The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 has truly lived up to its nameplate and the Boss moniker isn’t exactly one to learn; it’s one to earn. So many of us had been thinking Ford would have come back with a 2012 Mustang to sweep the sweet Shelby Mustang aside temporarily in the spotlight…and we were right. Hey, what’s not to like? The car has insanely-hot styling cues, 444 horses underhood, and now, a means to bring upon an even louder, more aggressive presence.
A team at Fox Motorsports took hold of a 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca and went to work removing the exhaust restrictors, cataloging exhaust notes for us, before & after modification. So what do you do to a good thing to make it better? Get more of it!
Keep going to see both videos of the 2012 Boss 302 Mustang singing its amazing song.
What’s cooler than a Ford Mustang on the track, pitted against its enemies? Several of today’s Mustangs put to the test against their own limits as well as each other’s. Inside Line has put up a very slick video and writeup that any Mustang fan will be pumped-up to soak in. The gunslingers at the O.K. Corral: the Mustang V6, the Mustang GT, the Boss 302 Laguna Seca, and the Shelby GT500.
Between races on the skid and the 1.6-mile course at Streets of Willow, the final victor was decided. To no surprise to anyone, the higher the price tag and marks of performance lead to the ultimate king.

If you’ve gotten your hands on a new 2011 Ford Mustang GT lately, then you are no doubt enjoying a serious collection of horsepower. So what if we told you that the aftermarket companies aren’t about to let you down in the modification department? Right. You’d not be surprised, moreover, pleased to know that Steeda Autosports, amidst the masses, has come up with a new performance induction kit for the latest installation of the 5.0-liter Ford Mustang.
This upgrade to the 2011 Mustang utilizes the BOSS 302 composite intake as the base, coupled with a tuned cold-air intake, and results in some marked performance improvements throughout the powerband.

What happens when you mix a NASCAR driver, Bristol Motor Speedway, a Ford Racing 2011 Mustang GT, and pit them against the toughest competitor out there…the clock? An awesome display of skill & horsepower, that’s in the least! David Ragan put down the net to his Ford Fusion and took the reins of a tweaked-out 2011 Mustang GT in an attempt to post up a serious half-mile time. How did he fair? He posted a new production car speed & time record of 98.497 miles per hour in just 19.481 seconds. Pretty awesome feat!
So while that doesn’t sound all too impressive to those of us used to 1320 times, well, put it like this: the best of super bikes was only able to eek out a time just a tenth slower & a mph slower, also. That’s nuts; a Mustang beating a bike around the track in a 1/2-mile sprint!

After we showed you the 2012 Mustang BOSS 302 from Ford Racing and its awesome TracKey feature back in November, we got lots of questions on when we would see this new tech in action. Our inquisition is now pacified…
This little piece of pocket tech from Ford Racing allows for direct personality shift between street and track performance trims. The standard black key does all the regular, simple functions one expects in a carved piece of metal. The red TracKey, however, engages a software program which changes over 200 power train parameters.

While the boys at Hot Rod were busy capturing the latest batch of Shelby goodness we saw late last week, they kept idle minimized with some additional display of Ford Mustang madness. A 2011 Shelby GT350 was pitted against the pavement with one modus operandi; shred the tires in a wondrous, thick screen of smoke. Only a crew from the ever-popular magazine could make one like this and let it fly; it’s just awesome. Check out the video, inside!
What do you get when you take two Shelby creations, tons of horsepower, favorable power-weight ratios, and an open track? Duh. Smiles for miles!
