    Does anyone know the differences between the GT 5.0L and the Boss 302? Mainly what makes the Hp difference and the higher red line?

    CNC ported cylinder heads with 1mm bigger valves, different cam profiles, short runner intake manifold. Forged internals help keep her together to the 7,500 redline.

    As noted above. I see the new Boss 302 taking sales away from the GT500 this upcoming year.

    there is lots of media coverage on the subject. I believe I found a good article from one of the mustang magazines, but I can't find the link now. Sorry.

    Pick up the August issue of 5.0 Magazine. They have a huge break down of EVERY part of the Boss 302 engine. It will answer all your questions, with pictures of EVERY part too!
