Just got a 2012 Boss... now what?

Hey all, as the title says, I just traded in my 2011 5.0 for a 2012 Boss 302. Besides the obvious "get the track key" (once the wife cools down after the vehicle purchase, I'll do just that), what else could/should I do with this beast?

Supercharge and turbo charge? I assume you jest my friend. Perhaps I should restate my question. What should I do with this beast that isn't impossible/redundant, or won't destroy the drive train?

Do you care about the warranty? If not get a good dyno tune. Where are you located?

Perfect! I was hoping you would say TX. Maximum Velocity Performance (Tracy Keller) in San Antonio.

More power is always better but for me the 444 HP is enough for me for awhile at least lol. Yes I could tune and get 40-50 extra squeezed out but it's not worth losing my 100k warranty just yet :p

Oh yea BTW get a MGW you'll thank me sooner than later

I just couldn't have a Boss without pulling some extra HP out of it. My 5.0 now makes as much as a Boss if not more at the wheels.......I'm just lacking all that awesome handling ability.

Lol the forged internals of this engine beg for FI but if/when I do squeeze it I'm going for 500 NA RWHP. It won't take much with a good tune and a few bolt ons lol

You should try taking her out to dinner and get her some flowers. Send her a card at work.

Don't get me wrong, I took care of her birthday, I just didn't deem it wise to push my luck further.
