Paul Brown takes the #50 BOSS 302S Ford Mustang to the top

All summer long, we kept Ford Mustang fans posted on the hot racing action Paul Brown has put down in the #50 2012 Mustang BOSS 302S racer and now, he’s got even more to be proud of.  Brown recently placed first in the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge Race, solidifying the GTS Championship title.  Just one more race remains in the 2011 season, but Brown has already matched honors with the legendary BOSS 302 racer, Parnelli Jones–if he gets one more “W” in his final race at Road Atlanta, he’ll get to scribe his name in the books of Ford Mustang racing legends.

Awesome. We saw Tiger Racing’s Mustang in action back in June at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit and seriously, it put a good hurting on the track.  Brown’s got some good mojo going behind the wheel of this 2012 BOSS 302S and we wish nothing but the best for him & Tiger Racing.

Boss 302 crate motors now available from Ford Racing

Earlier this week, Ford Racing put the rumor to rest that new Boss 302 5.0-liter V8 crate motors would be available outside of the 2012 Boss 302 Mustang shell.  The Ford Racing catalog features the 5.0 crate engine under part #M-6007-M50B and will come fully capable of the same neck-jerk power we’ve all been drooling over…a wonderful 444 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of tire smokin’ goodness.  So what’s the wallet damage for this pony car power plant?  The Boss 302 crate motor will hold a sticker of $11,999…equaling a $5K bump in price over the Mustang GT crate motor’s price tag of $6,999.  That doesn’t seem all to bad at first blush, but when reflection shines back, you realize it’s a steep bill for a mere 32 horsepower more.  Guess the branding is the bulk of the cost…

Nonetheless, keep reading to see all the nitty gritty details on the Ford Racing aluminum 5.0-liter Mustang Boss 302 crate engine.

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…

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.
