2013 GT --> 302

So I'm not exactly sure how you guys feel about this. But, basically what I wan't to do is convert my GT into a boss 302. I know i will be a phony but w/e to me I just want to be able to think I have a Boss 302, and honestly if i could go back I would have bought it, because I could have afforded it but I didn't really feel like it was worth it... oh well.

Anyways, there are somethings that will obviously be harder then others, I was going to try to do exterior - engine - interior in that order. Exterior with all the easy things chin spoiler, spoiler, decals, hood, rims. But i cant seem to find anything for badges so i guess I'm going to have to make my own with an airbrush... (unless anyone can help with that) Engine will most likely be the intake manifold and coil covers. And for interior I'm not even going to think about it yet.

So if there's any suggestions, flames, tips or anything you guys can do for me please post. And if it helps, I'm going to tell people its a GT... although of course only if they ask

What year is yours? Do you want it to look,exactly like a boss 302? I dont think its a bad idea but is your,car a daily driver or drag only? I would grab a tuner before you get the manifold unless you get them at the same time. Some things you can get ti make your car better than a boss 302. I would get a supercharger before anything elae imo. Good luck and post before picture if you can then after when you get them on!

It's a DD, I'm not really sure if I wan't to spend 5K on a supercharger yet though... Also it will be awhile since a lot of 2013 parts are not out yet.

I feel you man! My Mustang is the first car I've ever owned by myself. I love it to death Haha. If your gonna make your car a boss 302 at least make your car a bit original instead of going the full boss 302 route with the decals and badges. Not saying it doesn't look good, but you don't own a boss 302 and making it an almost exact copy is like putting a M3 badge on a 328 series. Make your car look like it I guess, but don't put the words Boss302 on it. Imo do the color matching like black and red and use different decals w/o the boss 302 on it. Then tint your car 20% and lower it. Then engine go boss 302 parts or better parts with a boss 302 manifold with a tune and boss 302 quad exhaust with your choice of a axle back. Interior, delete your back seat and get those three circle monitor things. Bam original looking Mustang. No flaming or anything just my opinion. Do what makes you happy!

if you want a Boss, buy a Boss.

if you want a badass GT, buy a supercharger and keep it a GT.

Yea I think you should go get a boss I'm pretty sure you will love it as well. Me and my mustangs friends from work really don't respect other cars that aren't what they really are. There was a guy who had a "saleen" mustang and we went up to him to talk about the car and he told us that it wasn't and my friends made fun of it. It's cool to have the parts but I just don't know like the idea of the boss decals and emblems but hey do what makes you happy .

+1 might be cheaper to buy a boss rather then spend the money trying to make your 13 look like one.

Re: 2013 GT --> 302

How much would it cost to do everything you would have to do to make it look the way you want it???? So, would you be better off just selling your current ride and buying a Boss??? Thats how I would approach it!! All and all.....its your ride and you can do what ever you like

Wow. that looks amazing... I think what I might do is just stick with my GT and make it my own and original. It sounds like from everyone that might just be a better idea. Because if I do get a boss then I probably wont have much extra cash from month to month to buy/save for parts. Who's with me? lol.

Ya don't be a poser, if your gonna go through all that work it would be cheaper to buy a boss. Especially if your getting stock rims they are expensive!! the boss is an awesome car but everyone who knows that it is not a real boss 302 will remind you of it all the time.

Yeah best bet is to be proud of you 5.0.. Still awesome cars to be proud of. Went to a car show the other night.. Tons of corvettes an cameros. Two old fox body's 5.0s show up, that are real clean. Everyone stopped and stared to look and listen. 5.0 is something to be proud of.. It's a working mans muscle car.

Yeah luckily I have them , only thing I don't like though is how they go black when there not on, some people like it though. For me with a black decklid on like a green or blue stang, all that black looks a little off.

Yeah fair enough, I didn't really realize how many people did/would do it.

I must say.. I am proud to see the negativity toward posers on this forum. So proud of u guys lol. Ive said it before and ill say it again, dont be THAT GUY. I wish i would of gotten a boss wen i first bought my 5.0. A few thousand later i love my gt more than anything! Oh and once i add a SC ill be at about the price of a lightly modded boss with more hp. GT>Boss.
