2002 Roush 360R #071 Build Thread

Well, I figured I should go ahead and make a build thread. I don't have much of a plan yet but it will help me organize my thoughts and ideas as well as keep information in one place. I don't know that you could call it a "build" yet. But some day I hope it will be. Right now it's a totally stock 360R with a couple minor issues that I need to work out as well as some things I would like to do to the car to boost power some. Everything should be tasteful enough to not devalue the car. Thanks for reading guys! I will be asking questions and when I modify or do things to the car I will update it here. Thank you in advance for putting up with me!

That thing is so sexy. White with blue stripes look awesome on a New Edge Roush.

That thing looks nice. The motor is already kind of at the edge even with that baby M90. What exactly are your goals for it? Build a motor on the side and drop it in?

Thank you guys for the compliments. I really appreciate it. I love the car. It feels great to drive.

I don't really have a plan yet but the car would mostly be a good cruiser/ weekend track car. I'm not wanting to make the car unreliable even though it isn't a daily. So I figured a little under 500 hp should still keep it pretty reliable (in the long run). 450-500. What do you guys think? As of right now I don't have anywhere near the funds for a true build. But I am alway looking for good ideas. I need some new headlights and tails as well as starting to get the basic bolt ons before getting serious. Eventually I want a mild cam built 2V with an upgraded blower. If I understand right then this blower is already pretty maxed out so porting it would be a waste. But I love the sound it makes so I was originally just going to have it ported and the sound holes filled and then put back on when the engine is built for it. I think Roush has already done that though.

In the meantime, I plan on doing intake, full exhaust and tune. Probably a smaller pulley also if I can source one. That should be good until I can have the engine built.

Thanks again for the compliments. I sure do like the way it looks. It took me a while to get used to the wing. I have thought about putting a saleen style wing on it instead or removing it. But I hate to take roush parts off it. I do need a GT Rear bumper though as it appears a v6 one is on it becuase the PO replaced it thinking it was the same... lol

Also, I wanted to have the blower and part of the intake painted white. Just becuase I think it would look great. I wouldn't mind showing this at car shows either.

Is it okay that I have a build thread without a specific build at the moment?

Thanks again for the replies!

I have a thread going for a while now from when I was going to look at the car, lol. Its just random stuff and rants and crap. Me obsessed about which lowering springs to use and tires lol. But its awesome to get everyones advice on here, even if its not what you want to hear. I dont have a true "build" either but it will be cool to document all of what does get done on here to look back on.

Thank you very much. I really enjoy the car and just got really lucky to have it. I never saw one in person until I found this one.

That is correct. I think there were 80 white ones with blue stripes and the rest were red with white stripes. (If I remember right)

A lot more rare than my 427R. They should've made more of those 360R's. Awesome cars.

Thank you! It kind of surprises me that they didn't make more of them. I think they were really considered a black sheep after the terminator was released. Even though they held their own performance wise it seems. I love those 427R's. Definitely on my favorites list.

Awesome car! I have two 360r's #64 with 25k miles (white with blue) and #114 with 2k miles (red with white). They're fantastic well balanced cars

I do have a quick hypothetical question. If I wanted to ditch the M90 for more power. Would the newer TVS Roushcharger fot onto my engine? Or what is the next best substitute? I definitely want a twin screw instead of a Centri type blower. I was wanting to stick with a roush blower due to the car being a roush.

Btw. This will be in the future a good ways. I'm just trying to make a plan for the car. Lol

That's pretty amazing. Pretty cool to get 2 cars so rare and so well taken care of. Mine just hit 22k miles. I do love these cars.

Iirc you will need to remove all the Roush stuff and install a Tork Tech kit. Or go 4V.

Why would I need to do that? I couldn't use a twin screw on the 2V?

I see, the tork tech kits seem very interesting. But it's hard to tell of the 2300 fits the 2V at all. This wouldn't be til much further in the future. I guess I was just wanting to know for reference.

The Roush setup only works with the m90 afiak. You can check on the TT site to see if 2300 fits. You will not really be able to use it with the stock motor tho. Rods will let go at 450-500.

Bringing the thread back for a bit. Sorry I haven't answered. I do plan on doing an engine build before upgrading the supercharger. Definitely don't want it to let go on me.

I was thinking about doing a pulley upgrade but I was thinking that it might be better to change the crank pulley instead so I don't get any belt slip. What size do you think I need and should I just do the one on the supercharger instead? I think the size of pulley on the supercharger I would go to is 2.8 to give me about 8-9 lbs of boost. I don't know enough about the other pulleys unfortunately.

2002 Roush 360R #071 Build Thread

If the M90 is like the one on mine; you might get 8-9lbs total, not added. The blower is terrible; you're best bet is to get rid of that thing for a Whipple or Kenne Bell. Or do full exhaust and cams.

Right, it will only be 9 pounds total. Eventually I will do full exhaust and cams along with an engine build. In the mean time, I just want to squeeze more power out of it . I would rather put a new Roush TVS blower on it in the future if I can get it to fit somehow. 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.

No offense because I do appreciate the response but that's all I'm hearing is basically that my car is just slapped together and will blow up anyway or that my supercharger is crap and I need to throw it out. Although that may be true, I just can't do anything about it right now and I'm honestly just lucky to have the car.

Get it tuned by a good tuner and roll. Overspinning the m90 is just going to make it heat up like crazy.

2002 Roush 360R #071 Build Thread

If you want the Roush TVS blower you'll have to find a manifold that it can bolt on to. Then make a custom intake system for the supercharger. The inlet on the blower is on the right side and your CAI system is on the left side of your engine.
If you want to put a smaller pulley on it; upgrading the cooling system is a good idea. It will assist in dealing with the heat soak. Believe me I'm running into the same issues with my 3V Roush. I'm going with the 2.49" pulley from VMP with their 90mm idler. Heat soak is big factor with our cars.

Thanks for the replys. I will definitely have to figure something out when I come to that bridge. It won't be easy to get a 2.3 on there. Maybe I'll just have to ditch that idea at some point. What is the best way to upgrade the cooling system on the car? I haven't seen any issues with a 2.8 pulley. I have a couple friends that have done the pulley swap. Although, it wouldn't surprise me to see heat issues either.

So I have had a rattling in what seemed like the bell housing. I had a mechanic friend diagnose the rattle and he said it sounds like a piece of my clutch is rattling around. So it seems I'm replacing the clutch now. I know that I need a clutch, ford TOB and Pilot bearing. Now, do I NEED to get another flywheel? I'm really bothered about throwing down that much money. ( I know that cars cost money) but if it doesn't need it then I would rather replace it later on when timing is better. What do you guys think? Also, I was planning on getting the Spec stage 2 clutch kit. Thanks in advance!

Might be able to get it resurfaced.

Have to get it out first to have a good look see at it.

It's kinda like brake rotors though in my opinion, it would always be in the back of my mind that I should have put a new one in when I had it apart rather than going the cheaper route.
