    The difference between the Mustang's standard 5.0L V8 and the Boss 302 variant is more than just 32 horsepower. The Boss 302 features a new high-flowing intake manifold; CNC-machined cylinder heads; upgraded exhaust valves; forged pistons, connecting rods and crankshaft; a more aggressive camshaft and more. All of those upgrades cost a pretty penny, though. Ford Racing lists the Boss 302 V8 crate engine at $11,999.00, while the standard 5.0 will cost you just $6,999.00.

    Don't compare domestic V8 pricing to European, you will just pull your hair out.

    But the S65 doesn't need a blower.

    If BMW got into better aftermarket support and selling crate engines they would do themselves and their owners a great service.

    THINK ABOUT IT




    It's cheaper than M6 headers
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Almost all of them.

    If the S85 V10 can fit in the Z4 so can this.
