Not A Drag Racing Article, Was this really a Boss 302

I saw a car sporting Boss 302 Hash Marks (Black with 302 Logo), color was Gotta Have It Green. He was two cars and the other lane in front of me. There was a grey mustang in the other lane. Couldn't see what model it was.

The light hit red and they started out. I heard the Boss starting up and the next thing I knew it got it's hiney handed to it.

Highly Illegal of course. Can you get a Boss 302 in the Gotta Have It Green Color. This car had 2013 taillights on it. Was it someone who just bought a couple of 302 stickers and it wasn't really a 302?

I looked and couldn't find any Boss 302s Green. I checked for the 2013.

A real Boss or a wannabe Boss?

Lol, well everything I'm reading (secondhand info I know) is that the rods are actually pretty stout and a great budget rod. Not good for a 1400hp motor or anything but fine for 500-700 with some guys pushing over 800 but you never know for sure without actually seeing the build.

Also MMR legit forged rods are $299 so there is that.

Have a friend who did the boss rotating assembly. Rods look just like the gt rods, just powder forged. His motor took a **** by the way, lasted a year though lol

Like I said, legit forged rods are $299 and so are good Terminator Manley take outs lol. I don't see the point in trying to skimp $130 on a build aimed at higher power levels. Or even trying to skimp more than that... or at all. You get what you pay for...
