled the transmission out of my '00 I removed the trans crossmember and lowered the transmission a bit so that I could get better access to those bolts.

That is a good idea. I wish I had the extra cash and I could just throw a tubular one on there anyway. I might try that.

Well the Trans bolts are just as bad. The first one broke my swivel and also rounded off after pulling hard enough. I got one of them out. So now I'm going to have to loosen the motor mount and push up on the engine to get a better shot at the upper transmission bolts. This has been awful the whole way.

I'm not sure tbh haha. They are probably cheap. I'm in the process of aquiring all craftsman tools but I am using a bunch of random sockets right now that belong to my dad and some probably from his dad haha. I'm unsure of brand.

Actually that's not entirely true. The socket that rounded off the bolt were used by my mechanic friend that came over to help. I'm guessing they are very high quality since he used his when the bolt rounded off

Tools break. When I was pulling the heads on my Ram a friend And myself broke two different Snap On extensions. The sad part; they were 1/2 extensions. Snap On was amused.

The heads took three days to pull apart. Then I saw that I had a total loss on my hands.

That's about how this is going. I'm really hoping there isn't any weird damage to the transmission and hopefully it's just the clutch.

I know the M90 is crap but it's what I have and I've seen people put down good numbers with the pulley and bolt on. 400 Hp is a good number for a 2V. Still pretty safe with a good tune too. Eventually I will have money to build the engine and swap a big blower on it. It's just not a possibility right now.

Twins! Sweet car! A little history(you probably already know) in 2002 the first 360R's were built (80 White w/Blue stripes & 61 Red w/White stripes) in 2003 Roush put out the 380R(they just tweaked the 360 tune to get the extra 20hp boost, everything else is the same as the 360R) Then in 2004 they rolled out the 440A(400hp + 40th Anniversary) (to get yet another 20hp boost to reach the 400hp mark all they did was go from a 3in pulley to a 2.8in) So when I bought mine earlier this year, it was all stock w/6,300 miles on it. I got in touch with Roush to see if they could dig up a 380R tune( made 13yrs ago now). The guy got back to me and told me he did find the tune and to send him my computer. I said hold up how much is this going to cost me, he says he'd do it for free. Done! 3 days later I was running the 380R config. I went ahead and had a 2.8in pulley made for me and now I'm running the 440A config. Nobody would ever know it's been changed, and you can't beat $120 for another 40hp! Car runs like a champ, very quick So yeah 400hp is a good number. Here's a few pics of mine. They turn some heads for sure.

That is a beautiful car. I do love these cars. I was wanting to do the same thing. How did you end up getting a hold of Roush? Also, where did you get that 2.8 pulley? Which belt did you have to buy afterwards. I'm really looking to do this with my car as well

Thanks! I had the pulley made by South Florida Pulley Headquarters (www.southfloridapulleyhq.com) They made a high quality pulley that I couldn't see any imperfections with. I used the same belt since 2/10ths of an inch isn't much change as far as belt tension goes. I've been seeing about 8lbs of boost with it(up from the stock 6lbs), and I haven't seen any signs of slippage so you shouldn't have to change your belt. As for a Roush contact I got routed to a guy named Mike Bartolo (michael.bartolo@roush.com) who was extremely helpful in find the tune and after my flood of questions reprogrammed my ECM for free! You'll notice the difference immediately, she'll just want to go, and you're still running an official Roush set up that dyno'd at 407hp. I wouldn't try to push that engine any further without strengthening the bottom end. These engines are rated to handle around 450hp(don't quote me on that # it may be slightly higher or lower) as is, and have been pretty notorious about blowing the bottom ends out. Here's some pics of new pulley & a belt pic (still looks brand new) Good luck! You've got a pretty sweet and rare ride there!
