Boss 302 Intake Manifold

Has anyone had the Boss 302 Intake Manifold installed and if so, how much did it cost?

Re: Boss 302 Intake Manifold

you will need the installation kit for it...you will need a custom tune to go with it. Neither Ford Racing or Ford offer a tune, meaning that you power train warranty will be gone. Other than that, you will probally be looking at around $400 labor....and $1000-$1200 for parts..counting the intake.

Thanks for the reply man. I bought the intake manifold already and I just added a JLT cai with a tune from BAMA tuning so I'm hoping that Bama already programmed my tune for the manifold as well. I just wanted to see what a ball park figure was for the install and labor. Thanks again man.

Why are you telling people you need a tune? You don't. The car cranks, drives, and keeps perfect afr with the factory tune.

Edit: The intake is $379.00 and you DON'T need an "installation kit".

You'll have a low end torque loss and only gain about 7 or 8 hp ifbu don't have it tuned for the new intake

You have low end torque loss and gain 3-4 hp if you tune for it....

It's not an advertisement.. It's a complete break down on the boss 302... Also have you noticed that you are literally the ONLY person that has said this???

If it were an advertisement they most certainly wouldn't even think about mentioning that there would be a low end torque loss and basically no hp gain.. That would not help them sell more intakes..

You said that you would only gain 3-4 hp WITH a tune.. Where as everything else says you will gain 7 or 8 WITHOUT a tune.. Therefore if you tune the car you will see much bigger gains.. All I said to start with was that there would be 7-8 hp gain and a low end torque loss without a tune.. You are the one that wanted to argue that

You are comparing a boss 302 to a GT with a boss intake. Not the same engine or valvetrain.

Adding a boss intake with a factory tune to a stock GT will net a loss of power across the board, as the boss intake does nothing but lose HP until almost 7k rpm, where the factory tuned rev limiter would shut the throttle plate.

You are reading things in magazines that survive by profits from advertising. I have been there and done the comparisons myself. I have disassembled the entire coyote platform, with the exception of pulling the shortblock. I know the ins and outs of these cars after spending hours of my time and way too much money.

Provide proof that you gain more that 5 hp by installing the boss intake to a stock GT?

YOU'RE intolerable.. Once again I don't feel like WASTING my time.. It's a forum not English class... I'm not the one with anything to argue.. There are publications that back up what I'm saying and plenty of people on this forum also.. Whereas you stand alone on YOUR side of the argument.. I agree to disagree and I'm done..

Your argument that magazines are corrupted and biased toward advertisers is something that could be possibly true. However, agreeing with a magazine does not make someone stupid.

The recent rash of people being ******** to each other is going to stop.

And once again all I did was state what I have read and heard from several reliable sources.. You tell me to prove that a stock gt will gain more than 5 hp with a new tune and the boss intake... Prove that it doesn't? If you had read the entire article you would know that they aren't trying to market adding the intake to stock gt's this was simply a article on the boss 302.. If they were trying to get people to buy more they wouldn't have mentioned tq loses and only a couple hp gain.. There is definitely corruption in advertising but not in this case.. This was a factual break down of the boss 302 and comparison to the coyote engine not something you can lie about..

Re: Boss 302 Intake Manifold

Gained 35 , 28 SAE corrected hp on a already not stock GT , this is with a tune for the intake on a dyno ... with the right gear 373+ the tq loss down low is not noticable at all . The BOSS intake will make power on a 5.0 gt .

Re: Boss 302 Intake Manifold

My only issue with the Boss intake is that it makes power in high RPMs,almost to the point where a street car wont benifit from it. Great for a track car.

How would you know? You don't have **** but articles like everyone to go buy. Do you even have a dyno for your car? Or track numbers? If not shut up. cause you always have something to say about some ones car but have shown **** with your own car.

You will need a tune with the boss. I have it. With out tune your a/f will be off some, and the car will not rev to it's full potential.

I just retuned and dyno my car today. 464whp/389wtq. This was with 4.10 gears and 295/55/15s which will hurt your numbers some.

With the gears and traction you will never notice the slight tq loss.

Also with out some gear you will not want the boss. You will not stay in the power band.

Between lts and boss I gained 50whp and and didn't lose no wtq with both. My car makes big gains from 6800 rpms where stock intake fell off. All way to 7700 rpms where I red line now and shift.

I already had Intake / bama tune , LT headers and catted X pipe before I installed the Boss intake , like wnt2gofst said with gear and tires you wont notice any Tq loss , I have 373s and 295/55/15 et streets as well and the car starts to pull like mad at 6K and doesn't stop. I got an new tune and dyno at Woodbine Motor sports when I had the intake installed

Even the 10qtq loss down low you will not notice..If some one says they can they are retarded.
