Messin with a boss

So recently i was just cruising around and came up on a green 2013 boss mustang and decided to have some fun lol. After some back and forth playing around with this guy (we weren't in a place to run em' or anything ) we both turned in different directions, it got me thinking though, how much would it take for me to mod my car to hang with one? My car is stock aside from a muffler delete. They're 0-60 in the low 4s which at the moment is obviously too much to handle.

Messed with one before i had my tune, only running the headers and intake from a roll and he pulled me. After my tune my car runs like beast. Would be willing to bet i could pull one now. Especially in the 1/4. Traction aint there friend...haha

Are you sure about this? I am pretty sure the Boss being a track oriented car will hook quite a bit better than a stock SS. Could be wrong I guess.

'13 BOSS = 444hp
'13 GT = 420hp
LS3 = 426hp
L99 = 400hp

w/ their lighter weight advantage, I'd guess the SS would have to clear 500hp to overtake the 302.

Yep. The 392 hemi that weighs well over 4k is neck and neck with a stock 2013-14 GT 5.0. All these muscle cars are pigs and need a diet.

Love the 2013 boss. The front and tail light change's are awesome. One of the best mustangs ever made imo.

I'll admit they look good. But they're almost always driven by the douchiest douchers at least in my area.

I hear the Boss 302 is a blast to drive and I agree it's pretty sweet looking! But, there is something about the front end of a GT500 that I think is just so cool.

I have a 13 boss and yes it is a blast to drive. On stock tires (pirellis) traction is not their freind at all but when it does bite watch out it is way quicker than my ls-3. Best part is all forged internals so it is just begging for some form of forced induction. Some of the the mustang forums that i follow have some guys claiming 11.9-11.5 on slicks and skinnies in the 1/4. Dont know this to be true but they claim it.

Perhaps. But in my experience, performance car owners as a whole tend to have a large number of what you call "douchiest douchers". Porsches, M3s, Camaros, Mustangs and the like tend to attract people who want their car to define any lack of self, they themselves have. A powerful car makes them feel special, and they tend to brag about it a lot, bench race more and generally drive with disregard for others around them. Fortunately there are the true enthusiasts, who buy and appreciate these cars, and have the skill, training, experience and common sense to enjoy them at their fullest, on a track.

The Pirelli's need to be warm to be sticky. Otherwise you can break the rear end with even the slightest movement of the go peddle.

I agree 100%, the other day I parked next to a 13' boss, as I was getting out he was getting in and I said "sure is a nice car you have there". He response was looking at my car and saying "yeah yours is alright". Wtf?! I mean have a little respect..

I've stopped and talked to many camaro and challenger owners, all super nice and just respectful of a fellow car enthusiast. Mustang owners on the other hand wont even give anybody the time of day it seems like. I dont know if thats just the ones in my area or not.. and i have a couple friends with mustangs.
