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 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.

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
