    Hey 02360Spider the standard 360 head pipe is black and CS is blue I am waiting on the proper claps to install the CS head pipe I will check to see how they are different. I think they are the same though maybe a little lighter .

    Factory Challenge Racing exhaust found new in the box, with no cats and test pipe the engine bay never really gets any hotter than a normal car. I never even think about it any more. I use to have to leave my garage door open and blow fan on the engine bay to cool it down huge difference in temp now .

    question: do you find more crackle and burps when lifting throttle or downshift(with no throttle) than an factory setup?

    I'm assuming the CS anti roll bar is different from that of the standard 360? Does any aftermarket companies make one for the 360 or can the CS version fit on a standard 360? Interested as I plan to get more aggressive suspension setup on my standard 360.

    one of the bad thing being live in china is that you can only view youtube on certain days, if u are lucky. Google had a very bad relationship with china so that banned it!!! I use bing.com here.

    so im giong to see the utube later

    BUT, its weird, u might want to ask mase engineering if they shorten the delay of fuel cutoff after throttle off, since any restriction u remove from the exhaust u'll get noticeable crackle.

    In the end does it drive like a real cs? Would a cs owner be fooled?

    Not trying to fool any one LOL , the biggest difference between the CS and standard 360 is the weight. This 360 conversion build weights less than a CS by over a hundred pounds

    What was the gain for the 430 TBs? You also had to change airbox lids? What else is involved in that mod?

    I think I honestly viewed this tread over and over 10x now. I love this project.
    You have inspired me to build one which I will start soon but this one is crazy...not sure I can hang to this extreme. I will get in contact with you if thats ok...
    Thank you for all your support and info for this build.
    Awesome build!!!!!!

    Update on my 360 conversion taking it to Ferran Automotive in Jacksonville FL, the owner of the shop is Mike Ferran . He has been a mechanic for over 40 years and currently owns himself a CS and 430 Scud and a ford GT40 so he knows these cars inside and out . He going to install CS anti roll bar flush and change all fluids, replacing ac compresses and new ac belt replacing all the pinch clamps. Installing the new CS blue vent pipe. Changing out the F1 filter and pull the factory Challenge oem race exhaust witch has singe tips and modify to duel tips. I am very picky about my 360 and I trust him totally, very fair on the price and you get what you pay for. I would very much like to get your opinion 1 should I remove the F1 rain light 2 remove the rear tow hook 3 convert to duel tips ?? Looking forward to your opinion thanks

    I want to share one more thing it is about replacing the ac compressor I spent allot of time trying to get the best value rebuild or new one, from a my research rebuilds do not last very long and the factory oem ones cost to much over rebuilding I all most went rebuild but I found the same one the factory use made by Delphi found one at AW Italian in New Jersey they are asking 1298.00 I always ask for a discount so they sold me one 1000.00 shipped Fedx https://www.awitalian.com/AC-Compressor--180041_p_5153.html hope this helps some one out one day

    Stunning car Randy

    I would leave the rear rain light , and go twin pipe but loose the rear tow hook.

    Maybe go slightly larger than stock on the tailpipe similar to the Capristo system
