The only thing I like about it is that it has cutouts from the factory! now that's awesome.

Fixed it

Could you point me in the direction of this race between the 2011-2012 GT500 vs the Boss302 where the Boss won?

The 2011-2012 GT500 PP has yet to be tested at Laguna Secca, the only lap time there was with the old heavy iron block 2010 model with crap tires.

This is the only compo I could find and the GT500 was still the victor.

The Ultimate Mustang Track Test - Inside Line

I would trade my GT500 today for a Laguna Secca edition Boss302. It just has so many cool features over my GT500 PP like dual mode exhaust, launch control, track key with lumpy idle, 180mph speedo, adjustable dampers, adjustable steering input and Recaro's.

Umm...I love the Boss..but I do not want one. I respect it completely, love what Ford did with it, and cannot wait to see how the General and Dodge respond.

No doubt, Joe, not to mention the "factory" tune that makes the car more agressive without having to go to an aftermarket tuner and risk the warranty.

However I think Ford may be more lenient with tunes and warranty work. Can any of our Mustang "friends" chime in on that?

I never understood ford hate. Mustangs and Camaros, Tahoes and explorers are all made from the same plastic, metal and basic ingredients. I have owned 2 explorers and they were great trucks. Ya, I favor GM and have owned more of them but thats due to the looks of the vehicles. I would drive a boss in a heartbeat. I Wouldn't trade my SS, but would buy a 302 for sure if I had the cash. To say one of these American car companies is vastly superior then the other is idiotic IMO.

Not since the rash of shitty aftermarket tunes has created detonation problems causing piston failures. Ford issued a TSB to address:

Run a good reputable tune and nothing to worry about.

Love my camaro.. Won't trade it.. I do however live across from a guy that has a boss and it is a very capable car. Def deserves respect on the street. Having said that the only ford I'll own is a company truck because they suck to work on. GM has the right idea of easy to work on. My choice of GM over ford is based on that alone.

Who cares about the traitor label, trade that Camaro for a Boss! It is one bad ass car and will smoke both the Camaro SS and the Challenger 392.

Unless you are racing this car evertime you drive it or 90% of the time I wouldn't buy it. As they have taken all things out like I believe A/C and other things that are considered luxury items in these cars. So if you want just performance then cool, but if you want the comfort and performance then this wouldn't be the car for you. And we know how everyone hear seems to bitch about all the goodies and not having them.

Hopefully GM has changed from the days when the motor had to be pulled to change the plugs...... (W Bodies)

What W-car required that? None of the V6 cars are too difficult. The mid 70's Monza V8s were a different story.

+1
I would like to own a Viper too, but I wouldn't get rid of my Z06 for one.
