I think if you put the 430 front end on a 360 it'll be the perfect combo.....

    Looks like you can probably buy the 430 front fenders, bumper, lights and put it on a 360. That'll be the best of both worlds.

    I love the 430 front end and the 360 rear end. Kinda like when people with 348's put the 355 tail lights on.

    Would it piss people off if this mod was done?....the purists I mean.... hehe.

    There's only one problem: if you get the front end of the F430 on a 360, you still don't have all the other (tremendous!!!) benefits of the new car. So the better suggestion would be to put the rear end of the 360 on a F430! ;)

    that's true about the performance of the 430. I've thought about putting the rear end of a 360 on a f430. But it seems like changing the front end of a car is way easier.

    I have seen the 430 in person and it looks much better than it does in photos....maybe I just have to get used to it.

    No no no
    the 360 is perfect by itself, don't mess it up with a 430

    I agree with Webby.

    I think the front end of the 360 looks way better than that of the 430.

    If I were to change anything, I would'nt mind having the F430 engine in the 360.

    Front end of the F430 looks far better in real than on pics.

    Put the High flow CATS on the 360, get your cams degreed in, make sure that the timing is EXACTLY right, and maybe install the CS cam, and you'll have about 430 - 440 HP, not quite as much as the 430, but pretty close. Since the 360 is a bit lighter, with a little carbon fibre, maybe you can run with the 430, but it's still got better brakes, better suspension, and is a serious upgrade on the 360, so you aren't going to get an equivalent car.
