2013 Shelby / Boss 302 Engine ?

Howdy all last night at the meeting of the Mustang club I belong to there was a 2013 Boss 302 in GHIG (really a cool color) anyway he stated that the engine in the Boss was the only Balanced/ Blue printed and ported engine that Ford makes. I thought the Shelby's engine was also Balanced/ Blue printed and ported engine. So where can I find some information on the differences between these engines. I know the SC but the internal way Ford put them together. Thanks Mike

In all honesty, I think the boss has the better design. I'm not saying that because mine is a wannabe boss, but more so the process they go through with those engines, specifically.
I still think the shelby is badass tho. just because it's raw power.
I guess a good way to describe it is that the boss is more refined. they took it a step further.

Thanks I am just wondering what they did? I really didn't follow the Boss because I had my head set on the Shelby. I just want to make sure I have a little knowledge of the two because I know I will be asked.

The Boss needs a parking lesson...

You guys should get together for a photo shoot. Both amazing looking cars. I love that DIB/red theme on the 13' Shelby's!

We where at our clubs meeting and there was other cars on the side of the Boss when he parked. After the other two cars left I moved mine over to get a shot of them together. No parking lesson needed just more driveway.
