    I just put new fabspeed headers and sport cats on my 360. No CEL and it certainly sounds a bit throatier, if that is a word.

    Bought one with 35k miles, drove it daily and has zero issues. Car is solid as long as you drive it!

    Mine has been decently reliable for what it is. I tend to buy cars with issues for cheap, and then sort them out myself. I find that much more rewarding (and much cheaper!) than giving it to someone else to do. My car sat a while and was rather neglected, but I believe most of my issues are typical, short of the heat exchanger failure, which, while not common isn't exactly rare. The wheel and tire issues can happen to any car. I've had mine for a year. Here is a breakdown.

    Things I have done: (prices are just in parts)
    -Major service with belts ~ $2k
    -Replace heat exchanger and clean system ~$1k
    -Replace upper transmission mount $150 (this was a migraine as mine was corroded in)
    -Replace 10 year old tires $1k
    -Get scuffed and tinted headlights buffed out $80
    -Get the custom chrome wheels stripped, straightened, and powder coated ~$1,200
    -Replace a torn coolant hose $10 from a race shop instead of over $150 everywhere else
    -Had a CEL, Took it in and had it read. Turned out to be Evap. They cleaned it out for free. Time will tell if that fixed it. $50

    Things I still need to do:
    -Clean out headlights
    -Brake fluid change
    -Dash lights don't work
    -The switch that drops your window when you open the door is mispositioned.
    -The dash leather is horribly shrunk
    -Seats could use re-upholstery
    -Needs some paint work

    It sounded better. Slightly louder and crisper, if that makes sense. More responsive, could feel the additional HP. Fabspeed say +15 HP.

    I didn’t get a PPI, but my post sale experience resembles others here.
    Brakes
    Wheel bearings
    Sticky interior
    Belts and fluids
    Door lock cable got disconnected
    Fresh spark plugs
    Some paint wear on seat bolsters

    And then some mods
    Stereo
    Challenge grille
    CS wheels and tires
