Conversion: 2011 GT/CS to Boss 302

I need help!
I trying to turn my 2011 Mustang GT/CS into a Boss 302, to a point. Mostly I want to do everything except the paint and the front seating. I already have the Boss 302 Fasca and I know you have the Boss 302 intake manifold etc. Can some one help me put together a list of parts I need to get for the conversion.

You need boss heads $1500 each. Boss cams 900 each set, boss suspension looking at least 2000 being rear different is 700+. Boss seats 2600-3000 a set. Boss steering wheel 300, boss wheels from Ford are 400+ each.


Your better off trading it in for a boss. Specially being labor alone will cost you least 3k for engine alone.

Best part about the boss is forged internals...I've heard a lot about adding on the boss intake and there are very little gains. You want power? Get it ported and polished. Contrary to popular belief the coyote doesn't choke at 7000 RPM. The boss intake is a big hunk of plastic. I would style it your own custom way, the boss is cool, because it's a boss. There is something sweet about limited production. Make it yours man, not factory

Where do you get little gains from the boss? I gained 40whp and 30wtq going to it. Its people that put it on and Rev the engine to 7000-7400 still that see no gains. Rev it to 7800 with the boss intake. Take advantage of it.

And yes I for got you will need new pistons, cranck and rods. When I bought them for my manual it was 1400 for the boss setup.

You can get faster then a boss with out converting to a boss. Honestly instead of buying everything to convert it would be easier to buy the boss engine. Which is 11k. Swap it in and sell your engine to make up for cost. That or slap a blower on your car and destroy a boss with one mod.

You will always find some one faster though. Some one always has deeper pockets.

Tune. On my manual car I had a boss intake, full exhaust, cold air and a dyno tune. Rpms was set at 7800 and I shifted at 7700.

And no boss does not have different tranny.

I had a 2011 5.0 manual. Traded it in for a 2012 5.0 auto. Got tired of tranny issues with big power.

My car now has a boss intake, paxton supercharger, off road x pipe, circle d 3800 stall, aluminum driveshaft, lowered, rims/tires, GT500 rear spoiler and diffuser, boss/cs front, 3"cowl Hood. And I'm sure some stuff I forgot. Before stall ran a 10.9@129. Now stall in it gets retuned this week by Jon Lund and will take to track to try to get lower 10's.

It will help. It helps drop weight and free some HP. Biggest thing I wanted was the stregnth of it.

Oh he didnt say anything about staying na in the thread so it just seems kind of crazy to do all those mods and still be less than one mod not to mention getting into the cams and heads etc more things to potentially go wrong

^^look above he said n/a

Btw a supercharger responds just like n/a thats why superchargers can be perferred to turbos but since technology advanced so much turbo lag doesnt exist anymore. You do have to set it up right though you cant just slap on a huge turbo

Jpc ran low 11's high 10's with same package. It actually would be much safer then just slapping a blower on. You are not going to slap a roush on for 5700 and it be perfect like that n/a build. Once blower is on have do clutch/driveshaft to handle power. Plan on doing rear clutch pak in diff. Each build require more then just slapping the n/a stuff or blower on to be safe.

Turbo has always out performed SC just people think slapping a huge Turbo means fast. Same thing can happen when use to big SC. I talked to someone to day with a new boss that wished they didn't get the biggest KB they made on it.

Re: Conversion: 2011 GT/CS to Boss 302

I have a 2012 Boss 302...between what you dropped on the CS and all the mods you are considering, I think you'll surpass the $45K out the door I paid for mine. Also, consider your resale value !! jmho Good LucK on the project !!
