2005 Shinoda Boss *long read*

Mustang Monthly:September 2005 edition

Jim Klock was quick with his once request: "Please dont use the boss is back because we've been building the Boss Shinoda Mustangs for the past 10 years."
While the much used slogan from Fords 82 GT advertising campaign would certainly be the easy way out, for an article title, we'll admit Klock has a point. Ever since Larry Shinoda re-created the Boss concept with his graphics package for the 94 Mustang, Boss Shinoda Mustangs have dazzled the eyeballs with stripes,spoilers, and wheels. With the new 05 Mustangs retro styling, the Boss package is more stunning then ever, especially in red with white graphics as the prototype shown.
Shinoda who created the boss name and image for the Mustang Boss 302s, 351s and 429s while working as a Ford designer in 68-70, would be proud, especially since Klock is making an all out efford this year to inject more performance into the Boss Shinoda package. As the program manager for Shinoda Performance Vehicles, Klock's goal is to make the Boss Shinoda as bad as it looks to help erase the "sticker car" stigma, which the Boss Shinoda 'Stangs earned early on when only decals were offered.The base 05 legacy model comes standard with visualss only, but everything on the SPV option list is available at extra cost. The front chin spoiler was designed by SPC, tbut the rear spoiler acually a reproduction '71 spoiler from national Parts Depot. According to Klock, the shorter pedestals on the '71 version worked better on the 05 decklid. We have to admit, it looks pretty good on the retro 05 mustang.
The level 1 boss shinoda packs more punch with cold air induction performance tuning and exhausts, and handling modifications like Boss Control System springs and shocks/struts. Level 2 packages take performance up another big notch with supercharging for an estimated 450hp, a performance clutch and aditional handling enhancements.
The Level 3 Boss Shinoda is more like Level 10 with its standard twin-turbo setup. Although still under development when we visited Shinoda Performance in May, Klok is predicting 600hp at the rear wheels.Now thats a Boss.
The top of the line Boss Shinoda package is the "stoker-editions" with a 310ci version of the 05 Mustangs 4.6 3v engine. Although naturally aspired 400rwhp cant match the twin turbo, the stroker edition will feature a number of unique components. Like a special "retro" stripe package, a shaker system and magnum 500 wheel package with 17x9 upfront and 17x11s at the rear. Optional upgrades like the Baer performance brake package and a T56 six-speed manual transmission are available for all 5 models.As in the past, anyone can order and install the Boss stripes and spoilers, as well as any of the offered equipment. However, starting with the 05 models, only Mustangs built at the SPV facility will be certified as true Boss Shinoda models with a numbered dash emblem.Drop ship orders from Ford can be places at Orville Beckford Ford/Mercury in Milton, Florida. The cars are then delivered to SPV for the Boss Shinoda conversion and can be shipped to local dealers for final delivery.

The decals seem a bit much, but that's just how the Boss is. Pretty pimp.

Re: 2005 Shinoda Boss *long read*

can't complain about the decals with 600 rwhp, but yea the hood is a little too much though. what's going to happen to the cobra if these are putting out between 400-600HP? i assume they'll be in a similar price range.

some boss stuff is ok, but 99% of their look department is WAY over done.
