3.8 Boss

I've looked every where and i can't seem to find what all the "boss" upgrade dose.

Is it just a nifty sticker?

If you could post me a link, or explain exactly what all i have going for me that'd be great. The "you have about 20 more hp then a stock 3.8" dosen't really explain much.

hrmm as far as I know the only "Boss" mustang was the 302, a 3.8L can never be a "boss"

No, you buy the upgrades from Larry Shinoda's company (he developed the Boss Mustang in 1969) and once all the upgrades are done, you get a certification. To my knowledge, there are no certified Boss 3.8L cars, but you can still buy the spoilers, etc, from Shinoda.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

well...I have the "3.8 Boss" on the side of my car. The only reason I think its stock is because i've seen one other car with the sticker. I guess I can ask the ford place, or never know.

I'm kind of upset that its so hard to find. But at the same time I'm gald you guys don't know eather, hiding my lack of car knowlged for another stupid question further on down the road.

It's probably jsut a sticker job. Team Shinoda have the only rights to the name. If it's not there, it's someone ripping them off .. .

I can go ahead and put GT 500 on my car, but that doesnt mean I have a 3.8L GT 500.

all cars that are built by Jim with Shinoda's graphics are certified and badged cars. If you order the graphics and install them yourself, the car is not certified or badged. The web sites are as follows: www.GetABoss.com ,www.Shinodaperf.com and www.Teamshinoda.com
